Meet the new Axial Dodge Ram Power Wagon! Based on the SCX10 scale crawler chassis, the new Axial Power Wagon features a sweet two piece Dodge Ram body that can be used with the included bed or the optional SCX10 roll cage set. The Ram comes assembled and ready to run with a brushed 27t motor, waterproof ESC, 2.4Ghz radio system and high torque metal gear servo. Tons of pics and much more info after the jump, go check ’em out!
The Axial Dodge Ram’s axles have been designed with many features that are not available from other products on the market. Everything from the axle strength, pinion angle, caster, and ground clearance were taken into consideration when designing these axles. The result is a far superior axle that will stand-up to some severe punishment. To ensure added longevity from the start, a high-tolerance sintered diff locker is included along with hardened steel axle shafts.
The WB8 HD Wildboar Driveshafts feature an updated design with a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength. A center splined slider floats between each end and features added material which reduces flex and fatigue.
4 Link Suspension
The Power Wagon’s suspension geometry utilizes a 4-Link design for the rear which is optimized to reduce axle steer and torque twist. It also helps with steep off-camber climbs by having the proper amount of anti-squat and roll characteristics. The 4-Link system also aids against suspension wrap-up in high power applications.
Walker Evans Racing Wheels
The Axial Dodge Ram Power Wagon comes equipped with officially licensed Walker Evans Racing wheels are molded from a blend of high quality nylon materials for strength and durability with a solid 12mm hex mount and dressed in black for the stealthy race look.
The aggressive tread design and impressive ground clearance offer a realistic look for the image-conscious scale crawler who is also looking to improve their performance game. Realistic and aggressive tread design give the Axial Dodge Ram Power Wagon the ultimate scale appearance and maximum grip provided by Axial’s sticky R35 compound. They feature a 4.3″ height for extreme ground clearance, molded ribbing between the lugs help keep mud and snow from packing into the tire tread and recessed lugs for additional traction.
In the suspension department, the Dodge Ram SCX10 features single coil springs over oil filled shocks which allow you to tune the dampening rate. Shock hoops on the SCX10™ frame allow for multiple shock positions for tunable performance. There’s also coil over shock reservoirs for realistic scale looks.
Heavy Duty Diff Locker
Heavy duty differential lockers are included in the front and rear axles. They’re a one piece design made from strong sintered metal which provides superior metallurgical characteristics and can be manufactured with very tight tolerances. These lockers add weight where it is needed in the axle and they reduce slop in the drivetrain by eliminating a cross pin.
The Axial Dodge Ram Power Wagon’s transmission was designed to place the weight of the motor as low as possible to maintain a low CG (Center of Gravity). The ultra compact transmission doesn’t compromise performance because it also allows for a wide range of gearing choices. The overall ratio can be adjusted from 15:1 all the way up to 74:1 using different pinion/spur gear choices which allow for super high speed or to competition level crawling speed.
Dual Slipper Clutch
Axial’s dual slipper design uses a pad on each side of the spur gear for added surface area. This allows for more precise tuning and holding power. The Power Wagon’s spur gear features strong, 32 pitch gearing for high torque applications.
The Axial 27T motor supplies plenty of power for high speed trail runs or powering over obstacles. Tear up the terrain indoor or outdoors. Easy operation: no tuning, no fuel, no loud exhaust noise.
The Axial AE-5 ESC is 3S LiPo capable yet easily switched “in the field” between LiPO and NiMh battery types with a simple jumper – no more complex procedures. Waterproof design with waterproof On/Off switch, standard plug and laser etched heat sink.
The Axial Dodge Ram SCX10 comes equipped with a two channel pistol grip AX-3 2.4GHz transmitter with servo reversing switches for steering and throttle, trim dials for fine tuning steering and throttle centers. The battery indicator light also lets you know when your transmitter batteries run low.
The AR-3 2.4 GHz receiver uses no crystals so you’ll experience worry free driving with no frequency conflicts. This lightweight, compact, and bind button equipped receiver with LED indicator makes setup easy! A sealed radio box keeps your receiver safe from the elements.
