Spotted at the Toy Fair is Axial’s new Ridgecrest that carries the Ax10 chassis designation. At first the RTC machine looked cool with its grippy Ripsaw tires on Renegade wheels and its tube style bumpers bolted to the low mounted body, but once we popped the lid we realized this wasn’t and ordinary AX10 we were checking out. The AX platform appears to have undergone a major overhaul with bulky steering linkage up front. Plastic tube style frame, enclosed radio box with ESC mount for Axial’s AE-2 speedo, threaded shocks and a lot more. The rig is equipped with a 2.4GHz radio and the battery sits in a cradle towards the rear. The overhaul is very impressive!
