Default TRX4 kit

Got theTrx4 kit together . Installed a Hitec 7954sh servo paired with a Castle Bec set at 7.4v. Also put some SSD 1.55 wheels with some 1.55 Pitbull Growler tires. Installed a Lit Led HV light kit I think looks awsome. Just waiting on body trim pieces

I wish I could see it with black trim pieces instead of chrome. That red looks great.

You used automotive paint on a Lexan body?

Thanks! I assume you paint that on the outside of the body, correct?

agreed on that being an awesome color, but where the heck was that intended to be used on the INSIDE of a 2001 Taurus...


That being said, using interior trim paint is a brilliant idea! lots of cars color match to the outside color, but with a (presumably) more plastic friendly paint chemistry. I should see if I can get the same shade of silver found on my full scale 16' taco...

That burgundy looks AMAZING

Nice choice on the 1.55" wheels and tires looks very oem.

Are you going to de-chrome all the chrome parts ?

I'm in the process of deciding to pick up all the parts to do the Bronco body on my kit as well. Then painting it bright red, orange or gun metal silver with a black topper, then using Super Clean to de-chome all the chrome parts.

I can't wait for you to get the rest of the trim parts and to see some completed pics.

Nice Job.
