After HPI announced their kit, Axial responds with a similar kit, but 50$ cheaper

Mind blown! why would they put the RTR one piece housings in a "builders kit" with the plastic shocks and plastic links. They should have different versions available.

$50 cheaper, but less quality. This Axial builder's chassis is essentially a Deadbolt with the cheap axles, transmission and plastic, garbage shocks. The Venture's aluminum shocks are worth the $50 price premium.

The links aren't plastic.
Plus Icon shocks aren't much of an upgrade IMO anyways. Id rather save the $50 and buy trx4 shocks

For ~$200, this is better starting point for me than the regular XJ kit. I want to start with the frame, etc. Swap out to SSD Pro Axles, the GCM scale trans kit, throw on the Proline '66 C10 body with the new KM3 4.19" tires to build up a rig for my dad to play with.

OK it's a Deadbolt with Universal's, metal trans gears, metal links and spare links. The plastic balls are gone as well, right?

If you plan to resell the stock axles and transmission I can see this being an option

Looks like you give up the BFG All Terrains, XJ body, XJ bumpers, Aluminium shock bodies, and SCX10.2 transmission---Saving you around $129

If you have no desire to run a 2 speed trans, xj body, and the all terrain tires---Worth it in my opinion--you get metal trans gears and updated chassis and axles--upgrade shocks later if you want

I would have bought this over the XJ kit and and used the parts from my original Honcho to complete the truck-- I have no plans to run a 2speed trans in the SCX platform so...

For 100$ more, as for a 90046 kit, I will get better shocks (at least looks better, lol), a good Jeep body shell, different Axles (good or bad?). But less links compared to this kit. Hard to decide though.

My Pop's who has essentially been mom and dad since I was 4 years old asked me this summer to make him an RC Crawler. He is 74 years old.... I made him basically a deadbolt by doing this. NOW Axial makes it... Damn... But I have his real life Jeep he handed me the key to when I graduated college, so I still win. I made a trail crawler so he and my 2 girls could goof around. I know this isn't comp crawler stuff. But it's very usable and brings more folks in. That's the point. "I think". We are a mish mash of trucks, leaky shocks that I keep up with. But I promise when we have dinner on Sunday, we really won't care. RC and real offroading help keep this Dad sane a little. And my "girl" that I married at 18, thinks our toys are "cool". Sometimes we over think it... I know I do. I got into RC a long time ago. And life got into the way. To me now, it's an
excuse to have 3 generations hanging out when we can't go 1:1 wheeling, hanging w folks I love. My kiddos are going a long ways away to both coasts soon. (I live in KS). Several months ago I would have hopped all over this. Sorry for the long post...I know, I know... I lurk here a lot to destress. I am always amazed about the talents you all have. I pick up nuggets I can do. SOME DAY, I hope to build my girl a crawler. When she says so I will. To me RC is stress relief, and I WISH, I could be the guy making weekly hi-lights on YOUTUBE. Who cares, I would buy this kit in a second... But over time... It's a little more than than what my girl would allow in the budget now sending two girls to college. It's more than my monthly electricity bill...

I have the original 10.2 XJ kit. It was my first crawler, and just didn't realize how much I would customize it. I liked the XJ body, but I've already swapped it out for various reasons. Same with the kit tires, shocks, and bumpers. Plus, I've never added the 2 speed mod, either.

I plan to sell/trade the kit stuff I know I won't use from this kit.

I think this kit with trx4 shocks and ssd axle housings will make for a nice setup.
