Question Axial SCX10 vs. RC4WD TF2

Hallo all,

I did use the search command first but could not find a 3D ref.to comparison between these 2 scalers...

I am pretty new to this category, long experience in RC but only less than one year in this, and the only rig I have so far is a Wraith (which I have been upgrading for long time now....)

I am already planning to build my own scaler and have already spent hours reading the many threads about both Axial SCX10 and as well TF2....

I love them both, the TF2 to me is the most realistic scale look rig I ever saw (out of the box), but the SCX10 seems to have better capability with the 4 links setup but it would need some extra work to make it as nice as the TF2 Hilux body (at least in my personal opinion and according to my taste...)

I can't really make up my mind and would like to open this question in order to collect some inputs, feedback, opinions here in the forum, I know many users have built them both so I guess there will be lot of people who have had experience with both of these two RC cars.....


I will really appreciate some experienced and as well personal opinions about my question ....

Many thanks in advance

Slim


PS: I hope this is the right section to post my question.. if not I apologise and kindly ask the moderators to move it into the correct section.

Well that's an option for sure! But what do you think about the TF2's mechanics compared to the Axial one?

You've done the research, which is more capable, which is more scale. Consider where and how you plan to drive. How scale you want to go, TF has a full interior out of the box. A 2-speed and full interior can be had in a SCX but it's gonna take modification. Do you want to build or buy scaleness?

In my opinion your talking about two completely different rigs. The tf2 is a scale Toyota and IMO is way more realistic and a closer 1:1 replica. It performs great for a "stock" vehicle.

Now the scx10 is a total different being. It drives way different and is a more capable "crawler". It really comes down to what you want in a scaler. Something that looks scale and drives scale or something that looks and performs like a crawler. Granted if the objective your after is best performance with scale looks. Get an scx10 and put the hilux body on it.

Thanks a lot guys! U r confirming my opinion, I think I like more the performances.... So I guess SCX10 would fit best my needs... and as well I can do some building work to make it more scale! Additionally I could also plan to buy them both but due to time restriction I must choose one! Thanks that helped!

if u are looking for a hilux that performs, def go with the scx10.

also, the dingo interior fits inside the hilux cab relatively easy. i did it on my project, and i think it looks great for a cheap and easy interior..

I plan on purchasing a TF2, selling the body and axles, and using the remainder combined with the k44's. Lj build.

Get a RTR honcho and your driving, buy the TF2 and your building.... while your driving.
Time will always be an issue for everyone - thats life. But you will always want more with which ever one you buy.

Damn if you do - Damn if you don't.....

1/10 T-Finder RTR Scale Truck

I've looked into this one. If you buy the tf2 body set, this could be nice for you. Though I do see hook ups (on rocks, getting stuck) some broken c-hubs (t-rex 60 plastic axles really suck in that area) and possibly a smoked servo.

A few things you could do to fix this problem:

Reinforced c-hubs:T-Rex 60 Reinforced Axle C

Servo:Hitec HS-5646WP Waterproof Digital Servo, 179 oz/in at .18 sec., HTS35646W

skid plate:Trail Finder Center Skid Plate

Plus! It's cheaper than both of those trucks! And it looks like it comes with steel punisher shafts, which will last you quite a while.


good luck!

I know what you mean but it helps if you can mix in some of that rc time with family time.
I involve my girls as often as I can. Some times they aren't interested but most of the time they enjoy it.

My family has supported me for years racing in 1/8 buggy gas and later in 1/10 touring electric, but now with the second child my wife became sort of allergic to RC word.... :( That's also a reason why I got in touch with this category I can get fun also w/o racing....even though also in here competition puts that special feeling of doing better than the others.....
