Axial 1/10 4WD RTR SCX10 Trail Honcho

Nov 11, 2011 No Comments by

This new RTR crawler from Axial is packed with features like Walker Evans Racing wheels and 1.9 Ripsaw tires, WB8 Wild Boar driveshafts, 27T electric motor, 2.4 GHz radio system, LED lights, 4-link rear suspension, heavy duty differential locker, and much, much more. Check out all the features in the press release below:

The latest SCX10™ is inspired by off-road vehicles that are basically part truck and part buggy, nicknamed “truggies”. The new Axial SCX10™ is the vehicle to have when it comes to having a realistic looking truggy. Scale features such as the steel c-channel ladder frame, plastic molded cage, and plastic front bumper with aluminum skid plates are included. If you’re looking for adventure, the SCX10™ Trail Honcho™ delivers!

TRAIL PROVEN PERFORMANCE

The SCX10™ was designed to resemble its full sized “scale/1:1″ counterparts, yet is still able to perform like the 2.2 AX10 Scorpion™. Unlike the AX10™ which is purely competition driven, the SCX10™ doesn’t compromise its look for pure performance although the SCX10™ is a more than capable rig, on or off the trail.

GO OVERLAND, DO EXPEDITION

The SCX10™ uses the same ultra durable transmission and axles as the AX10 Scorpion, but is built around a more realistic or “scale” frame. It also runs smaller, more realistic looking wheels and tires. These trucks are designed to have fun with especially if you have a few friends that have scale rigs. Getting a few guys together and going out for a scale trail run is one of the best things you can do if you’re an avid off-roading enthusiast.

NOTE: Prototype shown. Some imagery may differ from the actual product.

FEATURES:

AXLES – PROVEN DURABILITY

The axles have been designed with many features that are not available from other products on the market. Everything from the axle strength, pinion angle, caster, and ground clearance were taken into consideration when designing these axles. The result is a far superior axle that will stand up to some severe punishment. To ensure added longevity from the start a hi-tolerance sintered diff locker is included along with hardened axle shafts.

HEAVY DUTY DIFFERENTIAL LOCKER

Made from strong sintered metal. Sintered metal provides superior metallurgical characteristics and can be manufactured with very tight tolerances. Adds weight where it is needed in the axle. Simple one piece design. Reduces slop in drivetrain by eliminating cross pin.

WB8 WILD BOAR™ DRIVESHAFTS

The WB8 Wild Boar™ driveshafts are a constant velocity joint design [CVJ] which allows for efficient, friction free movement. Full metal-to-metal construction for the CVJ housing makes them durable.They’re also easy to assemble and maintain!

NOTE: driveshafts shown with optional AX30786 WB8 Driveshaft Retainer Ring (not included)

4-LINK REAR SUSPENSION

The suspension geometry utilizes a 4-Link design for the rear which is optimized to reduce axle steer and torque twist. It also helps with steep off-camber climbs by having the proper amount of anti-squat and roll characteristics. The 4-Link system also aids against suspension wrap-up in high power applications.

27T MOTOR

The Axial 27T motor supplies plenty of power for high speed trail runs or powering over obstacles.

SPUR GEAR COVER

The protective transmission spur gear cover helps keep dirt and debris out of your pinion and spur gear for a quiet and efficient drivetrain.

TRANSMISSION

The transmission was designed to place the weight of the motor as low as possible to maintain a low CG (Center of Gravity). The ultra compact transmission doesn’t compromise performance because it also allows for 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 which allow for super high speed or to competition level crawling speed.

SLIPPER CLUTCH

The slipper clutch allows the motor to work more efficiently and greatly enhances the durability of the drivetrain allowing the transmission to slip in hard binds.

1.9 WALKER EVANS RACING WHEELS

Officially licensed Walker Evans Racing wheels are molded from a blend of high quality nylon materials for strength and durability with a solid 12mm hex mount and dressed in black and chrome for eye catching looks.

1.9 RIPSAW™ TIRES R35 COMPOUND

The 1.9 Ripsaw™ tires are mounted and glued to Walker Evans Racing wheels right from the factory. The Ripsaw™ tire offers a realistic and aggressive tread design for the ultimate scale appearance and they’re molded in our high performance R35 compound for maximum grip.

ADJUSTABLE COILOVER SHOCKS

The shocks on the SCX10™ feature dual rate springs which help deliver maximum off-road performance. They are oil filled shocks which allow you to tune the dampening rate. Shock hoops on the SCX10™ frame allow for multiple shock positions for tunable performance. There’s also coilover shock reservoirs for realistic scale looks.

LED LIGHTS INCLUDED

The Simple LED Controller connects to the receiver and is turned on/off with the main power switch of the truck. There are two white LED’s for the front and two red LED’s for the rear. Additional light buckets are also included for custom looks.

2.4GHz RADIO FOR WORRY-FREE DRIVING

The AX-3 2.4GHz transmitter is a two channel, pistol grip radio with servo reversing switches for steering and throttle, trim dials for fine tuning steering and throttle centers. The battery indicator light also lets you know when your transmitter batteries run low.

3-CHANNEL 2.4GHz RECEIVER

The AR-3 2.4 GHz receiver uses no crystals so you’ll experience worry free driving with no frequency conflicts. This lightweight, compact, and bind button equipped receiver with LED indicator makes setup easy!

AE-2 ESC WITH DRAG BRAKE

The Axial AE-2 ESC was developed in partnership with Castle Creations and features LiPo cutoff, drag brake for tough crawling situations, a Tamiya style plug connector and is programmable via Castle Link™ (Castle Link™ not included).

PROTECTIVE ELECTRONICS BOX
