Axial Dodge Power Wagon SCX10

Axial Dodge Power Wagon SCX10

It appears Axial is listening to its customers (and the scale rock crawling community as a whole) and will be dishing out, what we’re guessing, will an SCX10 based on a full-size pick-up, the Dodge Power Wagon. It also appears you be able to modify the body by removing the bed and replacing it with […]

Vaterra 1986 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Ascender Scale Truck

Vaterra 1986 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Ascender Scale Truck

As soon as Horizon Hobby launched the all-new Vaterra brand (only about a year and a half ago) and the rock crawling community got a look at its Twin Hammers release, there has been a clamor for a traditional scale truck. As overall well received as the Twin Hammers has been, “Yeah, that’s cool, but […]

STRC Carbon-Steel Universal Center Driveshaft Kit for Axial Wraith Review

STRC Carbon-Steel Universal Center Driveshaft Kit for Axial Wraith Review

If you have upgraded the motor in your Axial Wraith you may have come across the “pretzel effect.” You know; it’s what your stock drive shafts look like after too much power and tough terrain come together. It’s not a pretty sight. If this has happened to you, it’s time to upgrade those driveshafts to […]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Kit Version

Vaterra Twin Hammers Kit Version

You read that right; it’s a kit. Originally, we reported this as a GenRight edition. That isn’t 100% accurate. The kit (the original Twin Hammers was only available as a RTR) includes clear body pieces. But, it also includes GenRight decals, so you can create your own GenRight edition, if you like. About GenRight, if […]

SCX10 TR Links Set -for 12″ (305 mm) Wheelbase

SCX10 TR Links Set -for 12″ (305 mm) Wheelbase

Axial uses predominantly plastic links on its RTR rock crawlers because doing so reduces costs and for increased durability via flexibility. Aluminum links offer more precise operation (no flex in the steering, for example) and are stronger in the long run. Axial’s SCX10 aluminum link set is compatible with the RTR SCX10 Deadbolt and Jeep […]

Axial Yeti RTR Rock Racer

Axial Yeti RTR Rock Racer

This is a big deal. It’s not a whole new invention, but it’s still a major release. The Yeti is what a few people have been fabricating on their own and what a whole lot more people have wanted. The Yeti is Axial’s production version of what most refer to as the “Wrexo”—as in Wraith […]

As you probably already know, the stock Axial tube fenders are molded plastic. RC4WD’s are made out of CNC-machined aluminum and […]

Axial Racing SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Falken G6 Edition RTR

Axial Racing SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Falken G6 Edition RTR

Late last year Axial unveiled the G6 Edition of the SCX10. The 2-door Jeep Wrangler has a cool look and tie in with the R.E.C.O.N. G6 series. That version was a kit and now Axial has a RTR, but they gave it the Falken tire treatment and a flashy paint scheme to go with it. […]

STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Diff Covers Version 2 for Axial AR60 Axles Review

STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Diff Covers Version 2 for Axial AR60 Axles Review

Axial’s AR60 axles are becoming increasingly popular as they are found as factory equipment on Axial’s Wraith and AX10 Deadbolt models and also hundreds of custom rigs out there. They are great axles, picked usually because they’re wide, but axles tend to get lost in the project. This also happens in the full-size world and is […]

RC4WD Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tire

RC4WD Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tire

RC4WD keeps rolling out the new tires. This release should raise an eyebrow. First, the Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tires are, as the name states, made for 1.7 wheels. Second, they have a modified tread. You see, the Bogger was designed, right from the get go, to be easily modified for high performance […]

Axial SCX10 Deadbolt RTR

Axial SCX10 Deadbolt RTR

This one is kind of a no brainer in our book. The Deadbolt body was an instant hit on the AX10, so we’re not too surprised to see that it has taken a leap from the AX10 chassis and landed on the SCX10 chassis. The body is now green, which we find quite fitting because green is […]

Pit Bull Growler AT/Extra 1.55 Tire Review

What you’re looking at are Pit Bull Tires’ 1.55 Growlers. That’s right, folks, 1.55 Pits! If you love the 1.9s and the 2.2s, well, add these to the list. With the Growler AT/Extra, Pit Bull has added another soft compound, sticky tire to its lineup of tires based directly on the full-size tires they make.   […]

STRC Off-Axle Servo Mount Kit and Panhard for Axial Wraith Review

STRC Off-Axle Servo Mount Kit and Panhard for Axial Wraith Review

There’s all sorts of crazy creativeness going on scalers. I love it. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone drops something new and cool on their rig. Even with all of the proverbial out-of-the-box thinking, one of the fundamental go-to scale modifications we keep seeing–for good reason–on numerous built-up scalers is a CMS, […]

RC4WD Mud Slinger 2 XL 1.9 Tires

RC4WD Mud Slinger 2 XL 1.9 Tires

If you like RC4WD’s Mud Slinger tires, but don’t think they’re tall enough at only 3.66 in., you are in luck. The new Mud Slinger 2 XL 1.9″ scale tires are 4.21 in. (107 mm) tall and 1.5 in. (38.1 mm). The tires feature inner ribbing for sidewall support. RC4WD describes its X2 SS Compound as […]
