agreed!

this is what Stadium Trucks were supposed to look like, not the open wheel messes that we've come to know and love.

In the late 80s, conversion kits were popular, companies were trying different things to attract customers.

However, Traxxas popularized the SC trucks as we know them today

Word. Don't forget Rod Millen, Roger Mears, and Ricky Johnson. The MTEG series was the bomb man. Besides, back in those days short course trucks as we know them now were junk. Stock frame, horrible suspension, and steel bodies- nothing in comparison to the awesome machines the MTEG trucks were.

Funny how wrong those Tamiyas look now, especially if you look at an SC8, that thing is right. hey does this count as a Pro4 ?

Many R/C enthusiasts believe that Traxxas was the first company to introduce short course trucks. In 1990, Team Associated was selling a Circa short course truck body (PN: ASC6174) for their legendary RC10 buggy. This conversion kit was 22 years ago, it is amazing! At this time, 2wd buggies were the reigning electric off-road class and electric stadium trucks appeared about a year later.

So, now when your friends will tell you that Traxxas has invented the short course truck, you now know what to answer them!
No, they weren't the first to come up with it. They were the first to make it popular and perfect it. They put SCT on the map. The Traxxas hating boobs everywhere just can't accept fact.
