If you are going to be racing more then bashing, go with the sc10. If you get serious about racing, you will want a sensored brushless setup down the road

The associated is definitely the more popular truck for racing but that's not to say the Aarma won't be competitive. Our local track had a chap running an aarma and was very successful with it.

I think it is worth noting that aarma is somehow affiliated with Durango, and they are no slouch in the racing realm.


Personally, I like seeing a different or unique vehicle running. Same dude running the aarma also whooped a$$ with a Bandit buggy. Awesome to see a "basher" beating out the $500 race machines.

SC10 has more race specific hop ups readily available, but it might be fun to experiment with the Fury.

That's why I was thinking bout the arrma though it's because of the cooling fan on the esc and it's already Lipo ready were the sc10 is not..but what makes the sc10 better I'm kind of new to the sport

It's probably the most popular SC for racing. With that comes a ton of aftermarket support. Also there is a setup sheet for the SC10 for any kind of track you can think of. Whatever you are running on someone else did it already and thought up a setup that works.

I don't think one is better than the other. The SC10 will be easier make faster while the Fury will make you think about tuning.

As a beginner I'd recommend the SC10. Unless of course you want to learn the ins and outs of tuning and forge new territory with a unique platform.
