Press Release Axial Racing:
For extreme off-roading with more “Get me out of here!” grip, six wheels are better than four. See what new territory you can explore with the 1/10 scale Axial® UMG 6X6 RTR. Built around the proven SCX10™ II chassis, the UMG 6X6 delivers class-leading RC crawler performance in a convenient, ready-to-run package — only a battery and charger are required. The military-style body captures the look of full-size 6X6 trucks, and scale features include 1.9 military-spec wheels and tires, a working spare, and built-in mounting positions for front and rear LED lights (four LED lights included!). The performance on dirt and gravel trails does thrilling justice to the vehicle’s full-scale, all-terrain inspiration. Waterproof electronics keep the action alive over snow, mud, and more. With its durable SCX10 II metal-geared transmission, rugged AR44™ axles, full ball bearings, and more, the Axial® SCX10 II UMG 6X6 lets even first-time RC drivers keep on going when the going gets tough!
The ready-to-run Axial® SCX10™ II UMG 6X6 delivers realistic performance with an authentic military feel — enhanced by this scale crew cab body with hinged rear cage for quick chassis access. The aggressive approach angle created by the vehicle’s front end design enables the UMG 6X6 to take on steep inclines, and the long 17.3” (439mm) wheelbase helps with agility in challenging terrain.
For realism that continues when the sun goes down, outfit your UMG 6X6 with lights — a total of eight mounting locations are built-in for easy LED installation. Four LED lights are included - two white LED lights are mounted in the front bumper, and two red LED tail lights are mounted in the rear of the bed. NOTE: Additional LED lights sold separately.
The realistic molded plastic grille features details such as a radiator, an embossed Axial® logo, two clear marker lenses, and two headlight lenses. Additional scale details can be found throughout the body for an authentic military look.
Tandem AR44™ rear axles with a high pinion design provide the toughness needed for rugged off-road trails. Universal joint axles, helical cut internal gears and high-quality bearings are all standard equipment. The ring gear/locker is a single-unit piece made of strong sintered metal, and the pinion is CNC cut for durability.
- 1.9 MW19™ Beadlock Wheels
- 1.9 MT45 Tires (S30 Compound)
- AR44™ Universal Axle Set
- Steel Suspension Links
- Adjustable Shocks
- All Metal Gears
The ultra compact transmission allows for a wide range of gearing choices. The overall ratio can be adjusted using different pinion and spur gear choices allowing super high speed or competition level crawling speed. The new transmission housing design still retains the basic function of the original transmission but in a new more scale looking case.
- Final drive ratio (FDR) 42.00 – Original SCX10 was 33.06
- All metal internal gears!
- Scale looks – silver color looks like cast aluminum
- Better mounting points at the base of the transmission – no more stripped screws!
By creating the bed from two pieces rather than as a single piece, Axial® engineers have been able to give it much greater depth. Two working LED tail lights with red plastic tail light lenses are mounted in the rear of the bed.
