Rev Up Your Hobby with the Seismic SCT from Revolution RC

Low on price, high on fun. Those are two attributes I look for in any new R/C vehicle. Small-scale cars and trucks seem to fit these criteria quite well, and now there’s one more model to add to the growing list of low-cost, full-featured machines.

Horizon Hobby’s budget-friendly brand, Revolution RC, has launched a new 1/18-scale short course truck, the Seismic SCT. This is a four-wheel drive truck featuring a brushed motor, NiMh battery, waterproof/water resistant electronics, and 2.4GHz radio system.

In the looks department, the Seismic SCT fits the mold when it comes to radio-controlled short course trucks. The body design looks fun and graphics are bold and eye-catching. Two body colors are available to choose from (red/black or yellow/black).

Power for this vehicle comes from a 380-size brushed motor, and an included 900mah NiMh battery. This should provide plenty of “get up and go” for this smaller-scale model, making it a great beginner truck.
