Ready-To-Go, bolt-on package with no modifications needed. Most affordable way to get this steering and all these other options in one!
1. What is it and why XRMOD?
One of the weaknesses of the stock SCX10 is its limited steering ability. XRMOD stands for using Axial's XR10 driveshafts modified on the SCX10 axle. This XRMOD upgrade increases steering angle dramatically to over 45 degrees. This upgrade maximizes steering angle to increase steering radius. The PHAT axle is one of the heaviest axles available on the market. It keeps the rig down when maneuvering and climbing. Add weight at the lowest point of your rig with no additional stress on the drivetrain. Also, adding weight to the front of your rig helps on climbing. Axle shafts are stainless steel universals, which is a tough and durable with high steering angle. The 4mm stainless steel steering links are top of the line in the market, adding scale realism and toughness to the front of your rig.
2. Why might I need to consider buying XRMOD compared to a housing or complete axle?
You must use Wraith Knuckles (Axial #AX31316 or #AX80061) and Chubs (Axial #AX80062). That’s all. It can be stock or after market. Boom Racing manufactures the Wraith Knuckles and Chubs as an option upgrade, which you can use as well.
3. Which rigs work with this?
It works with SCX10 and you can build any custom rig starting with a good set of axles. You must use Wraith Knuckles and Chubs (Axial #AX80062) instead of the SCX10 Knuckles and Chubs. Everything else you have for the SCX10 can use reused on this upgrade. It uses the stock SCX10 bevel gears, spool, locker and input shafts.
4. Any advantage of this axle over SCX10 II axles?
Even tho the SCX10 II axles are a newer release, the XRMOD PHAT Axle has a few advantages over them. Heavy duty gears. SCX10 II gears are much smaller and cannot withstand as much stress as the original SCX10 gears which are almost twice as large. Going high speed to a halt and then reversing, the smaller gear will break easily in such stress. PHAT Axles heavier.
5. What parts that Asiatees carry fit on this?
One of the reasons to go with this upgrade is the abundance of parts for the axle. AsiaTees has stock Axial Wraith knuckles and chubs, and upgraded aluminum Axial knuckles and chubs too. AsiaTees has carries other brands of knuckles and chubs.
6. What's the benefits and how does the rig handle when I use this?
The axle has a functioning diff cover, which is more realistic than more. You can easily access the gears inside to add grease. The axle is also designed to slide over any rocks easily. Good luck breaking these axles – they are made to withstand the toughest environments.
7. Any spare parts I can buy if I break something?
All parts are separately available. The 303 stainless steel drive shafts are stock XR10 drive shaft shortened. They are available separately on AsiaTees. The 4mm stainless steel steering links are available separately also.
