I won’t spend too much time restating obvious history, but Axial’s AX10 redefined rock crawling in the sense that meant you could actually buy a crawler. Before the AX10, the vast majority of crawlers used axles from one company, a transmission from another and some sort of homespun chassis. SCX10 has been just as important–if not even more so–to the scale side of crawling. As influential as the AX10 and SCX10 are, they are not without their weaknesses. One that comes to mind is the mount for the upper link of the 3-link suspension arrangement. Not only is it fairly easy for this piece to break, but the link can also pop free and most people prefer a 4-link setup over the 3-link. Gear Head RC has a new machined 6061-T6 aluminum piece that replaces the stock truss. The mount is clearly stronger and is designed for a 4-link setup. Gear Head RC includes hardware to mount the links to the truss, but new links will be needed to switch from a 3- to a 4-link suspension. Gear Head RC products are available exclusively at Rpp Hobby.
