that is the scale size ...

1/8 scale is bigger than a 1/10 scale

1/6 is bigger than 1/8

1/1 is a real car you drive ...

can't say 1 is better than the other ... personal preference ...

They refer to the scale of the vehicle.

For example: 1/10 means the vehicle is 10% the size of the real thing. 1/4 means 25% the size.

Where can I find the 1/1 T-Maxx?? Scale size has never made much sense to me when (in most cases) there is no 1/1 to compare it to. I did see that 1/1 Savage pic! That thing was bad *****.

they could never finish it ... kept breaking !!! HAHAHAHAHAHA

actually i believe it has to do with length and width of the car / truck ... that determines its scale .... along with weight and size of engine ...

They are reference scale terms, not exacting scale terms.

We have some info on our club site that may interest you. I build and work with "scale" blue prints and models all the time in my industry making fullsize versions of them.
