Kodiak, Alaska can get pretty frosty in winter, so in the evenings Cole Hockema likes to warm his Axial SCX10 II by the fire! No word on specific fireproofing mods for the kit-built crawler, but it can handle the ice part thanks to snow chains Cole designed and built himself. When the weather is more seasonable the BF Goodrich all-terrains mounted on Axial 8-hole beadlocks (on 12mm hex wideners) work just fine. When not lit by campfire, the Jeep Cherokee Sport-bodied SCX relies on a Pro-Line 2-inch light bar on the front bumper. Power comes courtesy of an AE-5 controller and a Trailbreaker 35T motor.
