    TRX-4 build is pretty much done!

    *Traxxas full Defender light kit

    *Proline Rubicon Jeep body
    *2 sets of Vanquish 1.9 bead locks with Proline Hyrax and Super Swamper tires,
    *1 set of Vanquish 2.2 bead locks with Mudslingers
    *Integy 2.2 bead locks with PitBull Mickey Thompsons
    *tons of little scale accessories on the roof rack, rubber door handles, rear window mesh, Knight Customs windshield wipers and lower cage bar etc.

    I ordered and painted a couple extra defender bodies, and use them if I'm just cruising around or going on trails. If I'm doing any crawling I use the Jeep or Raptor body as they are much lighter and I don't care if they get scuffed up. I also added a strip of lead weight to every wheel before mounting the tires and that along with all the brass and stainless links really makes the truck super heavy down low and it performs far better than stock. I also had some 95mm Losi shocks on it for a while while I was waiting for parts for the Proline's, and they worked well but I had to get creative with the upper mounts. Currently the truck sits about 1/2 to 3/4 inch taller than stock so I can run slightly bigger tires with wider offset. Overall I'm super happy with the truck even though my bank account hates it... haha
