Axial Gets Scale
Axial rocked the scale crawler market with the SCX-10, and they’re about to do it again with their new scale accessory kits. If you opt for the scale interior kit, you’ll snag 3 different steering wheels, door handles, window cranks, arm rests, a number of different shifters, a gun rack (guns included) and all the necessary hardware. The exterior kit includes windshield wipers, a fire putter-outer, and mirrors. A cool feature of the mirrors is the number of included spacers to get the angle just right for that ultra-realistic look. Both sets are available in black or chrome.
Axial has also made a very nice headlight kit, called the Night Visions System. It includes a controller for headlights, tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals. There are auxiliary slots for any other lights if you feel the need for more. The blinkers activate when the wheels turn, and the brakes light up when you get on the brakes. All the lights are LED’s. If you happen to break any of the light strings, replacements can be had separately. The control box itself is a compact 47x32x23mm ~ 1.8x 1.25×0.9” (Width x Depth x Height). There is a separate on off switch for all the auxiliary slots. The switch for the control box also is separate, making it easier to reach.
