The mad scientists at Axial have done it, they’ve resurrected the SMT10 monster truck platform, reintroducing it as both a ready-to-run (RTR) model and a kit platform. The SMT10 Raw Builders Kit offers the parts and pieces to build a durable monster truck model that can be customized to your liking.
Much like the original SMT10, this kit features a tube-frame chassis, AR60 OCP (off-center pumpkin) axles, an AX10 transmission with all-metal internal gearing, aluminum-bodied shocks, and 4-link suspension (among other things).
This kit offers a decent starting point for a custom monster truck build, however, a few additional components are needed to complete construction:
- Steering Servo
- Radio System
- Monster Truck Body
- Batteries (for the model and radio transmitter)
- Battery Charger
Priced at $199.99, the Axial SMT10 Raw Builders Kit will be available in early January. Visit horizonhobby.com to learn more about this 1/10-scale R/C monster truck kit.
