High Desert Hilux: Paul Yoo’s Axial SCX10

Apr 08, 2014 1 Comment by

June issue of RCCA  featured this amazing shot in our Readers’ Rides section. Paul Yoo of Buena Park, CA sent us a handful of shots of this amazing Hilux scale build that was inspired by all the rides he saw at RCX last year. Beneath the Tamiya Toyota Hilux body sits an Axial SCX10 that’s been upgraded with Axial aluminum links, Gmade wheels and tires and an RC4WD winch. He finished it off with Tough Armor bumpers, LED lighting, Pro-Line scale accessories and an incredible paintjob complete with rust, scratches and dents to make this ride look super realistic.

If you’d like to submit pics to Readers’ Rides, just email your JPEGs to readersrides@airage.com. Don’t down-size the photos, we need ‘em full-res for print.

About the author

Associate Editor I can say that I’ve never done ANYTHING as long as I’ve been into RC. I got my first car when I was 11 and never looked back. Since then I’ve owned hundreds of cars and trucks and raced everything from Off-Road to Boats but I’m an Oval racer at heart. Whether I’m down siding a jump or going fast and turning left, it’s all on and my foot is to the floor! I love seeing new people discover our hobby and helping anyone I can enjoy it more. When I’m not racing or writing, I like to restore vintage RC cars and organize the Vintage Offroad Nationals. I’m also a dad and enjoy teaching my son how to drive and watching him get into this hobby on his own.
