    RC Rock Crawlers, I am hooked!

    Well, after playing with Scarsman's and his kids axial SCX10's a few times, I finally got my own. I picked up the Axial SCX10 Honcho RTR. After figuring out what battery and charger to get, thanks to Robert, I got a fun new toy. It's something I can do with my boys and when I am jonezing for some wheeling.

    Due to a fire and some closed trails, we got to put in a lot of trail time with our RC crawlers. Lets just say this wasn't the only time Scarsman recovered my vehicle while on the trail.

    The mods have already begun. Thanks to Scarsman I have KMW rock sliders and tie rod. I also flipped the drive shafts to protect the teeth. Next up will be a KMW bumper, and some beadlocks.



    It is yet another fun addictive hobby that will help drain the bank account.

    Made some upgrades to my SCX-10 Honcho. The sliders I got from Knight Metal Works, they don't flex like the stock plastic and hold my saddle pack battery packs. I also got an upgraded metal tie-rod from KMW for improved steering response.

    I picked up a set of Rock Beasts with Single stage foam inserts from Crawler Innovations. The foam inserts are waterproof and help the tires look and perform like real tires would. I installed those with a set of black Axial beadlocks. I replaced the stock plastic suspension links with some aluminum ones I got off of Ebay. With the new links I was able to replace the stock 3 link setup in front with a 4 link setup.





    Next up is a new front metal winch bumper from Knight Metal Works. Also need one more wheel so I can swap out my stock spare. I would also like to get the interior kit for the Honcho.

    We are headed to Bend next week, supposed to have some fun areas to play... for the full size and rc truck.

    Not officially. There are H3 bodies out there, they would have originally been on a Newbright RC and are modified to fit these trucks.

    One of my sons just got a NewBright H3 body to put on his. He's working on getting it modded to mount on the chassis now.

    Here is my H3.

    I am also reworking a H3T that was beat up pretty bad when I found it and a 1/6 scale H2 with full interior that I haven't decided what to do with.

    I just picked up a set of axles and a transmission for a build. The kids and I are going to make a rc scaler with a 1/6 F150 body they have. We'll build a frame for it.

    Here's the body propped up over some 1.9 Flat Irons. We'll probably run 2.2 Irocs or Boggers on it.
