Axial Snow Wraith by Aaron Bailey [READER’S RIDE]

Now that we’re well into the winter months and much of the country has just received its first major snow storm, Aaron Bailey’s Snow Wraith seems a particularly appropriate machine to feature this week. We’ve admired Aaron’s Axial-based customs in past issues of RC Car Action, and this one is starts with a custom PigSnot chassis.

Axial SCX10 Custom Honcho by Adam Hoover [READERS RIDE]

Axial SCX10 Custom Honcho by Adam Hoover [READERS RIDE]

Adam’s truck has a certain gritty, home-brewed scale look to it that really appeals to us. It looks like the kind of real truck we would build in our garage at home. He custom-welded the eco-cage and rear section himself, and added a RC4WD Mojave cab which he custom-painted to give it a home-built beater […]
Axial SCX10 Salvage Truck by Micheal Matthews [READERS RIDE]

Axial SCX10 Salvage Truck by Micheal Matthews [READERS RIDE]

Micheal gets big points for  originality with his Axial SCX10-based salvage truck. He only shared a few details — the outstanding photos do most of the talking for him. He chose an Axial 55T motor for tons of torque down low, with Castle’s SV3 speed control ensuring precise throttle management. Micheal looked to Hitec for […]

Traxxas/Axial Hybrid Scout 80 by Scott Lempert [Reader’s Ride]

We could probably do an entire column just on Scott Lempert’s scale projects, so prolific is he with off-season building. One in particular that caught our eye was this ’63 International Scout 80—not just for the styrene body which Scott crafted himself, but for the unusual mix of components. The backbone is a set of […]

SCX10-based Croc Hunter Land Cruiser [Reader’s Ride]

Wesley Steinke’s truck started off as an Axial SCX10 Honcho, but with a donor body from a Crocodile Hunter toy truck, it’s now a beautifully detailed Toyota Land Cruiser 70 UTE complete with a reworked drivetrain to accommodate the body’s shorter wheelbase. The upper and lower links and MIP driveshafts were cut down, re-centered and […]

Custom SWB Vaterra Twin Hammers by Ronald Martin [Reader’s Ride]

Ronald Martin’s bug-bodied Twin Hammers is a perfect reminder of how modest beginnings can lead to great results. He tells us that this project all started with a donated spare parts chassis he inherited from a friend. He dug into his own stash of leftover parts to put the basic foundation together. He had some […]
