- Use essential household cleaners to maintain the car in its best form after every run.

This 1/10 scale of Everest 10 RC car has more likes than dislikes. Here, the suspension and train drivers have lots of metal, thus making them highly durable. One has the freedom to choose their upgrades as Axial SCX10 custom parts are compatible with the RC Everest 10 parts. Furthermore, the 4-link suspension blends very well with the crawls.
The RC Everest 10 is very affordable (less than $200 and easy to maintain. And by the way, this is a powerful car with awesome appearance and usage with reasonable crawl control.
Of course, these are aspects I do not really like about Everest 10. First, the thin plastic on the top body cover leads to the risk of the electronic components being damaged. Second, the NiMH 2000mAh capacity battery has proven to be a weak source of power, pushing one to purchase LiPo batteries. And finally, the lack of a gearbox exposes the gears to the earth elements such as sand.
- Strong metal for suspension and train drivers
- 4-link suspension blends very well with the crawls
- Thin plastic on the top body cover
- Lack of a gearbox exposes the gears to the earth elements
