Default Scorpion AX10 ARTR

SO my buddy has one and liked it so i found one on ebay that was brand new in the box and have to gather all the electrics but i cant beleive that there isnt a thread that is up to date about it...I kno its older but you can still get them and PLENTY of parts support so its on the way just waiting for it to get here but wanted to get some insight from others as some good upgrades to do....

It has the alum links as its the ARTR and assembled in the box and i have the proline chassis extension kit, vertical body mount, and Silverado HD body so i might use that stuff but wanted to see what everyone does for upgrades without getting crazy as its new so im just starting out and want to do some basic upgrades before going hard core since i will NOT be doing competitions

Rear axle lockouts are a must. Aluminum c hubs and knuckles are a good thing. I would suggest running it first and see if you like it and replace/upgrade as needed.

Good looking truck! No suggestions on upgrades if you just plan on cruising, they are quite good out of the box. Agree with the above poster that it's an "upgrade at breakage" type rig.

well ive seen some with the front lower links being a high clearance like the rear so wanted to kno about that and similar small things like that or even more that would help with toying around

just like the center plate underneath....i would think the alum would slide better but i see/hear people talking about the delrin version as an upgrade and not the alum

id go with either the castle sidewinder v3 or the mamba monsetr 2 both are waterproof. both will run brushed and brushless but the mamba monster will also run a sensored motor where as the sidewinder wont

as low as you can get. but rember the v3 doesnt run a sensor based motor it runs brushed or sensorless motors only. i run a 35t brushed motor in my honcho with the v3 on a 2s lipo and i get decent wheel speed and torque with the stock gearing
