Default turatula trx4m anti traxxasss build

I was thinking about building a trx4m while dreaming/shopping I ran across this tiny buggy body the injora turatula anyway it's about half price compared to a traxxxaasss body so I pulled the buy button trigger it should be at the post office

Got a stock skid

And a set of cheap alloy axles with brass bits

I'll post pics as the parts come in but if nothing else it should be a interesting build I hope lol

I've got two TRX4Ms, one for each of my younger twin sons. They've been solid so far.

One of them actually likes the scale realism, and doing the work on it. The other just likes to bash it, and have me do the work / upgrades.

After seeing your post, I just ordered the Tarantula chassis for the latter son. He'll probably love the look, and it'll make his appear very different from his brother's Bronco.

That's pretty cool

I'm surprised I haven't seen one built yet
This is a new platform for me so it should be interesting

Sweet chassis and tiny turk, looking forward to your build!
Tarantula chassis:

There's also the Meus RC chassi that is similar and has even more options:

Itís a nice little chassis especially for the price. Just about done with mine but I went the hard route and didnít follow the rules. Fcx axles donít play nice with traxxas skid geometry.
Looking forward to seeing the build.

so I must have ordered 3 sets of axles for this thing every set dident ship for what ever reason and it frustrated me so it went on the back burner but after seeing everyone else build there's my interest has come back

I ordered the injora trans with the purple motor and another set of axles are on there way I hope anyway I do have a set of scx24 axles I picked up for another project that found it's way to the later pile and they just look to small on this rig
the axles I ordered are wider than stock trx4m so I'm hoping it will have that og bomber look long wide and low

I have the 1.3 Swamp Claws on my Tarantula and that work very well, I think you'll like them. I was concerned about the foams being to stiff but that doesn't appear to be the case.

The Tarantula and mini Ripper are so cheap that they're tempting. Very cool
