Not only did Brandon design this rig, he shot these photos while I was having fun driving all day! Thanks B!

And that steering throw looks far better than any Exo I've seen.

Bugger.... Not quite big enough for my wallpaper...
Yes, yes and select stretch to fit...resolution could be a little better though.

This is Brandon's baby... let's all show our appreciation and add one or two to the stable when they drop. I really like the cool little features engineered into the chassis. I have always pieced my rigs together, but this one I'll have to buy in the box. You did a fine job


Thank you

Doesn't the fact that one is spec'd with 1.9 and, and the other spec'd 2.2 and looks to be "built" with 2.2 durability in mind define it? I'm just trying to understand your question.


The TH didn't seem to hold up at the 1.9 level, whereas this car honestly looks tough, and has some very beefy looking key points. No buyers guide needed for my decision. Axial has both feet in the water.

The real question is where does one go to buy those skinny jeans and that little boys pink shirt? That's a lot of sass for one picture...

What??? Do you have any idea how long it takes to add the "hi-res" links to every image?

Oh, I thought that was implied. Lets just say it's as light as the skinny jean wearing baby-T flaunting Brandon @ Axial.

Did the rear sway system seem functional or is it just for the "scale" factor?

I'd think it has to be functional and required with so much rear travel to be had.

It looks like it has some sort of suspension limiting built in as well. In the pictures it's fully drooped out and it looks like you can see "stops" built in on the back side of the tie rods and arms. The shocks hopefully limit the suspension first, otherwise it may be an interesting durability test.

I dig the chassis, it looks stealth fighter-like!
