    Yes, we turn them into scalers and 2.2 Sporty rigs. The AX10 axles are the same as the SCX10.

    alright, just need to check the sizes again at the shop. if it looks like I can handle the size or drop the body on the scx10 into a comp style I'll grab one of them (from what I seen in pictures I don;t see what would stop me. the plastic parts that stick out past the body apear to be removable) if not I'll prolly pick up an AX10. I kind of like the way, atleast the olser ones the front wheels stick out farther then the bumper and the body sits so low. I did see a new one set up like an old one and the new ax-10 have the same plastic things under the body that I see on the scx10, least far as I can tell. thank you both for the help. I know jslick must be getting annoyed with me by now. he has answered every stupid question that popped into my head over the last day or two over on RRC

    stopped on the way home to buy the battery and charger and look the cars over. figured both the ax10 and the scx10 would both take the same battery so I was good either way. looked em over and decided the ax10 would fit my needs better. the scx10 was longer and the frame ran almost the whole length.

    well I decided to get a nice charger that does lipo and standard batteries and got a 5000 standard battery for now. I know all it takes is an adapter and swappin out some connections but for now I just wanted to play with out making changes. bought the battery and charger, put them in my car, stood there for a second and walked back in and bought the ax10. was 50 bucks off the 299 price tag because it was the last and the display model. only problem is there are no body clips in the box to hold the body on. will either stop at the shop tonight (about a 3 min drive) or tomorrow on the way home to pick some up. figure 4 tiny pieces of metal have to be cheap.

    also seen a few bodies there that cought my eye. the bug (I drive a gti so I'm fond of VW) a camaro and an el camino. just need to find a few vids on how to paint bodies before I buy one.

    not sure where to put this, so I'll continue with the thread I have started till I figure it out.

    had some fun watching you guys crawl and trying my hand at the scale courses when you were done. I had a blast once I got back to the campground, chasing the dog and the kid, it handles most of the boulders around the side great (could use some work with some of the steeper stuff) is almost perfect for rompin thru the woods with. I need to get some of the weight down and I'd like to get some weight in the wheels. after that I plan to replace some of the breakable parts with metal as they break. I'd also like it alittle slower (thinkin a 27t motor, stock it came with a 20t) and some how get a tighter turning radius but thats not as important.

    after about 3 hours of crawling over the boulders and ramping off some, flipping it over and trying to get it righted again (the baby thought it was funny and would laugh her *** off every time it flipped) I noticed it wasn't acting the same and when I went to check it out I had lost front wheel drive. the driveshaft is slipping.... I can feel it catch slightly once every rotation of the wheel. no idea yet why, but for the most part I think the ridgecrest the perfect kind of car for playing there.

    stopped on my way home for some tools. time to try and dissemble it alittle and see what I can do about the driveshaft and the weight. hope I donlt lose anything.

    if I want to get into crawling I may just have to buy a used car thats more set up for it comp or scale and use this as a trail / woods play at the campground.

    Edit: 4 hours later the car is back together, the battery is relocated to the front but not any lower. electronics are mounted to the bottem of the battery tray because the wires were not long enough to mount them in the back.

    the 3 screw in the transmission had conme out completly... when I took the transmission apart I couldn;t figure out how it worked because the gear just spun free... found the screws laying in the casing I took off. will have to get some locktight for the next time it happins. I enjoyed the 4 hours and the only thing that would have made it better was some SC and a cold beer. I took the battery tray on and off so many times trying to figure otu how to get it apart and put it together I think I I'ma be dreaming about it tonight.

    anyways time to make sure it still works.
