The SBG Wall Rock Rig

By AR on Jan 10, 2012

We at Axial are constantly amazed by the creations of the scale rock crawling community. There is so much talent and imagination floating around the internet, that we often spend some time passing links around the office showing our co-workers the unique approach to using Axial products. In 2011 we were contacted by Kevin Jowett of the Scale Builders Guild (Formerly Crawl Canada), he expressed interest in tackling a big project using almost all Axial product. He explained that he wanted to build a rock racer style buggy based on the CopiousRC chassis featuring independent front suspension made from an SCX10 axle housing. Truth be told, the marketing staff sat back with one eye wide open and one slightly closed trying to put together mentally how he was going to pull this off. The reality was, we did not know how he could pull this off, we only know that when Kevin says he is going to do something, he does it, and does it well.We promptly gave Mr. Jowett the thumbs up and thanked him for his continued support of Axial.

Almost immediately we started receiving images from Kevin. This little “Wall Rock Rig” is going to be cool. It featured a full tube chassis created by one of his forum members “Copious” (Jason Wall). Most if not all of the drivetrain components would come from the SCX10, including the axles, transmission, shocks. The SCX10 front axle was dissected and made into a 3rd member that delivered power to each of the independently suspended front wheels. This is an absolutely awesome custom made rig, we cant wait to see some video of it in action! For the complete step by step build, be sure to visit the Scale builders Guild thread at:
