Default best 1/10 rc crawler

Best 1/10 rc crawler that's not a scale crawler or a trail rig.

If I missed one let me know and I will post it up.

Maybe you should post this on the Crawler forums.

But my picks are the AX10 and XR10.....

LOL, it doesnt compare to the XR10 at all! the rs10 XT costs $170 and come ready to run with a battery. the XR10 is twice that and then you need to buy all the electronics and install them.

the RS10 XT is a "bang for the buck" crawler. it has plenty of power(yes the motors are 390 sized, but they are 70 turn and geared low) the suspension is soft with lots of articulation. the battery mount is low in the chassis, and the 4 wheel steering works good.

but it doesnt compare to the XR10. that thing's axles and gearboxes are really slim and are a thing of beauty! the body was designed to be more likely to cause it to roll back onto its wheels.

sounds like you need to narrow down your choices by figuring out how much you want to spend.
the rs10 and axial ax10's are both good starter trucks. the axial XR10 is a top of the line truck built with hours of reasurch and developement.

I already made my mind up a while ago I'm justing waiting and I'm trying to find the right used ax10 or venom at the right price hopefully under $150 for the ax10 or cheaper for the venom.
I would really like to have a xr10 because I imagine that it would break less parts because it does not have half shafts.But those are to new and also to expensive.
I mainly just made the poll to see what other people like.

AX-10 is a good start. But the Losi comp crawler is even better for rocks. The Losi comp crawler
is already setup out of the box for Rocks. The AX-10 isnt perfect for rocks some setup is required to get it competition ready.
But if your just playing the Ax-10 is the better choice.
