It will be five years ago in April when the first Axial AX10 Scorpion hit the market back in 2007. Axial felt that it was time for the product that launched them into the crawling segment to undergo some evolution and receive some trickle-down technological advancements of its own!
Axial hasn’t changed the original scope of the vehicle, the AX10 Ridgecrest is still the “Leatherman” of the Axial product line and it’s where backyard crawling begins. They have taken key items from their Axial products and put them into the Axial AX10 Ridgecrest, along with an all-new tube style chassis.
The most noticeable performance upgrade of the Axial AX10 Ridgecrest are the Ripsaw tires, with their 5.5″ tall by 2.1″ wide stance, mounted on officially licensed Raceline Renegade wheels. But what you do not see is the updated suspension geometry that also delivers better articulation. All delivered through Dana 60 inspired AR60 OCP-Axles that have already been proven on the Axial Wraith.
The Axial AX10 Ridgecrest is a highly capable, affordable starting point for anyone. If you are not sure what you want to do and how you want to do it within the various segments of crawling, the AX10 Ridgecrest is the most versatile truck with scale looks, performance driven components and the right amount of speed mixed with technical crawling prowess – all in one rig.
