Metal chassis frame

The chassis consists of two C-shaped steel profiles connected by plastic crossbars, thus ensuring a rigid structure that minimizes twisting. Heavier components such as the battery and motor are stored on the bottom of the chassis to maintain a low center of gravity.

Suspension for Trial

The TRX-4M uses a sophisticated 4-point solid axle suspension with heavy-duty tie rods and ball-joint ends.

Turning angle 45°

The 45° turning angle of the front wheels gives the model an exceptionally small turning radius and high maneuverability of the model, suitable for driving indoors or during trial rides over obstacles. Compared to other models of this size, the TRX-4M has a turning radius up to 50% smaller.

Easy removal of the battery

The well-thought-out system of securing the battery in the bulkhead using a rubber band is a small thing, but it greatly simplifies and speeds up the replacement of the battery. In addition, the rubber band firmly fixes the battery.




TRA97054-1_33.jpg
Terrain wheels and tires

The design of the 1" wheels and tires is taken from the larger TRX models, but even with smaller dimensions, a high level of detail is maintained. Tires with a foam insert and a soft compound provide high traction. The driver is six-edged 7 mm.

tools.jpg
Accessories for normal operation

For normal operation of the Traxxas RC car, you need bolt glue, good quality tire glue, silicone shock oil and a set of screwdrivers. We recommend an affordable set of tools for cars from our range.



The thread or head of the screw is dripped with screw glue, which fixes it and the vibrations caused by driving prevent the screw joint from loosening. The screw adhesive has a special composition that allows the screw connection to be easily loosened with an adequate torque without damaging the screw head. Never use ordinary instant glue, it might be impossible to loosen a screw stuck like this!



Tire glue is used to glue the tires to the disc rim. It is always necessary that the tire is firmly stuck to the wheel rim all the way around! If the tire is not glued all the way around, it may tear. Tire glue has a special composition that is able to glue materials such as rubber or nylon, and at the same time, after hardening, the glue is flexible. Never use ordinary instant glue - it is not flexible after hardening and cracks would gradually form in the tire around the rims!



Sometimes it is necessary to add silicone oil to the dampers of the model. During normal operation, there are only slight leaks of silicone oil on the piston rods of the shock absorber. In the event that the surface of the damper pistons or the condition of the seals is in poor condition, the oil leakage may be large. For these cases, so-called repair kits are supplied. In the range of tuning parts, piston rods with an extremely hard TiN (titanium nitride) coating are delivered to all shock absorbers. Piston rods with a TiN surface are easily recognized by their golden-green color.
