Loose Surface Driving-
Lots of people drive their bashers on pavement, but plenty also drive them on dirt, thus the need for our “loose surface driving” category. We gathered up 4 of our Bash Crew members and told them to keep driving the trucks back-to-back until they felt satisfied they could rank the them from best to worst.
1. ECX Ruckus
2. ARRMA Granite
3. Traxxas Stampede
By driver they ranked this way.
Brian- 1. Ruckus 2. Granite 3. Stampede
Craig- 1. Granite 2. Ruckus 3. Stampede
Tim- 1. Ruckus 2. Stampede 3. Granite
Cubby- 1. Ruckus 2. Granite 3. Stampede
Ruckus- Big tires and larger overall size put the Ruckus up front on loose surfaces. The Ruckus was a blast to drive and was preferred by three out of our four drivers.
Granite- The Granite landed one first place vote and finished second overall on the loose stuff. Stable, good handling truck on slick surfaces.
Stampede- The Stampede was fun to drive, but it’s smaller tires and shorter wheelbase made it a handful to drive compared to the other trucks.
Enough of the ground work, lets get some air! Onto the Jumping!
