Default TRX4 Truggy body

This started off as a TRX4 Defender.

Its been one of my stay occupied projects, so its got just about all the brass parts, axles, upgraded servos etc. The electronics are all still stock.

The body is Proline Superduty with the trail honcho back half. I 3D printed a hinge at the back of the cage and the body is magnet mounted at the front.

I 3D printed a grill insert, and headlight buckets that I painted with chrome paint, didn't install the headlights yet...and then went out played with it and rolled it down some rocks, so its not quite this pretty anymore.

I forgot to add, the lower body is painted with bedliner, and i 3D printed some spacers to relocate the rock sliders up a bit higher, and a little narrower.

the bottom rear bar fits in the little Ďhalf roundí shaped notch and is trapped between that and the chassis rails, and that makes the hinge, super simple and effective
