I would love to race 1/10 gas truck but no one seems to want to race them anymore.
i would love to see 1/10 come back full time again, i still run mine alot during my off seson, it improves your driving alot, they are so difficult to race. but i love mine so much couldnt part with it when the races started to slow and all the motor had through it was after run oil. but i think it may come back one of these days, we have couple races a year or 1/10 stadium still but thats about it, i still practice with it though....

Why do you think that no one is racing 1/10 gas truck anymore?

1/8 Buggy year round here. Truggy count is getting light, gas trucks is fading, and monster truck is almost non-existant. 1/10 Stock truck & stock Buggy are great, and 1/10 4WD is commin back strong.
