The Axial SCX24 Deadbolt RTR 1/24 Scale Mini Crawler is the first Axial® off-roader in 1/24 scale. At less than 8" long, it's ideal for indoor fun, but performs so well, its equally suited to outdoor adventures as well. Even new drivers will be well-equipped to tackle tough climbs and rough trails. Like it's SCX10 big brother, the SCX24 uses plenty of steel components - from the C-channel frame rails to the front and rear axles and dogbones. Offering ready to run simplicity, scale looks, and confident handling on any trail, the SCX24 has the strength to keep pushing onward and upward.

The SCX24 chassis features a three-link front and four-link rear suspension for realistic handling. The combination of coil-over shocks and durable plastic suspension links delivers Axial-worthy crawling performance even at this small scale. Plus, worm gear axles provide high ground clearance with a low gear ratio that helps to reduce torque twist.

Powered by an included 180-size motor and LiPo battery, the SCX24 Deadbolt shows off competence and charisma on the trails. The shrunk down Deadbolt body provides the classic stance, bulging hood, realistic driver figure, and molded roll cage with realistic light bar that makes the 1/10 Deadbolt a performer - and the realism continues right down to the licensed KMC XD229 Machete Crawl wheels wrapped in Nitto Trail Grappler tires.

Adding even more to its beginner appeal, the SCX24 Deadbolt comes 100% complete and ready to run. Everything required for action is in the box: assembled and finished vehicle; Axial 2-channel 2.4GHz radio system with servo and ESC/receiver unit; Dynamite® 88T brushed electric motor and 350mAh 2S 7.4V LiPo battery; USB LiPo charger; and even four AA cells for the transmitter!

Axial SCX24 Deadbolt 1/24 RTR Scale Mini Crawler (Red)
Not my first R/C but it was my first crawler. I liked the idea of going with something small so I could use it around my backyard and house. In short, this is quite an awesome machine for it's size and price! On a full charge, it seems like I can go for about 20-30 minutes before needing a charge.

- Small but powerful. The SCX24 is a very capable crawler and has plenty of power to get the job done.
- Easy to maintain. So far, all I have had to do is keep it clean. If you have experience with RCs, taking care of this is a piece of cake. If you don't, it won't take long for you to get the hang of it.
- LEDs in bumper are a cool touch. Haven't done a bunch of running around at night but testing it out, the lights are very bright. Think of them more like headlights as they just project forward.
- Decent transmitter (Controller) out of the box. No need to adjust anything, just put batteries in and run it. Controls seem accurate and response time is very good considering it is just a cheap model.
- Water resistant. I have run this thing over a dozen times into muddy water puddles that submerged the bottom half of the crawler. So far no issues but from all of the reading I have done, it is best you don't think this is water proof and use good judgement.

- LiPo Charger is absolute trash. The first time I went to use it, it was dead on arrival. You will know instantly when you plug the battery in and you see the red led flashing. Amain did replace it and the second unit worked. However, you will want to buy something right away. There is 2-3s Reedy charger that is highly recommended. I ended up going to Amazon and buying a cheap 2-3s charger and it has done a great job through 20 charges so far ( <--$17 and it works awesome).
- Motor reliability. This is strictly from my experience so yours may vary. My SCX runs just fine in forward and for about 20 minutes, reverse works just fine as well. However, after about 20-25 minutes, going in reverse is problematic. It goes from being the same speed as going forward to half speed and not a smooth power transfer. It goes jerky. Between Amain support and Horizon Hobby, there has been no consensus on why. I have a second SCX24 that I swapped ESC and battery from and my red SCX24 continues to exhibit the same behavior. Swapping my ESC and battery to the second SCX24 showed that the motor on the second car ran normally. This could only mean that something is wrong with the motor. I would swap and Horizon Hobby is sending a new one but it's out of stock, so who knows...

I would give this a 4/5, even with the motor issue. This little guy has been a blast to drive around and is a great way to get into the hobby or train a younger driver how to work a crawler. There are a lot of parts out there for this thing so you can go wild with customizing it but it is not needed. If you really wanted to though, I would say start with weight kits because I can see how that would provide a better crawl experience, less tip over.

Again, if you are adding this to your cart, you are doing a good thing but don't forget an aftermarket charger. From all of the reading I have done, you are literally 70/30 on a dead charger in that box so screw the heart ache and get a good one now.

So much fun !
Car is larger than it appears in YouTube videos.
Radio has High/Middle/Low Throttle switch. Like shifting into hi/low gear.
Max Speed: 1 mph with Molly Grease in the differentials. (Molly Grease Not Included)
Car is faster than I expected for its small size.
Climbs very well. Good side angle crawling.

Axial SCX24 Deadbolt 1/24 RTR Scale Mini Crawler (Red)
Very fun. I got my son (11) one for Christmas and decided to get another for after Xmas races in the basement. I wouldn't call it high performance, but they have some surprisingly decent climbing abilities. I actually want to do a few mods for fun...they are a great time. I have three kids so I may pick up another so they can all race at once.

The only issue I have is the battery and charger system. So...I give the rig itself 5 stars but the battery system...3? We did the initial charge up and all was good, ripped around and had fun. Charged a second time and off we went. I must have made a mistake and left the battery plugged into the car overnight, although it was turned off. The next day both batteries were toast and the chargers could not restore them. One charger flat out broke and the other sorta did a slow death; from what I read online, they seem pretty fragile. Anyway, went off to the local hobby shop and they confirmed both batteries were totally discharged and dead. I picked up a small Dynamite charger and did a brief Nimh charge on the Lipo's to get them to accept a Lipo charge. Then I balanced charged up both batteries and they work great. Success! Now they work awesome again. The batteries take a good charge, balance out, and have worked awesome with plenty of run time. I monitor the batteries better and am sure to unplug everything etc. So, I'm sure I caused the batteries to totally discharge originally...but it is just something to be aware of. Link to the Dynamite charger is below. As long as you don't sink the batteries like I did early on you should have a great time!

I was skeptical about purchasing a 1/24th scale rig as others in the past have not been super great. Boy was I wrong! This thing is awesome, has great low end for crawling, tires are bigger than most 24th scale trucks. Super fun truck and can't wait to modify to make my own. Thanks Amain for the fast shipping and great service!

Great little trail truck! Fun for in and outdoors.Only issue Ive noticed was it doesnt have enough down low weight. It easily flips over but that is expected due to its size. A few upgrades when available would help out for sure.

I've been in the hobby for a long time, and have always been trying to combine static model truck bodies with the RC crawlers on the market. The SCX24 has so many mods available that the possibilities are endless! Check out this truck I made based on the SCX24. It was a 1/16th Revell Jeep CJ-7 Golden Hawk. Not only does it look good, but it can really crawl!

Amazing little crawler!!! really capable right out of the box and there are tons of upgrades for it. I had a Losi micro rock crawler years ago and needed work almost right out of the box, the Axial SCX24 none so far and been crawling everyday on my home made track and nothing has broken or even looks funny, solid so far. A main has made it super easy to order and is now my go to online hobby store ( two thumbs up)

The scale is spot on. I haven't driven it yet. I tore it all apart as soon as it came in, to install a bunch of upgrades. So I can't give a proper review on this item.

An awesome crawler with excellent capabilities. Very detailed construction with many upgrade options. Looking forward to customizing and driving the scx24 Deadbolt on my backyard crawler course.Don't let it's small size worry you as it just may embarrass your friends with larger rigs.

I would choose another scx24 if performance is important to you. This looks great but does not sidehill at all and is very tippy. Heavy, tall body. I'm waiting for wheels to be back in stock to add weight and most importantly get tires with foam. Great low speed control and articulation.

My son loves this truck, we bought two of them, it came with everything you need to get started. He easily uses it inside the house for instant fun. With some tweaking, he has put other toy truck bodies on this frame. He can take it apart and modify it, great for creative thinkers. The cats are faster than this toy which is a bonus :)

AMain is a great company to buy from and they have great customer service. My 1/24 scale crawler is a fantastic little vehicle. It’s a blast to play with. My battery charger did go bad after two charges but AMain replaced easily. All it took was a phone call and a few answered questions. The phone hold time was long, but I guess it’s because it’s the holidays. Laura was very helpful and polite. Dynamite needs to trash this charger and come up with another more reliable one or Axial needs to find another Brand. I recommend this company for rc cars and accessories.
