    Looks like the truck has been named the Defender.

    I wonder if they are doing this like their other RCs, the actual name of the platform is "TRX-4", and that version of it is the "Defender"?

    It is great having something official on Traxxas' site, but for now, I think I have settled on calling it 'Eleanor' (for obvious reasons).

    Could be, it would definitely be a change for Traxxas, going from Slash, Stampede, Telluride etc... to TRX-4.

    Well this is good news for sure, best we've heard officially anyway. Maybe I made the mistake of buying something else just recently, was afraid the money was going to get spent elsewhere. But still anxious to see reviews

    Aren't they sort of doing this with the new 4tec2.0?
    They way I understand it the model is the FordGT and the platform is the new 4tec2.0 . I could be wrong though

    Not really. See TRX-1, -2, & -3. TRX-4 makes total sense for a 4x4.

    How many hours and thousands of dollars were spent on brainstorming to come up with just "TRX-4"?

    Until we actually see it on the market, its name is Eleanor...

    But yes, "TRX-4" is just like what they are doing with the new 4-Tec, and really is what they are doing with a lot of their RCs. Look at all of the body variations on the Stampede, and the Slashes have different flavors to them, and I think even the Rustler has a couple of named models, there is that techno-puke colored one inspired by Courtney Force.

    I wonder if it will use the same controller as the Summit? Hopefully it will have one channel left open for a winch.

    Honestly, it wouldn't be a tragedy if traxxas couldnt pull off the rover agreement. Body looks great but eh, I never cared for land rovers.

    Hoping there is other trx-4 planned.

    Because you know I'm right each time. And, complaining is usually the best way to make things better. If you go to a McDonalds and your coke is not cold, you complain and you get a cold one, if your burger is not the way you asked for it, you get another one well done. If you just settle with the way the things are, they will never improve unless the ones making it decide to, take a look at the 8S X-Maxx, the e-revo axel carriers, as just two examples, I have thousands. And, I guess I have the right to complain as a customer, also I'm one of the top Traxxas customers.

    I kind of think though that TRX-4 is a blah name. They need a better name.

    I think traxxas should try to get license approval from jeep...the possibilities will be endless....They can call it....Traxxas Rock Crawler-(name of vehicle body)...for example...TRC-Renegade TRC-Trailcat TRC-Wrangler...and release a new body every six months like they do with the Stampede

    TRC-Cherokee,Rubicon,Gladiator,Trailstorm,Commando,CJ1 etc etc

    Being a Jeep lover, they should IMO. Jeep is going to release a brand new generation Wrangler this fall, and having a scale Traxxas verion of it would be killer! There's so many Jeep body styles out there, the possibilities are endless.

    Hmm, turns out there actually is a LR variant with a Kilimanjero edition.
    Dang! I was going to suggest this, only without the extremely cool pic. It works with the mountain theme (Summit, Teton, Telluride) I actually climbed Kili once long long ago in a continent far away... I vote for Traxxas Kili cause we have to keep the name short so that we can splash it all over the box in huge letters, and Kilimanjaro is a bit cumbersome. We can also have the Toto "Africa" song as the theme for the sick videos from whoever is the first one to actually drive it to the top of Kili!. "Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti" The scree would be the biggest challenge. Ok, I have talked myself into it! I am going to take the truck and a video crew to do this shoot right now!

    Defender? Oh well, maybe next time.
