We were fortunate to nab shots of Axial’s new Scorpion RTR rock crawler. The truck looks pretty sick and it has a host of news parts. Here is a list of new features for the RTR. -Gearing changed to use a 20-tooth pinion (14-tooth pinion was included in the kit, not included with the RTR) for increased top speeds – Truck includes a 27-turn stock motor for good speed and plenty of torque. – Molded plastic links used throughout. – Molded plastic straight axles replace knuckle-style design, which used turnbuckles. This is a much sleeker design to prevent from getting hung on rocks. – Adjustable slipper clutch included. – Front differential and rear locker -Completely built and ready to run. – All Axial hop-ups will bolt right onto the RTR. – Should be available late February or early March.

I’ve competed at many large events (done pretty well too) and I have found myself returning to the recently reinvigorated 1/10-scale electric off-road racing scene.
