    Farewell to the Tactical

    It looks as though Traxxas has dropped the Tactical unit from the lineup. It was my first model and a lot of fun. I thought it needed a light kit, but was a pretty tough model. The body is much thicker than my Bronco. Just an FYI.

    I am 90% sure that the fenders are attached to the body, rather than the actual car, so that may be the reason. I am noticing that TRX4 bodies are not the strongest, and I am thinking of adding an extra layer to the body on my TRX6. My magnetic mounts seem to really wear down the sides :/

    Yes fenders on body.i took them off and mounted to chassis.
    Mesh drywall tape and shoe goo.
    Works well for body repairs and durability

    I use the while fabric type.its kinda sticky on one side.
    You form it around stress areas.
    Thin layer of shoe goo.let dry.
    I will sometimes add a 2nd layer with the mesh slightly offset and skim again.adds weight but toughens up the area and takes a bit more abuse
    Its holding the bed in on this shell.

    So one roll of drywall tape and one tube of shoe goo should be good for multiple rcs?

    Ya the tape is a pretty large roll
    Shoe goo is fairly inexpensive at least.
    It will go a pretty long ways

    I've loved the traxxas bodies on my trucks. The trx4 defender and bronco seem to be very durable imo. When we were out running trucks a friend of mine rolled his tactical trx4 off a rocky hill and the body survived the roll to the bottom. I've got a slash body that has seen better days but it's old and been through alot in its life.
