The Axial SCX10 II UMG10 1/10 Scale Rock Crawler Kit was developed for builders that prefer to add their own details. The UMG10 starts with the proven SCX10 II kit as its foundation. The high performance SCX10 II kit platform is combined with the unique UMG10 cab forward body, bed cage and interior to give a realistic, yet aggressive, military inspired look. Plus, a host of included scale parts allow the freedom to add personal touches, and build the rig the way you want.
Axial also includes military-style MW19 1.9 beadlock wheels with MT45 1.9 tires in R35 compound, and a functional spare tire to finish off the look of this high performance, adventure ready kit. The off-road performance that has made the SCX10 II a class leader, carries on in this short wheelbase package. Add the radio and electronics you want, and build a custom, one of a kind machine that stands out on the trail.
CAB FORWARD BODY DESIGN
The kit comes with a realistic, military based, cab forward body. The aggressive approach angle created by its front end design enables the UMG10™ to take on steep inclines. It's 11.4" (288mm) wheelbase helps with agility in challenging terrain.
REAR CAGE DESIGN
The body and cage are bolted together. The hinge at the rear of the chassis allows you to tilt the body and cage up and out of the way. The spare tire carrier and hinged design that allows easy access to the battery and on-board components.
Detail your UMG10 kit's interior with the parts provided. Choose from three hat styles for the driver's plastic molded head. Shift levers, a steering wheel, and a variety of decals are also included.
A total of eight mounting locations for LEDs are found throughout the vehicle. Four lights can be mounted in the front grille, two in the front bumper, and two in the rear frame plate. (LED lights are not included)
The SCX10™ transmission mimics a real transmission with a bell housing, oil pan and 4X4 transfer case. By placing the transfer case lower in the chassis and centering the driveshafts with the axle input housings, Axial created a more efficient driveline with improved driveshaft angles to reduce stress on moving parts. The transmission also includes a full set of ball bearings and all-metal internal gears.
- Transfer case design helps keep the driveshafts centered and as low as possible in the chassis
- Final drive ratio range 33.69 – 54.15 with available spur and pinion gear combinations
- Comes with 56T spur gear and 15T pinion / 32-pitch for durability
- All-metal internal gears provide strength and durability
- Final drive ratio (FDR) 40.44 with a range from 33.69 - 54.15
- Scale looks mimic a full-size transmission and transfer case
- 2-Speed Gear Set is available (not included - AXI31440)
AR44™ SINGLE PIECE HI-PINION AXLES
The AR44™ axle features a high pinion gear set for a much lower gear ratio than most cars, plus a smaller pumpkin and added strength. The gear set helps to reduce the torque twist often associated with smaller gear sets. The axle itself retains the durability associated with the SCX10, despite being delivered in a smaller axle housing.
MW19™ 1.9 BEADLOCK WHEELS
The UMG10 kit features MW19 1.9 beadlock wheels, with a spare that you can mount in the bed cage – five in total. It's a three piece wheel design, utilizing six screws which help the wheel firmly grip the MT45 tires. The wheel nut cap resembles a receptacle for a simulated central tire inflation system. The wheels are molded in black plastic and feature a standard 12mm wheel hex hub.
MT45™ 1.9 TIRES
Keeping the truck on course and climbing difficult terrain are a set of MT45 tires molded in our sticky R35 compound rubber. The big block symmetrical tread pattern provides plenty of grip for climbing steep obstacles.
- 4.6" x 1.4" / 1.9 (117mm x 35.6mm)

*** I strongly recommend downloading the online manual as there have been corrections, especially for the body, that make a better overall build.
Chassis: 4 out of 5
Overall quality is good, but not outstanding. Both the TRX4 and Sawback have better fit and finish of the parts. It went together well, but not as well as the TRX4 which stands out for its overall quality. The frame is quite flexible and will be interesting to see on the trail. Shocks are better than I remember from ones I rebuilt for people over time, only one has a tiny hint of a leak. I recommend shimming the crown wheel and pinions for improved mesh, there is ample room to do it but shims are not included in the kit.
Body: 4.5 out of 5
Great level of detail, and after a good bit of trimming all the parts fit together quite well. The molded dimples line up with their holes. It’s a more tedious job than building the chassis but went together easily enough. The complete body is heavier than I thought it would be but looks amazing, and the mounting system is one of the great vehicle highlights. It does need sliders though as the "tanks" will take a beating in rock gardens.
Electronics: Holmes 35t, HW 1080, Protek 370TBL servo, Sanwa MX-6 receiver and SMC 5000 3S pack
Trail Test: 4 out of 5
The kit tires are surprisingly good, especially on rocks. On dirt climbs they struggled a bit but are still impressive. The truck moves very well on the flat and over moderate terrain. The short wheelbase makes some obstacles tough, and others easy. Clearance is OK but not great, the pumpkin can grab sometimes, but the bumper is a highlight, not grabbing on tight approaches. The body forces a high roll center and this is the biggest impediment on steep climbs, but was still better than I predicted. Out on the trail with a stock TRX4 Bronco showed that the UMG10 is good but not great, the Bronco handling more difficult sections a good bit better. Sliders will be a necessary upgrade. Gearing is right on with the 35t and 3S.
I like the truck. The body is fun and the performance is quite decent for an out-of-the-box setup. I’m going to tinker with it a bit and likely move it to a Class-1 4.19 setup for fun crawls.
The kit itself went together beautifully, nice mating of surfaces and seems to be a little bit more durable, as in less flex of the usual plastic given.
A UniMog, the arguments abound as to should or shouldn't have them, just remember there are 1:1 aftermarket portals and delete.
I chose the Deadloc Racing portal add-on. So my axles not being stock, I can't compare. Just know that if you do decide it should have portals to tickle that spot in your brain, it will raise the cg significantly. You can lower it back down with either adjustable shock plates on the mount or go with a shorter shock. The price to be paid is that you will lose articulation, differential travel hits the panhard preventing shock full compression.
As it is, it crawls better than I ever expected it too.
Love the new tires as well, CI 4.5" soft front and medium rear work fantastic.
