Short Course Trucks

2wd Short Course trucks are the hottest thing on race tracks world-wide, and we’re specialising in SC racing at Launceston R/C.  Check out the Traxxas Slash, Team Associated SC10, HPI Blitz, Kyosho Ultima SC, Losi XXX-SC or Venom Gambler to get started. Any of these will make good race trucks at Launceston R/C.
