My TRX4 life
 
So, I got my TRX4 as a Tactical a few years ago:

Sold the stock TX/RX and replaced with my FrSky stick TX/RX which I also used for my drones.


Quickly changed wheels and tires to BoomRacing Krait beadlocks with some generic AliExpress tyres:

Also added some 3d printed window armor:

the AliExpress tyres were crap, so I changed them out for some Duratrax Approach CR:

Drove around like that for a good while and it performed as intended.
Wanted new looks, so sold the BoomRacing Krait beadlocks and bought some BoomRacing TE37 beadlocks:

Shortened the wheelbase and bought a ProLine Toyota 4Runner body:

Installed a Hobbywing Quicrun 1080 with 3d printed mount, Savx 1283SG, Bowhouse RC servo winch mount with 20kg servo and HeyOK 3 position winch controller.
Also bought different tyres, ProLine BFGoodRich KO2.
Removed the difflock servo's, cables and mount and replaced with spools:

Still running the stock motor, wanting to get a HH motor, but they are hard to come by around here, also installed a 6v 8A BEC for the Savx 1283SG as the RX shuts down when steering to much :ror:

Currently working on the XtraSpeed cantilever kit and will get a new body and bumpers after:

Currently has no RX anymore, waiting for a 5-channel Spektrum so I can use my DX5 Rugged with this one also.
Hope to get it somewhere next week so I can test everything the weekend after.

Yeah, it's a great route built by some awesome people from around there.
About 1,5h drive away from me in Belgium, but very much worth it.

Got the SR515 receiver in, and hooked everything up, set the endpoints and it works fantastic.
Now to find some time to test it in the appropriate terrain instead of the living room :ror:
