Default Should I buy Traxx for my TRX-4 Sport?

Winter is coming and I'm thinking of picking up a set of Traxx for my TRX-4 Sport

People who have them:

- Are they worth the cost?
- How do they handle vs normal wheels/tires?
- Easy to maintain and repair?
- Anything else I should be considering?????

I've been seeing some pop up for sale and am curious if they are actually worth it, or if they are just the "cool thing" right now

I need some unbiased opinions

I don't think they were ever the cool thing. I would say there gimmicks. They might do ok in the snow. But for dry ground tires all the way. There is a video I saw of the Trax driving around a yard on a narrow ledge. The thing looked way too tall a tippy for me.

Probably terrible cog on these.

I've never used the Traxx but I had a set of tracks for my scaler a while back. They were neat for a little bit but not worth the $ IMO.

Lot of low down weight, great for crawling and rough stuff. Be different!

Picked up a like-new set off Facebook for $130, very happy with them

Can't wait for snow

I thought they required the upgraded steering servo & metal horn.

I’d like to see a TRX-6 version so the 2 rear axles don’t interfere.
