Default Axial Fest Badlands - What is "Axial Based"

So I'm trying to help a friend get situated and prepared for Badlands. He would like to build a rig specifically for AFBL; however, neither of us are sure of the definition of "Axial Based."

Is an SSD Trail King, VS410, etc... qualified to run at AFBL?

Thanks in advance.

The Trail King is an interesting quandary because it is not an Axial so it shouldn't be allowed but every part of a Trail King could individually be installed on a SCXII as an aftermarket part (which I believe there are no restrictions on). I'd say if you are trying to sneak a TK into Axialfest, at least change to a set of Axial frame rails.

Axial has a blog post that clearly defined what is "Axial based"

Link? I looked for this a while back but found many and most were old so I couldn't tell what was the current guidelines.

IIRC there was VS410s at AF last year. So I'm not sure those clear rules are so clear.

VS410 does fit though along with the TK, they both have a class as spelled out in that post

Both TK and VS410 fit just as last year looking at the new post for 2020 as posted above.

Edit: actually you'd have to use an "Axial Gear Format" transmission for the TK to fit, my bad.
