Default Axial RBX10 Ryft!

Anyone else got one?

Here’s mine









Ive also added reinforcement tubes to the axles



Plates to the trailing arms



I did run the truck a few times completely stock, but only on 3s, I had no issues really, but I did manage to bend a shock shaft...







I wasn’t a fan of the stock electrics in slightest, the servo was weak and was made even worse by the terrible servo saver, the motor and esc cogged like crazy and lacked any real control or finesse, the radio was normal Spektrum junk, I did sell it all and it paid for 2/3rd’s of the Castle combo and HH servo

Also I’ve refilled the diffs properly with 500k, added 10mm limiters under the shock pistons and gone 25/50wt with the shock oils

I have one but waiting for 3s battery to run. How did you fit longer motor in? Looks like motor hits trailing arm if go more than 2-3 mm longer than stock? What tubes did you put in axles? Thx.

Thx. How did you fit 74mm can? Did you file down trailing arm support or did smaller pinion raise motor and give you clearance?

I’m running a 13t pinion and it sits ok on the link mount, but rubs slightly on the rod end, so i shaved about .5mm off it

Great. Thank you.

For people wondering, battery tray dimensions are 140x40x40.

What batteries are people using? I'm having trouble finding lipos that fit battery tray. This is another fail on the vehicle...especially since it easily could have been more standard sized.

At that price it would be hard to say no, looks like horizon are restocking the sorted axles now anyway and everything else wrong with the truck is just standard rtr stuff
