The old links were 4 mm in diameter, the new ones are 6 mm. Not quite double the diameter but close.
Thanks! The old ones kinda look better to my eye, but I haven't seen the new nor the old tires in person yet.

6mm links should beef it up a lot, but thinner links look much better for scaleness. 6mm/.25" seems to be the new standard though.

Then WE both know a picture doesn’t lie, but WE can fool most!

I think it's highly unlikely that the linkage is twice the diameter, which can only mean that the perspective is NOT matching. In other words, either the SCX10.3 half of the photo IS closer to the camera, or the SCX10.3 half was slightly "zoomed in". With way, it is not a true side-by-side comparison. Sorry, Rich, but, unless the steering linkage is truly twice the diameter (and, if I'm wrong, I apologize), I've got to call out the "marketing hype" on that photo.

Here is a couple shots i took from my desk (when we were in the office lol)

Great comparison photos. I do like those smaller Nittos on the SCX10 II. Are they the exact same rubber compound as the new tires on the III?

The old R35 Nitto's were one of the best 1.9 tires Axial made in my opinion. Running a set on my VS4-10 Pro and my Ripper. The size is perfect in those applications. Which reminds me I need to order another set.

The new size seems to fill the JL flares well. Make sense the 1:1 JL can fit larger tires than the JK.

No, a little different being a bit softer. It was to close to the original compound to really change it but it does work better as it is produced by a different vendor for the SCX10 III

Sweet video comparison thanks StevesRC, also watched Matt's, and part of Josh's, need to watch the rest soon! Great side by side comparison pictures, thanks Rich! SCX10III just keeps looking better!

Jato Tim, where's yours in tracking now???

Interesting. I'm just not a huge fan of R35 compound anymore. It doesn't seem to work well on the moss and wet rocks here. But I love the look of that tire.

Thanks for the info! Softer is good.

FedEx says it only departed Champaign, IL this morning at 4:47 AM and it's in transit. Still says delivery for tomorrow, but I don't have high hopes.

Great truck.

Two options for this kit will make it better IMO, 4 link and servo on axle as option with proper parts on the box and also the option to swap the dig function to make a transfer case like 1/1 rigs, rear wheel drive o four wheel drive.

Err, even if you gave it a 2wd / 4wd transfer case, you would need a way to unlock the front end, with something like a selectable locker, unlocking hubs, etc. 2wd with a locked front differential would not be great.


Also, would a lot of people want an axle mounted servo? It does not seem to be a popular choice for a scale rig as far as I can tell.

Agreed. On the Capra it made sense. Here, not so much.

I moved this thread to the new, SCX10 III section. There's enough good info in this thread from Rich that I think that's the correct section for it.

Also, I remembered my Capra tracking not looking good either and that was delivered on time so fingers crossed I get my SCX10 III tomorrow! If not, I just hope it's here before the weekend so I have some quarantine entertainment.

If anybody is interested - her my builders- thread, just the second in Germany.

Unfortunately in german as it is too much work to translate it into english.
At the moment i am busy building this great rig - so no time for translation .

Maybe you will get lucky and the FedEx guy will walk up to your house and just slap the "Unable to deliver" tag on your door without trying to deliver the package. I actually watched the FedEx guy do this to me more than once.

I watched a FedEx truck pull up in front of my house in a torrential downpour. He sat there for a bout 5 minutes and then drove off. A few minutes later I tracked my package and it showed a delivery exception. The package showed up the next day.

Seems a bit premature to create a whole section for it. For all we know, this truck could just be a passing fad.
