Mini trucks are monster fun
By User12611829-Oracle on Sep 20, 2005
So when the Mini-T came out, I did the noble thing: I bought one for my daughter. And she had a blast with it. But street racing wasn't all that fair against my Stampede (and don't even think about going up against a T-Maxx or comparable buggy/truggy). What to do ?
Well, another 1/18 scale truck, of course. And now there are lots of choices: ready-to-run, pro-team kits with lots of aluminum and titanium bling, 4 wheel drive, super articulated (the Tamiya rock crawlers).
I'm a huge XRAY fan, but didn't have the patience to wait for their M18T (based on the successful 1/18 scale touring car). Since this will eventually be a racer, the Team Associated RC18T was the best choice. Now that the M18T is available I suspect that I will be adding another stall in the garage.
While building the RC18T pro team kit, I gave in to temptation and added the RC18MT monster truck variant. All I have to say is that this little truck is a whole lot of fun. And we're talking T-Maxx kind of fun.
