Axial is at it again, another RC Rock Crawler. This time a Ready-To-Crawl version of the ever popular Axial AX10 scorpion kit! The new Axial AX-10 Scorpion rc rock crawler is fully ready to rock crawl right out of the box! With the new Axial AX-10 RTC rc rock crawler, Axial has done a lot of things right to improve the basic AX-10 kit.
For starters Axial has added a slipper clutch to reduce gear wobble for a much more efficient drivetrain and also increases the durability of the drivetrain. Axial has also given the Axial AX10 ready to crawl solid rear axle lockouts which improve ground clearance while rock crawling.
The Axial AX-10 Ready-To-Crawl also includes a forward and reverse ESC and a 55T electric motor to power the rc rock crawler. Axial also upgraded the RTC rock crawler with Proline 2.2 8 hole beadlocks and even includes Proline Hammer rubber with Proline memory foams – both a big upgrade from the AX-10 scorpion kit version.
To keep the Proline Racing Hammers stuck to the ground, Axial has equipped the AX-10 Ready To Crawl with newly designed 72-103mm shocks! The new shocks feature threaded shock bodies to make pre-load adjustments a breeze. The new 3.5mm shock shaft reduces lateral movement while the cartridge style bottom helps reduce lateral movement while providing a better steal for less leakage. Axial has also include a silicone diaphragm to provide a more consistent feel and better seal to prevent leakage.
