Krazy Krakker Damn Harley, that was a nice rig, Sorry to see it go down like that.
On a bright note tho, you always see Geico advertising they insure everything, maybe you should give'm a call and tell'm to put their policy where their mouth is.
Post up some after pics when you get a chance of the inside, just curious as to what it all looks like now.

Not a chance I was going to let anyone reach in there and try and get it out. Plus, if you saw how hard it was to get a battery in an EXO you'd understand even more. Last thing I want is anyone getting hurt over a stupid toy truck.

Harley0706 Harley's Axial EXO burns to the ground *Language Warning* - YouTube

meatmonkey Common, at least provide us with pics/vids of it burning to the ground.

Your probably the first one to burn an Exo to the ground!

We were out shooting video though so at least we can watch it burn to the ground over and over.

Stock bellcrank is mostly plastic. The manual is available on their site, you can download and see what the pieces are constructed from.

The diffs are the same as the AX10/SCX10/Wraith, as far as a dimension, I don't have that.

There is a good amount of clearance in front, the wide tires would most likely work up their too.

I agree!

It's looking good Harley, I bet it is going to be a blast!

Harley0706 As soon as I have the Wraith back in my hands I'll hit it full bore. It is definitely my most favorite rig.

This rig is just something new, no idea what I'll do with it yet.

Harley0706 Right now the truck is basically box stock. Built pretty much completely by the book. I didn't assemble this truck myself I will admit. A local club member who we call Fat Jesus built the truck. He's meticulous and thorough, he made tons of notes in the manual on things to watch for and notes to make to Axial. I'll go over some of those later.

Here are some shots as she sits now.

Wiring was ran in the wiring channels that Axial built into the chassis wings.

Harley's EXO Terra Buggy #AX078553






I'm beginning my journey down a path I have never tried before and not enjoyed.... a RC that goes fast. :mrgreen: With all the crazy King of the Hammers trucks being built in the real rock crawling/desert racing world, my interest is peaked right now. I want to see what I can incorporate from those worlds into the RC version. I know this isn't a crawler, but I am and it's all I know how to do! We'll see what that means for this truck.

I had a Slash, didn't care for it. I thought it was at first but it just wore off quick. The minimal scale styling of the other SC trucks lead me to think I could get into them but after 20 mins of driving one I was over it.


Now comes the EXO. The cage and detail work really draw me on by my scaler roots. At this point I don't have much to add about the truck other than I think it looks bad ass 8) We'll get into the details as I go.

I'm completely unsure on what direction I'll take this truck at this point. I am struggling with the idea of hacking off the rear end and making it a trophy truck but at this point I want to drive it as it was designed.
