Default What is your favorite scale for R/C?

I couldn't think of where to put this poll. I don't even know if there is another on like it. I just want to know because there doesn't seem to be much for 1/10 scale cars compared to 1/8 scale. My first non-1/10 scale car is the Sav X I'm saving up for. If I missed your favorite scale size, just put it in your comments.

You forgot 1/24th....

I own at least 1 vehicle in every scale you listed and honestly I'm really starting to enjoy my 18th scales (RC18 and M18) and my Mini-Z's the most. I haven't even touch my 5th scale in ages since I need to have a huge area to use it...

for me its a break up between 1/8 and 1/18. i love the size of my mgt with the speed and power, but i can use my rc18t anywhere, anytime.... so i cant really decide.

i like my 1/8 buggy, but it requires a big amount of space to run it. my mini-t can be run in the house at rainy days, but its too fast for anywhere in the house

1/10th. You cant beat the fun factor of racing a 10th scale GT.

i have a 1/10 gas stadium truck, a mini t, and a warhead. i couldnt pick just 1 becuase i like them all for different reasons. i run the mini in my basement all winter, my rustler for speed, and the warhead because it will run over almost anything

I want a Savage X because it would be my first car that isn't 1/10 scale.

I thin the revo is closer to 1/9th or 1/8th and not 1/10th? Just my opinion, but 1/10th is the best

I think any size RC is cool, especially 1:1, but my favorite is 1:8. Just because I see it as a happy mid-point.
