Axial has just stepped it up again with the recent release of the new Axial Trail Honcho kit, along with the scale accessories that are included and sold separately.
I could not wait to get a set of the new light buckets and the Tubular style front bumper included with the Honcho kit for my SCX10 TR.
AX80044 – SCX10 Tube Bumper Parts Tree
AX30530 – Front Skid Plates – Tube Style Bumper – Silver Aluminum (3pcs)
AX80045 – Axial Light Bucket Set (Black)
AX80049 – Axial LED Lens Set – Yellow/Clear (4pcs)
First thing I did was pick up a new unpainted Dingo body (AX4010R) and laid down a two tone paint scheme to freshen it up and give the TR a new look.
I also made myself a light bar for the top of the cage from some steel plate and 1/8″ solid rod brazed together. With room for 6 of the large lights on top I used two of the Black Axial light bucket sets in addition to the two lights that were on the TR bumper. This required 3 of the Axial LED Lens sets to fill all 6 lights.
Installing the Tube bumper was easy, just pulled out the 2 set screws from the original TR bumper and slid in the Tube bumper, then reinstalled the set screws. I decided to run a winch on this rig, so I cut a slot in the center aluminum bumper plate for the fair-lead to come through.
To make sure I got the most use out of the light kits I installed side markers (with the yellow lenses), tail lights, reverse lights, and the smaller buckets on the tube bumper. This left a few other light buckets that I am planning on mounting to the frame for rock lights.
I hope this helps show the wide range of uses for these new lights! I am loving this new look on the SCX10 TR.
