It seems that SC trucks are popular so all the rc companies are jumping on the band wagon etc.

Yep that's the long awaited hyper 10sc nitro. Jammin is making one as well. I just don't see them being as popular or fun as the electric versions.

Agreed. The beauty of SCT is the simplicity and lack of headaches. Adding nitro into the equation takes away almost everything that makes SCT fun. If was wanting the maintenance and expense of nitro, I'd go back to racing 1/8 scale

Now, if someone made a TRUE 1/8 scale nitro SCT, I might be interested.....as in the size of a stretched 1/8 truggy or a bit bigger....

AE's SC8 was a huge flop

I just don't think nitro is a good fit. What I like most about Short Course is that it is easy to race indoors in the winter. During the summer I like to play with the big boys, but it's a pain indoors.

1/8 nitro SC already happened. AE SC8.

Agreed! There was a few here last summer, but no real competitive racing. It just didn't work out.

Hopefully its a very scale short course/trophy truck...

Who knows...with their live axle production...could be!

No, the sc8 is not 1/8 scale any more than the sc10 that uses the same sized body is. Based on an 1/8 scale buggy maybe, but it's dimensions are still 1/10 scale. I want a TRUE 1/8 scale SCT...like sized halfway between the current sct crop and the baja 5t. And while I'm at it I want it to be 4wd and come with a scale rollcage I loved racing 1/8 truggy the last few years...but a true 1/8 4x4 SCT would be off the chain

Dear god if it happens to be a 1/8th buggy like the author of the artical states it will become even more of crowed in that market. But I really doubt it. My bet like most everyones here is a Short Coarse truck.

It going to be the new Durango 1/8th nitro buggy. You guys need to read more LOL

Axial is owned by the same parent company who owns Durango. Axial hired Scott Hughes away from Pro-Line. It's only speculation but don't bet against it.
