Wish you could build Axial’s RR10 Bomber yourself? The new kit version lets you do just that, and select the gear to make it run. All the RTR Bomber’s features returns, plus a few upgrades for the kit model. Standard features include an all metal gear transmission, 4-link front and rear suspension with solid axles, tubular chassis, front mounted battery and 2.2 inch tires. In-the-box upgrades include King shocks, rear sway bar, aluminum steering links, heavy duty bevel gears and aluminum lower link plates. Scroll down below and get more information from the official Axial press release and see video of it in action below.
The RR10 Bomber build-it-yourself kit is loaded with features allowing you to customize it and add your own electronics for the ultimate rock racer! Building on the current, successful ready-to-run model, this kit version includes a wide variety of desirable option parts that deliver next level performance and durability. Hard anodized aluminum suspension links, hard anodized aluminum steering links, long travel rear sway bar, hardened steel universal axles allowing up to 50 degrees of steering, aluminum lower link plates, and King adjustable machined aluminum shocks, all riding on sticky BFGoodrich® Baja T/A® KR2 tires wrapped around 2.2 Walker Evans Racing beadlock wheels.
HARD ANODIZED MACHINED ALUMINUM THREADED LINKS:
The upper and lower suspension links as well as the steering tie rod and drag link are machined from aluminum to reduce flex and provide precise control over the roughest terrain. The tubes are threaded at both ends for easy assembly and they use larger and stronger M4 hardware.
HARD ANODIZED MACHINED ALUMINUM STEERING LINKS:
Our machined aluminum steering links give you more precise steering feel and response to help keep your rig pointed in the right direction. They’re hard anodized and use larger and stronger M4 hardware for durability.
LONG TRAVEL REAR SWAY BAR:
The pursuit of horsepower and the ability to put the power to the ground is one of the main aspects of offroad racing. This unique torsion bar design with long pivot arms used in conjunction with the long travel suspension is designed to help control the torque twist associated with massive power. This system also helps reduce body roll and adds stability at high speeds.
Our universal joint axles increase steering angle to 50 degrees, that’s 60% over the stock dogbone/drive cup setup. Our universals provide smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain. The universal is oversized; a design you’d see on 1/8 scale vehicles and it’s made of hardened steel so it’s capable of handling extreme power.
• AR60 OCP universal axle set
• Up to 50 degrees of steering
• Smooth action for an efficient drivetrain
• Oversized design for durability
• Hardened steel construction
HEAVY DUTY BEVEL GEAR SET – 38T/13T (FRONT AND REAR):
The included heavy duty bevel gear sets offer you improved gear mesh reducing slop in the drive train. In addition, they help add weight down low which helps lower the center of gravity and on the rocks where you want it. Made from high grade steel and hardened for increased strength.
KING ADJUSTABLE MACHINED ALUMINUM SHOCKS:
The included aluminum King Shocks feature precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies, machined aluminum caps and aluminum preload spacers for precision shock adjustments. The rear shocks are mounted on the links rather than at the axle, allowing for more suspension travel which is better for high speed handling.
ALUMINUM LOWER LINK PLATES:
Includes hard anodized 2mm aluminum lower link plates for added durability and stiffness of the rear 4 link suspension.
2.2 WALKER EVANS RACING BEADLOCK WHEELS:
Officially licensed Walker Evans Racing beadlock wheels dressed in an aggressive all black style and they work with most 2.2 tires. Our IFD™ (Interchangeable Face Design) wheel system makes it easy to dress it up with a new look. The wheel design allows you to vary the amount of air passing through the breather holes. You can select between having one, two or three open holes (two, four or six total) by rotating the inner (beadlock) ring. The position is locked with reassembly.
• Three piece beadlock design
• Utilizes new 2x11mm pins for added strength
• Updated plastic hub adapter to eliminate slop and capture the new 2x11mm pin
• Adjustable breather holes for fine tuning tire performance
• Compatible with most 2.2 tires
• Easy six screw disassembly
BFGOODRICH® BAJA T/A® KR2 TIRES – R35 COMPOUND:
In the full-size world of off-road racing, BFGoodrich® tires have proven to be the ‘go-to’ tire for numerous racing victories, including Randy Slawson piloting them to victory at the 2013 and 2015 King of the Hammers. Axial’s version of this tire captures the same aggressive look and provides remarkable performance on a wide variety of surfaces. This is the perfect tire for this style of vehicle due to its high level of performance and diversity.
The AR60 OCP-Axle™ is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. The combination of our axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle.
• Off-center pumpkin design
• Axle tubes are reinforced with a boxed-in axle truss
• High strength composite material
• Updated steering knuckles for dual shear, also eliminates secondary bolt on plate
• Updated differential cover and servo mount for a new look
WB8 HD WILDBOAR™ DRIVESHAFTS, FRONT AND REAR:
The WB8 HD driveshafts feature an updated design with a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength. A center splined slider floats between each end and features added material which reduces flex and fatigue.
• 3-piece driveshaft with strengthened slider-floater tube.
• Increased surface at the connection between the ball joints and output shaft tubes.
• 2x11mm cross pin adds 25% more surface area providing more strength for the ball joint.
• Captured cross pin design eliminates older set screw design for more durability and easy maintenance.
MULTIPLE SHOCK/LINK POINTS AND DUAL SHEAR SHOCK MOUNTS:
We’ve included a variety of shock mounting points for running dual shock setups and for additional suspension tuning options. On the skid plate you’ll find two front upper link mount positions and three rear upper link mount positions. All shock-mounting locations are dual shear with optional secondary shock mounts allowing for dual shock setups.
REALISTIC SCALE DETAILS:
Realistic scale details include molded driver figures, three pairs of helmets, molded shock reservoirs, a fuel cell, Bomber Fabrication body panels, two full color decal sheets with enough graphics for two completely unique looks, and a fully licensed scale tube chassis.
