The SC18 features a newly designed chassis with a fully enclosed, 2-belt drive train system that is capable of handling the extreme amount of power that today’s brushless motors and LiPo batteries can dish out. Along with durability, the drive train is sealed to help keep rocks and dirt away from the gears and pulleys.

The SC18 comes fully assembled with a painted and decaled short course race-truck body, AMT™ Forged style wheels, aggressive tread multi-terrain tires, all designed to look just like the full-size race trucks that run in short-course off-road series around the country, and a totally new XP3-SS 2.4 GHz 3-Channel radio system.

The world of high-performance 1:18 scale electric R/C has never before seen this level of scale accuracy! At first glance it’s easy to see that the SC18 is another champion by design!

    Have two on order and can’t wait to get them. Looks like early March will be arrival date. Just wanted to pass this on. In the magazine articles it states truck will have battery and charger included. I’ve seen several sites taking pre-orders for truck at $170-$175, but that is without battery and charger.My local hobby shop contacted his supplier and Associated, and I’m getting my trucks for $199 each, charger and battery included. Don’t think you’ll find a battery and charger for less than $30, so consider this if you are going to pre-order one. Glad I did. I’m getting each truck RTR with charger, battery, and extra battery for $230 from my shop and no shipping to pay.
