New Release – Axial UMG10 6×6 truck

We have seen several homebuilt 6×6 crawlers over the years and we were stoked when we saw the release of the Axial UMG10 6X6 truck. If you are a scaler who wants a 6×6 crawler, the Ready-to-run Axial SCX10 II UMG10 6X6 delivers realistic performance with an authentic military feel. It features the unrelenting SCX10 II chassis for exciting fun on trails, dirt, gravel, and similar surfaces.

OVERVIEW

For extreme off-roading with more “Get me out of here!” grip, six wheels are better than four. See what new territory you can explore with the 1/10 scale Axial UMG10 6X6 RTR. Built around the proven SCX10 II chassis, the UMG10 6X6 delivers class-leading RC crawler performance in a convenient, ready-to-run package — only a battery and charger are required. The military-style body captures the look of full-size 6X6 trucks, with scale features that include 1.9 military-spec wheels and tires, a working spare, and built-in mounting positions for front and rear LED lights. The performance on dirt and gravel trails does thrilling justice to the vehicle’s full-scale, all-terrain inspiration. Waterproof electronics keep the action alive over snow, mud, and more. With its durable SCX10 II metal-geared transmission, rugged AR44 axles, full ball bearings, and more, the Axial SCX10 II UMG10 6X6 lets even first-time RC drivers keep on going when the going gets tough!

MILITARY-BASED CREW CAB BODY WITH REAR CAGE

The ready-to-run Axial SCX10 II UMG10 6X6 delivers realistic performance with an authentic military feel — enhanced by this scale crew cab body with hinged rear cage for quick chassis access. The aggressive approach angle created by the vehicle’s front end design enables the UMG10 6X6 to take on steep inclines, and the long 17.3″ (439mm) wheelbase helps with agility in challenging terrain.

MOLDED PLASTIC GRILLE AND SCALE DETAIL

The realistic molded plastic grille features details such as a radiator, an embossed Axial logo, two clear marker lenses, and two headlight lenses. Additional scale details can be found throughout the body for an authentic military look.

REAR CAGE HINGED BODY SYSTEM

In addition to a carrier for the spare tire, the rear cage features a hinge system that allows quick access to the chassis for maintenance. Just remove two body clips hidden under the cab and raise the body to reach the battery and other on-board components.

MIL-SPEC WHEELS AND TIRES

Six 1.9 MT45 tires, molded in sticky Axial S30 compound rubber, keep the UMG10 6X6 crawler on course and climbing difficult terrain with ease. Their big block, symmetrical tread pattern provides plenty of grip to get over steep obstacles. The tires are mounted on injection-molded, 3-piece, MW19 beadlock wheels that offer the perfect scale look for a military build. A functional spare tire is also included.

TANDEM REAR AR44 AXLES

The UMG10 6X6 class-leading axle performance. Tandem AR44 rear axles with a high pinion design provide the toughness needed for rugged off-road trails. Universal joint axles, helical cut internal gears and high-quality bearings are all standard equipment. The ring gear/locker is a single-unit piece made of strong sintered metal, and the pinion is CNC cut for durability.

The AR44 axles feature a high pinion gear set for a much lower gear ratio than most vehicles, plus a smaller pumpkin and added strength. The gear set overcomes the torque twist often associated with smaller gear sets. The axle itself retains the durability associated with the SCX10, despite being delivered in a smaller axle housing.

  • High pinion gears for added ground clearance and better driveshaft angles
  • High pinion design increases gear surface contact for greater durability
  • Larger load bearings around the gear set reduce flex and strengthen the drivetrain
  • Single piece axle housing adds strength
  • One-piece all-metal locker front and rear
  • Small pumpkin for increased clearance and a more scale look
  • Optimized gear ratio reduces torque twist
  • Ring gear/locker is a single-piece unit made of strong sintered metal

 

 

 

EXTENDED FRAME RAILS

The UMG10 6X6 includes the same frame rails from the original SCX10 II chassis design, along with two additional steel c-channel frame rail extensions, each measuring 139mm in length. The frame rails are joined on either side by a rear link mount, which give the truck the length it needs to accommodate an additional rear axle.

 

LED FRONT AND REAR LIGHTS

For realism that continues when the sun goes down, outfit your UMG10 6X6 with lights — a total of eight mounting locations are built-in for easy LED installation. Four LED lights are included* – two white LED lights are mounted in the front bumper, and two red LED tail lights are mounted in the rear of the bed.

 

TWO-PIECE BED

By creating the bed from two pieces rather than as a single piece, Axial engineers have been able to give it much greater depth. Two working LED tail lights with red plastic tail light lenses are mounted in the rear of the bed

 

 

ADJUSTABLE COILOVER SHOCKS

Made to tight tolerances, the included coilover shocks feature precision-machined pistons for smooth action throughout their range of travel, delivering the crawling performance you expect from an Axial vehicle.

 

 

CHASSIS MOUNTED SERVO DESIGN (CMS)

Just as a full-size truck has its steering block located on the frame, Axial places the mounting location for your servo on the chassis. The front suspension provides the correct steering geometry with virtually no bump steer.

 

 

WB8 HD WILDBOAR DRIVESHAFTS

WB8 HD Wildboar front and rear driveshafts feature a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with a M4 screw shaft (2mm hex drive) for greater strength. A center splined slider floats between each end and has material to reduce flex and fatigue.
