    Traxxas optional parts for the TRX-4

    Which optional parts are in the list to order for the TRX-4?

    I think Led lights ,inner fender lights are not included also the lightbar.

    I do not think Traxxas will make a winch for the TRX-4 but the front bumper doesn't have a fake one about the size of after market one's, and the fake one can be removed.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Traxxas released 'sticker" tires, different bumpers, TiNi shock shafts, and given some time, possible separate body options. Who knows though, Traxxas loves to surprise us.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    Other than a light kit (going to do my own), I don't think Traxxas will need to make any optional parts for this thing. The dimensions look like it is pretty close to other popular models scaler that are on the market right now, so parts should bolt up with little modification. Plus, I am pretty sure companies like RC4WD and Vanquish will be making scale parts for it as soon as it hits the street.

    I think there is going to be some sort of wheelbase adjustment kit.
    I inquired about the said adjustable wheelbase in another thread and E-Maxxdude (Traxxas employee) replied "Details will follow"
    I didn't see any holes in the frame rails so I'm thinking a kit with longer or shorter arms, shaft and different frame rails or an adapter bracket.
    Who knows i'm a scaler virgin...

    Fitting different bodies

    Or you can change wheelbase for performance.
    Longer = better climber, but worse breakover angle and larger turning radius
    Shorter = smaller turning radius and better breakover angle, but worse hill climbing abilities.
