I picked one up and it's impressive. I sold the SCX10-2 I had, if that tells you anything. The remote locking diffs and remotely operated 2 spd tranny are awesome. I love the body as well. Lots of truck for the money.

I have driven one on 2 different occasions on different courses.....very very nice out of the box rig. Both buys had upgraded tires and steering servo within 5 packs. Dig unit works flawlessly and even with this top heavy body on a tough course, rig did amazingly well and not a handful to drive. In both cases the guys went with the Hyrax PL tires and man they hooked up. enjoy if you get one.....Traxxas definitely hit a homerun....

My first crawler. I bought it and don't regret it. The remote locking axles are ridiculous.

I'm currently trying to sort out a dx5R to work with the trx4 servo setup. Shouldn't be too hard. It's 5 channels total

Looks great.

Did find it interesting the 'TRX#' naming was resurrected for a non-1/10 track model.

I have had my TRX-4 for about two months now and the more I drive it the better I like it. The locking diffs are a game changer IMO.
