    I really like the Axial SCX10. And I'm looking for a good scale truck, is there anything that needs to be replaced right out if the box?

    not really, out of the box they're pretty darn tough.
    Servo and steering link might need looking into, but can coupe without an upgrade.
    couple of spare C hubs for the front, just about all i can think of

    if you keep it stock absolutely not. Ive got 5 of them. ive only ever done upgrades because I wanted to. Now that being said. if you beat the snot out of it you can break it. but the rig itself is not to blame for that.

    OK why in the world 5??!! I mean it's awesome but... That's a lot of the same truck.
    I'm looking for something with wheel speed and torque. I think this is the one is the one for me.

    Each one is diferent.
    Ive got 2 honchos so frinds can trail with me. Even if they dont have a rig.
    I built a jeep for my son to drive and gave it to him for christmas.
    One has been modded into a 1/6 scale ford ranger and the other into a 6x6 flatbed recovery rig.
    Now ask me why i have over 45 rc's lol.
    I cant figure that one out so easy.

    Ive just been super lucky. Not much ive paid full price for. I just keep my eyes open for good deals. For example i hot a traxxas stamped 4x4 vxl for $29.99 at a thrift store. All it needed was a reciver a drive shaft and a battery strap. I made a strap and had a reciver annd drive shaft in a drawer. Lol

    Never. Although if a teade or offer comes up i cant refuse ill go for it. I just traded an old beat up traxxas boat for a drill press today.
    I got the boat in a bunch of stuff i got off a local buy and sell site for $50 i got a spektrum dx3c 2 spektrum recevers, 2 boats,a cheap drone, a losi micro buggy, and a honeybee c2 helicopter and some other random stuff so i was already way up on that deal before trading the boat off.

    I was looking at the Traxxas one but I don't like the axels. A real truck won't have those axles so I want one with real straight axles not ported.

    My chassis is basically stock. Every thing holds up great. Buy the SCX10! I think you will find it more than capable scale rig, borderline crawler, and more so than the trail finder 2, that is intended to be what I consider to be true scale. Then again the TF2 is pretty capable too.
    Not much help, but I love my SCX10!
