    Do we know how soon "soon" is for TRX-4 Sport accessories?

    Got my wife the sport as soon as it was available, but she'd been bummed that the accessories aren't out yet.

    Has Traxxas been more specific with release dates? She has her eyes on the Expedition Rack

    why bother about specific accessories?
    I think they will release them at the same time...
    I am also waiting for all of them and even the clear body

    but I have no idea how soon "soon" is

    They have so many coming out for this truck that I would imagine they'll roll them out on different schedules, but regardless, she specifically wants the roof rack.

    I'm not looking for exact dates, but something like "late fall" or "before the holidays" would be helpful.

    Ok just came across this news - excited about these accessories - hoping the Sport body will fit my original TRX-4. Looking to get the Sport body and these new accessories for it. Unpainted maybe... but which color will be best to paint it?!

    If it doesn't require a lot of work, I might also consider this to keep the body weight down for crawling!

    You say "Original TRX-4" I assume you are referring to the Defender or possibly Tactical editions?

    The Sport body is built for the shorter 312mm wheelbase. The Defender and Tactical versions are 324mm factory. You could do the long to short wheelbase conversion kit #8058 $28.00. This kit includes the inner fenders which is nice as the Defender and Tactical inner fenders stay with the body.

    I've wondered if it'll fit as well. I'm not sure that a conversion is necessary though. If you look at the pictures then there's a good bit of room for the longer wheelbase.


    Looks like it should fit to me.

    True! The longer WB could help departure angle too! Wouldn't hurt to try it first.

    Ordered it - and paid about $40 in shipping and duty to get them here in Canada. Should have them next week, but my god did this ever end up to be an expensive part. Called my LHS and they don't have any details on this coming to Canada any time soon, so I rather than anger my wife even more, I bit the bullet.

    Hey Traxxas and Friends
    Looking for the light bars and the headlights, tail lights? Anybody find these on the web yet or local hobby shop? Mine is telling me not released yet. Thanks to this group right here I was able to order the expedition rack and it looks awesome.

    The Sport body comes pre-dilled so lining up post holes could be an issue.
    I converted my Bronco and Kit to the sport, just needed to cut the rear post and turn it backwards.
    Also needed the narrow inner fenders (or could have got the sport shock mounts).

    I got mine straight from Traxxas.
    But, your LHS should also be able to order them.
