Many R/C enthusiasts believe that Traxxas was the first company to introduce short course trucks.
In 1990, Team Associated was selling a Circa short course truck body (PN: ASC6174) for their legendary RC10 buggy. This conversion kit was 22 years ago, it is amazing! At this time, 2wd buggies were the reigning electric off-road class and electric stadium trucks appeared about a year later.
So, now when your friends will tell you that Traxxas has invented the short course truck, you now know what to answer them!
