    Thank you all for the information. Ordered the conversion kit. :)

    I really like the difference it made in the 2wd, so I should be happy with it. I just painted a nice new body for it, so the...

    Just realized the body posts are on the suspension assemblies so that wouldn't change. But still wondering about negative sides.
  3. Does the 4x4 Low CG chassis change ride height significantly?

    I have the LCG in my 2wd and like it much better than stock (less rolls). my 4x4 slash doesn't roll as easily as the 2wd stock did, but may change it to the LCG. Any down sides other than...

    Makes sense about the TSM. I think I'll leave my 4tec alone, but I started a 2wd Slash to drag/muscle car conversion, and bought an inexpensive hobbywing gyro to see is that helps with stability. ...
  5. Anyone ever use a gyro in their 4tec for drifting?

    I have a 4Tec 2.0 VXL, stock. I was wondering if anyone's ever tried putting a gyro in theirs and if it gave godlike drift control. Also, I have the TSM version, would that complicate things?

    I just finished building the same thing with the defender body. To fit the defender body (tactical is the same length I think), you need the wheelbase extension kit, it replaces the wheel wells with...

    That is the coolest build ever! I was thinking my scout trooper might make a good crawler driver, maybe carrying his speeder bike.

    You might have given me some ideas for my TRX Tactical body.

    How well did it work with the gyro? I'm thinking about making my low CG 2wd Slash into a muscle car, bonus for drifting. Got a 4x4 for the bumpy stuff.

    I'm in the middle of building the TRX chassis kit. It comes with a small tube of their high performance grease.

  10. For anyone wanting to use the Defender body on the TRX-4 Chassis Kit

    Just in case anyone else is in the same situation as me (building the chassis, bought the defender body kit), from Traxxas support on what needs to be done.




    So there you go, the TRX Chassis...

    Once I started figuring out how much it would cost to upgrade my CC-01 chassis, I saw that the Tamiya money pit is almost bottomless with parts availability being the bottom. I got out of RC around...

    I wish it snowed where I live, the traxx look very cool. I thought about ordering them last night, but ended up buying a Slash 2WD instead at the local shop. Kinda wowed how much cheaper Traxxas can...

    Maybe down the road, ironically, my Tamiya car is their Defender. It's a 2-door body style, but it feels almost like 1/11 or 1/12 scale in comparison to the Traxxas body. If I do build a trailer,...

    Awesome. The manuals/assembly guide looks really well thought out. So I'm excited for the weekend.

    I'm planning on printing a GoPro session bracket, windshield wipers, door handles, maybe a tiny...
  17. I just got a TRX4 Chassis kit, starting on it this weekend, any advice?

    So, I used to have Tamiya cars when I was a kid many many years ago. Bought a Tamiya kit a few weeks ago, then a Traxxas 4tec chassis and a clear body I'm finishing up this weekend, and then the...
