Default Axial UMG10 by JUSTINART24

I had a bunch of Axial SCX10 parts laying around so picked up some UMG10 body parts, this truck is more of a buddy loaner truck and sometimes will be used for Class One at WARCRC events. I will be trying to keep this one pretty stock and not much metal work or etc but more of just a "fun driver".

I made some links for my AxialRacing UMG10 build and I am trying out the Vanquish Products aluminum rod ends. Since the rod ends are 4mm thread, I picked up some 4mm thread rod on amazon for pretty cheap. I am using 1/4” stainless steel tubing to cover the threaded rod. There was a little slop between the 1/4” sleeve and 4mm threaded rod so I cut down some 3/16” .014” wall tubing to make it a tight fit. I like to use sleeved threaded rod because its pretty reusable if I want to reduce the length of the link or etc. Any who, trying something new to me was pretty fun.

A little update on my Axial Racing UMG10 loaner truck, I got most of the wiring wrapped up. As you can see in the pics I am running a RC4WD AX2 2SP transmission, locked out in first gear for some low end crawling with a 9t pinion. For the ESC, I am running a Castle Creations Sindwinder 4 and for around 70 bucks it’s a pretty good value with even a built in fan. I am running a Team Brood Racing 35t brushed motor. I usually run higher end Brood brushes motors but this budget friendly 30 motor crawls really well too. For the battery, I am running a 1300mah 3S lipo LiPO, I dont run anything bigger to keep the weight low and forward. As for the steering servo I am running a Hitec HS-7954SH. I pretty much only run Hitec because I haven’t had really any trouble with the ones I have used over the years and to only stock the Hitec servo arms.

I am working on my loaner Axial Racing UMG10 truck and started some painting tonight. I was not looking forward to cutting out the headlight holes but used my leather punch to start the cut out. It ended up working out pretty good.

Here are a few pics right after I first complete the build.

I picked up a RC4WD (CCHand) Unimog grill for my Axial Racing UMG10. It came with a nice template that I put on the inside and used a blade to scribe the trim line on the outside of the body. To cut the holes I used Dremel with an abrasive bit to carve out the hole. Next step is to paint the grill and new body.

I ended up just spraying the white CCHand grill with some primer to make not so bright.

I had to get another body shell and again just painted it with Tamiya PS-5 black paint.
