SCX10 in the Sand

By Axial Staff on Jun 03, 2009

I threw a set of Pro-Line Sand Paw paddle tires on the scaler and went out to the wash near the office. High horsepower + 4wd + paddle tires = good times!! I can’t wait to hit the dunes out at Johnson Valley with it.

    nice truck, just wondering if axial is going to make parts or make like a pre-runner edition of the scx10 very nice truck

    Nice ride, can you send pictures without the body on?

  6. Default_avatar Bender Posted on 2009-07-01 13:12:52

    Thanks. No plans to make an SCX10 pre-runner edition. This truck is basically a stock SCX10 with a few custom parts and some aftermarket Axial parts bolted up.

    It’ll probably go about 25mph max. Not super fast, but fast enough for some fun off road.

    Very nice truck, just wondering what gears u are using since u said it hits 25, i was looking for more top end but was looking at changing the motor but i would rather do gears

    I’m running a 23t pinion on a 12t motor with an 87t spur. It’s more of a high speed basher then a crawler. It can crawl but the motor heats up pretty fast. I could still get more top speed if I went to a smaller spur gear though.

    I’ll try and get a few pictures posted with the body off soon.

    what 12 turn motor did you use in the truck?

  12. Default_avatar nick Posted on 2010-02-13 15:51:39

    also forgot to ask, did you use the stock speed controller (like the one in the TR model), or did you use something else. thanks

    That is a sweet truck.. looks like it rips… kinda reminds me of mine… i have the dingo trail truck with a brushless 9turn or 4400 kv motor 65amp speedo it rips to…. it is alot of fun up here in michigan… mud, snow, sand,

  14. Default_avatar Kash Posted on 2010-03-09 18:48:12

    Is it a stock axial 12t motor?

  15. Default_avatar Kash Posted on 2010-03-09 18:51:35

    I mean what brand is the motor?

  16. Default_avatar Bender Posted on 2010-03-10 08:40:14

    I used an old Novak Super Rooster in this truck.

  18. Default_avatar Bender Posted on 2010-03-10 08:41:00

    It’s a 12t Traxxas Slash motor on 3S.

    are those working fans? and where is the tire rack from or is that custom?

  20. Default_avatar Anthony Posted on 2010-08-01 09:46:13

    I was thinking of buying a SCX10 and but a Mamba Max 5700 and add some paddle tires on it for hill climb races. Do you think the 5700 is too much? Or, could I use a small pinion and larger spur to get around it?

  22. Default_avatar Posted on 2011-07-24 17:25:54
