Axial R/C Inc. is extremely pleased to partner with Randy Slawson, Bomber Fabrication's owner and two-time King of the Hammers rock racing champion! For this rig, we took everything we learned from building the industry's first all plastic tube chassis rig and drew upon mountains of inspiration from enthusiasts to go next level! The Axial RR10™ Bomber is not just another plastic tube chassis Wraith update - it merely adds to our line of successful 2.2 rock racing vehicles. While visually this rig is a race replica of the Bomber Fab KOH rock racing rig, one of the unseen features is the front mounted battery tray under the hood making for easy access and weight right where you asked for it! This makes swapping the batteries in this rig a quick and easy process, especially for those enthusiasts participating in the ultra endurance series within Axialfest! The skid plate provides a centralized location for the electronics with clean wire routing and an RR10™ specific transfer case for optimal driveline efficiency. We've also included a full set of BFGoodrich® BAJA T/A® KR2 tires along with a spare in the back, wrapped around officially licensed Walker Evans Racing wheels. We've included a variety of shock mounting points for running dual shock setups and more suspension tuning options. For additional rear suspension tuning, you'll find a sway bar mount connected to the cage, under the fuel cell (sway bar sold separately). Officially licensed aluminum King Shocks feature precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Standard features include durable front and rear WB8 HD Wildboar™ driveshafts, front and rear AR60 axles, a dual slipper clutch, Hi-Lo transmission with all metal internal gears, a 3-channel radio system, realistic scale details including molded driver figures, three pairs of helmets, molded shock reservoirs, a fuel cell, Bomber Fabrication body panels and graphics, and a fully licensed scale tube chassis.
RANDY SLAWSON - BOMBER FABRICATION
At the age of 12, Randy Slawson was first introduced to the off-road lifestyle by his uncle. Trips to the mountains for the sole purpose of exploration and camping became one of his favorite pastimes. As he grew older; and of driving age, his interest in off-road vehicles evolved into a passion. Upon moving from Oregon to Southern California, he discovered the desert and all of its beauty. He naturally migrated toward work in the off-road industry. After working several years for a sand car manufacturer, he became one of the lead instructors at the top metal fabrication school in southern California. His off-road passion took a turn toward the rocks, where he was heavily focused on trying to conquer the rock crawling "Hammer" trails of Johnson Valley. His skill set and equipment had evolved rapidly, so did the weekends' goals. His target shifted from being able to complete the trails, to seeing how fast he could complete the trails. This evolutionary process armed Randy with all the necessary skills and equipment to compete in the races held in Johnson Valley. Competing on a shoe string budget, he learned to respect the equipment, yet push it to its very limit. In 2010, Randy started Bomber Fabrication; a Southern California based metal fabrication business. His Bomber chassis are heavily respected in the rock racing community due to their simplicity to work on, their striking good looks and undeniable success in the desert. He has been named "King of the Hammers" twice, once in 2013 and again in 2015.
BFGOODRICH® BAJA T/A® KR2 TIRES - S30 COMPOUND
In the full-size world of off-road racing, BFGoodrich® tires have proven to be the 'go-to' tire for numerous racing victories, including Randy Slawson piloting them to victory at the 2013 and 2015 King of the Hammers. Axial's version of this tire captures the same aggressive look and provides remarkable performance on a wide variety of surfaces. This is the perfect tire for this style of vehicle due to its high level of performance and diversity.
KING ADJUSTABLE ALUMINUM SHOCKS
The included aluminum King Shocks feature precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies and are threaded for quick ride height adjustments and pre-load tuning ability. The rear shocks are mounted on the links rather than at the axle, allowing for more suspension travel which is better for high speed handling.
