scx10 restoration project !!
 
Hey, everyone! I had only been in the RC hobby for nearly 2 years, my scx10 has been trailing with me pretty much “weekly” =P . After the last huge crawling event , I can feel my rig is tired, so I decided I have to do a full restoration to it.

Since it’s a big and meaningful project, I wanted to use high quality parts for it. So I went for a run to my local hobby shops. However there are not many special parts around, I decided goin’ to online stores instead. I stumble across this brand “ Sentinel” on RCMart.

Haven’t heard of Sentinel before but their parts look pretty damn good.
So I gave it a try and picked up some Beadlock rims from them.

So they seems very realistic and scale in person and it feels sturdy in hand.

According to the spec, it's made from 7075-T6 type Aluminium. I don’t know much about metal but after I did some research, 7075-T6 is an aerospace grade metal! Damn, that mean it would last longer than my life!

They look Bada55 =P
