Product Overview
As the first sport-utility vehicle from the Ford Motor Company, the Bronco has become an icon of off-road history. In 1965, race car builder Bill Stoppe assembled a team of first-generation Broncos for long-distance off-road competition. They competed in the Mint 400, Baja 500, and the Mexican 1000 (later renamed Baja 1000).

When developing the officially licensed SCX10 III Early Ford Bronco 4WD, Axial engineers pushed the boundaries on ready-to-run scale crawler features, functions, and performance. It includes the key components that have made the SCX10 III platform a success, and adds features never before found in an Axial RTR - or any other RC vehicle. Hands down, this is one of the most detailed models Axial has ever produced, and it's a perfect choice for brand new scalers, experienced rock crawling enthusiasts, and everyone in-between.

Inside and out, the scale realism is unprecedented - sure to impress the most devoted Ford fans. The polycarbonate Bronco body has a moulded tube cage with functional tube doors and hidden body mounts to preserve the scale lines. Fender flares and rock sliders that are true to the era also provide essential rock rash protection. Other authentic exterior details include the hood scoop, license plates, windshield wipers, and LED headlights and taillights. Many scale features are also functional. The front and rear plate bumpers, for example, are placed at the optimal approach angle for unobstructed climbing and crawling.



Interior detail is equally impressive. Inside the cab you'll find moulded seats, dashboard, shifter, foot pedals, and a steering wheel with column. Under the hood, a replica 5.0L V8 engine, transmission housing, and transfer case conceal the powerful Axial 35T motor for added protection and scale appearance.



The realism continues right to the ground. Retro-style 3-piece beadlock wheels complement the Early Ford Bronco's scale body while allowing tyres to be mounted, removed, and replaced easily without gluing. Licensed 1.9 replica Falken Wildpeak M/T tyres provide a solid grip for getting over rocks and trails. The roll cage has mounting tabs for additional lights and a full function spare tyre.



Underneath it all, the proven SCX10 III chassis delivers the superior crawling performance Axial drivers have come to expect. For a lower centre of gravity in addition to true scale looks, the Early Ford Bronco uses AR45 Straight Axles in the front and rear. The triangulated suspension geometry is tuned to work with the axles to reduce torque twist and further increase the scale looks. Tuneable oil-filled shocks help drivers find the best dampening rate and offer increased bore size with more fluid volume for the best performance.

Out of the box, the transmission is set up with a third-channel Front Dig function that lets you lock the rear axle from the transmitter for a tighter turning radius. Or you can configure it for two speeds with high and low gears by moving the included Micro Dig Servo to the two-speed linkage. To use both the two-speed transmission and Front Dig features, just add another servo and a radio with at least four channels (such as the 5-channel Spektrum DX5).

The fully assembled RTR vehicle comes with a Spektrum DX3 radio featuring exclusive DSMR technology for superior range, response, and interference resistance. It's also compatible with the Smart telemetry potential provided by the installed Spektrum Firma Smart 40A ESC/receiver. Using a Spektrum Smart LiPo pack, you can follow on-board battery capacity on the transmitter's voltage level indicator while driving with confidence in any weather and trail conditions - the electronics are protected by a waterproof design.

Early Ford Bronco Body

There's plenty of scale detail in the officially licensed Bronco body for Ford fans to admire, including a separately mounted windshield and functional tube doors. The body mounts are hidden for that "ultra scale" look. Optional body mounts are also provided for using aftermarket bodies.

The open interior design is packed with more scale details. Moulded seats, dashboard, steering wheel with column, shifters, and foot pedals are all included as standard features.


Exterior Details

Numerous exterior details add to the authentic look of the Early Ford Bronco body. Hood scoop, license plates, headlights, taillights, and windshield wipers are all included.

Front DIG Transmission & Two-Speed Option

Out of the box, the transmission is set up with a third-channel Front Dig function that lets you lock the rear axle from the transmitter. This acts like an anchor, allowing the front drive to pull the vehicle around in tight locations and dramatically increase maneuverability.
