Kits

Some Axial radio control rigs are available in kit form, which means you can enjoy the rewards that come from building your own vehicle, equipping it however you prefer, and watching it take on the trails like a champ! Through the process of building one of our RC kits, you’ll also learn the skills you need to maintain it properly and make successful repairs and upgrades.

KITS

Axial® radio control kits are perfect for anyone who enjoys tinkering with mechanical devices and learning how they work. Much of the engineering inside our RC kits closely follows that of full-size off road vehicles, reproduced in a smaller scale.

An RC kit describes any radio control vehicle that requires at least some assembly and additional equipment before it can be operated. Axial RC kits leave certain choices up to you. You may decide what power system to install or what radio equipment to use. These decisions have a major influence on vehicle performance and experienced RC hobbyists often like to make them for themselves. Other components that typically may or may not come with a kit include a finished body, wheels, and tires.

Choosing an RC kit from Axial gives you the opportunity to enjoy two model hobby activities with one purchase. First, you assemble your own working RC rig from supplied parts and instructions. It’s challenging, rewarding, and educational. Once you’ve completed assembly, you can look forward to years of driving your new rig on the trails, as well as learning how to upgrade it with optional parts for custom looks and performance.

RC kit building has some advantages that ready-to-run (RTR) RC vehicles do not, depending on the skills you want to learn. Kit assembly gives you a thorough builder’s understanding of how your radio control rig works. That knowledge prepares you well to troubleshoot any problems, and if anything breaks, you’ll know how to fix it. You’ll usually spend less money on your initial kit purchase compared to buying a fully equipped RTR vehicle. But remember that you won’t be able to run the kit without additional purchases, nor will you be able to start driving it right away.

If you’re a new RC car hobbyist, you’ll want to have experienced help available when building your first Axial kit. You’ll also need the appropriate tools, which are identified in the kit instruction manuals, and enough workshop space to spread out parts and tools without having to pick everything back up until you’re finished. Of course, you’ll also need the free time to build, and enough interest and mechanical aptitude to keep you motivated if you run into a snag or two.

Although our RC rig kits don’t provide instant gratification, they do give you valuable experience that you’ll use with every other RC model in your future.
