Hard Body 2021 Ford Bronco SCX24? Yes Please!
Axial Racing is at it again with a new release in the popular SCX24 lineup, but this time they've broken free from their mold (dare I say lexan mold?) and released an ABS hard body! The new officially licensed 2021 Ford Bronco SCX24 is a thing of beauty with crazy attention to scale detail–if you can overlook the solid axles. People that follow my channel know that I am a huge fan of the SCX24 platform. I've purchased over 15 of them, have one or two of every style, and have even started offering some CCxRC aftermarket hopups for them. They are quite addicting.
I was very excited about the release of the SCX24 Jeep Gladiator and am even more excited about this Ford Bronco release. The ABS hard body has extra molded scale details from the addition of mirrors (finally), to the roof rails, tire mount), windshield wipers, front grill, light buckets, and scale accessories. To complete the look of the Ford Bronco they have Factory Ford Wildtrack wheels with the Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Tires. They've even included LED lights in the new clear molded light buckets! It is the first SCX24 to come with a spare tire that I think many people will ditch it to get better performance by lightening the load, but it looks really scale.
Included in the box is a decal sheet that has licensed decals that allow you to choose from the different models of Bronco available so full-size owners can match it to their personal rides. I think that's a nice touch.
The new hard body is secured by a hinge in the back and velcro up front to get rid of the "scale killing" body posts that are hated by many. Under the body you'll see a lot of the same components found in the SCX24 lineup from the Dynamite 88T 180 motor, worm gears, Axial AS-1 Micro Servo, and Dynamite 350mah 2s 30C LiPo battery. It even comes with the 4 AA batteries for the transmitter and a USB LiPo charger so you have everything you need to get it running in the box.
I've got mine on order and can't wait to tackle books and pillows in the house and dirt and rocks on the trails.

Axial® Scales New Peaks in SCX24™ Realism!
The first sport utility vehicle developed by Ford Motor Company, the Bronco enjoyed an uninterrupted production run that lasted five generations from 1966 through 1996. After a short absence, it returned to the Ford lineup in 2021 — and this new generation has quickly re-established the Bronco as one of the auto industry's premier "go-to" off-road vehicles.
Now every auto enthusiast who admires the full-size Bronco can own and drive their own officially licensed, 1/24 scale RC version: the Axial® SCX24™ Ford Bronco 4WD RTR.
No previous radio control experience is needed because it's easy to drive, fully assembled, and ready-to-run. The truck is built on the proven Axial® SCX24™ chassis, so even the most dedicated RC crawling fan will be proud to have it in their lineup. And serious scale modelers will be excited to find that this Ford Bronco not only looks great and performs well, but also brings a whole new level of scale realism to the SCX24™ platform.
With the SCX24™ Ford Bronco, Axial® introduces an exceptionally detailed and extra-durable ABS hard body with molded door handles, mirrors, and roof rails. There's also a mounted spare tire, plus optional second decal sheet for personalizing the finish. Complementing the detail of the scale Ford Bronco body, Axial® includes officially licensed Factory Ford Wildtrak wheels and Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires.
The SCX24™ Ford Bronco 4WD makes any spot the perfect setting for RC adventures. If you're stuck at work, go crawling on your desk. A messy room becomes an ideal obstacle course. Test your skills on an indoor "crawl course table" or take your SCX24™ Ford Bronco outdoors, where its water-resistant electronics are safe from the elements. You can set up an exciting trail in minutes with a few holes, twigs, and rocks.
Whatever course you follow, the SCX24™ chassis meets every challenge with full-time 4-wheel drive, a trail-taming 3-link front/4-link rear suspension, and much more. Realistic steel frame rails stand up to hard knocks. Worm gears on the axles increase ground clearance. Steel front and rear axles, front stub axles and steel dogbones let you crawl and climb with confidence. Power is supplied by a Dynamite® 88T 180-size motor and 2S LiPo battery. A 3-channel 2.4GHz radio system is included for precise, dependable control.
The Ford Bronco comes complete with everything needed to hit the trails right out of the box — transmitter, receiver, ESC, motor, servo, batteries, and USB charger. The authentic scale body is available in three color options based on current Ford Bronco factory colors. Enjoy the view from the peak of 1/24 scale realism with the Axial® SCX24™ Ford Bronco 4WD!
