EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – AXIAL RACING SCX10 II 1955 FORD F-100 RTR SPOTLIGHT
Axial Racing has not let up on the scale skinny pedal all year and has released another rig! The new Axial Racing SCX10 II Ford F-100 RTR is taking the RTR body game to another level with a four-piece bed and the super scale hinge pin body mounts. The 1955 Ford F-100 is a much-needed scale body in an 1/10 world of Jeeps. This body looks killer and the four-piece bed allows you to have options on the style right out of the box. run it with fenders on for a classic look or take them off and get an aggressive caged comp rig. Not to mention simply taking four screws out to remove the fenders for paint rather then tedious masking. We would have loved to see the lights in the light buckets but when you start to get into it you understand completely why the light are on the bumper. But Brian has been pushing the topic of getting the lights in the buckets and I already have an idea.
When Brian and I did the unboxing, I noticed the tires looked familiar and sure enough I was right. The MAXXIS Trepador S30 tires are back and this time on some slick 1.9 Method Hole Wheels. The wheels and tires look great, but the tires are a different story in the performance department. If you plan on just doing some light trail running, then you have nothing to worry about. Its when the tires meet an incline, they fall fate on there face and just slip. It’s a simple and usually the first mod done to any rig so don’t let that stop you.
As for the rest of the rig it’s still the same 12.3 SCX10 II chassis with the new Spektrum electronics that are the new standard for Axial RTR rigs. The SCX10 II chassis is one of the smoothest RTR chassis in the market at least I think it is and is a great platform for a scale build in fact we are using a SCX10 II chassis for one of our Ultimate Scale Truck Expo builds for 2020. So far, we have seen the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, Trail Honcho, deadbolt and the 1969 Chevy Blazer all utilizing the same chassis. This is my official request for the next SCX10 II based rig to be a 1992 Dodge Power Ram 250 please.
The 1955 Ford F-100 is sure to be under a lot of trees this year and will also look great hauling a scale tree once its out of the box just saying. If Axial Racing can stay hungry and don’t get complacent you expect a lot of great products to come from the New age Axial Racing. As always, we can’t wait to see what the master builders will do with the 1955 Ford I for one have some ideas that involve RC4WD Falken Wildpeak H/T tires and wood for the bed.
With the cold winter weather approaching fast make sure to get out as much as possible and don’t let the NON scale leaves drive you crazy like the do to me. No joke I found my self brushing off a game trail by my home for some of the 1955 Ford run video all while cursing fall and winter. Looking to move out of Illinois any suggestions? LOL . Have a great weekend and keep Scalin’!
