It’s here! Kyosho Announces National Championship-Winning RT6 Stadium Truck

Sep 17, 2013 No Comments by

Short course truck racing hit the RC scene so quickly that it shook up many of the other electric off-road classes, with stadium truck taking the strongest hit. The future of the original “truck” division looked grim for a few seasons before manufacturers started releasing new products for the class, which always breathes new life into any segment. Rumors of Kyosho’s RB6-based stadium truck racer were confirmed earlier this year as we watched Jared Tebo campaign a prototype at several events, including his big win at the ROAR National Championship, and Kyosho has now released photos of the upcoming production model that should be here in time for the holidays. The design nods to the RB6 are apparent, with a narrow chassis platform and the ability to be run in either rear- or mid-motor configuration.

About the author

Associate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
