RC Truck Stop builds a Rusty’s Off-Road RC4WD Axial Jeep

"If you’re an off-road enthusiast, you probably know the name Rusty’s. Largely dedicated to the rock crawling and off-road adventure crowd, Rusty’s Off-road is a popular retailer that has its own comprehensive proprietary line of products to accompany the extensive lineup of accessories it sells from other manufacturers. They sell all over the world and have an astonishing catalog of parts. Sounds a lot like an RC company we know. Yup, Rusty’s is pretty much the full-size version of RC4WD. We got such a kick out of the similarities of these two companies that we thought building an RC version of a Rusty’s Jeep was just a natural. Our goal was to build a scale Jeep that looked just like one of Rusty’s show Jeeps. We outfitted it with a solid smattering of RC4WD accessories, and as you have probably already deduced from the photos, we used an Axial SCX10 as our foundation for this build. To add more icing on the cake, since we’re using the super popular SCX10, we added our top tips and tricks to show how to optimize the performance of a trail rig."
