Default More TRX-4 Bodies and Parts

The 1:1 looks a lot like a toy, with those goofy big Hotwheels wheels Mercedes will sell ya.

It looks a little more serious with some off road wheels and tires.

I didn't notice this. The G-Wagon has side pipes.


I could see adding those side pipes to a Bronco.

Like rjk said, the 1:1 also looks like a toy. It looks better in blue.

Nope. Nor do we know the price. There was a video on Facebook and the tracks look awesome - very pliable. I'm interested, but I'm guessing they are going to be somewhere around $300.

Good point. The redneck with a paycheck white trash with cash driver of my Bronco would definitely add these to his.

This really needs a proper Mercedes color to have a chance at looking good. I'll reserve full judgement until I see a silver one with black fenders.



Also, why doesn't this have bolt on plastic fenders? They get badly shoehorned on so many bodies and this is one of the few trucks that could use them.

G-Wagon body does absolutely nada for me. Never cared for them in 1:1, and the RC body just looks "cartoonish" to me. It may play well with the Euro crowd though.

I guess Iím in the minority saying that I like the G wagon. As mentioned earlier, black or silver would be the right colors for it.
Also would like to see someone make an interior kit for it. And of course the seats would have to be leather!

They do look good durok. My only concern would be making an already top heavy rig even top heavier. But, it would look sick all scaled out! My mind is going to painting and weathering it up just right!

would be a good excuse to put more weight to the axles like steel c-hubs and knuckles there's still some room and maybe a brushless system as well ..... i love the look of the old lady if the price (and shipping) is right ...

So true here. More weight more scale. Especially on hil climb. Video no need in slow motion anymore

Black G500, much better.



Somewhere I read this is going to be a European release then eventually come to the US but who knows. You can preorder from RC Mart now if you have to own one.
