There are alot of new electrical RC things these days Lithium polymer batteries brushless motors, new speed controls etc. They are all getting very effecient.
Add that those rock crawlers tend to be geared really low and the new batteries are so powerful. But I'm not the sort who wants to drive a slow RC truck up a retainment wall. I'd rather have a buggy going 30 flying over bumps and such.
