    New nitro vintage purchase.

    Hi everyone, a few weeks ago I purchase a nitro Traxxas model 8404/8410, TRX-4, swapped to electric, ¿anyone knows about this model?

    That's honestly not a too commonly discussed vehicle here! SWEET find though!

    Any more pictures?

    I understand, it's a very old model, thanks for the answer, of course, I put more photos in a brief time.

    There are a few photos more.

    The chassis.


    The final aspect.


    It's for electric conversion, at this time, I wait for the electronics and other things I want to install.

    Yes, it's definitely not something you see too often--especially in that condition. What are your plans?

    My project is to make a Pan Car, highly speed and on road only, I ordered a 7600kv motor from Team Corally, ESC from Sky RC with WIFI programming card, gyroscope from Sky RC too. New shock absorbers in full aluminum, more floor effect.

    That car is an unicorn and belongs on a shelf !!! I've seen only a few of them and the last one I saw was NIB and sold for over 1000 Euros!

    You're so lucky to have one, if you ask me, build it the way it was supposed to be, a vintage nitro car.

    Also, if you break anything you won't find any spare parts at all, your first crash will be your last run I'm afraid.

    Could you please post pictures of the original body, engine, decals, wheels?

    Hi mate, thanks for your words, I never imagine that price for this car, I have the original wheels, but no the original body shell, nitro motor. I have the chassis, all transmission components, wheels, and a motor mount for electric, have an ancient 27Mhz TX with the 27 Mhz RX too, probably I only use this for display in an encounter with other hobbyists, maybe a short straight race.

    Really, I bought it for a little amount of money, 100 euro, maybe put it in a shelf, as you says, when I finnish it.
