    Started getting into RC's by late October. I just bought an Axial SCX10 with a Ford Pickup body. Friends have the same chassis with other bodies. I really think mine sits to high. She looks good but lacks in the stability. Any experiences with this chassis? What about weighted ties & rims?

    I've got an AX10 converted into a full on buggy...

    heavily weighted front tires, lightly weighted rears, two-stage front foams, single stage rears, custom suspension all around (mounts and links and everything), front dig.

    I ended up with a chassis switch to lower everything...my lower links are actually flat now, it's that low. But it climbs and sidehills amazingly, and with the 55t Novak motor and a TorqueMaster ESC, it has plenty of burst to handle the breakovers.

    Also, move your battery onto the front axle...I did a custom plate with the servo on one side and a single 3-cell lipo on the other side.

    I swear these are more expensive than the 1:1 trucks...uugh

    I've got an SCX10 too...kept it stockish...outside of major adjustments (ie: starting over), it wasn't worth the work...too much fun as is :)
