    I have not read anything indicating a kit. Has Traxxas ever offered a kit?

    I guess we'll have to satisfy by doing a complete teardown...I swear I enjoy that as much as driving these things.
    It would be cool to assemble from a kit though. I have only ever owned RTR's

    No if you look at Traxxas sneak preview pictures they show the red and silver only

    I doubt kit...... it's been years

    Maybe the other two colors will come later.

    I am also hoping they release the light kit we saw on the prototype to make the head/taillights functional and the roof rack light bar. I read the part about the "LED Rock Lights" that will be cool.

    I'm still catching up. But I ran a 21t Titan in my telluride that I built for mild crawling on 3s and it was fantastic. It's a great balance of speed and torque and smooth.


    In the OP Wolf, you mention an adjustable wheelbase. Did that just not make it to fruition?

    Completely disagree about the motor. My class 1 build has an Axial transmission and Losi LCC axles, I started out with a HPI 27 turn, then went to an Axial motor, then to the Titan. So far, the Titan has supplied the best power for the money.

    It all depends on gearing, trying to go low and slow in a Telly or 4WD Pede with a Titan is a bad idea, they just are not geared down enough and over heat the motor. But, the TRX-4, with its Ho/Lo transmission should do quite well with it. Of course, there are better motors out there, but I am betting the Titan will do pretty well.

    i have a STRONG "feeling". that a certain rough cut video of the awesome TRX-4 in its natural climate, crawling, will surface .... soon. If Traxxas does not release the final cut first.

    The vid above is in high gear. It also has a low gear.

    Cheers

    Don't yet. That truck is on 3s, in high gear. It's supposed to be that fast. On 2s, in low gear, you can expect about 25% of the speed in the video.

    Also, Bug Squid just posted some new pictures!

    you had to say it Jet, now you've jinxed us lol.

    I hope this one is not like the x-maxx where those of us that pre-ordered from the major online sellers had to sit and watch everyone getting theirs at the LHS for weeks before we got ours.

    I'm not worried. The longer it waits, the larger my savings account will be when I pull the rest out. So the less it'll feel like I took a hit. 😊

    It would not surprise me if Traxxas did this on purpose. By giving the smaller LHS's the first few ones, they are pretty much guaranteed sales for them, which could really help drum up business and attention; which is also why Traxxas is now sending out "demo" models of the Ford GT, and now TRX-4's to LHS's. While it sucks for the bigger guys, and the people that order one from them, it's not like holding back a few trucks from the big guys are going to hurt them like it would a small LHS. Hope that makes sense.

    I will admit with all the new videos and pictures floating around, I am getting very impatient.
