axial_scx10_ram_power_wagon_01

We decided not to break any NDA’s and wait for the official announcement of the new Axial SCX10 Ram Power Wagon truck. The SCX10 platform is a proven winner, and the new scale Ram Power Wagon looks great on top of it! We are huge fans of the two piece body setup so you can change it up and add on the roll cage with flat bed.

Some highlight features are:
• WB8 HD Wildboar™ driveshafts
• Dual slipper clutch
• Single-coil, adjustable shocks
• Heavy duty differential lockers
• Officially licensed Walker Evans Racing wheels
• 1.9 Ripsaw tires (R35 compound)
• AE-5 waterproof ESC
• Tactic TSX45 water resistant metal gear servo

The part number is #AX90037, and it is priced at $359. You can get complete details by heading over to This Link on the Axial website.

Don’t forget to check out the video below!

Axial Wagon Ride
This week the BigSquidRC Bash Crew is back in Southern California and yesterday we got a chance to hang out with the folks at Axial Racing. As seen in the picture above, we got a chance to bash with the Axial crew and I can assure you they bash as hard, if not harder, than we do.

The more time we spend with the Axial crew, the more we find out how hardcore they are for not only their products, but also about the people that buy them. They absolutely want everyone who buys an Axial product to have the best (and most fun!) experience possible. We would like to personally thank Rodney, Jeff, Brandon, Jamie, Andrew, and Matt for bashing with us, we had a fantastic time and really appreciated their hospitality during our visit.

Heck, we posted 3/4 of a picture of the thing, with a link to where you could pre-order, and not only did we receive a record amount of traffic that day, I have heard the pre-orders from our page were through the roof! So does the Yeti deserve all the hype? Is this the rock racer the world has been waiting for? Click the ‘Read More’ to find out, and make sure to check out the video!
