Default DirtMerchantís TRX-4M Bronco

Iíve been enjoying this tiny truck for a bit without doing much of anything to it. My LHS sells lots and lots of Traxxas, so itís been relatively easy to get almost anything for it, luckily. I didnít have horrible binding when turning, but it would visibly slow down, even with no load. Tonight I added a few things: The satin Method wheels, Baja Pro tires, brass wheel weights, crawl gears (I actually added these last weekend), the metal diff gears, and Fast Eddy bearings. All together these things make quite a difference. The gears alone are great, but the bearings make an already smooth rig feel much smoother. You could probably accomplish similar results with some good grease, but the price of bearings from FastEddy is hard to beat.

Regretfully, I donít have the sweet scale garages some folks do. Hereís some pictures of the only visible changes.

That looks great, I think I really like the white color so far.

Lookin' good Dirt!

I like the look of these Method wheels better than the stock all black wheels. The tires look great too! I'm going to pick up a set of them the next time I'm at my LHS.

I do like the white body. I just picked up an extra white body. Not sure if I leave it white or paint it.

Great to hear that the bearings and other mods made a difference!

I like those wheels they look good. My Fast Eddy bearing came yesterday but I haven't installed them yet.

Thanks very much to all of you! Outside of some SCX24s for our kids I havenít gotten much into the smaller scale stuff, but Iíve enjoyed this mini TRX-4.

Looking good, the white is great color option and those tires should hook up better than the stock. How's it doing today?
