Upgrades and Hop-ups for the Axial SCX10 III

By: Tim Gluth

Axial’s SCX10 III is the latest evolution of their 1/10-scale R/C crawler platform. Since the original SCX10 hit the scene, it has managed to gain an impressive track record (not to mention a large, loyal following) among scale R/C enthusiasts.

The SCX10 III brings more to the table than just an updated model name. Many elements found on today’s mainstream trail rigs have been incorporated into this model, including portal axles, full inner fenders, and plenty of scale details. Although this is a stunning rig in either kit or ready-to-run (RTR) form, part of the fun of this hobby lies within customizing and upgrading your vehicles.

If you’re an owner of an SCX10 III and want to make it match your style, here is a running list of upgrades to help you make it your own.
