    It really depends on your own opinion. How are you not happy with the Defender? Is it too slow, does it flip over too easily in your opinion? You should only get it if you really like it.

    No worries, the TRX4 forum is meant for the TRX6 too.

    Telling us what your not satisfied with your TRX4 can help a lot in determining if the TRX6 would be a good purchase for you. The TRX6 is like a TRX4 with more traction, better performance in some ways. They handle about the same, the TRX6 has a larger turning circle due to the extra axel.

    If you don't like how the TRX4 can't go over some large rocks, the TRX6 will, but it flips over just as easily (without the body) , has roughly (a little less) the same speed, and pretty much the same features.

    The Defender is lousy for hard-core crawling, and is more intended to be a scale off-road RC. Getting another body and adding weight down low will change your experience with the TRX4 greatly.

    The TRX6 is an outstanding vertical crawler, but it is big and heavy, and gets a little tippy on more extreme side-hills without some additional weight down low.

    For extreme crawling, you might want to go for a motor on axel crawler, but those are less "scale" than these types of rigs. There is buggy like rigs from Axial like the Capra, which is more of an extreme rock crawler.

    Thanks and I was leaning toward axial any way and have looked at the Capra I just like the look of the trx6 and a YouTube video I watched rated it the best 2020 crawler but thatís why I ask for opinions

    A TRX4 with portal weights and other weights, and a lighter body, and some other upgrades can make it a veeeerrrrrry good performing crawler, and can out crawl a near stock capra, but you're going to have to spend a bit of cash. The TRX6 can do better in some places, like vertical climbing and descending, but if you're looking for a more cost-effective high performance cralwer, the tube chassis crawler and MOA (Motor On Axel) are going to be your best bet.

    I have upgraded the servo and put a 35 turn tekin motor on it and of course the light kit but no weight upgrades or tires
