1/8-Scale Buggies on Astro-Turf?

1/8-Scale Buggies on Astro-Turf?

Astro-turf may be the hot trend in 1/10-scale electric off-road racing, but how about using 1/8-scale buggies? That’s right, big, powerful 4WD buggies are turned loose on this outdoor track and battle it out on the grippy, high-traction surface. If you listen closely, you can also hear nitro engines fired up in the background, giving us a tease that they too take to the artificial turf. The reality is that there are places where dirt and natural terrain just won’t hold up to Mother Nature, and some improvising is needed.
