• The design of the EXO was based around those 1000hp, 4-seater dune buggies you see out in the desert. A full, chassis-integrated cage, individual body panels, massive off road tires, an interior and a few other custom details certainly hit that mark.
• To help reduce flex, add durability and help give the EXO its uber-cool look, a strong, multi-piece cage bolts to the chassis. It also acts as a mount for the body panels and rear shocks. The EXO looks pretty cool with just the cage (sans the body panels)!
• Axial includes 3 fluid filled differentials for the utmost in performance and reliability. The front and rear diffs are captured in a pair of low-profile housings to keep them low in the chassis.
• Even though it might look like a pain, a slick battery system makes changing the battery really easy!
• Innovative motor mounting system makes setting the gear mesh a breeze!
• Individual body panels not only look killer, but also allow you to remove individual ones for access to the chassis. Dave from RC Paint Labs laid down the fresh coat of liquid goodness! Came out looking great.
