NEXT BIG THING: 1/8 scale Trail Trucks : BACKYARD TRAIL PARK – 4×4 Cragsman Crew | RC ADVENTURES
Today we get to see the results of the three trail trucks my friends unboxed the other day in this video ( ). They were hard at work all week painting and getting these trucks ready so we could trail today! Who knew that last night it would snow 15cm, and BOY ARE WE HAPPY WE HAVE 1/8 scale Trail Trucks!!
This course is nearly impossible for 1/10th scale trail trucks in the winter driving conditions like we have today – but these 1/8 scale trucks are chewing their way through the terrain. The Slippery wood is still an issue, with the rubber tires quickly freezing in the cold snow. The heavier weight of the vehicles add traction, but also add to the difficulty in some areas. They slide sideways easier, and add a level of realism I really enjoy. For those who were smart enough to install a winch – it aided in the traction in some areas. For others, wheel speed was the key. All in all, these trucks performed very well, and the four of us are rusty as HECK in this snow! We have not winter driven in almost 7 months.. but we are glad to be challenged again!
This is the first time these guys have driven this model.. and it is VERY DIFFERENT than driving a 1/10 scale truck. Proportions, weight, suspension movement – its ALL DIFFERENT.
I believe 1/8 scale crawling is the next "BIG THING" in the world of RC trail trucking. It's going to open a whole new sector for aftermarket parts, and competitions, world wide. Mark my words.
So many viewers always ask me where I get the models I show in my films, so I have learned to leave a link in the video description to help those who can discover it. I do not make any kind of "kickback" for mentioning the website, but I think it helps viewers who want to know more.
