That looks really cool trex4Owner.

What do you guys think about the Team Raffee Co. bodies?

Well what in specific like d110 d90 now for looks team raffee makes awesome bodies but (Iím not expert) but I think for any body from team rafffe other than there d110 or the g-wagon I think you would have to make you own links or just buy shorter links and cut the driveshafts and do mods like that the d110 and g-wagon should just be making the wheelbase longer and donít take my word 100% just my thoughts I have no clue other than for what you have to do to get a blazer body or hilux body to fit. And thanks btw my truck is a absolute mess but itís getting there. Good luck on yours

The TRX-4 is a standard-size 1.9" scale crawler, so you should be able to fit any 1.9" scale crawler body onto it.

Keep in mind that a hardbody will make it much easier to tip over, and you'll scratch the paint on a regular basis.

I'm going to be running a Bullhead body. Hardbody heavy and your CG center of gravity will be a little bit higher with a hardbody. Unless mine is just different and just plain heavy.

Note the Defender TRX4 has a 12.8Ē wheelbase and the Bronco TRX4 has a 12.3Ē wheelbase

What exactly is a hard body? I'm running a gen 7 pro and I believe it's a lexan body? Is that classified as a soft body?

hard body would be a body consisting of styrene, abs plastics and/or fiberglass construction. They are not flimsy. They are generally far more detailed, but increase the center of gravity because of the added weight over lexan. Nobody really refers to lexan as a soft body though, no.

Thumbs up Re: Coolest bodies for the TRX4

I like the idea of the Blazer Hard Body, is that a rc4wd body or Clodbuster? I Am running a Vaterra Ascender Blazer Body on My TRX 4 Sport and it fits the Chassis Very Well!! Iíll try to post pics but Iím new here so I am not sure if I can yet..

IMO, the RC4WD Blazer hard body is just too small to be a good fit on the TRX4 chassis. It is not a hard body but here is the Traxxas TRX4 K5 Blazer body in black on the TRX4 chassis. It is a very nicely detailed body.

The Proline 4runner lexan body is like $45 and looks pretty great. Had to trim the fender flares on my Bronco to fit it on but I'm pretty satisfied with it.

If you are looking to shell out some $$, I'm personally very intrigued by the RC4WD 1985 Hardbody 4Runner. Also i think the Bronco body sold by Traxxas is really just one of the very best looking bodies out there.
