RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Review

RC4WD has flown under a lot of peoples radar. On the crawling/scaler scene they are very well known, but a whole lot of normal bashers have not even heard of them, let alone know what kind of product they put out, or even that they put out entire kits. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the RC4WD Trail Finder 2 4wd off-road truck. Where does it fit into the market place? Is it bash worthy? What’s the scoop?

RC4WD Blade Snow Plow
It is getting colder here in the Chicago metro area, snow can’t be too far around the corner. The same is true in many northern parts of the globe.

RC4WD just sent us a hot new release, their Blade Snow Plow. With the RC4WD blade snow plow your scaler becomes a snow pushing machine when it gets nasty this winter. The snow plow is CNC machined and weighs in at 11 oz. A servo is used to make the blade go up and down.

If you want to mount the snow plow up to your Axial SCX10 you’ll need RC4WD mounting kit #Z-S1002, if you plan on putting it on your RC4WD Trailfinder 2 you’ll need #Z-S1003.

The part number for the RC4WD Blade Snow Plow is #Z-X0007, it has a street price of $79, and you can get more information at This Link.

Unboxing RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Truck Kit w/Mojave Body
As you can see by the pictures, we are in the midst of reviewing our very first RC4WD truck. This particular truck is the Trail Finder 2 with Mojave body and so far we are very impressed. The Trail Finder 2 comes with perhaps the best packaging we’ve seen, they make a real presentation out of all the parts in the kit.

Also of note, it may be called a kit, but many of the major components, like the tranny, shocks, and axles, are pre-built. We were also quite impressed that nearly all the parts are real metal, there simply isn’t much plastic to be found in the chassis components. When we first picked up the box we couldn’t believe how heavy it was, hopefully all the metal parts make the truck extra tough.

We just received the Trail Finder 2 today so look for our full review in about 3 weeks. Until then, enjoy the unboxing pictures and you can click This Link for complete information on the RC4WD Trail Finder 2. If you are already wanting to put one in your rc garage, RC4WD products are distributed by Horizon Hobby, making it easy for most local hobby shops to get one in for you.

RC4WD is showing off their recently announced but still unavailable Trail Finder 2 kit. Beyond the awesome scale looks, this sequel to the Trail Finder 1 features a newly designed chassis, an all new transfer case, a new R3 2 Speed Transmission, cast Yota axles and plenty of other great features.  The truck still doesn’t have a precise release date, but you can be put on the waiting list to fork over $399 when they do become available by heading to the RC4WD store.

If you’re into scale RC, then RC4WD probably sounds familiar to you. Their new Trail Finder 2 Kit offers some awesome features, such as a two-speed transmission, highly detailed bodywork and scale leaf spring suspension to name but a few. It comes with everything you need to get up and running, minus elecronics, including high-grip Mud Thrasher tires and a Mojave body kit. Being RC4WD, durable metal parts will last a lifetime, but a wide range of option and performance parts are also available.
