Agile, affordable, and upgradeable
The ready-to-run Axial® SCX10™ II Deadbolt™ 4WD is a budget-friendly, highly capable, and easily upgradeable RC rock crawler that's perfectly suited for both experienced adventurers and hobby newcomers. It combines rugged scale looks with the exceptional handling of the trail-ready SCX10 II chassis, in a 12" short wheelbase setup that's agile enough to take on twisty trails.
The SCX10 II remains one of the best 1/10 scale rock crawler chassis ever designed. This high-strength, C-channel chassis is made of durable steel with cross braces for reinforcement and rigidity. The contoured skid plate significantly reduces hang-ups, and the simplified design makes maintenance quick and easy.
Highly adaptable, the SCX10 II Deadbolt 4WD also features an adjustable wheelbase, adjustable body mount, adjustable bumper mounts with swaybar mounting points, and mounting points for an optional 2-speed transmission and servo winch. The included LCX AX10™ transmission, with a three gear layout, heavy-duty slipper, sealed gear cover, and all-metal gears, accepts a wide range of gearing options. Its overall ratio can be adjusted using different pinion and spur gear choices for super high speed or competition-level crawling speed.
Just as a full-size truck has its steering box located on the frame, Axial® places the Deadbolt's adjustable servo mount on the SCX10 II chassis frame and allows a wide range of servos to be used. Universal joint axles permit up to 45° of steering and provide an efficient, high-performance drivetrain. The single-piece AR44™ front and rear axles feature a molded truss for extreme durability. The pinion gear is 6mm above center for higher ground clearance and improved driveshaft angles. Metal dog bones and helical cut internal gears are standard equipment, and the drivetrain includes full, high-quality ball bearings.
The oil-filled shocks, with threaded bodies and a single coilover spring, can be tuned to meet the dampening demands of any trail. Realistic shock hoops with multiple mounting positions let you adjust the suspension for maximum performance. S30 compound, 4.7" x 1.9" wide Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires on METHOD 307 Hole wheels provide ample ground clearance for off-road trails and have a large block tread pattern for excellent bite in all terrain.
With a realistic driver figure and exterior cage complete with light bar (LED lights sold separately), the Axial® SCX10 II Deadbolt 4WD delivers scale excitement and class-leading performance in a convenient, ready-to-run package. Nearly all electronics, including a Spektrum™ SLT2 2.4GHz radio system, motor, and ESC, are supplied and installed. Just add your choice of batteries and charger and start your adventure!
