Axial SCX10 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon 1/10
« on: January 11, 2021, 02:50:59 am »

Hi all;


I have been enjoying this car since last September when I got it.
Recently, I modified the transmission to two speed with the disassembly of the transmission.
It works well and runs much faster as seen in the following video.
This day,it ran 5.8kms on moderate terrain at my local river side. :embarrassed:

I made a minor modification to the transmitter as shown below, but it is very convenient to operate the car outdoors.
The modification is aimed at setting a shift switch holder unless it is,I have to keep the switch constantly in the two speed
driving.It is troublesome when doing so. %%

I attached a "fuel gauge" to the rear of the car by which I was able to confirm the battery conditions whenever necessary
at a glance while driving.! Very useful for me to drive the car for a long distance or other hard terrain. O0

Hi number-1;


Thanks a lot for your kind comment on my posting.! :embarrassed:
This car is a kind of artificial and practical dog to be able to run on the field together with me.
So "the dog"could follow me about  8kms for a walk the other day in one battery of 3S5000mAh lipo
with still keeping more capacity to run longer with no complaint against me.! %% {-)

Hi all;


I got a trailer to be towed by the jeep.
And I found it necessary to modify largely,,,,, :((

Hi all;

Hi all;


Pics for today are as follows;
Home-made tow hitch and trailer are connected like these.
But,the trailer itself does not stand alone...Needs to be modified next,,, :((

Looking really good, did you make the trailer yourself?

Hi Andy M;
Of course, not ! Chinese-made, but so inexpensive.
Instead, I have modified the trailer to suit my way of usage.
