  • Converting SCX10 to an RC4WD AX2 2 Speed Tranny

    Since the release of the AX2 2 Speed Transmission for Axial Wraith & SCX10/Honcho, it has been the tranny of choice for those that want to get the most out of their Wraith or SCX10 Trucks.

    With the offering of High and Low gears that are on either side of the stock Axial Tranny, you have the advantage of a crawling gear and a speed gear.

    Installation on these to platforms are straight forward with matching mounting hole patterns as the Axial skid plate.

    I wanted to take a moment and show you how easy it is with my installation in my new Axial Jeep Rubicon Unlimited RTR.

    First I wanted to show you the stock tranny installed:



    Here are some comparisons to the RC4WD AX2 2 Speed:



    Here you can see the length at the outputs...just about 26mm...

    First thing you want to do is remember that you are now screwing into aluminum so get four screws (10-12mm long) and add threadloc to them.



    Make sure they are tightened evenly to ensure that the case seats flush on the skid plate.

    And that is it. How much simpler can it be?

      Please note that this is installed on the SCX10 Rubicon Unlimited. This is the same wheelbase as the Honcho (12.5"). The Dingo Truck is on the Short Wheel Base (SWH = 11.5") so it may be a little tight. My guess is you will need to change the location of the battery tray or the ESC Box.

      The other great thing is with only gaining about 26mm on the back of the tranny, you can use the stock driveshafts but it's recommended with the new tranny's increased torque and high speed you may want to look at some RC4WD Punisher Shafts.
