Traxxas TRX-4 Sport Video – Juicebox Park Fun!

Unboxing the Traxxas TRX-4 Kit Video

Time to unbox the Traxxas TRX-4 Chassis Kit. Because we are still recovering from the flood here at the office (it’s still a mess) Wrench stepped up and shot the video over at his place. We are really looking forward to building the kit, and will let everyone know how it goes. We aren’t expecting any gotcha’s, but you [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Gearing Up For Fun

In case you missed it, earlier this week we posted about a big scale event that we are hosting in tandem with the STL R/C Freaks. The crew has been kicking around the idea of this since late-Fall and now that the details are in the wild, we can talk a little more about it. We had actually talked quite a bit [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – All Aboard, Next Stop the Holidays

Crazy how fast this year has gone, as we are on the precipice of my favorite week. Thanksgiving week, that is. I’m a big fan for one simple reason, as I’m sure many of you are – it’s typically the shortest work week of the year! Around 4 years ago I started a tradition of doing a “holiday build” during the [...]

Unboxing the Traxxas TRX-4 Tactical Unit

Hey all, Doug here. The Traxxas TRX-4 Tactical Unit has just landed upon our doorstep, and before it’s given the requisite BSRC flogging, we thought you’d like to see what it looks like when you crack open the box. Upon opening the cardboard, one is greeted to a very tough, militaristic looking vehicle. Our full review is several weeks away, but until [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Bustin’ Broncs

Traxxas made a big splash this week with several big announcements pertaining to the TRX-4 platform. The first, and most “visual”, of the announcements was that a Bronco shell will be available. No word on the wheelbase of the body, but it will most likely be the same as the Defender, right under 13″. It’ll come in red and sunset. Hopefully [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Portal to Another Dimension

Much ballyhoo has been made about the Traxxas TRX-4 using portal axles, but based on the e-mails we receive I understand that some of you don’t really understand what these are or why they are on the truck in the first place. Let’s talk about them. There are various versions of the portal, but at their heart they all work the [...]

Upgrading the Servo in a Traxxas TRX-4

The Traxxas TRX-4 is a great vehicle out of the box, but there is always room for improvement. The most effective upgrade that you can do over stock is upgrading the steering servo to a more burly unit. Here, I’ll show you how. The Hitec HS-5646WP has proven itself time and time again in my scalers since I started using them in [...]

Monster Truck Madness #14 – The Summit Showed the Way

The hobby has gone Traxxas TRX-4 mad as of late, but for this edition of MTM I want to look at the truck where it got all its mojo from – the Summit. The Traxxas Summit was originally released in 2009 and is still available today, albeit with several upgrades from the OG unit. Based on the Revo platform, it has [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – When a Gimmick Ceases to Be a Gimmick

Another week, more time spent with our TRX4. I ****-you-not, our review vehicle has had more miles put on the odometer in one month than several of our scalers have had put on them during their entire lives. I’ve also never seen so much interest in a vehicle from the non-hardcore crawlers at BSRC. I mean, even Cubby is gaga over [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – First TRX-4 Hop-ups

Happy TRX-4 release week everyone! Most hobby shops have gotten their initial allotment in, and crawling groups, message boards and YouTube channels are lighting up with first run experiences. I’ve been taking in a good number of these impressions and it’s good to hear that the general public by and large seems to have come to the same conclusion that [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Busy Summer

With Memorial Weekend just around the corner, business is about to pick up! We spoke with HPI earlier this week and were notified that our Venture FJ Cruiser review kit will be showing up very soon! Not only that, but they reiterated their confidence in the vehicle and dared us to drive it like we stole it. Challenge accepted. You may think “well duh, every [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Another Week, Another Tease

It never fails that after I submit my weekly Scalin’ on a Friday morning, some kind of news breaks later in the day. Seems there is a lot of that going on lately. The “Traxxas Scaler” now has a name, the TRX-4, as well as proper photos showing a pre-production model doing its thing in the wild. The Land Rover Defender body looks [...]
