The 1/10th Short Course RC Bodyshell is designed to accurately portray the shells of the American 1:1 vehicles that inspired this popular class of RC Bashing and Racing. They are usually split into two categories. True 'Short Course and 'Trophy Trucks. The former are 2 or 4WD 'Short Course' Trucks, and called that because they usually race on short courses, and do multiple laps per race on closed tracks, like football stadiums. These are set out with crowd pleasing jumps and obstacles that test both the drivers skills at the wheel, and their nerve in the air. The other types of body style that can be bought as a 1/10th and fitted onto RC Short Course Trucks are 'Trophy Trucks'. These are very similar looking to Short Course Trucks but often have the addition of extra lighting, a roll cage and spare tyres in the rear bed. They run over long distances, often point to point in the desert, on a completely open course with a driver and navigator. bodyshells for RC Short Course vary in their complexity and level of detail. Go lightweight and simple for a RC Short Course race shell, or more detailed and complex for a more realistic looking Trophy Truck. Most are sold clear and require cutting out, painting and detailing. Remember you must paint all Lexan Shells on the inside, with a compatible paint that physically attaches itself to the Lexan.
