Default Fxc24 any good?

I may have missed it, but are fcx24 any good? I'm not much for the high speed stuff, my trx4 is locked in low speed. But I like the little crawlers.
I already ordered one. So I'm committed, just curious what everybody else thought.

See here:

New FMS 1/24 power wagon

The scale detail is impressive, and the combination of portal axles and a 2-speed transmission really makes the performance stand out.

Treal already makes a ton of upgrades - over $225 worth!

Best fun Ive had OOB only complaint is how the body clips on. Its awkward.

Easy paint detailing


Hang up and Drive

It's actually 1/18 scale or close to it. The cab matches the dimensions of the FMS Atlas 6x6 which is advertised as 1/18.

Lots of fans of the FCX24 though.

Have heard those complaints about the body attachment and battery access, which in itself is odd because FMS-Rochobby usually has the battery under an opening hood which they have abandoned for this model.
I'd build a bed/cargo area and a battery box disguised as a fuel tank and put it behind the cab, maybe.

I like the idea of a bit more speed but also capable of crawling well. This one seems to check both boxes.

The only thing I would like to see is if it is possible to put a more recent pickup truck body on it. Perhaps a bit challenging due to the design but have yet seen anything like that at this point.

Just take the K10 and transplant the FCX axles and 2-speed tranny to it. Pretty sure that is feasible.

The FCX axles and motor/gearbox are available as spare parts from FairRC and FMShobby and no doubt others. Best to take advantage of Labor Day sales.. .

VERY GOOD TRUCK!!! Quality all around. The body may be a bit larger than some but this truck and it’s portals etc is absolutely 1/24 scale.

axles almost bolt right up, just need a few extra stock parts to make it work. i already put a set on my fj cruiser. mogrich is next on the list

transmission may be a little harder as the mount for the fcx one is kind of odd
