1/10 SCX10 II Raw Builders Kit

From Horizon Hobby

Start with your favorite scale trail chassis — the Axial® SCX10™ II. Top it off with electronics and your choice of body, tires, and wheels. Now you’ve got a custom rig with proven performance and a look that’s all yours: the Axial SCX10 II Raw Builder’s Kit!

In 2008 Axial introduced its first SCX10 as a builder’s kit that avoided the technical hurdles of scratch-building. Scale trail enthusiasts could focus their attention on other things, like visually personalizing their rig. The SCX10 chassis platform proved to be a highly effective driving machine. Standout features included an all-metal twin C-channel frame, solid transmission, and axles with realism and capabilities to match.

With the SCX10 II, Axial kept the essence of the SCX10 and its metal frame rail chassis, but added scale AR44™ high pinion axles, a chassis-mounted servo, redesigned transmission, front mounted battery tray, all aluminum suspension links, suspension designed for nearly zero bump steer, and more.

These are some of the features that make the SCX10 II optimized for performance. Now, with the Raw Builder’s Kit version, you can drive a machine that’s as personal as it is capable!

AR44 Single Piece Axles

  • Single piece axle housing for strength.
  • Small pumpkin for increased clearance and scale realism.
  • Optimized gear ratio (3.75) for reduced torque twist.
  • High pinion gears for added ground clearance, better driveshaft angles, and increased durability.

AX10 Transmission

  • Scale looks on the outside — strong, all-metal Axial® gears on the inside!
  • Mimics a real transmission with bell housing, oil pan, and 4X4 transfer case.
  • 56T spur gear and 15T pinion — 32-pitch for durability.
  • Final drive ratio (FDR) 40.44 with a range from 33.69 - 54.15.
  • Efficient driveline with improved driveshaft angles to reduce stress on moving parts.
  • Includes a full set of ball bearings.

R44 Universal Axle Set

  • Universal joint axles allow up to 45 degrees of steering and provide smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain.
  • Hardened steel construction.
  • All Aluminum Suspension Links
  • All links are metal, including the steering.
  • 4-Link rear suspension geometry reduces axle steer and torque twist.
  • Custom tapered center – flared ends design.
  • Large M4 rod ends.
  • Gray anodized aluminum.

CMS (Chassis Mounted Servo)

  • Servo is moved from the top of the axle onto the chassis, just as a full-size truck's steering box is located on the frame.
  • Enhances scale looks with proper suspension geometry.

Has anyone gotten this kit yet?? I am looking at crawlers in the $200ish price range that are RTR, but as I have extra tires, servos, motors, etc, this might be an alternative.

Any thoughts on that guys?? Compared to a RedCat Gen7, an ExceedRC crawler, etc that is RTR what would I be better off doing?

I picked up this kit for my wife, largely for the reasons you posted. My wife wanted a custom body if she was going to enjoy doing driving with me and our son, and I already had all the extras except an extra ESC, which is cheap. The build has been pleasant and the SCX10 ii chassis is very reliable. One major disappointment was that the transmission is not the same as the full kit, so you can't drop a 2 speed conversion into it. Had I known this from the beginning, I would have probably gone a different route. That aside, I'm happy with this because it gives all of the parts for all three major wheelbase options. Her build is going to require the short wheelbase, but it can be swapped for a long wheelbase later with no additional purchases. I can't compare it to the other brands you listed, though, as I've never driven those.

A friend and I both bought our first ever rock crawlers last month, he bought the SCX10.2 and I bought a Gmade Sawback (he had more money). Both kits are pretty good quality but the scx has a better turning circle and a fraction more movement in the chassis, I like the Sawback though as it's unique looking.

We've both started buying useless bling for the cars...

Cool! It is surprising about the transmission...wonder why they did that?

Only issue I've really seen about the kit is it uses plastic body shocks...how do those look?

Sweet! The Sawback looks really nice, is that the open cockpit one?

As far as useless bling, that's half the fun I've seen guys on FB with well over $1k in a 1/10 scaler crawler. Can't imagine that much money in one rig!!

Yeah my friend has easily spent over a grand on his SCX10.2. All the alloy upgrades and extras even though he rarely drives it and these things are all pretty tough out of the box and generally only potter along at walking speed.

I scored the open cockpit Sawback, goes well just needs some bigger wheels.

Yeah it's crazy the money people put into something that goes like 10 mph

The Sawback looks awesome, I like those wheels/tires you have on there. Are they stock? If so then they look pretty scale, if not then good choice!

I don't believe the Sawbacks are as popular over here in the US; don't see much about them compared to the Axials. It looks really cool though, my GI Joes would love the open cockpit
