Wow, you got that fast! Looks great! I love the clear front windows, but that bad truck needs a little window tint.

Awesome! I'm jealous.

So, besides the body, wheels, and wheelbase, what are the differences between the Bronco and Defender?

Only for the rear shocks, right?

Has the body some inner reinforcements to be as "rigid" as the defender one?

Some pics would be great also


The bumpers look quite similar to this ones from ssd for the ascender

Hey guys did a quick unboxing video for you: https://youtu.be/d_QylBOCAFo

I will be uploading a bunch of photos and videos tonight! Stay tuned!



Beautiful!!! Here is a sneak peak!

Man what a day it was! I got a call around 11 o'clock from my local hobby store telling me there are 2 TRX4 Bronco's that just arrived and available! So, I dropped what I was doing and went to go pick it up. I was prepared, I had my Defender and batteries ready to go on an adventure. I got the bronco took a couple pictures and off I went to the park.(Cyclone Hobbies is the best). When I arrived at the park, I took a quick unboxing video, (link is above) to show it off to the world. Man it was so much fun, I took it through the mud, through the streams, over rocks....I beat it up today. I even took it to another park just to get sun set Photos:

(Brother an Sister)...Haha


Even after all of that, the highlight of my day came when I was setting up a shot of the bronco.....I sat down on a log and once I stood up, the logbranch somehow snagged my pants and ripped the back wide open... Man was I in Deep S#$%! Here I was, in a park, on the BEST DAY OF THE YEAR IN OHIO, 73 Degrees and SUNNY!!! I had to walk back to my car avoiding everyone in site.... Even maneuvering my body so they couldn't see the hounds of hell.. Needless to say, I made it home without much notice from anyone..... HAHAHA

Here are more photos:

There's also a front battery mount for small batteries, molded into the inner fenders. Also the inner fenders are attached to the frame rails not the body.


rcohio26, you got lucky on that, sounds like a great hobby shop indeed!

Just looked at the Bronco live and in living color at a hobby shop in Idaho falls, Idaho. Pictures do not do it justice. Heck, even the side trim is bolted on. Not decals. The shop worker asked me if I needed some alone time with the bronco. He was cool, as I was looking it over pretty hard.
You sir, are a lucky man to already own one.

It's the subtle scale details that set this one apart. I posted a picture on Instagram earlier and my friends were congratulating me on buying a new car... haha.

I'm curious if the Sunset graphics are painted on or if they are decals?

I hope they are decals. I Preordered the Black/Red from RPP.

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

So... The hobby shop put my picture up on their Facebook page because I bought the first TRX-4 there:
