It’s no secret that short course trucks have pushed our hobby to a new level. Much of this has been accomplished by manufacturers reaching out to new markets. Traxxas can be seen at almost any sort of off-road racing event and almost all of the bigger manufacturers have sponsored a full size racing truck. HPI has made a good presence in the motocross scene.,Losi has a truck in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORS) and Team Associated has teamed up with Lucas Oil on a couple trucks in the LOORS circuit as well.
Below is a video of the Team Associated crew putting on a demo at the 2011 Sand Sports Expo in Orange County, CA. Ryan Cavalieri, Rick Howart, Richard Saxton and more were on hand to bash some SC10 short course trucks and show what our hobby is about to a new crowd of off-road race enthusiasts.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that multiple world champion Cavalieri gets beat by a 6-year old–twice.
