Heck yeah!! Awesome. Great deal with the body. Nice way to compromise a competitive price and still having value by ditching the electronics.

And the body comes with some accessories (rack, fuel cans, boards) and light buckets!

It would appear that Traxxas is listening to us and releasing what we want.

Sweet! No electronics to yank out.

I think they'd really hit the sweet spot if that also came without the body and scale accessories or even a version with just the body. They're so close to what we all expect in a kit (the basics, no electronics and no body).

True. Itís not all bad though because this body set could fetch a decent price in the secondary market. With all the included accessories $50 should be easy, $75 possible. That drops this kit close to $200 like the RBK. Get another $20 out of wheels and tires and you got some TRX4 bones for less than $200.

At least the Sport body looks 1000 times better with the optional grill and light buckets.

Yeah if you're after this body it does seem like a great value. If you dont mind hawking the extras it should be close to $200. I can foresee some sport bodies with all the fixins flooding Ebay soon.

If I could get that without the body and all of the scale accessories, I'd be on that like white on rice.

Sweet! Traxxas has finally put out a kit that we all have been looking for. Even at $280, this is by far the best deal compared to the other "builder's kits" that are on the market now.

I have never been a huge Traxxas fan, but IMO the TRX-4 is the best crawler right out of the box. I bought the first TRX-4 Kit last year and have fallen in love with it.

I think with this kit release it will be hard for the rest of the competition to match the quality, durability and options that this comes with. It looks like Traxxas has taken the lead and they are not looking back!

Yes! I will be getting this!

I gotta believe all the kits being released from various brands had a hand in blessing us with this. When there's healthy competition, there's options!

I like the whole kit and caboodle. I was thinking of getting a Sport RTR + Expedition package, then eventually getting a clear body to paint and replace the stocker, but this looks way better and cheaper! Funny thing is, I still have a Bronco slider chassis I got off eBay last year, which I still havenít built up. Maybe I should just use it, or sell it, because I sort of loath the idea of sourcing a handful of servos and figuring out how to get them all configured. 🤦🏼

What?!? Where did you come across these? Iím about to come down with a case of Traxxitis, and the only prescription is more Traxxas product.

The Book of Faces so cross your fingers that it's not Photoshopped. If it is fake that poster may have to run for safety from the angry mob on Facebook!

A hobby shop posted to one of our local groups they are taking preorders on the Blazers so there is a very high probability of being real.

Oh, and I beat you on posting this by 2 minutes. This is what it must feel like being Frank211.
