Axial released a brand new promotional video of the 1/10 scale Jeep JLU Wrangler 4WD built on the SCX10 III chassis that increases realism with details that include a replica V8 engine that houses the installed brushed motor. It’s mated to a realistic transmission housing and transfer case, like a 1:1 vehicle.
This model also comes complete with the Spektrum DX3 3-channel 2.4GHz DSMR transmitter and Firma 40A ESC/receiver.

The SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler transmission features a third-channel DIG function that lets you lock the rear axle from the transmitter for front wheel drive and a tighter turning radius. As an alternative, you can set up the vehicle with a two-speed transmission instead and select between high and low speeds. If you’d like to use both the two-speed transmission and DIG function, just add another servo and a radio with at least four channels (such as the 5-channel Spektrum DX5).
This model uses portal axles to improve performance by increasing the ground clearance and reducing torque twist. Its standard battery tray accepts full-size “standard” LiPo or NiMH packs. There’s space on the side rails as well for drivers who prefer smaller packs. Inner fenders and floor sides hide internal components that would usually be visible from the side of the chassis.
