    If Axial were a girl she'd be my girlfriend...

    I think I've found a new favorite manufacturer. Axial is just awesome. I'm on my third Axial (Exo, Wraith Poison Spyder, SCX10 Jeep C/R) and got my brother into his first (Wraith). The Wraith and SCX10 platforms are just so versatile. There are so many aftermarket options out there that the possibilities are endless, well except for that whole thing about money haha. I would highly recommend any Axial vehicle to any first time RCer/first time crawler or scaler simply because of the aftermarket support and customer support. Brother's Wraith's stock servo never seemed right out of the box, called up Great Planes and after a five minute phone call had an upgraded Futaba metal gear servo on it's way to my door, all completely free of charge. And just for some fun, had to throw in some pictures! Enjoy.

    The rigs:
    1. My Wraith Poison Spyder Edition (shown stock, then with black body, then green as it sits now)- brushless, metal gear tranny, steel rear driveshaft, RC4WD Baja Claws mounted on Integy beadlocks, Venom aluminum shocks, Integy front bumper, Savox waterproof servo (previously had a Savox 1231SG on it but manage to pull the wires out of it), Ofna aluminum 25t servo arm, Hot Racing aluminum front steering linkage, and plenty of marine grease packed in the axles, run on Zippy 2200mah 20c 2s or Venom 3s 2100mah 20c
    2. My SCX10 Jeep C/R Edition- completely stock but not for long (LRP Vektor 17.5t sensored brushless on the way), run on GForce 5000mah 50c 2s
    3. Bro's Wraith- completely stock besides Futaba metal gear servo, run on Venom 4100mah 25c 2s
    4. Buddy's orange AX10 Scorpion seen in mud photo

    Nice one.... I'm so jealous, I've only got a scx10 and would kill for a wraith... I've always wanted to get one and fit a proline tru scale Raptor body so I could have a even bigger crawler

    my only tip. Don't fill the diff up with marine grease it only needs a light coating... Because the grease is very sticky it will cause excessive drag on the axles... Same deal as with prop shafts on EP boats

    it might not cause any damage but it's not a good thing either

    yea like my honcho want to pick up a dingo kit someday


    Only thing I've ever really done to my honcho was install a light bar on the roof
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.
    Click on My models to see some of what I own. Eventually will add the rest
