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.

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 [...]
