Default The Vanquish Ripper

This year at AxialFest, Vanquish showed off what's possible with the Axial chassis by releasing their prototype truck, which I've dubbed "The Ripper". It's a tube chassis truck on the Axial SCX10II frame rails, machined completely from block aluminum. Yes, the tubes, the panels, everything.






It's an amazing feat of engineering and shows what Vanquish is capable of. Not only does it look incredible, it performs just as well. Harley, Jim and Casey Currie put them through their paces and it's truly amazing to watch. They did not spare the prototypes and beat on them hard. There's no plan right now to produce it on a large scale, but if there's enough interest, they may do it.

Here's a video I was honored to put together:



EDIT: They just put a pre-order up on their site.

I don't think I'll be getting that by the boss. But still.. Vanquish built RC.. so nice the price isn't terrible really considering its custom.

Yes but you will need another 1500k to finish up that project to get it run

No axles, no frame, no electronics, wheels, tires..............

But nice

And we wonder why no new folks getting in RC .

Reminds me of when Billet hit the MC industry.

Wait a second. $1,900 and a "discount" on the missing parts? You could build a complete Matzilla rig for $1,900! What am I missing?

A fool and their money are soon parted.

Someone will buy it and all will instantly recognize that they had no building skills and simply tried to buy street cred.

I bought this for 1900. Holds 3 trucks and tools in the trunk, not to mention ice cold a/c

Now I will preface that these things are pretty badass, BUT shouldn't the product pictures actually show the things included? No point in showing 150 pics of the fully built rigs if I've yet to actually see a picture of the bare chassis, panels, and parts all laid out to see what actually makes up this kit.

What you need to complete a roller (not included):

SCX10-2 Chassis rails
SCX10-2 RTR skid plate (or original SCX10 skid plate)
SCX10 Bumper that bolts in between the frame rails (not to the outside) and is under 3.75in wide
SCX10 Rear chassis crossmember
Axial 3-gear transmission (complete with slipper and spur gear assembly)
Axial Bomber Interior
Axial Yeti Fuel Cell
Axial EXO radiator
Vanquish Products SCX10-2 F9 front axle with servo on axle mount
SCX10-2 knuckles and kingpin bushings
SCX10-2 rear axle of either style (Currie RockJock or F9)
SCX10-2 axle internals (gears, shafts, lockers, hexes, etc)
SCX10 driveshafts (this truck has a wheelbase slightly longer than the standard 12.3in but most SCX10 compatible driveshafts should work without an issue)
5 - Vanquish 1.9 wheels with 475 hubs (or 350 hubs if using the KMC XD Center Cap)
5 - Tires and foams (max tire size of 4.75in, when using the maximum tire size you will experience some rubbing still)
90mm scale style shocks (up to a 4in shock will work but larger bore shocks may have clearance issues with the rear sway bar)
Bearings and hardware


If I were to build one of these, I'd want nice parts to complement the parts from the Ripper kit. This could easily be in the $3-4k range for a complete rig. It's definitely not for everyone.

If you're on Facebook, check Harley's page. He's been posting the build up on these since the start. It's pretty incredible and ridiculous all in one. I see the amount of machine hours in these but I'm not looking to be $1900 lighter.

Right, and I suppose the only people that would want a kit like this don't really care, but I figure the product page would at least have a picture like this:
