THE RIGHT SHOES
In addition to having the proper footwear for walking the
trails, it’s also a good idea to outfit your rig with tires best
suited for the terrain. The Axialfest mix of loose dirt and
pebbles, high-traction jagged rocks, smooth low-traction
rocks, wet rocks, and mud when crossing rivers is the
perfect recipe for an all-terrain tire. It’s always worth taking
a couple of sets with different tread patterns and rubber
compounds to test.
The black aluminum 6-lug hex adapter was meant to fit the brass caliper weights, while providing
scale looks at the same time.

I ran into the Pro-Line team at Axialfest, and they were kind
enough to outfit my Axial SCX10 with a set of their newest
crawler tire: the BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX, mounted on trick
billet aluminum Pro-Forge Faultline 1.9-inch wheels, finished
in gunmetal. Enhanced performance was immediately
noticeable, and the added weight of the brass brake rotor
weights let me climb like a champ.
New shoes and ready to go. Added traction was immediately noticeable and the gun metal aluminum
wheels looked awesome!
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
Last year was my first Axialfest and my mind was officially blown. Just when I
wondered how this event could possibly get better, I was once again blown away
with how thoroughly fun it is to attend. On top of camping in the pristine Tahoe
National Forest, you get access to all the trails you can handle, and you get to do it
all with your family or friends. Signing up is only $49 for adults, $24 for ages 6-15, and
free for kids five and under. With such a great deal, you’re going to have a hard time
finding an excuse not to attend Axialfest 2018.
