Axial Jeep Wrangler G6The new Axial Jeep Wrangler G6 comes with a variety of upgrades including a custom 2-door Jeep Wrangler Rock Racer body with deleted rear fenders, trail modified smooth sides and a dove-tailed rear section and for maximum clearance. Under hood the rig includes aluminum links, Icon Vehicle Dynamics coil-over aluminum shocks, a Poison Spyder Rock Brawler front bumper, a dove-tail universal bolt-in cage and a roof mounted light bar – equipment that will get you through your backyard terrain or allow you to complete grueling G6 Challenge stages. Axial has included a set of officially licensed Maxxis Trepador tires molded in their R35 sticky compound which offers superior grip and they’re mounted on black Walker Evans Racing wheels for an aggressive look.

About Recon G6
Founded in 2009, the RECON G6 event series is a lifestyle, an R/C scale fun adventure for the entire family. Most R/C events through history have been held on closed courses. RECON G6 events are held in outdoor environments making use of the natural terrain. RECON G6 events are based around adventure, battling the environment and building camaraderie with fellow competitors. This is very much the same type of competitive event as the globally famous Camel Trophy Cup. Like these events, RECON G6 events are point to point challenges with special skill sections pitting man and machine against the elements. R.E.C.O.N. has a goal to help drivers be the best R/C driver that they can be. R.E.C.O.N. will achieve this goal by constant commitment to driver training, designing challenging courses, rewarding good driving, and instituting the values of sportsmanship. R.E.C.O.N. understands that success does not come without adversity and how a driver handles adversity defines their character. R.E.C.O.N. will encourage drivers to strive for success, but to accept adversity with professionalism and integrity.

Icon Shocks
Axial is proud to feature Icon Vehicle Dynamics Aluminum Shocks in the Jeep Wrangler G6 as standard equipment. These aluminum shocks feature precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies, complete with aluminum faux reservoirs. The main body of the shock is threaded for quick ride height adjustments and pre-load tuning ability. Like their full size counterparts these shocks are completely rebuildable, tunable and offer consistent handling all while adding some of that Icon bling to your SCX10 chassis.

Poison Spyder Rock Brawler Bumper
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.

Light Bar
The light bar’s tubular design give’s your vehicle cool scale looks and each light bucket can be outfitted with an LED light to help guide the way on those late night runs (NOTE: LED lights sold separately). The set also includes three different mesh grilles for your lights: plain, Axial and officially licensed PIAA grille covers. PIAA is a registered trademark of PIAA corporation.

Threaded Aluminum Links
The lower suspension links are machined from aluminum to reduce flex and provide precise control over the roughest terrain. The tubes are threaded at both ends for easy assembly and make for a durable 4-link suspension. We’ve also included a threaded aluminum steering link which helps guide your vehicle with more precision.

Maxxis Trapador Tires
We’ve included a set of officially licensed Maxxis Trepador tires molded in our R35 sticky compound which offers superior grip and they’re mounted on black Walker Evans Racing wheels for an aggressive look! These are taller than our Ripsaw 1.9 tires which gives you more ground clearance, bump absorption and trail ruggedness for smooth, stable performance on your favorite trails. Tire dimensions: 4.6″ tall, 1.43″ wide

Walker Evans Racing Wheels
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 an aggressive look.

WB8 Wild Boar Driveshafts
The Axial Jeep Wrangler G6 includes WB8 Wild Boar driveshafts which feature constant velocity joint for efficient and friction free movement. Full metal-to-metal construction for the CVJ housing makes them durable. They’re also easy to assemble and maintain!

4 Link Suspension
The suspension geometry utilizes a 4-Link design for the front and 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.

Axles
The Axial Jeep Wrangler G6 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 axle shafts.

Transmission
The Wrangler G6 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.

Slipper Clutch
Allows the motor to work more efficiently and greatly enhances the durability of the drivetrain allowing the transmission to slip in hard binds.

Scale Details
The SCX10 is packed with a variety of realistic details like two steering wheels (standard and a chain version), d-rings, light buckets and a full dove-tailed roll cage molded in tough nylon injected plastic for durability. The body is clear and includes window and headlight masks making it easy to customize your paint scheme and the headlight buckets give you an added bit of realism by allowing you to add optional LED lights.

Officially Licensed Jeep Body
Customize your ride! The included Jeep Wrangler G6 body comes clear, ready for your custom paint scheme. We’ve also included a clear windshield, headlight buckets with paint masks and full sheet of pre-cut decals.

    What is the difference between this and the other wrangler they released?

    • I haven’t compared them part for part but it looks like this one has a different 2 door body as opposed to the 4 door body of the Rubicon, the G6 appears to have shorter chassis, different upper suspension links, different roll cages, the G6 includes a lightbar, and the Rubicon has mirrors, rear bumper and tire carrier which the G6 doesn’t.

    I’m loving it! Looks much better than the 4 door version
