Default 1/10th stadium truck thread.

Who still races their old stadium truck? We recently decided to get the class going for this season due the simple fun factor.

I bought and built a GT2 thinking that it was going to take off this year but it hasn't so when parts become available I'll convert it to SC10GT.

Even if it doesn't a Nitro SC would be a little more fun to play with than an ST.

They are going to have a class for the 1/10 nitro trucks at the Dirt Nitro Challenge next year.

HUH?

I love my 10th scale trucks, I have an AD1, and AD2, another AD1 roller, a full factory team GT2, a bullet proof and still dialed FTGT, and just recently finished an SC10GT conversion on a RTRGT2 I picked up for 50 bucks! Even with all the new parts, and a cheapo HobbyKing .18 I'm into it for less then 200 before electronics. I miss the mid 2000's when the RC Pro Series would have 2-5 heats of 1/10th gas truck during the summer series.

I too miss the times when 1/10 nitro was jus as big as 1/8 nitro....I've still got my old OS CVR .12 just sitting in a box waiting for the day that 1/10 makes a come back!! Of course by now I'd have to find bearings, carb seals, rod (for safe measure), and get a light pinch done to get things back to tip top shape, but it would be well worth the effort if the 1/10 surge took off again...

I don't see the appeal of the SC trucks. too bad that's all EVERYONE runs at the tracks here. it's 1/10 buggy or SC. the buggy is too small and the sc is just too sloppy driving for my liking.

I wish more people was racing the 1/10 4 wheel drive buggy or the 1/10 2wd trucks. it seems like there is 0 interest.

it's so bad that the a LHS is trying to sell the RC10T4.1 RTR's for $220. they're just about trying to give em away.

Default 1/10 scale

I have an OFNA pirate 10 that has been collecting dust a while. This thread makes me want to fire it up again. I remember how stupid fast it was for a .12 engine w/shaft driven 4wd.
