what other bodies have you guys been running?
 
so far like this. It's an interesting design. Don't really care for the body though. Looking around online I was thinking about the 72 chevy front cage back that comes on the ascender. any pitchers of what you guys done post them up. Thanks a lot"thumbsup"

I don't have my TRX4 yet but I'm working on a Axial Kaiser body. Specs say 12" wb, but it is closer to 12.5" and a little over 8" wide. It is going to be a pretty good fit!"thumbsup"

It won't fit all the way down on my ascender because of the winch but the ascender is at 12.5"

Working on weathering the body, I still have a ways to go.

I'm liking those Ascender Curries with DLux brass knuckles. Sexy indeed.

The k5 ascender body is almost a perfect fit for the wheelbase as I dropped one on at hobby town yesterday. Anything that fits wb4 on the ascender should be doable....

Proline toyota Hilux

Did a bunch of trimming on the bed to fit right and be flush with the slider. Also flipped the bumper mounts for better approach angles

Wow, this looks good! Any chance you could show us more details of what you did in the bed area? I'd love to see a top-down/overhead look. I've never owned a Proline Hilux body so I don't know what the bed looks like and what potential it has for modification.

Also, do the tires tuck up into the body?

Ill be try a PL Topkick with Vaterra K10 Rear cage. maybe 66 Chevy from proline depends on what the budget holds after buying the truck $599.99 CND is alot of my budget

Re: what other bodies have you guys been running?
 
Sure does look good. I'd like to see the bed mods also

I think I'd like to try the Summit Apocalypse body. My priority would be to keep the inner fenders and all bracing. I can even use the Summit exo cage for strength.

Re: what other bodies have you guys been running?
 
i'd really like to see how that turns out. rover body on the summit looks cool, hoping the opposite swap works as well.

Do you have this body to measure wheelbase and stuff that would be a really cool build!

Wheelbase is 13.1 inches or 333mm. Stock TRX4 is at 12.8 so a little adjustment on the rear links should do it. Won't even need a new driveshaft.

Re: what other bodies have you guys been running?
 
believe one of the positions for the shock towers puts you at 336mm? i believe you just flop the mounts side for side and you're done. i know that doesn't change wheelbase, but along with adjusting links it would keep your shocks close to verticle

Found a local guy selling a brand new great looking Summit body for super cheap so I had to snatch it up. Even if I decide to go with the Apocalypse body, at least I have the exo cage to swap right over. Everything is looking great dimensionally. Shorter rear with a bit longer front but will still be inside the front bumper. Wheelbase is a perfect match with more opening for even bigger tires if I want. The Summit body is also not as tall for lower CG which is a plus. I'm going to start working on it right away and will report back with pics.

There is a guy on the facebook page that lockeduprc started that has already done 1 if you want to see how it looks finished https://m.facebook.com/groups/184150...&ref=bookmarks

Wheel base shortened to 12.5".

I have come to find out that most scx10.2 bodies will fit the trx4. Getting the proline bug body and nukizer.

scx10.2 bodies fit, but shrinking the wheelbase on the trx-4 to match those bodies takes some work. eventually traxxas will release their kits or whatever, but that might not be for quite a while.

You guys waste no time modding these. They all look really good!

Just got a trx4 last night so naturally I had to see what other bodies fit. The proline 66f100 intended for a tmaxx fits nicely other then I need to make new rear links to get it out to 13" where I like my wb to be. I'm liking that proline hilux body i may get one of those as wellhttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...0d5463c82b.jpg
