After machining an ABS base plate that fits in the Axial Honcho cage, and installing the FeiyuTech Mini3D Gimbal I have now sprayed some paint on the Ford body made by Pro-Line. The rear fenders come from a Pro-Line Slash body. Time for an interior and some accessories!
I have done a whopping 100 miles with my Axial Racing SCX102 Ready to Run, and it has performed like a champ! Nothing broke, it is by far one of the best RTR’s in my collection. I did add a few accessories by Pro-Line Racing, but apart from that it is mostly stock.
For Scale Crawler kits, GMade has made a name for themselves by first introducing the reliable Sawback Jeep based platform. They have since followed up with a KOMODO Truck version and now a 4LS version of the Sawback which is a newer 4 link suspension equipped kit. These kits offer great entry level performance as well as upgradable scale trail rig performance. Pro-Line has you covered on how to upgrade your Saw back into a certified scale crawling machine!

On Sunday March 13, 2016 I attended a local scale competition. With partly sunny skies with high 80 degree weather made it a perfect day on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii for another Hawaii Scale Adventure.
In this video I’m highlighting some of the new releases from Pro-Line Racing. Their new BF Goodrich Baja T/A KR2 Tires are licensed and have proven themselves in full scale in the King of the Hammers races in both 2014 and 2015. I’m using the 1.9″ version on the SCX10, and the 2.2’s which I also have will be a perfect alternative in case I want to switch things up on my Yeti. Along with the release of the tires Pro-Line has also released some new Beadlock wheels. Made from durable nylon, both the Denali’s in 1.9″ and the FaultLines in 2.2” look super scale, and they all come with aluminum bead lock rings.
Axial’s RR10 Bomber Platform has burst onto the RC scene, quickly becoming one of the most sought after rigs in a short period of time It has captured the thrill of ULTRA4 Racing / King of the Hammers events. It’s a nicely balanced 1:10 scale rig that lends it self to all sorts of detailing and Upgrades! Pro-Line Racing recognizes this and set out on a quest to build our version of the Ultimate Rock Racer. We are proud to offer exciting products to upgrade this awesome platform into the rock racer of your dreams as well as show you how to put it all together into one awesome package.
No doubt that Axial’sYeti Platform has made a significant impact on the Off-Road Rock Racing scene since it was introduced just over a year ago. It is a versatile crawler / rock racer platform which can be modified to adapt in many different styles of terrain and driving. Pro-Line Racing recognize this and we some offer exciting products to upgrade this awesome platform into the rock racer of your dreams.
What you are about to see here in this article is a culmination of testing and modifications to our 1:10 scale Yeti test unit #1 from the initial release. This vehicle has logged some serious hours and we are glad to share with you this monster of a build.
The Gear : Scale Accessories #5 and #7 http://www.prolineracing.com/performa… http://www.prolineracing.com/performa…On top of that there were numerous light buckets and some LED wiring that had to be done as well as a custom hand painted paint job by me, DaveM. Using paint markers and some quick sketching skills I put together The Sketch Box body and backed it with white. I went for this look to keep the truck bland of color yet complicated in design and quite artistic. Looks like it worked out okay and it stands out from the rest of the Cherokee rigs out there. Look for a blog post of the complete build this weekend: http://www.radiocontrolpatrol.com
More videos to follow as The Sketch Box makes it way around the trails here in Georgia. Thanks for viewing and have a good day.
