We would like to congratulate ARRMA RC and Hobbico on their Nero Monster Truck winning our coveted Bash Vehicle of the Year for 2016! There were a ton of great vehicles released in 2016, but the ARRMA Nero edged out the competition with its durability, intense power system, and Smart Diff technology. The Nero proved it can take a serious bashing, and then offer up the ability to lock or unlock the diffs to make it the perfectly tuned vehicle for whatever type of driving you like…. that’s just awesome! Want to race through some mud? No problem. Want to sky some backflips? All day long! Wheelies? Aww yea! Want to run on pavement or another high traction surface? Sure! This truck claimed something different and it delivered. The Nero blew us away on many levels.

As always, this wasn’t an easy decision. There were a lot of good vehicles released this year, and if for some reason the ARRMA isn’t your thing, here are some of the contenders.
Congratulations again to Hobbico and ARRMA RC! The Nero was a true ground breaker and our 2016 Bash Vehicle Of The Year!
