That body leaves alot to be desired. I'm not much into scale stuff but that thing looks like a UFO. I bet that rig will look great as a tuber. Some nice CF plates all around

On another note is this the only thing they are releasing? I was almost certain they would announce multiple rigs.

From their Axial countdown ad, I really thought they would be bringing something to race with?

Bleh! That body is ugly as sin. I too was hoping Axial had been hyping something other than a crawler. But I guess if your strictly into comp crawling and could care less what your rig looks like, just as long as it performs, then they will sell like hotcakes. And definitely appears with the list of goodies that it will be competitive.

Personally, I'll stick with my scaler, much more fun in my opinion.

I like the body, but then it's a comp body its about functionality. It's a very innovative rig, pity we have to wait 3 months for it.

they are under 300 bones in most stores that have them up for preorder

I have one on preorder at Tower (est late July). There $299.99 and with my super saver discount I'm getting it for around 240 shipped.

I have 2 scalers and a tuber. This will be my first MOA comp crawler.

I personally like the body. I guess cause it's different but agree it would be kick a$$ with that body and an exo cage.

If this is any thing like the AX-10 Axial will have a hit on their hands. It looks like a lot of R&D went into this and the factory support will be great ( it has been with all of the Axial stuff I have used in the past). I understand there might be a few of these run by factory guys ? at the Axial WCC next week. This is right in my backyard cant wait.

yeah I think heard they will be there, take a camera!



I dont know of a dual brushless esc, might have to run 2 esc's if your dead set on brushless (id be going that route if I had radio with enough channels)
