1/10th nitro stadium trucks are too difficult to drive for most people to enjoy them. It's only worse that they had to share the same tracks as 1/8th (big holes and ruts). They're lots of fun on smooth tracks, you have to use the slipper to limit wheelies.

most all tracks now a days are geared for 8th buggies and truggies, here in minnesota the gas truck class is stronger than ever, as they do require a bit of finese to get around the bigger tracks fast, but it can be done, it comes down to what people want to race

your like the 5th person to have a post about 1/10th gas trucks. I think here in the next year or two if a company comes out with a new 1/10th racing truck we will see a rise in population once more.
