A 1/28-scale replica of Carl Renezeder’s Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Machine
Small-scale is the new big thing in the world of R/C. Team Associated has embraced small-scale with their release of three 1/18-scale vehicles earlier this year and they’re adding one more micro machine to their lineup.
The SC29 is a 1/28-scale, ready-to-run (RTR) short course truck that features a replica body styled after Carl Renezeder’s Lucas Oil Off Road Racing series truck. Carl and Team Associated have enjoyed a long and rich history, producing ⅛ and 1/10-scale vehicles featuring his race truck’s paint scheme.
This tiny truck is the first 1/28-scale vehicle from Team Associated and features a chassis design that’s similar to what’s found on HPI’s Q32 series of micro R/C vehicles. With no front suspension and a dual rear shock package, this vehicle looks like it’s geared for indoor use. At a length just shy of seven inches and a width that’s just less than four inches, this is another radio-controlled machine that would be perfect for basement driving during the long winter months.
