Axial AX10 Scorpion

Previously the only way to build a competition capable rock crawler was to buy bits and pieces of several different kits here and there, sometimes taking several months just to get the right parts together before you could even start the build.

Now you can get everything you need in one box and, in a matter of a few hours of build time, be able to hit the rocks with the Axial AX10 Scorpion 1/10 Rock Crawler Kit.

Axial has designed a completely new kit from the ground up.  Each detail has been well thought out and provides you with a solid rock crawler base to work with.

  

Axles

The axles have been designed with many features that are not available from other choices on the market.  Everything from the axle strength, pinion angle, caster, and ground clearance were taken into consideration, the result is a stronger better axle that will outperform the rest.  An aluminum diff locker is included along with hardened drive shafts and axles.

Chassis

The AX10 Scorpion chassis is lightweight and stiff.  Twin 2.0mm aluminum side plates are tied together with aluminum posts and a molded nylon transmission/skid plate.  The chassis was made small and compact to cut as much weight as possible.  A simple battery/radio tray makes installation of your electronics quick and easy.  Wheel base is adjustable from 304mm ~ 320mm.

Transmission

The AX10 Scorpion transmission was designed to place the weight of the motor as low as possible while still allowing a wide range of gearing choices.  The overall ratio can be adjusted from 15:1 all the way up to 74:1 using different pinion/spur gear choices.  The transmission is locked with no differential action and features hard anodized aluminum out-drive shafts.

Shocks, Links and Driveshaft

Super long shocks offer a wider range of articulation as well as an optional range of spring choices so you can tune your crawler to work on any terrain.  All suspension links are made from lightweight and strong aluminum.  The driveshaft is made from a strong composite material and features hardened metal yokes.

Wheels, Tires and Body

No crawler would be complete without the essentials.  The AX10 Scorpion comes outfitted with the popular 2.2 Rockster beadlocks sporting green rock rings and Rock Lizard tires.  And to complete the AX10 Scorpion is the popular B-17 Betty body in .040” thick polycarbonate is included.
