Let’s talk about LIPO-SAFETY-4-AXIALFEST2016! We will be in a camp ground with lots of wood, in the middle of the woods! Wood burns and burns fast! The Fire Department is 10 miles away. You will have 1000+ Neighbors within a 400-acre area of your camp site. Don’t think just about just you, THINK ABOUT EVERYONE – THE CAMPGROUNDS – THE MOUNTAIN SIDE!!!

1] DO NOT CHARGE UNATTENDED!
Fire spreads when its not being fought.

2] LIPO SACKS ARE NOT ENOUGH!
They only “mitigate” the fire thus require more than just the sack! Find the right LiPo sack for you: HERE

3] ARM YOUR SACK with an AMMO can.
Lipo sack inside the ammo can is about the best portable way.

4] KEEP FIRE EXTINGUISHERS VISIBLY ON HAND!
Fire Extinguishers should be on every camp table where there is battery charing going on!!! Matter of fact, Fire Extinguishers should just be on every table! THESE FIT IN YOUR BACKPACK! Think of it as your on-board fire extinguisher.

5] READING is KNOWLEDGE.

John Schultz’s Winning Deadbolt

JohnSchultz_WP_Title_IMG

Fresh off the tarmac from the 2015 No Limit RC Monster Truck World Finals held at Dennis Anderson’s Diggers Dungeon in Poplar North Carolina, John Schultz, Axial Ambassador, dropped off his custom built Deadbolt Monster Truck conversion at Axial HQ for a closer look.  It’s important to note, Solid Axle was the biggest class in attendance, 70 trucks raced and a total of 80 trucks present, many of which featured Axial’s AR60 axles.

Upon first peek it might be hard to spot the Deadbolt backbone, but upon a second glance it’ll be more obvious, as will the dusting of Wraith and Yeti parts. We’ll be featuring a more in-depth build report on the truck shortly. In the meantime, here’s a quick parts list and detailed photos of the truck. Lets not forget photos, CLICK HERE for more photos.
