Buying Guide: Axial 1/10 SMT10 Monster Truck Platform [VIDEO]
From Horizon Hobby:
The headlining attractions at Monster Jam® motorsport events are undeniably the large, loud monster trucks. They keep audiences roaring and riveted, whether they’re battling for the lead in traditional racing or flexing their freestyle muscles through two minutes of gravity-defying tricks and stunts. For its part, Axial® has earned legions of RC racing fans by producing crawler vehicles that keep on pounding over the toughest obstacle-strewn tracks. Axial® knows how to make models that provide almost unlimited potential to adventure and explore.
Now Axial® has turned its attention to creating a monster truck platform for bashers to make their very own, and the result is the SMT10 Monster Truck RAW Builder’s Kit — a true-to-scale, 4-wheel drive, straight-axle RC truck that offers an ideal foundation of performance and realism.
Axial® designers went all out when creating the SMT10 monster truck chassis and roll cage. Very similar full-size Monster Jam® truck chassis, the SMT10 tube frame was developed for maximum strength and has an extremely realistic appearance. It provides a variety of shock mounting points for suspension tuning options, with additional mounting points on the cage and at the axle for moving the shocks to a more scale, vertical position if desired. Mated to the proven Axial® AR60 axle, the SMT10 chassis’ 4-link suspension soaks up any obstacles in its path.
The AX10 transmission included with the SMT10 Monster Truck RAW Builder’s Kit is designed to make the most of your motor’s power. Its Dual Pad slipper system features a pad on each side of the spur gear to increase surface area, resulting in improved tuning precision and holding ability. Strong 32-pitch gearing enhances performance in high-torque applications.
Experience the thrill of arena monster truck action wherever you bash with the Axial® SMT10 Monster Truck RAW Builder’s Kit. Add your choice of body, wheels, tires and electronics and unleash your inner beast
