I’d pass on the blower, seems more for a monster than a crawler.

Thing looks fantastic though, I just sold my scx10ii and the slash may be on its way out today too so I’m hoping to have the bronco ordered here in the next week!

Thanks for the input, I kinda liked it because of the 70s muscle crawler theme that I seen before. I'm still looking for interiors do you guys think any forbthe proline interiors would work inside the trx?

Someone with the skill/knowledge needs to make a removable top on shapeways. That would put this over the top in my opinion. Of course with an interior.

RPP shipped mine today. Should be back in Texas by Wednesday.

It also appears that the body is all black and the colored areas are decals.

From the parts list:

8010X Body, Ford Bronco, complete (black) (includes front and rear
bumpers, push bar, rear body mount, grill, side mirrors, door
handles, windshield wipers, spare tire mount, red and sunset
decals) (requires #8072 inner fenders)

Part number does not pull up on their site yet so no idea how they are going to price it.

At least you get quite a few parts with it. Still several parts to buy however.

The body itself is going for $200 bucks on ebay... Lol

Doesn't fit at all because of the fender mounts are on the body of the Defender. you could probably take them off and it should work.

The only glaring obvious issue is the rear locking hubs decals. We had 4 come thru the shop I work at. Seriously considering the kit and a yota body.

Hi dude,

I have one more question. Is the rear body post in the same position as in the 110 despite of the different wheelbase? I am not speaking about the height but about if it was moved a bit to the front. Is my question written in an understandble way?

Could you please upload a profile photo with the two rigs side by side without the bodies?

Thanks!

From my perspective it seems to be a bit off. A bit maybe half an inch or so. So not entirely bad. I took these photos for you :

Let me know If that helped.

Oh man, thanks for the fast reply. I love the fellowship that exists in all the RC world. No matter if we are in different continents

the photos are perfect. Its strange for me, because I thought that it would be moved a bit to the front due to the shorter WB. Definitly the front post mount is in the same position.

I'll be putting the cutter to work to separate me from the herd.

I see your location is Richmond. Is that VA? Also be sure to post pics of your custom graphics!

Richmond, Texas. Actually closer to Sugarland. SW of Houston.

I'll make sure to post pics.

Stumbled across a pic of a bronco with the decals removed; and the top painted red.

I'll try to say this carefully, as I'm a Retired Ford Technician - and I don't want the guys there to laugh so hard, that they might CHOKE!!!!

BUT, SINCE the TRX-4 does come with locking Front AND Rear Axles.... That might not be entirely inaccurate! LMAO!!

RC-OH-HI-AH......

TRAXX-ASS has not always been my favorite RC Company. I've only bought two... The Sledgehammer, in 1988, and the Nitro T-MAXX, in 2003.
Their marketing strategies and Price Gouging practices in the past, left me a little hot. My T-MAXX that I bought in 03, cost me $279.95, which although high at the time, was at least reasonable for what you got.....
I wanted to buy another one in 2012.... $489.99!!!! BOTH were at Hobbytown USA.

THEN, the first TRX-4 came out. BIG, bulky, top heavy, gimmicky, a proprietary LONG Wheelbase that NOBODY else was using, and GROSSLY OVERPRICED! But of course, the under 30 crowd couldn't buy them fast enough.

HOWEVER...... THEN they announced that Bronco!! OMG!! It looks just like my first Truck - Sunset Theme and all. They gave it the NORMAL 313mm Wheelbase (although I couldn't IMAGINE not wanting THAT Body!!).
And those RIMS!!

OK, Traxxas REALLY did their Homework with this one. Sadly, I can't DREAM of affording one now!
I can only HOPE that I'll be able to afford to get that Body Kit.

No.... I didn't come to a Traxxas Forum, to BASH Traxxas..... completely! lol
DUDE!! I can't believe that I'm so Jealous of you, because you bought a TRAXXAS!!! But alas, I am.
Although.... and I had to think very hard to come up with something to give you some crap about - you titled this "TRX-4 Bronco BUILD".
It's a RTR!!

OK, in the past two weeks, I've drooled over the pre-release of this Rig.... I've seen Videos of it.... And, last week, I watched Harley actually BUILD the TRX-4 KIT..... (AND, just the thought of ANY Traxxas KIT - is cause enough for shock and a little celebration)
DAMMMITT! Now I WANT ONE!! Even if I still can't afford one. I've even been doing a little planning, like I'd probably get a Locker for the REAR Diff Only - and leave the Front selectable.

IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, congrats on a fine new Rig, and good luck with it!
