RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler Build Full Mod

Hey Folks here we have my project of the year my TRX4 Honey Comp Crawler Build I have done so much to this rig and still have plenty left to go and hope to finish before years end but its already extremely capable and quiet also its building its character with all the body modifications left to go most of the parts will be mentioned and will provide photos of this great truck!

Im using the Flysky GT5 6 channel and its insane the best controller period simple very versatile and crawler responsive on torque....

Brands used on the build as follows:

Hot Racing (All Housings & All mounts & All links & All Posts & Alll Spacers & Most Gears & Accessories and the Front battery tray)

Yeah Racing (Brass Wheel Hexes & Alloy Axle Housings & Portal Gears)

Samix (Titanium Links & Servo Horn)

Holmes Hobbies (ESC & Motors & Bypass adapters)

Reefs Rc (Servos & Grease)

Proline (Tires & Bodies)

GearHead (Wheels & Lights & Cables)

Holmes Hobbies Custom Pro 20 t motor
Holmes Hobbies BR-XL ESC (Next install)
Reefs RC 777 servo (Next install)
Hot Racing (all around)(overdrive gear in front & stock in back)(driveshafts)(shocks) (Frame Bumper Mount)
Yeah Racing (diff covers and brass wheel hexes & steel portal gears & Axle Housings)
Samix Traxxas TRX-4 312mm Titanium High Clearance Link Set (10)
GearHead Ez lock trail king Wheels (Installing gearhead black 12pack ezlock wheels)
GearHead Six Shooter and TrailPod LED's (THANKS RPP Hobby YOU BEES BUZZZZ)
Wertymade stubby chino edition bumper

Traxxas 8062 Axle Shaft Front Heavy Duty Portal Drive Input Gear Left & Right
Traxxas 8061 Axle Shaft Rear Heavy Duty Portal Drive Input Gear Rear Left & Right
Apex RC Products RC Remote Electronic AUX Channel On/Off Switch #9025

All Body Mods used Hot Racing Parts and Hardware.

As you can see in the photos the truck is going through a couple of transformations this year as far as upgrades left and currently finishing are the Axle housings the ESC and Servo as well as lights and another body questions comments suggestions!

Right now this Rig with the Hobbywing QuicRun 1080 and the Holmes Custom Pro 540 20T motor and the front hot racing overdrive beveled diff gear and steel portal shafts and the Reefs Raw 500 Servo this thing really gets through most rocky situations so I can't imagine what it will do when I switch to the Holmes BR-XL ESC and the Reefs 777 14volt servo and the beveled stock diff gear in the back well ill make another video after the build thread goes up so on and on we build and Buzzzzzz....... Aloha.....

Boy you are not playing around.

I love the cab and chassis look!

I like the idea of the lay down servo mount. Does the lay down mount attach to the stock servo mount? Iím trying to figure that out.

Do you have a link to that specific mount?

Hey man, are there any pros to that steering arm being bent to where it sticks out farther away from the axle? Does it allow for more steering angle?

Also, whereíd you get that stubby bumper from? Iíve been looking for something like that for my TRX4 [emoji106]

hey man the servo does attach to the stock servo front mount even though I used the hot racing mount should fit. im using the SERPENT servo mounts they come in a couple of different configurations ill attach the one used you can get them at Amain or Ebay for 25 bucks and they are aluminum.
and the side is the best spot for torque and longer steering radius im very happy in this belly position I have tried all the ways to mount the servo on a TRX4 and this by far wins! my four wheel steer project that is basically the twin sibling of this truck ill start building next month both servos are side mounted... Buzzzzz Buzzzzz.......

Great! Thanks!!!

Steering trim at 100% with no chassis interference?!?!? Wow! Thatís awesome!!!!

Definitely going to check the mounts out. Every little bit of extra steering helps!


Iím a GT5 fan as well. Excellent for the price point and being able to set 1 radio up for multiple rigs is Awesome.

the important thing to know about the 100% steering that I found is the fact the FlySky GT5 can center your servo regardless of trim once you set EPA on the radio its centered as far as equally going in opposite directions then you trim to get the wheels centered and wow fun the Flysky will go to 120% but I like my servo quiet and not crunchy..... ill post a video of the turning radius....

So I finally got all the Hot Racing Post Links on my TRX4 Honey Comp Crawler installed and they all are functional, the back Posts 58mm for the Body Bungee Strap/Hook , the front 58mm Post is to keep shorty lipo battery snug, the center posts 33mm is used to manage the ESC Motor Cables and the 43mm is used to manage the lights switch accessories cable also a 33mm and (2) 18mm were used on the front battery tray and 8mm on the Cab Body Bumper Modification and all the spacers used were also HOT racing love the look the functionality and customization it has given my Rig ....

I have to say im pretty happy with the Hot Racing Brand even thought I have spent an arm and a leg on their parts only 3 parts of hundreds used on various cars and Rigs of mine have failed or not installed properly!!!
Buzzz..... Hot Racing Buzzzzz...
