Axial UTB18 Capra 1:18 4WD Unlimited Trail Buggy

Axial’s popular Capra has an all-new member of the family that comes in a compact 1:18-scale size but packs a big punch – the UTB18 Capra 4WD Unlimited Trail Buggy. Fully equipped and ready-to-run, it is similar in design to the popular 1/10 scale Capra 1.9 4WD Unlimited Trail Buggy and has a scaled-down Capra tube chassis. Like the larger trail buggy, the UTB18 Capra also has portal axles. They give the UTB18 Capra extra ground clearance for manoeuvring. Add in its axle-mounted, low profile 1/10 scale servo for quick, strong steering and the durable 4-link suspension system, and the UTB18 Capra is ready to prove that size has nothing to do with crawling performance. Officially licensed Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires mounted to officially licensed Raceline Monster wheels give it the grip to conquer rocky trails, rough dirt tracks, and most other off-road surfaces. Body panels with licensed livery, helmeted driver and passenger figures, LED lights and more combine for realistic scale looks to match its capabilities on the trails. The UTB18 comes with high-quality electronics, a Spektrum SLT2 radio, LiPo battery, and Dynamite USB charger.

Axial Capra 1.9 4WS Currie Unlimited trail buggy RTR

The Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy is now available in a new version that gives crawling enthusiasts an even more realistic and effective way to manoeuvre. Out of the box, the ready-to-run Capra 1.9 4WS Unlimited Trail Buggy features front and rear steer to make it super capable on the rocks. Axial engineers have installed steer axles at both ends for the enhanced manoeuvrability of 4-wheel steering. Using the third channel button of the included Spektrum DX3 transmitter, you can steer the rear axle from 0 (straight) to 50% or 100%, left and right, to position the tires perfectly for conquering obstacles. The transmission also includes an optional Dig setup that’s disabled from the factory (and requires upgrading to a 4-channel radio and micro servo for use). To have Dig and rear steering capabilities, remove the spacer from inside the transmission and install your micro servo. With the flick of a transmitter button, you can now activate Dig and lock the rear drive axle. That allows you to pull the buggy around by the front end while holding the rear in place. The new Capra 1.9 4WS is available in two new colour schemes, the Currie and the Nitto.

Axial SCX6 Jeep JLU Wrangler 4wd RTR

At 1/6 scale, the new ready-to-run SCX6 Jeep JLU Wrangler 4wd from Axial brings a whole new dimension to RC crawling. Whether you’re a fan of full-size Jeep vehicles, rock crawling, large-scale models, or all of the above, you’ll be thrilled by the amount of realistic detail and high-performance functionality found here. Based on the proven SCX10 III, the SCX6 chassis might be considered its big brother. It’s engineered for extreme durability and performance with AR90 axles while for optimal handling, the chassis has a three-link Panhard front and four-link rear suspension setup. The transmission offers high and low gears out of the box, with a Spektrum S614 Metal-Gear Servo included and installed for the two-speed linkage. Massive, 7” tall BFGoodrich KM3 tires provide excellent grip and ground clearance for dirt, rocks and all other off-road surfaces. They’re mounted on licensed Black Rhino ‘Primm’ injection-moulded, 3-piece beadlock wheels so that the tires can be removed and replaced easily without gluing.

JConcepts Axial SCX24 bodies

JConcepts have released a trio of new bodyshells for the Axial SCX24 starting with this 1970’s Chevy K10. The 1970 shell is powerful, and the square body shape is a shout-out to simpler times when a hard day’s work was a bedful of goodness. For the 1970, a lot of the glamour rested in the front grille and headlight package as well as the layered and sculpted rear tail gate and taillight section. These details are found on the included decal sheet along with many emblems and trim packages to complete your body in several popular looks from that generation. A chiseled front-end is gently swept back from the centre. Fenders wells are round with raised edging making them ideal for several different 1/24th scale tires on the market.

Axial 1/10 scale RBX10 Ryft 4wd rock bouncer

Axial introduces another first with the 1/10 scale RBX10 Ryft 4wd, a kit that allows intermediate level RC drivers to experience the thrills of rock bouncer off-road action. Full-size rock bouncers refuse to stop, or even back down on the throttle, when facing steep climbs and massive rocks. So does the RBX10 Ryft 4wd. This ground-up new Axial vehicle handles lots of abuse and loads of power. It’s robust, custom tube chassis is engineered from a high-strength composite plastic that withstands the hard knocks of RC off-roading, even while moving at high speeds over difficult off-road terrain. Both the front and rear axles boast a durable one-piece, moulded plastic, solid axle design and realistic metal differential covers. Officially licensed Interco TSL Super Swamper Bogger tires on Raceline Monster wheels do their part to tame wild tracks, aided by a 4-link suspension and adjustable, long travel front and rear oil shocks. These features, plus a full-time 4WD transmission, make the RBX10 Ryft an exciting vehicle to take on tough challenges at full throttle. The kit comes with a clear body for finishing in your favourite colours, plus decals and realistic interior details.
