"I want it to be dig"


No not dig its a done deal for a long time.
What i would like to see are VOD Variable OverDrive 10 % - 30 %

Thats what this guy would do if he was launching something new,,,, actually do something new.

I am on board with the portals, have to when i run C1 tiers as almost the only guy here.

Though asking people driving the element with 11% OD, they cant tell if its actually better, dont know if they are stupid or OD just dont shine as much on the dirt which are mainly what we Danes drive on.

And TBH if the front axle spin faster, but cant get any grip in the dirt, well then i assume it will not pull you up and over more easy, so maybe only work best on descents for us Danes.

Those who can’t tell OD difference, just not observing closely enough, 10-20% adjustable is awesome and very beneficial in dirt and rock.

If they can use a good quality plastic rather than the soft black cheese Axial traditionally uses, it would be a start. Just seeing those portals and knowing of the terrible Axial plastics I wouldn't count on time lasting if they don't change it up. Hopefully theyve gone to the same factory where they make TLR kits.

This kit interests me. I put together many TLR kits over the years. Some of the best Plastics I've come acrossed. If they were to use that plastic, it would be a good truck, buggy, whatever it's going to be.

It seems like it could be a pretty damn cool looking truck, but unless Axial seriously ups the quality, I dont plan on buying.

The Capra will feature the same materials found on the TLR 8ight platform. Tolerances will be much tighter than they have in the past and nothing like previous materials used by Axial.

Yes and no...we are working on that transition but it will take a little time. The Capra is being produced at a different factory from the SCX10-II so that's why this is an easier transition.

Very heartening news!

My Team Losi XXX-T was the best-performing R/C I ever had back in the day...

It'll be interesting to see because there's no reason Axial couldn't release sturdy RTRs out of the box. Plus you can finally win Jato back over with non-spaghetti plastics.

This is a fantastic bit of information and I can't wait for the full release.

Based on the abuse my 8ight-T went through, the Capra should last roughly forever if I'm not launching it 15 ft into the air at 40-50 mph on a regular basis.

The old saying, “competition breeds excellence” is true.

Axial had to raise the bar, or fade into obscurity.

Good to hear, as the last several Axial release where lack luster to say the least.

Looking forward to owning an Axial again. 👍🏼
