Further Description/Back Story The original goal with this truck was to use up some spare parts around my workbench. After looking at how to create an Axial that would be unique, that plan changed. I quickly decided on the leaf conversion kit and some upgraded axles to go with it. Because I didn't want to over do the power, but have smooth control on delivery, I selected the new Hobbywing AXE system to power the truck. A Reefs RC servo provided good value for the spec I wanted and the Spektrum receiver plays nicely with my existing DX5C. I ended up with the TRX-4 Blazer body as it had the look this build needed. With that decided, the bumpers, wheels and tires naturally fell into place. Overall this build required very little modification of parts for everything to fit together. I look forward to grabbing this truck and hitting the trails soon.
