TRX-4 TAK­ING THE FALL

RC Car Action - - READERS RIDES - MIKE COLON › EL­GIN, IL

Mike learned two things while shoot­ing his Traxxas TRX4 in the fall fo­liage: First, that he’s de­vel­op­ing a knack for tak­ing pix of RC ve­hi­cles, and sec­ond, that the TRX4 doesn’t need much ex­tra to be a fun and ca­pa­ble trail run­ner. As such Mike has kept his truck pretty stock, choos­ing to add the TRX4 full light kit to give him more trail time as the days get shorter. (Bonus: those lights also help make the photos more dra­matic!) But with its fac­tory por­tal axles, re­mote-lock­ing diffs, and 2-speed gear­box he didn’t see any im­me­di­ate need to swap sus­pen­sion or driv­e­train parts. Next on his list are some ad­di­tional scale de­tails and maybe some more ag­gres­sive rub­ber, then he’ll be set for spring­time photos!
