Stadium Trucks

The stadium truck segment is by far the oldest and largest in the RC hobby. Stadium trucks are generally 2WD. They have the look and feel of the stadium racers we've all grown up with. They feature powerful electric or nitro powerplants, pin-type rear tires for great traction on all types of surfaces, and four-wheel independent suspension, and they can easily be upgraded with all manner of suspension goodies, realistic truck bodies, and more.

Cheap Trail Trucks

e know a lot of you guys and gals are into rockcrawling. There's just something about conquering those rocks and going where no other four-wheeled vehicle can go. But building a trail-worthy ride that's not going to spit a driveshaft or bust a locker doesn't come cheap. So if you're itching to get into the sport but on a limited budget, or perhaps you want something you can break out between runs, then you should take a look at these 'Ao-scale electric crawlers. From competition level to the more basic models, there's a crawler for every taste and budget. These beauties have features like beadlock wheels, realistic crawler tires, multilink suspension for unreal articulation, and of course popular crawler bodies like Jeeps and more.

Traxxas has been at it since 1986 (as has HPI), and one of the company's most popular trucks has been the Rustler line (right) of stadium trucks. The Rustler now comes in a standard electric model, a brushless electric (capable of 70 mphl), and a nitro version with Traxxas' TRX 2.5 engine. You can probably look at any manufacturer's website and find a stadium truck of some sort. They're a great starter truck and will go just about anywhere. Be sure to check out the Associated RC10T4.1 (below, left) with brushless electric power and adjustable suspension. The Duratrax Evader EXT stadium truck (below, right) is a great bargain, too, when you're doing your shopping.

The big name in crawlers is Axial Racing. Axial, known to RC fanatics worldwide for its range of replacement nitro engines, has been turning out competition-level crawlers for a white now. Kits and full competition models bred the need for a "ready to crawl" version, something you can take out of the box, Install batteries into, and start crawling with. Axial has done just that with the AX10 RTC (above, left). Featuring a crawler-spec electric motor, transmission, and gears, the AX10 RTC also has super-sticky crawler tires, front and rear lockers, and true beadlock wheels. Crawling was once an R/C sport where you had to cobble together your own rig from spare parts, but not anymore, thanks to the popularity of the sport. Besides Axial's line of crawlers, the folks at HPI have introduced the Crawler King (above, right) based on the Wheelie King electric truck with a completely new crawler specific chassis and suspension and the people at Losi (above) now have their Night Crawler (with LED lights to crawl at night). Both are capable crawlers with a slew of options, scale features, and more.©
