The 1/10 scale Axial® SCX10™ III Jeep® JL Wrangler 4WD kit marks the next step forward in scale off-road action. While continuing to incorporate key components that have made SCX10™ vehicles successful, the SCX10™ III increases chassis realism with details that include a replica V8 engine to house a front-mounted 540 motor. It’s mated to a realistic transmission housing and transfer case, like a 1:1 vehicle.
The kit’s versatile transmission can be built in several ways. If you’re using a 3-channel radio like the Spektrum™ DX3™, you can set it up with a third-channel DIG function that lets you lock the rear axle from the transmitter for front wheel drive and a tighter turning radius. Another 3-channel option is to set up the vehicle with a two-speed transmission to select between high and low speeds. To have access to the two-speed transmission and DIG function simultaneously, just add another servo and use a radio with at least four channels (such as the 5-channel Spektrum™ DX5).
The SCX10™ III Jeep® JL Wrangler kit 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 also space on the side rails for drivers who prefer “shorty” packs. Inner fenders and floor sides hide internal components that would usually be visible from the side of the chassis. To top off the chassis, the kit comes with a clear Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited four-door body that’s ready for finishing however you like. Scale details include a roll cage, front hood vents and cowl, windshield wipers, mirrors, door handles and more, plus a detailed interior. New taller and wider, officially licensed Nitto Trail Grappler tires on 3-piece licensed KMC Machete beadlock wheels add more scale realism and more grip on dirt, rocks, and all other off-road trails.
AR45 PORTAL AXLES Portal Axles like those found in some full-size off-roaders provide higher ground clearance and reduce the torque on other drivetrain components for improved performance. The new 6-Bolt locker and hypoid gears from the Capra are used front and rear, providing the same durability the Capra drivetrain is known for.
AR45P UNIVERSAL AXLE SET Universal joint axles provide more steering, and smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain. • Up to 45 degrees of steering • Smooth action for an efficient drivetrain • Compact yet durable design • Hardened steel construction
WB8 HD WILDBOAR™ DRIVESHAFTS WB8 HD Wildboar™ front and rear driveshafts feature an updated design with a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength. A center splined slider floats between each end and features added material which reduces flex and fatigue. • 3-piece driveshaft with strengthened slider-floater tube • Increased surface at the connection between the ball joints and output shaft tubes • 2x11mm cross pin adds 25% more surface area providing more strength for the ball joint • Captured cross pin design eliminates older set screw design for more durability/easy maintenance
INNER FENDERS AND FLOOR SIDES The SCX10™ III Jeep® JL Wrangler kit body’s inner fenders and floor sides hide internal components that would usually be visible from the side of the chassis. The sealed receiver box can be removed to give you more space for the electronics of your choice. An extra body post parts tree is included, allowing you to customize your rig with any 12.3” wheelbased bodies.
MULTIPLE TRANSMISSION OPTIONS Using a 3-channel transmitter and a micro servo you have control on demand. The SCX10™ III kit transmission can be configured in one of two ways. Set it up for 2-speed using the high and low gears or set it up for front dig to have a tighter turning radius with the rear axle locked. With a 4 channel transmitter and a second micro servo it can be configured to use both features. ALL METAL GEARS Every gear in the SCX10™ III is metal. The differentials, transmission, everything. No compromise!
FRONT-MOUNTED MOTOR The motor mounts forward in the chassis, under the V8 engine detail. It’s mated to a realistic transmission housing and transfer case, like a 1:1 vehicle. NOTE: motor not included.
SCALE ENGINE DETAIL Scale features including a replica V8 engine, transmission housing, and transfer case all cover and protect your electric motor while adding to the realistic appearance.
MULTIPLE BATTERY LOCATIONS The SCX10™ III Jeep® JL Wrangler has a standard battery tray that accepts full-size standard LiPo or NiMH packs. There’s space on the side rails, too, for drivers who prefer smaller size packs or need additional power for other accessories.
ADJUSTABLE WHEELBASE CHASSIS The SCX10™ III Jeep® JL Wrangler kit wheelbase is adjustable with optional links, allowing you to build your rig to the wheelbase of your choosing. NOTE: Optional links sold separately.
3-PIECE BEADLOCK WHEELS Legendary in the off-road world, these officially licensed KMC XD Machete wheels are molded in satin chrome and include stunning scale details. Because they’re 3-piece beadlock wheels, tires can be mounted, removed and replaced easily without gluing. NITTO TRAIL GRAPPLER TIRES (R35 COMPOUND) The R35 compound Nitto Trail Grappler tires included with the SCX10™ III Jeep® JL Wrangler kit are taller and wider (4.74 x 1.7), providing more ground clearance and more grip in the variety of terrain that you will find while you’re off-roading.
ALUMINUM ADJUSTABLE SHOCKS The oil-filled shocks have hard anodized, threaded bodies, a single coilover spring, plus an emulsion-style cap with screw for easier rebuilds. The shocks are tunable for achieving the best dampening rate. Their increased bore size also creates more fluid volume for better performance.
25T and 23T metal servo horns included!
All links are metal including the steering. All pivot points are on stainless steel balls that provide a durable, long-lasting suspension point.
CHASSIS MOUNTED SERVO (CMS)* CMS has become a standard in scale RC and the SCX10™ III is designed with that standard in mind. The servo is mounted in the chassis, just as a full size Jeep has its steering box located on the frame. But with this seemingly simple action comes a complexity of suspension hurdles to overcome - one of which is bump steer. The undesirable steering is caused by bumps interacting with improper length or angle of suspension and steering links. We made it our mission to design the front suspension in such a way that it eliminates or comes as close as possible to zero bump steer, to help give you the best driving experience possible. *NOTE: Steering servo not included.
OPTIMIZED SUSPENSION GEOMETRY The suspension geometry is based on the SCX10™ II but refined slightly for the new chassis layout. The front suspension has been optimized to reduce bump steer, while the rear 4-link reduces torque twist. It also helps with steep off-camber climbs by having the proper amount of anti-squat and roll characteristics. The 4-Link system also aids against suspension wrap-up in high power applications. Strong 6mm stainless steel links with high grade plastic rod ends for durability.
INTERIOR DETAILS Choose from three hat styles for the driver’s plastic molded head. Plastic molded head with three hat options included - a military style helmet, ball cap, and cowboy hat.
BODY POSTS INCLUDED Mount optional bodies with the included body post parts tree.
CLEAR JEEP® WRANGLER BODY The clear scale Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited body mirrors its full-size counterpart with a detailed interior for “super scale” looks. The interior has a molded roll cage, steering wheel, and driver head. There are many molded scale details on the body, too: front radiator/light buckets; front hood vents; front cowl; windshield wipers; mirrors; door handles; and fuel door. Hidden body clips keep the body lines clean! Add optional LED lights to the included front and rear light buckets. NOTE: exterior body and interior comes clear, paint not included.
REQUIRED ITEMS (not included)
Depending on your build and preferred setup, optional micro servo for dig not included, and optional micro servo for 2-speed not included.
