    It sounds like you want the Axial, the Traxxas is a 2wd.

    not to mention that the traxxas is also a sct and probably wouldn't be a very capable crawler... +1 for the axial

    Definately the SCX10... You might not go anywhere fast... but you will go anywhere 4 tyres can get traction..

    Sweet. That'll have the crawling capability and scale features you're looking for, though I don't know how fast they go.

    made a good choice, Like Magnat007 said, the SCX10 might not be fast, but BOY OH BOY are they FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It is a one of a kind rig. nothing really comes as close to it, in being the most universal rigs.
    from almost perfect 1:1 replicas in 1:10th scale, to mud boggers, FoFF rigs, competition rig, there really isn't any limitations to this chassis.

    keep saving!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It will be WELL worth the wait for sure!!!!

    AMAZING choice man! SCX-10's are as [MENTION=1737]Greenie[/MENTION] said VERY customizable - a great site to check out for all your SCX-10 upgrades is here: RC4WD - The Ultimate RC Products if you haven't already found out about it

    Have a GREAT time with the new rig!

    I'm leaning towards the deadbolt over the wraith myself. Since you have the deadbolt can you give a quick review?

    unlike the others, I vote axial too, but not because of any reason other than I have had bad experiences with Traxxas, their parts, their service and their employees (never again will I buy traxxas)
