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.
New from Xray for the X10’22 are these super-smooth, hardened steel 4mm kingpins that provide the foundation for the tweak free front suspension. The kingpins have a strong design with a 1.0° camber angle machined into the kingpin for precise suspension geometry. Optional 1.5° and 2.0° camber king-pins are available to adjust the camber in fixed steps. Sold as a pair.
Ruddog’s 35mm aluminium HV high speed cooling fan RP-0258 closes the gap between traditional 30 mm and 40 mm fans. Providing a good compromise between air flow and a low centre of gravity, it is the perfect choice for applications with a focus on overall performance with only a small space available, for example 1/10th scale touring cars and 4WD buggies. The aluminium housing shares the rounded and countersunk design with the 30 mm and 40 mm fans RP-254 and RP-255 for a long lifetime and small installation dimensions.
Surpass Hobby have released their new Rocket RC supersonic 380 sensored brushless motor. Compatible with all brands ESC, it is a standard 380 size motor and is great for upgrading 1/12 and 1/14 cars such as those from LC Racing and is available in 8.5T, 10.5T, 13.5T & 17.5T versions. The unique can design allows better heat dissipation and is made of high-strength 7075 imported aluminium alloy material with the motor only weighing ~96g. The internal resistance of the American copper wire winding is very low, while the powerful magnets and high grade rotor material provides plenty of power. The Japanese made NSK bearing complete the package making for a very smooth operation.
