Radio-control bashers come in all on- and off-road styles — buggies, truggies, scalers, rock crawlers, rock racers, stadium trucks, short course trucks, and monster trucks. If a certain type of RC car or truck appeals to you, start there and narrow your preferences. Would you rather drive your RC basher in the dirt or on pavement? Do you enjoy realistic scale looks? You’ll find great bashing models in nearly every RC vehicle category.
RC monster trucks make very versatile bashers. Race, climb trails, run up and down the street — a radio-controlled basher monster truck can do it all!
Scalers and rock crawlers climb over and through rough terrain that stops other RC bashers. They love the challenge of getting past outrageous obstacles.
RC rock racers are rugged but nimble. They’re made for courses that combine high-speed flats with steep hills, rocks, jumps, and other challenges.
With their low ground clearance, RC stadium trucks handle easily on dirt tracks and pavement. They can jump well and take quite a beating, too.
RC short course trucks are right at home racing and bashing. Wide tires let them run on a variety of surfaces, and full-fendered bodies keep them right-side-up.
RC buggies are off-road vehicles with features of both cars and trucks. They’re designed to take abuse, making them perfect for backyard bashing.
RC truggies make great bashers, especially if you want an off-road truck with a little more racing speed than monster trucks provide.
RC on-road bashers are engineered for running on smooth paved surfaces, rather than leaping and plowing into the dirt.
