Hi from the "New Guy" :) and some questions for my 1st Trailing truck.

Post by d12go4 on Sun 29 Jan 2012 - 18:09

Hi Guys

Manoj here.

What an awesome site, I have been very impressed with your Rigs and especially the Videos you guys have posted of your trail runs around Singapore.

I am very interested to get into RC Trailing, and have been Googling a lot to get info on recommended trailing Rigs. I want to get one that will last me awhile, and which I will not "outgrow" fast Very Happy

I am now leaning towards getting the Axial SCX10. It seems to be highly upgradable, with a lot of aftermarket part support. I was initially thinking of getting the RTR Axial Honcho, as it would let me hit the ground running..so to speak Razz But I think that getting the Kit version might be the better option, in the long run. Building the Kit should be a lot of fun and it will definitely allow me to know more about the Kit. This should be useful if (or is it when) I decide to upgrade components Wink

I also understand that the Kit comes with better components than the RTR. Also, I really like the Dingo Body that the Kit comes with. I did build and run a Tamiya Midnight Pumpkin Kit in my "younger days", so i think I should be able to manage the SCX10 Kit (hopefully).... This will be a very slow build though, done on weekends after the wife and kids have gone to bed Wink

I do have some questions that I hope you guys can help with Embarassed

1) Where did you guys with the SCX10 rigs get yours from ? Are overseas WebStores (and eBay) the only sources ?
2) I believe I should be able to get locally, all the items the Kit does not come with (e.g. Motor, Battery, ESC, Servo) correct ?
3) What would a "reasonable" budget be for these additional items ?
2) I have a JR XP6102 Radio with Receiver, can this be used for Trailing ? I see that most guys seem to use the Wheel & Trigger Radio

Thanks in advance for your valuable input.

Manoj

Welcome on board!

Scx10 is a great choice for a trail rig...
I started with a rtr honcho and just upgraded the links...

Its good to start with a kit if u have time to build, as you will know how to service and maintain the rig... Smile

For electronics, there's a great range of pricing depending on whether u go for brand names or china/ ebay stuffs... Trailing does not really require high end stuffs... And you can still run well with simple electronics... Most importantly is to water proof them properly so that u can enjoy all kinds of terrain with your trail rig...

Cheapest so far is ordering via towerhobbies... As they have an additional usd 75 discount for orders usd299-399..

The rtr is quite value for money as it already includes everything required to run... unless you plan to upgrade better electronics it radio, personally I feel that the rtr is quite worth the price too..

Dingo has a shorter wheelbase compared to the honcho... You might also want to consider building a hard body land rover defender... Very Happy we have more than 10 landies in the group... Smile

Wait for the experts in the forum to give some comments too... Smile

Thanks for the warm welcome Very Happy

Yah, the RTR definitely has the advantage of letting me start "simple" trailing right out of the box. Smile

But I am still leaning towards building the Kit. I think that will be the better option, in the long run, as it will let me know the kit in detail. It really is too bad that none of the local Hobby Stores carry the SCX10 Embarassed

I did not realise that the wheelbase between the Kit (Dingo) and RTR (Honcho) was different lengths..

Cheers

Ordering online is fast too... And cheaper than you get from local shops...

Hi Boolean21

Thanks for your replies, much appreciated Very Happy

Yah, ordering online seems to be the way to go....

Although, I wonder if anyone here may be looking to sell ther "underutilised" SCX10 Laughing
I will put up a WTB on the Sales Page and keep my fingers crossed. In the meantime, will check online sites to see which gives the nest deal.

Cheers
