I JUST FIN­ISHED A PROJECT TRAXXAS TRX-4

(you’ll see it in the next is­sue) with the goal of max­i­mum per­for­mance for rock-crawl­ing comps. My orig­i­nal thought was to get the chas­sis di­aled in, put a nice look­ing body on it, and call it a day. What I over­looked was that cer­tain scale de­tails are a re­quire­ment at some of these gath­er­ings. I didn’t add them ini­tially be­cause I wanted the weight of my truck to be as low as pos­si­ble for the best pos­si­ble per­for­mance, but since they are re­quired, I put on my think­ing cap and fig­ured out how to put just enough flair on to cover the re­quire­ments. I’ll show you what I added to my truck and, more im­por­tant, how I made all this sweet scale­ness hap­pen in a short amount of time.
