Default Scale 4x4 RC gets it's grubby little hands on the new Axial AX10 Ridgecrest

That's right boys and girls, Scale 4x4 RC just received the latest from Axial. The AX10 Ridgecrest RTR!


I received the truck today and got it unboxed and photographed for you, I'll also be posting an unboxing video with my first impressions of the Ridgecrest in the next few days. In the mean time enjoy the images and specs below!

Map is minimum advertised price. That means retailers cannot advertise the item below that price, no matter what they buy it at(dealer cost varies greatly with buying power).

ok thanks. that makes sense, and probably means my lhs will have it for the full retail price if i want to order one. that sucks coz at that price i may as well buy a wraith... i was wanting one for a scale build but might have to settle on an older ax10 or scx10 instead.

Back when our nifty economy was thriving (ha!!...ahem) retailers were all about selling things at full bore msrp(manufacturers suggested retail price). Now with so many online stores out there it's a common practice for stores to sell between msrp and map just to make money, and still get customers in their store. If its a family owned lhs, just remember to ask them if they can price match (insert retailer here) and bring a printed proof of said price with shipping. They may not match, but mom and pop will definitely sell you that shiny ready to assemble truck right there in front of you for a small discount. they know you want it, but they also know you can go online for cheaper. Happy hunting, kids. =)
