Default Axial SMT10 Monster Truck

Official now, Axial has just done it again by providing us with another new truck. This time it is based on the famous Monster Jam Grave Digger Truck. Axial just knows how to take away our money and that's why we love it.

Clod tires need to be the first upgrade.

I like it.

I'm more excited about 12mm monster truck wheels.

X2 too bad they aren't bead locks. Maybe if it takes off the aftermarket will produce them.

maybe they put those tiny tires to avoid more breakage on the rest of the car ?

Finally! Just wish they would've came out with this before I bought my used Redcat Ground Pounder project. Thought I could get away with not having to custom fab a solid axle MT but the Redcat axles and trans are pretty bad. It's been on the back burner waiting for me to get some AR60's and an Axial trans for it but I think I'll just dump it and take the easy way out with one of these.

I think they should have include the link plates for the lower links. Axial's plastic is so soft.

I would agree that the clod wheels and tires would look better but would like to add that the Proline Brawler setup would look extremely bad to the bone on this one. jesus christ virgin mary holy father, there goes the budget.

To me, it looks plasticky and cheap. The tires are too small, and the wheels are ugly.

I do like the exhausts sticking out from under the body.

The grave digger setup looks pretty cool and all but those web line things in the wheels I'm not fond of. Totally ruins the look of the wheel. The headers would look better in black, and the tires fall short of looking awesome.

Pretty much same issues everyone else has lol

Rest of it looks great for a scale, RTR 1/10 monster. I hope they release some other trucks too. I'd be all over a Metal Mulisha truck!!!

This is what should have been done with the Monster Jam trucks in the first place. Solid axle FTW! I will be looking for the kit version.
