Nikko 1:6 hummer H1 vs axial scx10: insane hill climb videos
« on: November 17, 2012, 22:22:18 »
Me and my buddy took our trucks out to climb some steep hills and the nikko absolutely rocked. Usually a fully built hobby crawler will out wheel any toy grade truck but the hummer went sooo many places the scx10 couldnt. Some of the climbs were near straight up while others were just plain difficult for any truck. There are some spots that i made up with the hummer that neither my full built scx10 or traxxas summit have ever been able to make up. Best part is that the hummer does it all with only 5mph of wheel speed

These videos are for all you radio shack/nikko fans and anyone who thinks a nikko cant hang with a hobby car

The climbs are much more steep than they appear in the videos





The scx10 couldnt make it up this climb even with a running start

This climb is more than 1.5 feet tall and basically straight up

Neither scx10's or the summit can climb this one

This climb couldnt be done be either the summit or the scx10 on 2.2s. The summit needed a running start in high gear and the scx10 needed paddle tires and 3 times my wheel speed to make it

Haha yeah they grip really well. They just kept digging on the hill with really soft dirt. Most the other trucks would sink to the axles and be done but they wouldnt quit pulling.

Rc4wd.com sells them for 40 each and are available in 2, 3 and 4:1 but 4:1 is a must. My battery life was 2 hours plus when i made all those videos. Running just a 5400mah on a 12lb truck with 2 motors thats incredible but also the torque is crazy.
