If you want cool looking stuff check out Rc4wd...But they aren't that strong, so even though they look real pruddy and scale like....you will brake them.

Axial ax/scx are the cheapest 'scale' axial around that most use & with the right upgrades, are bomb-proof. The downside to Axial's is they are a bit wide so they limit your body choice.

If you're going for a small style body have a look at Losi Mini Rock Crawler axles (they have their weak spots, and limits due to size) or even old school Tamiya TLT-1 axles (stronger that MRC, but harder to get these days...and still have their weak points).

My suggestion is get your body & chassis together first and then decide based on width & weight what axles to use.
That and hit up google.

body choice for me is not high priority.. as im gonna be customizing to a tow vehicle..
maybe a working flat bed at this stage

function over form (kind sorta)

thanks mate.. i had been lookin at axial gear as my chassis is apparently similar to an axial.. i got it off nathan..

poor bugger got robbed on christmas day..

anyway back on topic..

it doesnt have to be exact replica or anything..
thanks again wideload
