The Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy Builder's Kit is a "new from the ground up" design that any advanced RC enthusiast eager for cutting-edge crawling will appreciate. Its Currie F9 Portal Axles provide extra ground clearance at the diff pumpkin for the best crawling performance. With the included Dig transmission, you can also switch on the fly between 4WD and FWD directly from your 3-channel transmitter — locking the rear axle whenever you need the tighter turning radius of front drive power. The Capra features a realistic tube chassis design and metal gears everywhere, from the center transmission to the lockers and portal axles. It rides on licensed Raceline 3-piece molded beadlock wheels that can be fitted with whatever 1.9 tires you prefer. For pioneering performance in an RC trail buggy kit, choose the Axial Capra.

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
This is one of the best, most capable kits I’ve built. Capra is an apt name, this thing is a goat.

Absolutely Amazing crawler, one of the best kit builds I have done since the Element. Overall this is hands down one of the best rigs Axial has ever made. I have taken mine on multiple runs and it does super every time.

This is an amazing crawler. The build is easy enough although there are some odd spots in the instructions. It is also appropriately named as it does crawl like a mountain goat. If you have questions just look at a you tube vid on building. It has taken my UMG 10's place as my main go to for crawling.

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
So where do I begin as a review for the Axial Capra kit?
I have other Axial branded rigs and all were kits; Wraith, SCX10II Cherokee and UMG10, Yeti, all had their deviations in upgrades.
Yet the Capra was the easiest to build while keeping to stock components, albeit I forgone the DIG for 4WS. The new plastic composition is much better for my hands. I'm a heavy equipment mechanic and dealing with fasteners that require only the slightest bit of torque, tend to get stripped, not so much an issue with the Capra.
Boomracing alloy wheels, Pro Line Super Swampers TSL/SX, Crawler Innovations 4.75 (f/soft, r/med), Hobbywing AXE 2300, CC BEC, Reefs RC 422's, Spectrum SR515/DX5C, SSD Overdrive in the front axle, Hobbystar 3s 3700mah.
Took it out for the first run just a couple days ago... a first, no break downs or failures, I gave it fair chance to do so in 40 degree weather. 3 hours and only used 1 1/2 batteries.
Honestly I think this kit is the best one to come out yet for Axial, and the only drawback is for scale points is the lack of CMS.
Its a little wider than I had hoped for, still much better suited for my trails than the GMade GOM.
It's a keeper and sure to be a regular runner for me.
Not looking for views, but if interested in seeing it against a couple other rigs, it can be found on my channel, Terra Quest RC. https://youtu.be/Ce9r8f0l5qg

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
Axial hit the mark. Excellent quality and amazing crawler. I always liked the tubers. Love seeing the axels articulate. Just put soft/soft springs on and some weight in your wheels and you will be amazed.
The best thing is the you get all metal gears in the transmission and dig. Plus stainless steel links. Keep in mind one end of the links is revers threaded and the hole in the links are far making adjustments (just like a tie rod). This means you can make sure your axles are Parallel to one another and chassis.(if you’re really a perfectionist). I would definitely recommend the Capra. Good out of box performance.
Ps. Watch you tube videos on building it. Instructions are vague and sections are a bit incorrect. I’m not going to let that affect my review. I rarely use them after it’s Assembled. I Hope Axial will revisit the instruction manual. Well kit done otherwise.

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
The Capra is my favorite crawler build to date...even with all the omissions in the original manual that came in the kit. Being my only buggy model build to date, this outdoes all of my crawler trucks with ease. With its added width, some narrower climbs need to be altered; but, far more climbing challenges are now available too. Regardless, the Capra is awesome for its portal axel clearance and the ability to climb/descend steeper angles of rocks. Expect it should be even better when brass portals are available.

In my opinion this is one of the best kits on the market for the price. This is my second Capra kit build in less than 6 months. You must weight the front end for the Capra to reach its full potential. 60/40.

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
Absolutely loved putting this together with my grandson's assistance. The assembly instructions are great. I assume the issues with the instructions that others have brought up have been resolved. The end result is a really great crawler. We have done some mods since it was built. The Capra can be a little tippy out of the box, especially with my driving. I would recommend adding wheel weight right from the start instead of adding it later. Lowering the center of gravity moves this car from the great category to the fantastic category.

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
Out of my stable of rock racers, trail, crawlers, and even a rock bouncer (RBX10), this is by FAR my most reliable, fun to drive, and just the one truck I run on way way way more days than all of my others.


TL; DR
I can’t say enough good things about the ease of build, and have made these choices / recommendations:

1. Hobbywing AXE 540 XL rev 2 brushless sensored motor and ESC
2. Fly sky FS-GT5 controller and fly sky 6 channel receiver fits nicely .
3. Reefs 500 RAW steering servo
4. A blast on 3s: Dynamite Reaction 2 3700Mah 3s 50c LIPO
5. Spektrum RC SX107 dig servo (only regret and only one I could find that fits the cramped dîmensions. With carefully setting your endpoints, it will be ok. Make sure to leave BEC at 6 volt setting so it won’t burn it out!!

UPGRADES:
1. Vitavon aluminum front and rear axles
2. Treal aluminum transmission housing
3. RC screwz stainless screws

So far very disappointed. Rear axle assembly is junk! Had to modify shafts and smaller portal gears because they where too long and too wide. Have upgrades coming in a few weeks for both front and rear axles. Love my scx 3 but will not buy axial again.

Great kit, some issues with instructions, but went together very well. New Axial parts are a great improvement (although shocks are still lacking for a kit). This thing is a blast on the rocks. My new favorite crawler for technical rocks!

Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
I really like this kit. It seems they have updated the instruction manual as I had previously heard that it was not as accurate as it should be. When I did my build everything seemed to be up to date.

With that being said Horizon could have made the options for the micro servo a lil better. They could have supplied the servo saver parts with the kit instead of with the servo they recommended. Still with that being the biggest issue. The recommended servo does work very well.

I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone that is really interested in this truck. Just keep an eye on the parts you are getting for it. Maybe add a smaller pinion gear to your order as running 3S on a 35 turn motor does get a bit warm on the ESC.

A good truck and lots of fun.
Have fun and lots of it.

Just finished building this kit 2 days ago, super fun build. This is my 4th axial rig and first kit. Definitely won’t be my last, looking forward to my scx10.3 I would classify myself as an experienced Rc guy but think anyone with a decent skills set could put this thing together.
Amain processed the order quick and got it to me in great time, even with everything going on. Top notch service as always

The kit is a fun build, but beware the instruction manual is rubbish and riddled with errors. Find the updated manual online or you'll have trouble building the gearbox and driveshafts. The quality of the plastics and the suspension links is greatly improved compared to my other Axial build, the Unimog. I'm removing one star cause of the manual, but overall am quite happy.
