October 9th - 12th, 2012 - The Axial Rubicon Trek Recently, the Axial SCX10 completed an incredible trek by overlanding one of the most recognized off-road trails in the world - The Rubicon Trail. Starting at Loon Lake, the Axial SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon made it's way along the Rubicon Trail until it finally reached it's destination, three days later, at the Homewood staging area. And by traveling approximately twenty miles through some of the Rubicon Trail's harshest spots like Gatekeeper, Walker Hill, Lil Sluice, Soup Bowl and Cadillac Hill, The SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon earned the coveted Jeep® brand Trail-Rated® badge. Just like their full-scale counterparts, the SCX10 had to earn this badge. And what better way to do it than on the very trail Jeep® uses as a proving ground for their vehicles. TRAIL PROVEN PERFORMANCE Axial has joined forces with the most recognized name in off-roading - Jeep®. The SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon was designed to resemble its full sized "scale/1:1" counterpart. We really did our research with this vehicle by building a full scale version for testing, research and development. We wanted to make sure you'd get the best built SCX10, right out of the box. GO OVERLAND, DO EXPEDITION The heart of any reliable four wheel drive vehicle starts with the drivetrain and the SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon has been fitted with the ultra reliable and globally proven SCX10 axles. Everything from the axle strength, pinion angle, caster, and ground clearance were taken into consideration when designing these axles. The result is a far superior axle that will stand up to some severe punishment. To ensure added longevity from the start, a high-tolerance sintered diff locker is included along with hardened axle shafts. The SCX10 also includes a rock solid transmission with a protective cover to keep dirt and debris out of your pinion and spur gear and an adjustable slipper clutch that allows the motor to work more efficiently which greatly enhances the durability of the drivetrain by allowing the transmission to slip in hard binds. The SCX10 mates the transmission and axles to an even more realistic or "scale" metal c-channel frame. The realistic high strength c-channel chassis frame is made of durable steel with cross bracing for reinforcement and is held together with all hex hardware. Realistic shock hoops with multiple shock mounting positions allow you to adjust your suspension for maximum performance. The SCX10 also runs true to scale wheels and tires. We've included a set of officially licensed Maxxis Trepador tires molded in our R35 sticky compound which offers superior grip and they're mounted on two-tone Walker Evans Racing wheels for great looks! These are taller than our Ripsaw 1.9 tires which gives you more ground clearance, bump absorption and trail ruggedness for smooth, stable performance on your favorite trails. The SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is designed for fun, especially if you have a few friends that have scale rigs. Getting a few guys together and going out for a scale trail run is one of the most enjoyable things you can do if you're an avid off-roading enthusiast. The SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is a 1:10 scale rig that provides full scale fun!
