Default Any disadvantage of the G wagon vs the rest of the lineup?

I want to buy a TRX4, the choice of body is not that important to me, I like them all except for the tactical.

I looked at the price at my LHS and they are all around 640-650$ CND except for the G wagon which is on sale at 580$ CND.

Is there any drawback to this body style vs the Defender or Blazer

Three new threads in one day. You're not going to gain any friends that way so be mindful of that.

The Defender has a larger wheelbase and is heavier. I'd suggest the Blazer over the Defender just because if you ever want another body your selection is very limited with the Defender wheelbase.

there is a whole section of this forum dedicated to the TRX4. There probably is an answer in here somewhere

It may just be on sale based on not being popular, or dunno

The Gwagon has the same wheelbase as the Blazer. Unless you really want a Denfender, stay away from its longer wheelbase, and top heaviness, if you want the advantage. Gwagon also has low profile tires, so I imagine it is not as good on the rocks. Same as in real world, the more sidewall and less rim, the better it will play in the rocks. That aside Iíve seen some positive remarks on the Gwagonís abilities. The new defender colors are pretty sweet too.

Thanks a lot, the smaller sidewall is a deal breaker for me. I called a few hobby shop near me to know the boxing day prices. I found a red bronco for 530$ cnd before taxes, thatís 404$ usd, fantastic price for north of the border.

The Blazer looks good also, but it is more than 100$ more around here.

Iím going to buy it tonight.

Nice! Thatís a great deal. If you like the Gwagon though, you can always add new rims and tires. I myself love the Bronco and Blazer.
