The rc4wd Iroks fit the scale and size requirements you want. I've ran them for a good while now, they perform great. I also have a set of rc4wd flashpoints that do amazing. I've been really impressed at what I can tackle with such a small tire.

Thanks for the feedback - I'll see what I decide to do.

Went to the lake this weekend and drove the crap out of it. Took a few tumbles, gave it a few scratches and ended up snapping the grill out of place. Bad design from the factory anyway, four screws won't keep it there for long. Thank god for superglue

Sorry for the lack of pictures, Photobucket hasn't been working and I also completely forgot to take any...

How do you like this rig? Trying to decide between this and the ascender

I love it. It's done everything I want it to do... That said, it's a little slow on a 35T motor (my fault on choosing it). If you want to do some trailing as well as crawling, get a higher-turn motor.

Comparing the II to the Ascender, they're quite close. They both have a 2-speed trans (SCX10-II RTR has older trans, not 2-speed), CMS with panhard bar, huge body, huge tires, etc... You would have a great time with both rigs, but I chose the II because I liked the body better and had more familiarity with Axial. Good luck choosing!

The K10 Truggy has a shorter wheelbase, as well as the bronco. The K5 Blazer is longer than them but shorter than the II, if that helps at all

Dang didn't realize the truggy was shorter. So the scx10-2 is bigger than the blazer?

The Blazer and Cherokee (SCX10-II) are roughly the same size, and there both pretty huge, bigger than both the Truggy and bronco.

Managed to get one more picture until Photobucket sh#t itself again. It's much dirtier now, but at least I have one pic.



I should have some parts coming in a couple weeks. It's been bone stock for too long...

Got my parts in, but realized I wasn't done (had to order up some hex hubs-didn't realize RC4WD's wagons came with pin drive).

Now that I see Duratrax' Deep Woods tires in person, the compound is weird and the foams are crap. If I'm gonna stick with these, changes are going to be made. So what CI foams are best for these / the right size?

New wheels and tires finally came in (although I accidentally only bought 1 pack - pics with both sets of tires on Monday)! Mounted them backwards because I like the deep dish look. Offset isn't that bad:

Interested to see how those perform, they look good!

Got the rest of my order today...



These Deep Woods were a pleasant surprise. Honestly, for sixteen bucks a pair (plus 10 for a pair of foams) I thought these were going to be crappy. They did just as well as the stock KO2s and were a bit better in looser dirt. Never tested them with their stock foams, but I'm glad I didn't because the CI foams worked like a charm.

Also got a battery for my 3Racing winch... It works fine when not connected to the receiver, but when I try to set the 3 positions on my 3rd channel, it only goes in and out without stopping and with a huge delay from when I press the (3rd channel) button. Any ideas?

For your bubbly window sticker problem, don't feel bad...I used a smartphone screen protector rubber installer and still took me two hours to have it mostly bubble free.

If you find a persistent bubble, pop it with the tip of a sharp knife, and then just work the air out. Nice build bud!

Better yet, before you apply that decal, use a hobby knife to cut away the clear portion!

I popped a few big ones... Stickers helped with the rearmost windows.

I'll use your guys' advice if I choose to get another body...

this helped me a lot with the stickers: get a spray bottle with water, and add a few drops of dishwashing soap. spray on both the body, and the back of the sticker. This way you can move around the sticker after you've applied it, and then use a cloth/card to push out air bubbles/water. Works like a charm.

Yes, this is how I did it and it worked great. Just like installing window tint on a car.

Got in a good run today. I've got a really nice creek going through the woods, and I tried to explore more of it - while remembering that I have metal wheels now. How susceptible to rust are these RC4WD Wagons?
