How much are you lookin to spend?
The Axial scorpion kit and X-Trail chassis is a great way to build a scale build"thumbsup" This is built with just that and only cost around 250-280 for kit and chassis.

After all electronics and goodies the fj runs in the 500-600 range. or another alternative is to go with the Hilux or the F-350 Highlift

They are perfect scale trucks but they are not much of a crawler by no means (stock anyway). they do however make great trail trucks."thumbsup"

mmm..
 
mmm...ok i was hoping to find one that would be good for both

Either find one or build one, building them from scratch is usually more expensive. ;-)

ug
 
mmm... are there any kits

Ty@Tekin 04-14-2008 05:53 PM

Ya, the Tamiya CR-01 FJ40 is the only kit that is a scaler, the Hi-lifts are a bit different in design.

Your best bet would be to buy an AX-10, get the TCS XTrail chassis and slap a nice body on it like the HPI Bronco or Rubicon.

ak_rider 04-15-2008 10:52 AM

cool
 
ok sweet i think im going to go with the X trail chassies"thumbsup"

sorry to jock the thread... but.

just ordered TCS X-Trail Scale Chassis for the Axial AX10 Scorpion but was wondering if my rig with this chassis would be more a 1.9 or a 2.2...


and would scale shocks work with this or would it be best to stick with similar shocks.

The chassis will work with both 1.9's and 2.2's and scale shocks could work as long as they are the correct length.

ive got pretty much everything to get you set up. ive got tlts axles, pede tranny, maxx shocks, 2.2 axial beadlocks and g-hawgs, 1.9 stock cars, k5 body, bunch of hardware. pm me if interested.

The x trail chassis is an easy build, and you will like the results. Works well for trail and climbing."thumbsup"
