Hey
Looking at buying an rc crawler and was wondering if anyone has a Losi mini-rock crawler 1/18 scale, or the ax10 scorpion that trails gear sells? Does anyone know of any other crawlers for the same price? they both go for around $25o bucks
any input on what to buy for that price would be great
thanks

i recently looked into it and it seemed the axial ax10 is the best one for the buck.

The AX10 is very popular and I think it's a good one but just make sure you price out everything you need. I think the kit come without a motor and speed control.

If you go to crawlinbc.com they're pretty serious about rc crawlers and have a thread that details the start-up costs for getting into it with an AX10. Their estimates come in around 500-600 with motor batts chargers etc...


All that having been said, I don't claim to be an expert on crawlers or rc's at all, I just know what I've picked up around the inter-webs...

Look at the short course trucks if you want to go faster and maybe race.

Definitely the best value for your money is the AX10 RTC, they are $269.99. These can be upgraded as you go along, so if you find you want more its easy to modify. Here is a link to the manufacturer http://www.axialracing.com/ftp/ax10rtc/

Depends what you wanna do with it. Lately the big hype are the scalers cause you can make your RC look just like your 1.1.....So then I would say buy a SCX10 or Honcho kit, then find your body like your 1.1 and you are ready to go and they crawl great too.
Here is a url to Valley RC there are some great shots there of scalers and also some info on last years RC Tuff Truck Comp.
