The Axial SCX24 Deadbolt RTR 1/24 Scale Mini Crawler is the first Axial® off-roader in 1/24 scale. At less than 8" long, it's ideal for indoor fun, but performs so well, its equally suited to outdoor adventures as well. Even new drivers will be well-equipped to tackle tough climbs and rough trails. Like it's SCX10 big brother, the SCX24 uses plenty of steel components - from the C-channel frame rails to the front and rear axles and dogbones. Offering ready to run simplicity, scale looks, and confident handling on any trail, the SCX24 has the strength to keep pushing onward and upward.

The SCX24 chassis features a three-link front and four-link rear suspension for realistic handling. The combination of coil-over shocks and durable plastic suspension links delivers Axial-worthy crawling performance even at this small scale. Plus, worm gear axles provide high ground clearance with a low gear ratio that helps to reduce torque twist.

Powered by an included 180-size motor and LiPo battery, the SCX24 Deadbolt shows off competence and charisma on the trails. The shrunk down Deadbolt body provides the classic stance, bulging hood, realistic driver figure, and molded roll cage with realistic light bar that makes the 1/10 Deadbolt a performer - and the realism continues right down to the licensed KMC XD229 Machete Crawl wheels wrapped in Nitto Trail Grappler tires.

Adding even more to its beginner appeal, the SCX24 Deadbolt comes 100% complete and ready to run. Everything required for action is in the box: assembled and finished vehicle; Axial 2-channel 2.4GHz radio system with servo and ESC/receiver unit; Dynamite® 88T brushed electric motor and 350mAh 2S 7.4V LiPo battery; USB LiPo charger; and even four AA cells for the transmitter!

The SCX24 DeadBolt is an excellent mini crawler,"especially for the price"
"You Absolutely can't beat it",
there's not too many Mini's that run on a lipo battery,So far!,I have ran it for well over an hour without having too recharge it,Which was one of the biggest selling points for me.The SCX24 DeadBolt performs quite well in a variety of conditions,including doing some serious rock crawling on a outdoor crawler course
that was designed for 1/10 scale vehicles,I have quickly accumulated several hours of run-time on my SCX24 DeadBolt,along with my 12 year old daughter,"who absolutely loves it", I'm probably gonna get her one for Christmas, I highly recommend the SCX24 DeadBolt to beginners,and seasoned enthusiasts alike

You would not believe how capable this little crawler is. It is also very easy to make a few mods and make it your own. The platform is very simple and user friendly. Theres also extra ports available on the esc for future upgrades such as lights or even 4 wheel steering.

This is a fantastic, capable, and highly upgradable RTR. The worm gear diffs are very strong. I will be adding some weight over the axels, to make crawling even easier. I really like that the radio has dual rate, and 3 throttle modes.

A lovely little rig, that I bought mainly for indoor use. Primarily I will be running it on a homemade indoor course made from LEGO, where there are plenty of edges for the tires to grip, but I have run it a few times outdoors. It has tipped a few times in grass, due to being so light, but it has done well climbing obstacles, like rocks and landscaping ties, though your approach has to be just right over anything more than a few inches high. Tuning spring rate will likely help some, but it isn’t one of my priorities yet. It does well stock.

Run time I am not sure about yet. I simply haven’t run it long enough in a single run to empty the battery. I’d only be guessing to say it’s 30+ minutes. Don’t quote me on it though.

Access to the power switch is easy. Don’t even need to pop the body. Just flip her over, and you can get to it easily from the underside, though it’s not terribly exposed. There is a chance of sticks and such flipping the switch, but it hasn’t happened to me yet.

I have had issue with wet leaves wrapping around the axles/hubs, and one should be mindful of that, but it hasn’t caused any perceptible negative effect on driving in my limited experience. It just takes a little more time for cleaning is all. I could see it causing premature wear and stress damage if ignored though.

All in all, it’s very capable for it’s size, but it’s a little top heavy stock, compared to it’s bigger brothers. My first modification will be to add a little weight down low. Other than that, I am more than satisfied with my purchase.

Great little truck. It is a blast to drive around but it does have a tendency to roll over if you aren't careful.

Awesome little crawler. Great low speed control and great articulation from the suspension. Many upgrades available and a great start to someone who want to get into R/C crawling. Also, since its small, you can use indoors.

Great for beginners! I just started getting into rock crawlers and this was a great choice. It didn't break the bank and it can work inside or outside! I am always watching videos to learn about this stuff.

Okay, as for shipping and everything else: No problems whatsoever! I was actually surprised with how fast my package arrived. It was bubble wrapped and well taken care of.

Luckily, this website was well thought out. I was able to watch videos, review specs, learn EVERYTHING about the SCX24 before I made the decision to go with the purchase. I was very grateful because I am very skeptical about ordering things online (from an whom/whatever) for the FIRST TIME!

Thank you Hobby Town, and Thank you Horizon Hobby!

Excellent little guys, these are some of my most enjoyable rigs that I have. Don't have great local places to crawl, not a problem because you can build an indoor easily and cheap.

This little truck ROCKS. It probably helps that I had generally low expectations. I just wanted something small for the kids that I could throw in the car as an afterthought. Honestly, it is sooo good. Super impressive scale behavior. The tires flex and grip just like full size off road tires. The dinky little springs load and unload like full size shocks. The COG is very similar to full size. You can get the tires to bounce and grab when you are pushing the limits of adhesion. Only gripe would be that it’s pretty slow if you’re not crawling. But for what it’s designed for, it is super.

Bought this kit last April. Have only been able to put in about 2 hours of total drive time. Motor failed, had to wait for parts. Then charger failed, had to wait for parts. Then battery failed, have to wait again for parts. Barely driven in over a year of ownership

Here's a little more info on failures:

Motors stop working: I don't think this is the fault of the manufacturer. They are tiny motors and I let my 3 year old drive it. At $5 a pop, I wasn't too concerned and thought it would be fun to teach him. I guess the problem is they are never in stock. I had to wait about 3 months after the 1st one burnt out to get new ones. The second one quickly burnt out as well. So, even though I had extras and installed the 3rd motor, I ran into the next issue.

Battery Charger stopped working: This does seem to be because of quality as you would think it would be difficult for the user to somehow use a USB charger wrong. This added substantial delays as this part was also out of stock. Just got blinking lights. Battery not charging at all. Ordered new charger.

Battery almost exploded: So, after I got a new charger (about 2 month delay I think) I plugged in my battery. Luckily I checked it after about an hour of charging because the thing was on the verge of exploding. So now I don't know if the original charger was bad or if it was the battery. Regardless, I now need to order a new battery, but actual might hold off and just buy something else.
