The Axial SCX10 II Raw Builders Kit gives you everything you need to build an SCX10 II slider, and the freedom to finish it off with your choice of body, tires, and wheels! This makes it easier for everyone to build a custom rig. You get the same scale AR44 high pinion axles, chassis-mounted servo mount, redesigned 3 gear transmission, front mounted battery tray, all aluminum suspension links, and suspension designed for nearly zero bump steer. These are just some of the features that make the SCX10 II optimized for performance. The Raw Builders Kit gives you what you need to create a machine that’s as custom as it is capable!
- AR44™ Single Piece Axles:
- Single piece axle housing for strength.
- Small pumpkin for increased clearance and scale realism.
- Optimized gear ratio (3.75) for reduced torque twist.
- High pinion gears for added ground clearance, better driveshaft angles, and increased durability.
- AX10™ Transmission:
- Scale looks on the outside — strong, all-metal Axial® gears on the inside!
- Mimics a real transmission with bell housing, oil pan, and 4X4 transfer case.
- 56T spur gear and 15T pinion — 32-pitch for durability.
- Final drive ratio (FDR) 40.44 with a range from 33.69 - 54.15.
- Efficient driveline with improved driveshaft angles to reduce stress on moving parts.
- Includes a full set of ball bearings.
- AR44™ Universal Axle Set:
- Universal joint axles allow up to 45 degrees of steering and provide smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain.
- Hardened steel construction.
- All Aluminum Suspension Links:
- All links are metal, including the steering.
- 4-Link rear suspension geometry reduces axle steer and torque twist.
- Custom tapered center – flared ends design.
- Large M4 rod ends.
- Gray anodized aluminum.
- CMS (Chassis Mounted Servo):
- Servo is moved from the top of the axle onto the chassis, just as a full-size truck's steering box is located on the frame.
- Enhances scale looks with proper suspension geometry.
- Anodized aluminum links included with M4 rod ends.
- Adjustable servo mounting system allows a wide range of servos to be used.
- Properly designed suspension for nearly zero bump steer.

The Perfect Starter for your Project, it's a bare Chassis, ready for you to build whatever your Heart desires!! Besides the awful Shocks, it IS a hardcore SCX10 Backbone, proven Strong.
The fact that it INCLUDES 3 sets of Links, to build either an 11.4", 12", or 12.3" Wheelbase, is really the icing on the cake!!
I'd recommend this to anyone.
I really expected better parts quality due to all the good things I heard about Axial. Found the plastic to be thin and very soft. I would assume since it's a crawler/trail truck that making the plastic a little thicker would add useful weight to the truck. Bought an aluminum servo arm from Axial but had to carve out some plastic from the link end that Axial mounted directly below the servo. Had to reduce the steering trim a lot due to the link mount location, servo arm hits it. There is a lot of flex in the chassis after assembly.
Still waiting on parts so haven't run the truck yet but I hope it will really impress me. I do like that Axial includes many extra plastic parts. I assume it's in case something brakes. Those extra parts could be useful for some custom addition. It does look good though.
if you really want a custom build is better to start from rails. with this kit, you are paying for several disposable parts.
In my mind, the new UMG10 kit at $100 more would have been a better choice to build for Axialfest. It has an interesting body and aluminum bodied shocks included.
Choosing electronics for this kit was easy for me; Reefs 422HD, Hobbywing 1080 ESC, and Holmes Crawlmaster Expert motor with the stock pinion from the kit. I was expecting it to have a bit more wheelspeed on 2s, 3s would probably be ideal, but I think the motor in combination with the gearing makes for an excellent low speed scaler thats super smooth and fun to drive through the technical bits. The only other crawler I have to compare this to is my Gen8 pack which I built out with similar electronics and I will say there is clear evidence why Axial has sold so many SCX10's over the years and will continue to. Instant favorite for me. The Gen8 does have a clear advantage in the ground clearance department with the portal axles, but the gearing in the Axial in combination with the rather scale looking articulation does it for me.
I topped the kit off with a Proline 1985 Toyota Hilux body and added some Proline Super Swamper TSL-SX tires with Boom Racing Terra 1.9 wheels. Looks great, like all the jacked up and SAS'd Toyotas driving around my home town.
This is my new favorite R/C, it is so much fun and I can't believe I waited so long to get one!
