RC Rock Crawlers and Scale Trucks
We stock the largest range of RC rock crawlers Australia has to offer!
On the hunt for an RC machine that can handle the toughest terrains? You can’t go wrong with an RC rock crawler!
Rock crawling is an extreme kind of off-road driving with a vehicle that has been customised to overcome some serious obstacles. From boulders to mountain trails, rock piles and foothills, these four-wheel-drive (4WD) beasts can take on the rockiest trails you can imagine — and then some.
If you like to take your RC vehicles off-road, then an RC rock crawler is a must-have item for your collection. Coated in a thick and durable material, RC crawlers resist crash damage with ease. On rocky terrain, you’re going to need it — there’s no doubt there are some rolls and tumbles in your RC future!
To keep up with all the bumps and jumps, RC rock crawlers come with maximum suspension and high torque steering. This allows you to elbow around hard terrain and manage some extreme moves.
At Frontline Hobbies, we stock a huge range of RC 4x4 crawlers from brands including Traxxas, Kyosho, Tamiya and Roc Hobby, imitating recognisable crawler models like Jeep, Toyota Land Cruiser, Land Rover and many more.

Characteristics of a RC rock crawler
When it comes to speed, power is not usually an issue. Real-life rock crawlers usually lower their gear ratios to drive slowly over obstacles without stalling the engine. The same goes for RC crawlers — while they can reach low to medium speeds while crawling and aren’t known for gunning it!
The main feature to look out for in your RC 4x4 rock crawler is the suspension and low-gearing. Take the Maverick MV12505 Scout model, for example. This machine has an extra-low 1:48 gearing thanks to its tough sealed transmission and differential. Plus, this truck gets suburb traction and grip from the tyres — another absolute essential for climbing, crawling and trail driving.
Like a real-life crawler, the MV12505 has solid axle 4-link suspension with extra-long oil-filled dampers, giving the model over six inches of travel at each wheel for over 80 degrees of articulation between the front and rear axles.
This allows you to get over tall, seemingly impossible obstacles with ease.
Crawlers are all about flexibility, durability and low-gear driving. In our collection, you’ll find hundreds of models that can take on the world’s toughest terrains!
We stock a huge range of RC crawler brands!
At Frontline Hobbies, you’ll never be limited by brand, models, colours or styles. We stock hundreds of RC crawlers both online and in-store and if the model you’re looking to buy is out of stock, we can order it in from our suppliers so you don’t have to wait for us to stock up online.
Our range of RC rock crawlers brands includes:
|FTX||Tamiya||WL Toys||ECX||HBX||FMS||Redcat||Team Associated||River Hobby VRX|
For high-performance and flexibility, you have to check out the range from Axial. Made for cutting-edge crawling, Axial RC crawlers have high clearance off the ground to minimise scrapes along the bottom of the vehicle and adjustable oil-filled shocks for a smooth ride on otherwise rough terrain.
The Axial Capra 1.9 Unlimited Trail Buggy has all-metal gears from the centre transmission to the lockers and portal axles, making it one of the most durable and versatile crawlers available. Essentially, this machine is entirely made up of powerful metals like aluminium and stainless steel, so you can take on the terrain and resist damage.
If you’re looking for an RC rock crawler that looks more like the traditional trucks you see clambering over rocky mountainside slopes, Axial also has a range of replica models like Jeep Wrangler Crawlers, Jeep JT Gladiators, Chevrolet C10 Crawlers and more.
