Tekin Builds Ep. 15 – Axial UMG10 Chassis Assembly [VIDEO]

From Tekin:
New month, new build! The Axial SCX10 platform has been the standard in scale crawling for over a decade. The potential to create whatever you are dreaming of is basically unlimited! The UMG10 is a kit version of the SCX10-II platform and heavily resembles the ever-popular Unimog from Mercedes Benz. This 1/10 scale kit gives builders a very nice platform to start with and from there create whatever they desire.

We are starting out our build by assembling axles and to give our truck an edge we are building the axles completely from aftermarket parts! Beef Tube AR44 housings provide 50g of weight and added strength to the axle tubes, Vanquish 6-bolt locker and gears beef up the inside, Vanquish shock/link mounts on the outside and RC4WD portal assemblies to top off our “Unimog” axles.

We are also building our transmission and chassis, preparing our UMG10 for shocks, suspension links and axles to be mounted up. Hope you enjoy this episode and please leave comments and questions below!
