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 the trademark color of the Axial brand.  A few other details that stuck out right away, we noticed the windshield was scrapped and the Axial five-bucket light bar (from the G6) was added to the roll cage.  A front bumper was added as this wasn’t really something available on the AX10 format. The WB8 HD Wildboar™ Drives hafts have been given a small makeover and have been updated. They now feature a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength. A new center splined slider floats between each end and features added material which reduces flex and fatigue. The SCX10 itself chassis is the same as its predecessors but now with single coil over springs, this version is sold in the same RTR format with the Axial 2.4 GHz radio system, high-torque (151oz-in) steering servo and 27-turn motor and Waterproof AE-5 ESC which is 3cell LiPo capable. Axial states it will retail for $300. The part number is AX90044.
