The UPS guy delivered my Amain order today.


Axial SCX10 II Kit
Axial AE5 brushed esc
Yeah Racing Hackmoto 35T crawler motor
Savox SW-0231MG
Tactic TTX300 radio
Vanquish diff spool for the rear.

I'm still waiting on my SSD Stainless Steel/Titanium links(I ended up with the incorrect links they should be here tomorrow), and my Xtra Speed aluminum axles(still sitting in China :( )

I changed my mind about the "Interco Super Swampers", they are kind of small, the foams seem way to soft and the rubber compound is not as grippy as the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2's. So I mounted the BF Goodrich tires onto the aluminum beadlocks. I need to pick up a tire marker because I want white letters.




To start with we have the A Bag.
Sorry I opened the bag and had the axles almost assembled before I realized I forgot to take pics.


I put the Vanquish locker in the rear axle only, the stock locker has a bit of slop in it, from my understanding leaving the little bit of slop in the front helps do alleviate shuddering when turning sharp. I applied Tamiya Molybdenum grease to the gears to reduce wear, the gears in the SCX10 II are hypoid diff gears which scrub their teeth together as they rotate.




Does anyone know what these things are?


That is all for now.

I got my Wrangler three days ago and was wondering the exact same thing and stopped worrying about it until now, thanks to you lol. I did an internet search and they are gate markers I guess.

And without further ado the D bag.


Transmission gave me some troubles, the top shaft had a boat load of play in it so I had to make a custom spacer for the bearing. 5mm id 6mm od ~8mm long.

Bag G-H, sorry for lack of picks got in the zone and forgot to take pics along the way.




All I have left is to trim and paint the body, and add on the body accessories and I have a huge pile of parts left over.

Also my new TTX300 transmitter is slightly different than the one that came with my Outcast.
Outcast on the right new one on left.

The Fluorescent green and the Rally green were no good and I did my best to salvage the paint job.
I kind of like it.



The sticker for the drivers side got a bunch of air bubbles in it, and no matter what I did they would not come out :/

I was wondering if anyone on here could help me with something, I want to add led lights to this truck but not sure where to get the LEDs, what LEDs to get and what I will need for resistors, I do plan on running the lights off the receiver. I would prefer a kit but only Axial makes a kit and it isn't cheap. All I really need is the LEDs and resistors 2 5mm white, 2 5mm red, 2 5mm yellow and 2 3mm white I already have the wires and the plug for the receiver.

For the life of me I could not figure out why the heck my steering servo seemed like it was underpowered and not running right. It would help if I would have bought the correct servo. This entire time I thought I bought a Savox 0231MG servo, nope I bought a Savox 0230MG servo...........
