Picked up my TrailRunner today.



Intend to do an updated version of Ivanís Prerunner.

Trying on a set of 17 inch wheels and added the aftermarket bumper. 😎



Tires rub at full lock, but I donít think itíll be too bad.

Found a set of decals to get me heading in the right direction with the theme.

Very nice! I want to pick up one of these, but I think I'm going to have to hold off since I've already got the IFS on my Trailwalker.. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Thanks B! 😎

I like the TR body, I like smaller tires, the IFS gives it a complete new twist, and Iím an AE....I mean Element RC Whore! 🤣

Switched out the hubs from the TR and the Marlin. The Marlin hubs are a little thicker than the TR hubs. Iím trying to narrow up the width a bit to get the Marlin Crawler tires to tuck like the stock 1.55 tires.

May have to find a narrower hex? 🤔

Just a mm or two. 🤔

I think the 1.55 General Grabbers on the 1.55 Trailrunner wheels looks sick on the Marlin!😮



The 80ís Yota with 15 inch wheels is spot on! 👍🏼

First outing with the Trailrunner. Took it out to The Little Elden Boulder Field and let er eat! This little rig is awesome!

It put a huge grin on my face!

Crawls like a goat, great steering, suspension seems to be pretty well set up out of the box, and it’s whisper quiet.

I’m running the RC4WD 1.7 TSL’s (4.19) with minimal rubbing at full lock. At least not enough For me to worry about.

Just a heads up, if you decide to use the included off road Style bumper, trim it back just past the last hole or it will interfere with the steering bell crank and completely lock up the steering. Ask me how I know.

Maybe it’s mentioned in the instructions, but that seems like an oversight by Element?

Also, I wound add a tiny drop of superglue to the molded detail retaining g rings or your molded body details will disappear. I lost a door handle, a mirror, and the molded detail at the bottom rear of the truck.

Luckily I was able to find them.

Overall Im very pleased with the rig other than the few details I mentioned.

Looking forward to adding some more details. (Nail is do slow with this Covid stupidity). I also ordered a set of Pro Line BFG KM3 tires in Predator to try.

Hope to take my Marlin out as well next outing and compare the two.

Few pics from today.

Nice shots! I have used MCI before, they are GTG, but currently fairly slow to ship.


This might be a crazy question, but does that stinger bumper on the TF2 fit the TRunner??

Yeah, that's why I was hesitant to pick it up. I still want the body, and the box. Call me crazy, but I pick up the Element stuff partly for the boxes.

There's just something about the Element trucks that just makes them a fun platform to drive.

Gotta love the Element RC box art!


The Enduro chassis platform is my favorite.

Very nice, I've got my eye out for the body when it gets released. Mine looks decent with the PL 4-runner, but this one looks much better to my eye.

Agreed on how quiet it is, mine is basically silent when I run it.

Agree! The Enduro lineup are great rigs for the price and has become one of favorites to wheel!

Great outdoor pics dez!

Iím on the fence if I should get this rig or just pick up the clear body. I havenít even finished my Trailwalker yet! I really like the Trailrunner body and there are some very cool 3D printable parts for it.
