A Throwback for the Trail: Axial's SCX10 II 1955 Ford F-100

By: Tim Gluth

It's time to add another branch to Axial's SCX10 II family tree (and another entry in my 1/10-scale R/C Crawler Guide). Expanding their list of ready-to-run (RTR) trail trucks, Axial has announced the SCX10 II 1955 Ford F-100.

Based on the proven SCX10 II platform, this model features the body of a 55' Ford F-100 pickup and is beautifully detailed from bumper to bumper.

The grille realistically recreates the front-end of a 1:1 F-100 and includes LED-ready headlights and turn markers. Not to leave you in the dark, there are two pre-mounted LED driving lights that you'll find mounted on the front bumper.

The body features a hinged mounting design for easy access to the rig's inner-workings and the bed has been constructed from four parts for greater depth and greater realism. Two body color options are available for this model, allowing you to choose from green or brown.

As for electronics, this rig features a Spektrum STX2 transmitter/SRX200 receiver combo, a 35-turn brushed motor, Dynamite AE-5L ESC (with drag brake), and a Spektrum S605 steering servo.
