What Scale should I get?

Many of you have contacted use asking how does the scale relate to size and how the differnt scales compare.

Well the easiest way is to see the image below. These are 3 of our HSP Buggies in 1/8th, 1/10th and 1/16th scale sizes compared against the size of my mornig mug of coffee. 😉

On the LEFT is the HSP 1/8th Scale Nitro Camper

In the CENTRE is the 1/10th Scale XSTR Pro

On the RIGHT is the 1/16th Scale Troian Pro

So 1/8th scale is bigger than 1/10th scale. 1/10th is bigger the 1/16th etc.

The scale is simply the fraction or ratio to a full size vehicle, so 1/2th Scale would be half the size of a real life full size Buggy (If one existed)

Put another way, a 1/10th scale model car would be ‘one tenth’ the length of a full size car.

Hope this helps some of you newbie’s out there.
