  • I got a AX-10 RTR

    Well, after turning my first AX-10 (Kit version) into a scaler, I then needed a 2.2 rig, so I thought I'd try the RTR this time.

    I saw some of the rockracers people were building on RCC, and I thought the AX-10 RTR might be a decent start to one. Well, after about five minutes of bashing it on the rocks at Frick, I broke the servo. No big deal, I know if I played with it ruff, it would break. I got a new servo today and played with it in my house.

    I'm running it stock except for the servo (MG645) and internal spring in the shocks, and the front diff is locked. I tig wielded some 3/16" solid steel rod to make a roll cage for it. It ain't pretty, but at least I don't of a plastic body on the thing anymore.

    With the 27 turn motor and 20 tooth pinion, it pretty quick, and takes some finesse on the throttle to get it to crawl. It's been pretty fun trying to get it to crawl, and I can't wait for things to dry up outside and get the thing back down to Frick Park.

    Anyway, here's a pic and a little vid.

      i would also get some 1/4" brake line, 1/4" all thread, and some revo reod ends and make some solid links. those plastic ones are not going to hold up to the comp environment very long.

      like the cage work. looking good!!

        Looking good.

        As Del mentioned you will need to follow the 2008 USRCCA rules for Bodiless vehicles to be comp legal.


        The quick simple explanation of the Bodiless Class is:

        Must have

        A) Hood
        B) Roof raised 1" from hood
        C) Sidepanels of 1" x 2.5"
        D Length of 8.5"
        E) Height of 3.75"
        F) Width of 3.0"
        G) Should resemble a 1:1 vehicle

        Thats the simple /basic explanation, and the exact wording can be found in Section 2 of the 2008 USRCCA Rules.

            I'm not to concerned about getting it comp legal right now, because I just don't see myself being able to make it to the comps anytime soon. The comps are just to far away (maybe if you guys had some local comps).


            Anyway, I made it down to Frick today, and slapped a little vid together. Go easy on me about the vid, I'm very new to video editing.

            Here's a pic of my AX-10 after the trip to Frick. It's a little dirtier and has a few more scratches on it now than it did before the trip.
