2005 marked the birth of the Axial brand, and shortly after, thoughts about the first SCX10â¢ began, with development wrapping up in 2008. The SCX10â¢ was introduced to the world as a builders kit, paving the way, or better yet, raising the bar for a new generation of scale trail enthusiasts. Previously, hobbyists had to âscratch buildâ a rig which presented a lot of technical hurdles to overcome. The SCX10â¢ kit gave these âartistsâ time to focus their attention on other things like personalization and visual customization by removing the issues scratch-built scale rigs presented. And, it wasnât just as a great kit to build, it was also a very capable driving machine, making it the de facto scale rig the world over. The SCX10â¢ chassis platform provided all the technical attributes as well as scale looks with its signature all-metal twin c-channel frame, solid performing transmission and axles that provided enough realism with capabilities to match.
With the SCX10â¢ II, weâve kept essence of the SCX10â¢ there with all-metal twin c-channel frame rails, but thatâs only 2% of the 98% of a completely new design. Scale AR44â¢ high pinion axles, a chassis mounted servo (CMS), re-designed transmission, front mounted battery tray, all aluminum suspension links, and a properly designed suspension for nearly zero bump steer. These are just a few of the features built into the all new SCX10â¢ II.
