Default What happened to 1/10?

So I've been back in the hobby for a few months after about 6 years being out, and I was wondering what happened to 1/10 scale nitro! When I left it was big and truggy was pretty small. Now its gone and truggy is big! Just wondering what reason, and how long its been dead for? I've always been an 1/8 buggy guy but it seems all the nitro 1/10 scale guys either moved up to 1/8 truggy or electric sc.

1/10th nitro is an older class from way back. Today's nitro motors make much more power than they did "back in the day", and it's getting harder to put that power down consistently with a 1/10th 2WD stadium truck.

Like all things though, the pendulum will eventually swing back to it, but for now, I think 1/8th scale is the place to be for nitro. Electric 1/10th is still very popular....
