Default Your Top 5 RCs

What is in your top 5 fun RCs that get used most often?

#1 MST MTX-1 (front yard bashing)
#2 Team Associated SR10 Stock Car (2wd ripper great for groups)
#3 1/24 Mini Trek (Indoor ripper) like a mini Traxxas Sledge
#4 Carisma Subaru Brat SCA-1E (surprises me every time..once the few flaws are fixed)
#5 Tamiya Clod Buster Gray Edition (Fun Build and Fun in a small backyard)

Great question!

Going with my top 5 of all time since I don't get out much anymore (in no particular order) and the number is how many are currently in the shop. If I really like something, I tend to hoard them and then build different variations -see the Telluride, C-Maxx threads for my most recent cash drain. It's a problem.

Traxxas TRX4 - Still the best trail truck on the market imo, and my go-to for trail running. (4)
Axial SCX10 (OG) - Brought crawling and scale trucks to the masses... I drove the wheels off them, and still do on occasion. (3 rigs on OG axles still)
Tamiya CR01 - One my my favorite trucks to modify, such an odd but interesting platform. (4)
Traxxas Slash - took bashing to a whole new level, and can be modded 9 ways to Sunday. (1....sold all my stuff a while ago to Sczerba I think, but of course picked up a new one recently.)
Traxxas T-Maxx - by far my favorite and most used nitro back in the nitro days, and I'm sure anyone who was around back then would agree. The Revo was way cool when it came out but the Maxx was and is still an amazing platform (3)

Kind of interesting - Don't consider myself a TRX fanboy by any means, but looking at my list, but hell, maybe I am! They do hit the market with an impact, that's for sure.

Lots of honorable mentions...Tamiya CC01, Clod, and the lowly Futaba FX10 - the one that started it all for me.

By far my number 1 goto is my vs410 pro
2. Scx6.
3. Bomber
4 . Cross rc hc6 (military 5 ton)
5. Clod buster re-release that lives its life as a easy trail runner with a bunch of upgrades because it has a nostalgic stuff for me. Bought my first one in 1989 and ruined it.

Class 2 chingchong chassis from Amazon with vanquish origin front axle and ar45 rear. Stupid capable rig.

Class 3 titanium rc speedy on treal Capra with queer steer.

Dlux asylum on sthupershafty Capra axles. Stupid capable and all sorts of fun.

Dlux pro, all the capability and performance.

Just built a 2 wheel drive slash that's all aftermarket but the trans gears. Should be a riot to bash about with my family that just got slashes, stampedes and bandits for Christmas.

My number 1 would be the gspeed 6x6 if I still owned it.. that thing was ridiculous.
But Iíll go like this
#1 RC speedy c2 looks killer, isnít the best performer but it looks good doing everything.
#2 BOC flow I got from our own distinctive pd. Thanks to twade984 for putting in the work on the steering servo mount. That truck is my go to.
#3 vs4-10 pro just a great truck all the way around.
#4 I think Iím going to go with my element ecto, havenít had it very long, super fun truck though.
#5 F9 3 gear Capra, super fun trail rig and head turner.

Honorable mention goes to the scx6, theyíre a blast but I really want the honcho.. or to ditch the heavy jlu body for the new cliffhanger.
The little bit I drove my tf2 I thoroughly enjoyed it but I want a more capable leafer
And non crawler goes to my hpi Baja 5t, the absolute most fun I ever had racing

my top 5 are what ever isent broken on any given day and what ever i just finished building seems.to be the one that gets the most attention untill i build a new one
the redcat gen8 haz been on the running list more than any of the others so i guess it gets the most run time its not the best performer but keeps up with most of my other rigs

Overall favorites for one reason or another and I guess in order more to less:

#1 - TRX4 324 mm ( Top all around crawler for me. I like the longer wheelbase better than shorter)
#2 - TRX4 312 mm
#3 - Capra
#4 - Toss up between 4wd Slash and 2wd Stamped. Speed = Slash/ Jumps = Stampede
#5 - SCX24

Maybe relevant... Part of what makes these my favorites is due to memories of great times running, fabricating parts, successful mods, etc... not simply the rig itself.

I'll add mine:

Gspeed V3 G-shot SS Capra axles 4WS
GSpeed V3 AR45p
4-10 Phoenix
4-10 Ultra
SCX6

I've got 4.19 Enduro with a Boom Racing LC70 hardbody that's fun because it doesn't have the clearance under the diffs, plus the extra weight of the hardbody.
