Axial Jeep Wranglers, Cherokees Go Big on Pint-size Trail
Vegas may not have a lot of off-roading inside the city, but Horizon Hobby brought a little Jeep trail to get your fix at SEMA.
SEMA 2018 heated up the Vegas Strip with plenty of Jeeps ready to hit the road, and a few wanting to explore the desert sands outside the city limits.
Of course, we can’t do that under the big tent at SEMA 2018, and there are few off-roading opportunities in Sin City itself. However, we did find the next best thing: an RC Jeep trail created by the fine folks of Champaign, Illinois’ Horizon Hobby.
This is one trail anyone of any age can play upon, with lots of rickety bridges, bumpy boards and logs to crawl over, and plenty of elevation changes to navigate.
And how is this trail navigated? With radio-control Jeeps like this SCX10 II 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited CRC rock crawler by Axial. These aren’t your RC cars from Radio Shack. Axial’s Jeeps are built to handle any terrain, have full-time all-wheel drive, and are nearly two-feet long.
Axial had a few of their off-roading RC Jeeps and trucks available for conquering Horizon Hobby’s trail, which only give us ideas on what we’d do with our life-size projects.
If there’s any display at SEMA 2018 that brings the kid out in you, Horizon Hobby and Axial have it on lock. We certainly can’t wait to spend our casino winnings on these little Jeep Wranglers and Cherokees.
