I have heard they are a good start but are requiring a fair amount of upgrades before they hold up to abuse well.

The rest of the parts will be more money then the actual crawler will be.

I would recomend looking around and buying a used ready to go crawler, they are a much better deal. Also stick with MOA(Motor on axle) unless you are going for the scaler side of things.

warcrc.org is the local board, they might be able to help you out a little more with that.

www.rccrawler.com/forum/ has a section devoted to the XR-10 and many others. Its a great resource.

Good luck its another expensive addictive hobby! :thumbsup: All new parts for a complete working comp crawler is going to run you $1000 bucks plus most likely closer to $1500, used is going to cost you alot less.

Very cool!

I dont have an xr-10 but from what I have heard the weak points are the knuckles, steering linkage, and gears. I belive upgrades are somewhat available but are hard to get right now. :bang:

Mine is a Hotracing MOA axle rig that is apart for some upgrades right now.

it looks like alot of people have had problems with th rear axle gear bearings failing witch makes the gears fails. iv found upgrades for this. but my main ? is how i would setup the front and rear dig, what radio to use and esc to acomplish that,

I have front and rear dig,

The easy way to do it, 3 ch radio with 3position 3rd channel. Punk Dig switch, tekin fx-r. Done for an MOA rig. It works great and its very simple.

There are a few ESCs out there or that are coming out that are suposed to have this built in. You can also run multiple ESC and a switch or somthing along those lines. Mine came with a punk in it and it works great!

The advantage of a bully based rig is the already beefed up parts. I have moved some really big rocks(40+lbs) with mine sometimes you get in a bind and a little abuse gets you out. The reason I would even try is the beefed up parts. Mine is not bully based but they are built up axles.

The xr-10 is new but if you wait a little while I am sure you can find one used. The advantage of the Axial rigs is all the plastic parts are cheap and easy to get, but I dont like replacing parts or having my rc fall apart on me in the middle of some fun.

Good luck :thumbsup:

i was an axial fan too, till i got a bully! it is tough to make a axial do the things a bully can and with less carnage. i have had my share of axials also, but from experience you'd love the bully. either way it is about having fun.
