Axial SCX10 Trail Honcho RTR...
« on: Jan 03, 2013, 11:06:34 PM »
Just got the new trail honcho RTR for christmas, it's been a great scale wheeler so far but we(my kid and I) did a few mods to make it better... First we lowered the battery tray by half an inch, then we removed the bumpstops for more shock travel, raised the front bumper half an inch and upgraded to the 2.2 axial rockster beadlock wheels and the losi 2.2 rock claw tires! We cant wait to get this thing out on the trail!! Here's how it looks now...

Looks great! I'm thinking about getting one of these or the Traxxas Slash F-150 SVT Raptor. How fast can the SCX10 go?
Time to go wheelin!

Thanks! It comes with a 27turn motor so it's top speed is pretty slow maybe 10mph?? ...but it has a lot of torque wich Is great for crawling and the esc has the built in drag brake wich is great for hill descent! :driving:

Looking good. Those are great tires. I recommend going aluminum Chubs and knuckes as well on the front. Unless you really want to, the stock axles put up with a ton of abuse, I've never had to replace anything in either rear axle of my two Axials. Stock axle shafts are pretty tough. I think that kit comes with the newer Axial driveshafts so those will probably take some abuse.

Bryce that thing is pretty cool, I've been wanting one of those.   This is my little XR10. We'll have to take them up and play once the snow melts.

Thanks! It took me about 2hours to build the bumper, I'm really happy with the way I turned out! For the winch plate i made a cardboard template then cut out of sheet metal, then i used 3/16 round steel for the tubing, then mig welded it all together! It's really stout and the stinger helps a lot with forward rollovers!! :beerchug:

Yes a winch is the plan!  :thumbs:

Yes it is very caplble right out of te box but be prepared to spend another 3-400 on upgrades if you want to get serious! If i would do it again id spend the money and buy the trail finder 2...

I'm no expert but just from youtube videos, and a couple little forum threads the tf2 doesn't look as capable as the scx10.  Scale a realistic yes but overall performance seems to be lacking...maybe I have had bad videos to see?  :dunno:
