    RazorRC's TRX-4

    Picked up a kit at my local hobby store during Black Friday. Was planning to get an SCX10 II at some point, but after doing a bunch of research decided to get the TRX-4 instead. Glad to see Traxxas making kits again!

    Thanks!

    3 hours of work... kit is really nice, highest quality product I've seen from Traxxas so far.

    I've yet to see a poor traxxas model. I've owned scx10's and a wraith and the amount of slop in everything makes you question any kind of quality control.

    The 2WD parts are going a bit old, you can tell the molds have been used for about 20 years and are getting pretty sloppy. But this one is killer.

    Good job, you got a winner. Any great plans for down the road for the build?

    Motor positive wire was disconnected out of the box (poor solder job), Traxxas sending me a new one. 2 more hours into the build, roller is almost complete.

    Gonna run stock electronics for now (probably with FC6GS radio), but got a new servo and ESC on the way.

    Whoa, this is a complicated kit. I can see why some people like the Sport version!

    Stock springs seem too stiff for my lightweight Lexan body. Searching around the forums, I don't see too many people changing out springs. Ordered some softer TRX-4 springs, we'll see how it goes. Put in 25wt oil and that also seems too heavy doing some bench testing.

    I bought the defender rtr version. the springs in rtr version are different from those in kit version. all 4 springs are the same in kit version but rear springs (having green marks) are stiffer than front springs (having no mark) in rtr version.

    Did a little bit of crawling today, definitely a fun truck!

    What do you guys think is the most worthwhile performance modification for crawling? I'm thinking brass portal covers will make the biggest difference without adding rotating weight (weighted wheels).

    Weight down low. Hard to believe, but going slow is actually fun, when you're a go fast guy! Trying to think of who makes the disc brake deals on bearings, not rotational mass and weight at the hub. I think SSD and another. As the hex.

    Thanks. Pretty relaxing.

    I put together a short video on today's maiden run.
