If you’ve ever wheeled the Axial SCX10 Base Camp RTR, you know it’s an impressive machine, even in stock form. You can now take that trail-driving, rock-crawling performance to the next level with the SCX10 III Base Camp Rock Crawler Builder’s Kit.
This is the first “raw” builder’s kit to be released under the SCX10 III banner and it appears Axial has done their homework. While you might expect a Base Camp kit to be a body-off copy of the ready-to-run (RTR) model, this kit offers a few changes.
Starting with the axles, you’ll find AR45 straight axles rather than portal axles included with this kit. Additionally, the suspension links are more substantial than those found on the Base Camp RTR. Other features of this kit include metal pivot balls, Axial’s LCXU transmission, and an optional dig function.
The SCX10 III Base Camp Rock Crawler Builder’s Kit requires the following items to complete:
- A 1/10-scale polycarbonate or “hard” body
- Body paint (appropriate for the type of body selected)
- A NiMh or LiPo battery and charger
- A 2.4GHz radio system (transmitter and receiver)
- Four wheels and tires (1.55″, 1.9″, or 2.2″)
