R/C Trucks- Remote Control Monster Truck, Nitro, Gas, Short Course
1/8 and 1/10 RC Monster Truck
Big tires and realism. Mostly for bashing though there are still plenty of organized racing. Choose either nitro or electric power.

1/8, 1/10 and 1/5 Short Course Trucks
The hottest class in the last few years. Growing in popularity are the electric 1/10th scale 4WD SCT. One of the cheapest way to get into the hobby. Plenty of organized races.

1/10 Nitro RC Truck
Typically the rear wheel drive stadium rc trucks models. Mostly for playing. Used to be a popular racing class. Uses special "nitro" fuel blended for 2-stroke nitro car engines.
0 - 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. Powerful enough to pull wheelies. Photo credit: Traxxas.com
1/5 and 1/8 Gas RC Trucks
These are the gasoline powered remote control trucks. Not to be confused with nitro powered engines. Long run times and cheap gasoline.
1/10 Scale RC Truck
Electric powered 4x4 r/c pickup trucks with 3-speed transmission. Used for trail running, rock crawling and mud bogging fun.
If dirt is not your thing, how about driving sideways and sliding with style...
>> RC Drift Car
Ultimate in realism is the 1/10 Tamiya 4x4 pickup truck with working lights, engine sound and 3 speed manual transmission.
1/10 short course rc trucks are cheap, popular and fun. Great for beginners.
