Axial Racing Early Ford Bronco SCX10 III RTR

Over at Axial Racing they have just dropped a 1/10 scale, super detailed, replica of Ford Bronco: the first sport-utility vehicle from the Ford Motor Company.  In 1965, race car builder Bill Stoppe assembled a team of first-generation Broncos for long-distance off-road competition. They competed in the Mint 400, Baja 500, and the Mexican 1000 (later renamed Baja 1000) and the Bronco became an icon of off-road history.

This is one of the most detailed models Axial has ever produced. It includes the key components that have made the SCX10 III chassis so popular, and adds features never before found in a Ready To Run scaler.

Realistic solid axle performance joins 8S brushless power that pushes the needle to over 60 Km/h while the stability of AVC technology lets you hold nothing back through corners and jumps.

The large tires and new front end geometry increase suspension travel and improve performance over any terrain. Super Rock Rey loves rocky off-road tracks, and the rougher, the better! It also rips through sand, mud, water, and most any other surface condition.
