- Battery and charger
- Metric hex drivers in 1.5mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm and 3mm
- Phillips head screwdriver
- Needle noe pliers
- Safety glasses
- Polycarbonate paint for the body shell (ask for a ‘how to paint your bodyshell’ sheet too)
You get to build your own TRX-4 portal axle assemblies in this kit. These all new to RC axles lift the chassis at the wheels for huge cente pumpkin ground clearance. In order to achieve the same clearance with no portals ( and not get stuck) the tyres would need to be more than 1inch taller. The portals let you clear rougher terrain without getting hung up.
TORQUE TWIST ELIMINATED
Total axle gear reduction with portals is more than twice non-portal designs, virtually eliminating torquw twist.
CANYON 1.9IN TRAIL TYRES
Traxxas Canyon Trail tyres with foam inserts are super soft and grippy for superior bite on rocky surfaces with convincing scale realism. a 12mm steel hex drives the wheels.
PRE-ASSEMBLED GTS SHOCKS
The shocks in this kit are pre-assembled for you and deliver silky smooth dampening performance. These have aluminium threaded shock bodies, for screw ring tension adjustment, an o-ring cap seal and dual x-ring shaft seals. Just add oil and install.
PRE-CUT CLEAR BODY SHELL
The TRX-4 Sport body shell comes pre-cut and ready to paint or mount as is. You get the window masks and decal sheets so you can do your own personal custom paint job, you will need polycarbonate paint for this (we recommend Tamiya PS paint). The detailed, injection moulded grille and tailgate are fitted with light lenses, red in back and white in front, so you can add your own LED light kit if you want.
Full time locked diffs, front and rear, transform your motors torque into unstoppable climbing action and drag brake. With no slippage possible all four wheels claw upward with equal traction, powering TRX-4 Sport over the toughest obstacles.
STEEL GEAR TRANSMISSION
The single speed transmssion is geared for low low torque that you will need to scale the steepest grades. Steel gears provide the Traxxas tough durability that Traxxas pride themselves on.
STEEP APPROACH ANGLE
TRX-4 has a 59deg approach angle, the same at the back so it’s harder than ever to get hung up on obstacles. The front mounted motor biases weight toward the front of the vehicles for superior climbing ability.
Portal axles raise the link mounts, centre driveshaft, steering drag link and the tie rod up out of harms way. Centre ground clearance is increased whilst critical driveshaft and suspension link angles are reduced.
PRE-ASSEMBLED SUSPENSION LINKS
The suspension links provided in the kit are pre-assembled so you wont have to worry about them not all being the same length and are 5mm thick for superior strength. They have heavy duty rod ends with captured steel pivot balls for maximum movement.
TRX-4 Sport kit comes with a fully sealed receiver box, the lid with a silicone o-ring seal and a water resistant rubber mat at the top and bottom of the slot where the wires go in. Which means rain, snow, ice, sleet, mud, whatever, nothing stops TRX-4.
RIGID STEEL FRAME
All the TRX-4 variants come with a rigid steel c-channel frame chassis and the Sport kit is noexception. This design feature has come to be known as the best industry staple there is for scale crawling and provides an exceptionally rigid backbone for TRX-4 Sport.
