Short course trucks are hot, but will we be seeing trophy trucks soon?

Short course trucks are hot, but will we be seeing trophy trucks soon?

A lot of us love short course trucks because they look just like the real thing. I like short course trucks but there’s nothing like a tricked out trophy truck. They look so much better with all the lights on them and the spare tires in the bed. I think that it’s time for a change and we need to take two of the most popular categories in RC and marry them together; short course and scale. HPI has kicked started the trophy truck category off with their mini trophy truck. I would love to see a factory made trophy truck with lots of LEDs, a solid axle (don’t care if it handles better or worse), a scale roll cage, spare tires and removable body panels. That’s just scratching the surface. What would you guys like to see? Is a scale trophy truck on your wish list?

  1. I too want a true to scale trophy truck. Don’t over power it please!

  2. HPI also tried the trophy truck thing with the Baja 5T and everybody cried it wasn’t an SC. What we got is the ugly (IMO) 5SC. SC trucks are ugly. Trophy trucks look great. I’ll take the 5T, or any trophy truck over a 5SC or any SC truck any day.

  3. I would love to have a true to scale trophy truck in my hobby garage.

  4. He who dies with the most toys, still dies

  5. What about a NASCAR truck series…think Traxxas? I do like the Trophy truck though.
