Axial Wraith RC vehicles tackle Moab Rim Trail at Easter Jeep Safari.

The Axial Experience at Moab Rim took place April 5th 2012 with 3 RC Pilots navigating their Axial Wraith radio Control cars up the trail and back much like their larger counterparts who stopped in amazement of the group hiking the trial with controls in hand. Organized by the Axial Experience and Axial Wraith fan page both found on Facebook. The group had also hosted an underground RC race at this years King of the Hammers event that mimicked the popular off road race on adjoining property to the OHV area.  The young men who are not quit ready to tackle the trail in the more expensive full size rigs take this smaller scale version very serious with vehicles that carry the required equipment that the larger cars need. The scale trail ride hopes to continue next year with a larger turn out. It was a unique perspective of a trail we have driven before, and it was great to see the next generation of 4 wheel driver show us what they have learned growing up in the back seats of Jeeps.
