At what Scale is a vehicle considered Large Scale?
 
I have heard some interesting rumors floating around and I am curious what people consider to be a large scale rig? Where do we start 1/7? 1/6?

I consider everything from 1/6th scale large scale, the seventh scales are such a rarity that they never even crossed my mind untill Traxxas released that iPhone thingy car.

I think Ofna released a 7th scale nitro buggy at one time as well.

I agree on the 1/6th scale or larger.

I agree with Rob & Hemi. 1/6 scale or bigger.

I will concur with the above thinking in that 1/6 is a starting point for large scale....or pretty much if it has a weed wacker mill your good..........

I would call it a sad day for 5th scale....I would be ashamed to show myself if I had to try to promote something HPI like that...but thats just me....I am sure some sucker will buy one....

Its still 1/5 scale for sure, the size of the powerplant has nothing to do with scale.

I am reserving my opinion on this until I see some performance numbers for that motor. I know there are some nitro motors that can make over 3hp, and, as is stated by HPI, the truck will be much lighter, so theoretically it wont need as much power, so Ill hold off on passing judgment until I have driven one. I will be honest, I do not have my hopes up for this..... but you never know.
