Upgrades & Hop-ups for the Axial SCX24

Despite its small size, the Axial SCX24 has quickly established itself as a popular performer for fans of R/C crawling and trail driving. While this is a capable rig right out of the box, there are a few upgrades that you can make to allow your tiny truck to perform even better.

The Axial SCX24 Lineup:


The great thing about 1/24-scale R/C crawlers is that, with a little imagination, you can take just about any similar-sized static vehicle model kit and place the body on top of the SCX24 chassis. If you’re not a fan of the stock Deadbolt, Jeep Wrangler JLU, or Chevy C10 bodies, you can swap them out with a detailed hard-body for your next trail adventures.

Body Accessories

Along with the bodies themselves, here are a few add-on components to help you add more scale realism to your SCX24.

Chassis & Handling

While it’s an impressive performer out of the box, the SCX24 becomes a true contender with a few minor tweaks. Adding weight to the wheels and axles of this rig helps it stabilize and plant while navigating over off-road terrain.

Chassis Hardware & Tools

Whether you need spare parts or want to replace the stock hardware with rust-resistant bits, these pieces will help you do just that.

Motor & ESC

No matter what type of adventure you choose to take your SCX24 on, a smooth-running motor can help make all the difference. Here are some motor performance and ESC upgrades that can help you get the most performance out of your small-scale crawler.

Tires & Wheels

Some updates can add visual appeal to a radio-controlled vehicle, while others are purely for performance. With a new set of wheels and tires for your Axial SCX24, you can have the best of both worlds.

Scale Accessories

Part of the fun that is “scale R/C” centers around the realism of your rig. With a few detailed accessories, you can take the scale realism of your 1/24-scale crawler to the next level.
