The Axial SMT10 Grave Digger RTR 1/10 4WD Monster Truck is a true-to-scale, 4-wheel drive, straight-axle Monster Jam RC truck that’s the perfect basher for everyone from scale RC enthusiasts to full-size monster truck fans. Licensed from Feld Motorsports, the genuine Grave Digger ‘50s-era panel van body is as ghoulishly real as it gets, from the trademark graveyard paint scheme and chrome Zoomie headers to the driver figure with glow-in-the-dark helmet. BKT Monster Jam style tires with foam inserts add more scale realism along with impressive grip and handling on a wide range of terrain.

Everything going on beneath the scale body is just as exciting. Axial designers went all out when creating the chassis and roll cage for the SMT10 Grave Digger monster truck. Very similar to those of full-size Monster Jam trucks, the SMT10 tube frame chassis was developed for maximum strength and has an extremely realistic appearance. There are a variety of shock mounting points for suspension tuning options, with additional mounting points on the cage and at the axle for moving the shocks to a more scale, vertical position if desired. Mated to the proven Axial AR60 axle, the 4-link suspension soaks up any obstacles in its path.

The SMT10 comes factory-built and ready-to-run with updated, improved electronics and radio gear. The Dynamite 550-size motor provides higher torque and top speed for pulling off radical monster truck moves. It’s matched with a LiPo- and NiMH-compatible Dynamite 60A ESC that features forward/brake/reverse, forward/brake and crawler drive modes.

The included FHSS 2.4GHz radio gear is all high-quality Spektrum brand equipment. The STX2 2-channel transmitter and SRX200 receiver provide fast response and outstanding range. Enjoy precise, interference-free control while striking terror in your bashing competition!


  • MORE POWER! 550 SIZED 12-TURN MOTOR: Among the updates Axial designers have given this Grave Digger® truck is a more powerful Dynamite® 550-size 12-turn brushed motor. It provides increased torque and top speed to help you pull off radical monster truck moves.

  • SMT10™ TUBE FRAME CHASSIS: Axial went all out when designing the chassis and roll cage for the SMT10™ Grave Digger Monster Jam® Truck. Very similar to the modern era full size monster trucks, this chassis was developed for maximum strength and an extremely detailed appearance. The chassis offers many pivot points for suspension tuning. Scale realism and strength are achieved through triangulation of the chassis tubes, making it ready for maximum attack and hard core Monster Truck bashing.
  • BKT MONSTER JAM TIRES: BKT is the official and exclusive tire manufacturer of Monster Jam® and its fleet of monster trucks. Their special BKT Monster Jam Tire is purpose-built for the rigors of Monster Jam Truck racing and freestyle competition — just as these 1/10 scale BKT tires provide scale realism and maximum performance for your Axial® Monster Jam truck. Foam inserts included.
  • 2.2 MONSTER TRUCK WHEELS: The 2.2 monster truck wheels are molded from high-quality nylon and secured with a solid 12mm hex mount. Breather holes improve handling by allowing air to escape and minimizing the bounce when tires impact the ground.
    • 2.2 Monster Truck Wheels (silver)
    • Molded from a blend of high quality nylon materials for strength and durability
    • Solid 12mm hex mount
  • AR60™ OCP-AXLE: AR60 OCP-Axle - The AR60 OCP-Axle™ is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon.

  • WB8 HD DRIVESHAFTS: The Grave Digger truck’s WB8 HD driveshafts feature an updated design with a larger diameter crosspin (2x11mm) for extra strength. Material added on the center splined slider reduces flex and fatigue.
  • REAR SWAY BAR: The rear sway bar helps to keep torque twist and body lean to a minimum during acceleration. The SMT10™ chassis design allows you to add an optional sway bar to the front if desired.
  • MULTIPLE SHOCK MOUNTING POSITIONS: Axial included a variety of shock mounting points for additional suspension tuning options. There’s also additional mounting points on the cage and at the axle for moving your shocks to a more scale, vertical position if desired.

Axial SMT10 Grave Digger RTR 1/10 4WD Monster Truck
I've been out of the hobby for about 15 years, and when I saw this truck I had to have it! I was staggered by how detailed and well built this thing was, right out of the box. No problems whatsoever after bashing this thing hard for a week on 3S LiPo, with the stock 12T motor and 14t pinion. Some people will "upgrade" with metal control arms and other components, but I wouldn't recommend doing that because you'll just break more expensive parts of the truck. The stock components are flexible, which helps the truck absorb big jumps and bashing without breakage. The only metal parts I would recommend installing are internal sleeves for the plastic axle tubes, which are prone to breakage.

The stock radio has rate and trim adjustments, which you will need because the front tires rub the lower control arms at about 70% lock. The stock electronics are cheap, so I installed a more modern digital FlySky 2.4 radio and receiver. I would also recommend installing a second set of sway bars and mounts on the front axle, otherwise this thing will roll over all the time. Larger clod-buster style MT wheels/tires should work fine, and would help with the stability issues. I have a brushless motor/ESC that I plan to install for more power and better run times once I burn up the original 12T.

If you are on the fence, then buy this truck! When you order it, also get a sway bar and sway bar mount kit for the front axle, axle tube sleeves, and use a better digital radio/receiver. Other than that, it's about perfect!

A great scale replica from Axial of the Grave Digger monster truck. Everything worked great out of the box & the 12 turn motor & metal gear transmission is a great upgrade. I installed a front sway bar (same as the rear) & it improves all around stability. I did have a missing spring perch on the left rear but I had a spare in my parts box, so no problem. Nice product from Axial!

I’ve been waiting a long time to get my hands on this truck! A real solid axle 1/10 monster truck, the SMT10 does not disappoint! At $299 I feel this price is worthy. Updated esc and now a 12t brushed motor gives the truck the added punch that the first version lacked!
Although I’m sure I’ll go brushless at some point, I feel this package is much improved over the first release, and is fun to drive and watch it behave like a real monster truck!

Axial SMT10 Grave Digger RTR 1/10 4WD Monster Truck
I absolutely love this truck. Note: the stock servo is a 23T if you want to upgrade the servo horn, and for the stock 12T motor it comes with a 14 and 16 tooth pinion.It is fun right out of the box, especially with the 16t pinion on 2s lipo, but once you start upgrading things it really becomes a whole new level of fun. I have a brushless system in mine now which allowed for much longer run times as well as more power of course. I don't recommend running the stock brushless motor on a 3s even though the manual says it can take it. With a brushless system and bigger tires you will want to upgrade other parts of the drivetrain and steering, but that can be done as things break since it is a monster truck and just like real ones with big tires and lots of power when you start doing tricks, getting big air, and rolling the vehicle it will eventually make parts fail. It's all part of the fun in having an RC monster truck.

Looks great runs ok for a brushed motor. Has spectrum electronics, so upgrades are going to be a necessity. The front tires rub on the frame and requires radio tuning to adjust limits, however effects turning radius. But overall great truck. Still new so we have time to see how well its built.

Fantastic, I have always wanted a grave digger since I saw it for its first ever debut. It is absolutely awesome out of the box, although to truly make it mine I did upgrade it to the sidewinder 4 and castle brushless motor, it's the perfect combo for speed and control. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS TRUCK AND HOBBY TOWN!

I love the car. I bought it for my son and he loves it. He managed to run it into the fence first thing and broke the front servo column. This is no fault on the car, this is a 6-year-old not paying attention.

However, after I got the parts and started fixing it, the entire set is a really bad design. So I upgraded it to all steel. :) Works great now. Food for thought, upgrade the front steering column first thing. It will help you out in the long run.
