Default ScoJac builds a Bomber

Hello Bombers, I just purchased my first Axial and I am looking forward to building and modding this one also.
I stumbled onto an eBay Fathers day 20% off site wide sale.....soooo
I just had to grab one as well as some goodies to go along with it.

The kit actually went to gather pretty well

So far this is what I have

RR10 Bomber kit
RTR body panels from an eBay part out
Hobbywing wp1080 esc
Traxxas Titan 21t
Savox 1230
Vanquish AR60 trusses
Vanquish servo mount
Vanquish servo clamps
Incision motor mount
Incision motor mount cam
Tactic TTX300
Hyperion 3s 50c 5000mAh

When changing out the battery connector to a XT90 I also added in a length of 18 gauge wire with a XT30 connector for some lighting later on.

The next thing I plan on getting is either .475 or .600 Vanquish SLW hubs to widen the track width a wee bit.
Your thoughts or recommendations on which size to get ?

A must have is some metal rod end pivot balls... come on Axial, it's about time you stop including the plastic ones !

Vanquish Stage 1 Kit.

Incision overdrive drive gears up front and maybe the spools.





Anyways thats enough, here are a couple pics.

Great collection of upgrades, ScoJac!

Should beef it up nicely...

Speaking of beef...

Beef-tubes would be a crowning touch to finalize toughening up the axle area, bringing just a touch of extra weight.

Along with the beef tubes, I highly recommend the vanquish knuckle weights if you intend to crawl

I like most Vanquish products, but those require grinding away some material to fit correctly... or so multiple reviewers on this forum have reported.

That may be worth the work for some people, but it does bear mentioning...

It's been out of stock for so long that i actually hope it's being redesigned...

But right now i would suggest beef patties SLW weights instead.

I'm running TSS Brass Knuckles- 1.6 oz each versus VP Knuckles- 0.3 oz each.
Very well made and no grinding of materials.

Thanks for all the comments and recommendations


I purchased some RTR body panels off eBay and those are now on. I'm leaving the clear panels clear for now till I can decide if I want to go simple or do an elaborate paint scheme ?
I'll have to pick up some paint once I decide what color to do the drivers, hopefully I'll have time to paint them this week (another... 60 hour work week )

I'll be picking up some beef tubes and was also thinking about the stainless steel brake rotor patties from VP. I'm not overly concerned on the rotational mass because this will be used mainly for crawling and not really for bashing.

Been reading some of the AMAZING build threads in this section, been gathering ideas and making a list of things I want to do.

I have now had a chance to run this in the kitchen and living room , setting and playing with the Hobbywing 1080 and trying different settings.

The Hyperion 3s 5000mAh 50c battery I picked up fits perfectly, not a mm to spare either. (135 x 42 x 29mm) It came with no connector so I added a XT90.

Anywho, I'll post up more info and pics as I can and progress with the build as with any upgrades.



A few snaps...

Both of my current and fresh builds, The other one is my TRX4 Kit with spooled axles and single speed trans conversion sporting a '73 Bronco body from Proline.

Until I get the clamping King spring cups, I stripped out the wire from some baggie twist ties and secured the cups to the springs.

Looking great, as is that TRX-4!

Man, that is some sweet and subtle paint on the Bronco body - I usually find that body kinda boring - but not with those simple graphics!
