Hi all,

Just got a pre-order email from Tower re the RTR SCX10 II which piqued my interest.

Has anyone had a chance to have a decent look through and compare what is included and what is not?

On initial inspection I noted the following differences:
* Inclusion of RTR electronics - Tactic radio gear and servo, 35T motor (interesting they went away from the 27T of the original SCX RTR's), AE-5 ESC
* Cut & painted body, same as the first release SCX10 II but without roof racks (perhaps included in the box?)
* Steel suspension / steering links, not alloy, and thinner?
* Standard plastic shocks vs the alloy icon ones
* The biggest surprise (I had to do a couple of double takes and still would like someone more knowledgeable to double check) was what looks to be the original SCX gearbox / transmission instead of the newer SCX10 II style one. A cheaper alternative for the RTR or did they listen to the negative feedback of the newer design??? Very interested to hear people's opinions here.

Did I miss anything?

Cheers,
Crouch

@RTR version: Yup, Axial's site says AX10 transmission (32P), [Mr Burns] Iiiiinnteresting! [/Mr Burns] I wonder if the huge trans case in the kit version is a dead end, or will Axial still be releasing a two speed upgrade kit (anyone know?)?

But the bodyshell, OMG! Looks like they sprayed the primer on and then forgot to put any color on it!

Dead end? Thats crazy talk. Axial will release the 2 speed setup in a year or so after another company has already made one.

IMO two speed transmissions in a crawler are a waste of money anyway. A good brushless setup will get you the crawling ability you want and tons of wheel speed. Plus its less weight, less crap to break/wear out, and less slop in the drivetrain.

I kinda like the color. At least it isnt covered with cheesy graphics.

Pretty much mounts the same. There aren't any link mounts on it and it's a little bit shorter front to back.

Sorry, autocorrect fail, I meant is it the same transmission as the original SCX10?

If it's shorter front-to-back, I'd wager it's different.

I was referring to the skid. The skid is shorter than the scx10 skid. I used one on an Axial powered R1 because of that. It does have the same tranny mount holes as the scx10 tranny.

I make a 10.2 Currie axle servo mount that has been tested for about a year now and it's ready for sale.

I'll try to get some pic posted shortly.
