Default Re: RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler Testing on the Rocks

I was finally able to take this Modded Rig out to test out the Hot Racing Gears and final upgrades to the mechanics including the axles and gears and show the new cab body before its honey toast and I took this Rig to some low rocks that are Testy and Pesky Rocks to give it a test in this short clip it makes a step drop and a steep climb on a pretty hard spot but successfully Buzzes on..... BUZZZ..

Cool video!

Can definitely tell your running a steel spur. That distinct sound is unfortunately amplified 100x by recording devices.

Throw a mamba x and revolver into that mix and listen to that recorded symphony.

Pretty neat 3 wheel motion coming up that line.

Were you ever able to pull that with both front wheels down?

Looks like a fun spot!!!

I would have spent a long time shooting and reshooting that line.

Keep it up!

Thanks Brother im working on it!!!!! I think I could pull it off with both front wheels if I hadn't taken out the brass diff cover as I thought I had too much weight my rig is about 7 1/2 pounds so not to bad at all and those Traxxas gears seem to be working ok right now so that's good and Yes that spot is one I go to a lot because the challenge is predictable and consistent and im surprised I made it without that extra brass weight.... BUZZZZZZ.......

Default RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler Build Full Mod

Ok gotcha. I figured it was something along those lines.

I hear you on the rock rash. Lol. When the sun hits the truck just right it looks like I polished the body with an Arkansas stone.

Truck handled that off camber well! Looks good!

Cool!! Lotsa goodies to go in.

Iíve been curious out the Locked up spool.

Iím definitely looking into the DSM systems this year for both of my rigs.

My GSpeed came with some DSM snatch straps and I like them. A more permanent mounting than the snatch straps would be sweet.
