Taking remote control off-roading to its furthest extreme is the new TRX-4 Scale and Trail Crawler from Traxxas. Far more than a toy, this is a motorised beast for men of all ages. As if putting a Land Rover Defender in a shrinking machine, Traxxus aimed for painstaking authenticity in every regard. That’s joined by a slew of innovative features and unrivaled versatility. Suffice to say, the TRX-4 is built to last and ready for virtually any terrain.
From the remote control off-roader, expect maximum ground clearance by way of elevated portal axles, which all but eradicate chassis torque twist. Additional features like remote-locking differentials and high/low transmission keep the crawler sturdy and steady on rocks, hills, or whatever else you want to throw its way. Powering the miniature SUV is an XL-5 HV ESC speed control and a 21T Titan 550 motor. Pair that with a 5000mAh iD LiPo battery pack and you get 2 hours of rugged runtime.
Knowing exactly where you might take the TRX-4, Traxxas waterproofed the electronics, and used sealed ball bearings and Hex hardware. Driving home the authentic vibe is the inclusion of a spare tire on the back. Indeed, Traxxas thought of everything to ensure prime performance and steadfast resilience. All that’s left for you to do is take this baby out of the box and put it to the test.
