The 1/10 scale, ready-to-run Axial SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler 4WD marks the next step forward in scale off-road action. While continuing to incorporate key components that have made SCX10 vehicles successful, the SCX10 III increases chassis realism with details that include a replica V8 engine to house the installed brushed motor. It's mated to a realistic transmission housing and transfer case, like a 1:1 vehicle. The RTR also comes complete with the Spektrum DX3 3-channel 2.4GHz DSMR transmitter and Firma 40A ESC/receiver — for a radio system that's ready to give you the advantages of innovative Spektrum Smart technology.
Out of the box, the SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler transmission features a third-channel DIG function that lets you lock the rear axle from the transmitter for front wheel drive and a tighter turning radius. As an alternative, you can set up the vehicle with a two-speed transmission instead and select between high and low speeds. If you'd like to use both the two-speed transmission and DIG function, just add another servo and a radio with at least four channels (such as the 5-channel Spektrum DX5).
The SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler uses portal axles to improve performance by increasing the ground clearance and reducing torque twist. Its standard battery tray accepts full-size "standard" LiPo or NiMH packs. There's space on the side rails as well for drivers who prefer smaller packs. Inner fenders and floor sides hide internal components that would usually be visible from the side of the chassis.
The chassis is topped off with a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited four-door body that includes a roll cage, front hood vents and cowl, windshield wipers, mirrors, door handles and other molded-in details, plus a detailed interior and LED lighting. New taller and wider, officially licensed Nitto Trail Grappler tires on 3-piece beadlock wheels add more scale realism and more grip on dirt, rocks, and all other off-road trails.
With the Spektrum DX3 radio's exclusive DSMR technology, you'll enjoy the superior range, response, and interference resistance of exclusive DSMR technology. Together with the installed Firma Smart 40A ESC/receiver, it also offers the advantages of exclusive Spektrum Smart technology. Install a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery and you can view vehicle battery capacity at a glance on the DX3 transmitter's voltage level indicator. Outfit the DX3 with the optional BT2000 Bluetooth module and download the free Spektrum Dashboard app to your smart device, and you're also ready to use Smart real-time telemetry — without needing on-board sensors or modules.
Scale features including a replica V8 engine, transmission housing, and transfer case all cover and protect the included brushed motor while adding to the realistic appearance.
The SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler has a standard battery tray that accepts full-size "standard" LiPo or NiMH packs. There's space on the side rails, too, for drivers who prefer smaller size packs.
The transmission arrives set up with a DIG function for locking the rear axle from the transmitter, giving you the tight turning radius of front wheel drive on demand — Micro Dig Servo (SPMSSX107) included! You can also choose to set up the vehicle for a two-speed transmission instead, by taking the included Micro Dig Servo and moving it to the two-speed linkage. The transmission also includes a full set of ball bearings and all-metal internal gears for strength and durability.
Portal Axles like those found in some full-size off-roaders provide higher ground clearance and reduce the torque on other drivetrain components for improved performance.
JLU Wrangler wheelbase is adjustable to let you choose the size of your chassis. The chassis is stiffer than the previous SCX10 II chassis, for less frame flexing and more precise suspension movement.
The suspension geometry is based on the SCX10 II but refined slightly for the new chassis layout. The front suspension has been optimized to reduce bump steer, while the rear 4-link reduces torque twist.
The SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler body's fender liners and floor sides hide internal components that would usually be visible from the side of the chassis.
Legendary in the off-road world, these officially licensed KMC XD Machete wheels are molded in black and include stunning scale details. Because they're 3-piece beadlock wheels, tires can be mounted, removed and replaced easily without gluing.
The R35 compound Nitto Trail Grappler tires included with the SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler are taller and wider (4.7 x 1.7), providing more ground clearance and more grip on dirt, rocks, and all other off-road trails.
The oil-filled shocks have hard anodized, threaded bodies, a single coilover spring, plus an emulsion-style cap with screw for easier rebuilds. The shocks are tunable for achieving the best dampening rate. Their increased bore size also creates more fluid volume for better performance.
The included Spektrum DX3 radio features exclusive DSMR technology for superior range, response, and interference resistance. It's also fully compatible with the Smart telemetry potential provided by the vehicle's installed Spektrum Firma Smart 40A ESC/receiver.
With the Firma Smart 40A ESC/receiver and DX3 transmitter, you're equipped to experience the telemetry advantages of exclusive Spektrum Smart technology. Install a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery to follow vehicle battery capacity on the transmitter's voltage level indicator. Drive with confidence in any weather and trail conditions — the electronics are also protected by a waterproof design.
The scale Jeep Wrangler Unlimited body mirrors its full-size counterpart with a detailed interior for "super scale" looks. The interior has a molded roll cage, steering wheel, and driver head. There are many molded scale details on the body, too: front radiator/light buckets; front hood vents; front cowl; windshield wipers; mirrors; door handles; fuel door; and spare tire.
