Unboxed! : Axial SCX10 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited C/R Edition RTR

The C/R Edition is the newest flavor of the ever-popular Axial SCX10 line of scale crawling trail trucks. Below is some information from the initial press release.

Axial’s latest offering is a Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon featuring components that are considered the hottest in the aftermarket arena. Rigid Industries is one of the most popular companies supporting the Jeep® aftermarket and their LED lighting products are some of the most sought after upgrades. For this product, Axial has included a pre-installed, scaled down 50″ E-Series light bar along with scaled down versions of the wildly popular Rigid Dually lights. All of the Rigid lighting is functional featuring 10 working LEDs.

Axial has also teamed with Casey Currie to bring this latest Jeep® to market. Casey is one of those iconic individuals who lives and breathes the Jeep® brand. Having grown up exploring the back roads within the legendary Currie family, Casey embodies the Axial lifestyle to a T. When he isn’t out racing his short course truck, riding his dirt bike or rock crawling his JK, he’s busy wrenching on and driving his Axial rigs. His latest venture is a brand called CRC. The CRC message is fun whether cruising, racing or crawling Jeep® brand vehicles. You can expect many great things from Casey and the CRC brand for your full size Jeep® in the near future!

We were lucky enough to get our hands on one of the first kits for your viewing pleasure! Check out this RC Soup exclusive unboxing video!


The truck comes preassembled and is RTR (Ready to Run). All you need is a charged 2s Lipo or 6 cell Nimh pack as well as 4 AA’s for the transmitter and you are off to the races.. or in this case, the trails!

Below are some quick detail shots as we get this beast out of it’s cardboard prison and ready for the dirt.


Awesome box art as usual


Details about the kit on the side


The Jeep unleashed!


Radio removed from bubble wrap (that my 4 year old promptly ran off with)


A little closer look at the truck as we dig into the box. She’s zip tied to the insert for safe shipping.


It’s out! Sick looking rig ya got there Axial!


First thing I noticed was the wires on the lightbar. This looked fun to do (not really). Bonus to getting the RTR is the wiring is done for you! The Rigid E-Series light bar is sure to light up the night!


Rigid Dually lights grace the corners of the windshield for even more lighting.


CRC edition Black Rock Wheels look fantastic wrapped in 1.9 BFGOODRICH KRAWLER T/A KX TIRES


Officially Licensed Poison Spyder Rock Brawler front bumper adds realism and functionality. The bumper features functional D-Rings for realistic recoveries, mounting holes for LED lights and an excellent approach angle to tackle extreme terrain.


Casey Currie!


Body clips with pull tabs? Thank you axial!


A shot of the rear end. I wish this thing had tail lights.


No “donut” here.. this baby comes with a full size spare!


There’s something unique about this rear bumper/spare tire mount…


It swings out!


Nicely detailed dash and steering wheel


Profile shot


Be careful when taking off the body, it’s wired to the truck! (You can unplug it).


Light controller is mounted to the body. That’s always convenient. It keeps all the wires on the body.


Tactic TSX45 metal gear servo is rated at 151 oz-in of torque for massive turning power


Another shot of that awesome bumper


The shocks on the SCX10 feature dual rate springs which help deliver maximum off-road performance.


Axial AE-2 ESC was developed in partnership with Castle Creations. It’s neatly installed with an easily accessible on/off switch

Bottom line on this truck? Well, we just got it.. but being an SCX10 we can pretty much guarantee the performance will be great. We’ve never tested a RTR version. We did build a Honcho a few years ago if you missed that. We can however say that if you have been holding out on getting one, this body style is by far my favorite. The white paintjob really pops as well. Plus you can customize it with either Casey Currie or Rigid industries decals. They both look awesome.

Look for more coverage on this rig in the coming weeks.
