If you thought the TRX-4 from Traxxas couldn't get any cooler, you just lost that bet. On Thursday, Traxxas announced the new TRX-4 Tactical truck, a variation of the popular new crawling platform. This truck seems to have all the fixin's that the Defender does, but with a military-esque design.
It still features the two-speed transmission, the remote-locking differentials, and aluminum GTR crawler shocks, but adds the new lightweight body to lower the overall center of gravity of the truck for greater speeds, tighter handling, and improved technical crawling, which sounds like a win for all the guys who feel the Defender body is too heavy. Also new are the military-inspired wheels for that, well, tactical feel.
Oh, and they're going to sell for only $419.99, a drop in price of $30 compared to the Defender!
It's due to be available early November, so get your pre-order in right away!
