Axial XR10 Comp Rig

XR16For many years the 2.2 Class (now being called 2.2 Pro) has been the premier class in RC rock crawling. For the last couple of years the Axial Racing XR10 has been the choice for many of the top drivers in this class. I have been using this truck as my base since it was released in 2010. Since then almost every part has been replaced to make it the comp rig you see below. The most noticable change is the custom chassis. I designed and machined this chassis as I have done many times in the past. However this time I made the point of being more weight conscience as I designed it. This rig was not meant to be the uber-light as some have gone to but I still wanted to get down into the mid 4-pound range.

Workshop

In all of my searching to find a house, a basement workshop area was high on my priority list. When I found this house I knew I could transform the space into my perfect work area. The dark dinghy space had the perfect had potential to have everything I needed to work on all of my future projects. It would just take some careful planning, help from some friends, and a little cash.

AR15 Build Intro

20130106_182611_HDRFor years I have wanted to own an AR15. Recently I decided to bite the bullet (bad pun) and get one. After looking around I saw the overwhelming number of options. However, none of the seemed to be just what I wanted. The cheaper versions lacked some of the specific features I was looking for but the models that did have what I wanted were much more expensive due to a lot of other extras that I didn’t want to pay for either! Being that I like building things even more than actually using them generally, I decided I would just jump right in and assemble my own from scratch. This is an on-going project and will hopefully end in the completion of my first AR.

Orange Spider Rings

Orange Spider Rings

It didn’t take me long to want to replace the stock non-beadlock wheels on my Axial Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Being a Vanquish Products Team member I knew I would be running the OMF 1.9 Beadlocks. The great part about these wheels is how customizable they can be. There are hundreds of different color and style combinations to choose from.

The new Axial Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon has many Poison Spyder licensed products on it and many may not know that the style of the Vanquish Spider ring is a derivative of the original Poison Spyder beadlock wheel. Being that ORANGE is my color, the ring choice was an easy decision.

Axial Racing 2012 JK Unlimited Rubicon

Maiden voyage with the Axial Racing JK Unlimited Rubicon at Blue Springs Lake

I received my Axial JK Rubicon and couldn’t wait to get it out on the trail. A large amount of us have already owned Axial SCX10’s before. It has been an incredibly popular base for thousands of trucks. For those that haven’t though, it is a truck I would suggest to anyone. The realistic steel C-channel frame and proven axles have proven to be a solid combo since 2009. While most of the stuff underneath the body will not be a surprise to anybody that has owned an Axial, they have updated enough to make this truck stand out. Read more
