Stadium Trucks are primarily designed for jumps and off-road racing, while Short Course Trucks are made to be extremely durable (to absorb contact from other vehicles better than traditional RC trucks) for frequent bashing. Their design concepts are totally different. Simply put, a short course truck is for jumping AND bashing. To protect against impact from bashing, there has to be protection around the car body. The tradeoff is weight. To sustain the weight, the power system must be able to deliver enough torque. This training book has been developed from the ground up for beginners who know little about the latest electric power RC technology. As part of our RC Technology Self-Paced Training Series, this book gives an introduction to the BRUSHLESS TRUCK architecture. The primary goal of this book is to explain the various brushless RC technical concepts in very simple language. We believe that this book and its support materials have everything you need for an informative, interesting, challenging and entertaining RC educational experience.
