Traxxas has prepared a wonderful new product for 2017 - an RC model of the Traxxas TRX-4 expedition car with a licensed Jaguar Land Rover Defender body!


The model is literally loaded with conveniences - remote-controlled differential locks, two-stage gearbox, portal axles, axle gearbox, functional mudguards, very detailed processing. Of course, there is waterproof* electronics and quality design, as you are used to from Traxxas


Chassis of the TRX-4 model

The chassis is built from two steel profiles, which ensure sufficient rigidity of the chassis. Thanks to the engine located in the front part, sufficient load on the front wheels is ensured, so the model can handle driving even on steep slopes without any problems. The battery is located in the axis of the chassis, so the model is precisely balanced and does not tilt while driving.

To reduce maintenance, the lower part of the chassis is equipped with covers, which, together with the mudguards (which are part of the body), prevent excessive ingress of dirt into the model's chassis.

Axles with axle transmission

The TRX-4 chassis uses gantry axles with an axle gearbox. The axle gearbox increases the ground clearance, reduces stress on the differentials, transmission, cardan shafts, and further reduces the torsional force - the model tilts less.

The front wheels can be turned by an angle of 45°, the steering is provided by a Traxxas 2075X servo with metal gears. Thanks to the new chassis, the model achieved a great approach angle.

Two-speed gearbox

The model is equipped with a two-speed gearbox. Gear change is controlled by the red rocker switch on the transmitter. This solution makes the TRX-4 chassis a very versatile model that can drive slowly and quickly - as you need.

Lockable differentials

The differential locks are independently controlled by 2 servos. The power from the servos is transmitted via bowdens to the differentials. The shutters are controlled by a three-position switch on the transmitter and provide the following combinations:

  • Both differentials are open
  • Only the front differential is locked
  • Both differentials are closed

GTS oil dampers

Four oil-filled GTS dampers provide smooth damping and perfect handling. The aluminum bodies of the shock absorbers are equipped with a nut to adjust the preload of the springs. Maximum tightness of the shock absorber around the piston rod is ensured by special sealing X-rings.

Detailed processing

Great emphasis was placed on detailed processing - how else, the model is officially licensed by Jaguar Land Rover. In addition to the detailed body with accessories, the model has functional fenders, detailed wheel suspension. LED lighting can be added as an optional accessory.

Servo steering

The control of the model is ensured by the digital servo Traxxas 2075X high-torque, with a moment of 9 The servo is equipped with two ball bearings on the milled shaft and metal gears for maximum durability. Waterproof* construction.

Gearbox and differential servos

The model is equipped with a total of three waterproof* micro servos 2065 with a torque of 2.5 Two servos independently control the front and rear differential locks. The third servo then ensures the shifting of the two-speed gearbox.

Titan 21T engine

The model is powered by a Titan 21T 550 DC motor. The motor provides smooth operation from low revs. For better cooling, a propeller is integrated in the motor, blowing air to the rotor.

DC regulator

The heart of the Traxxas model is the XL-5 HV DC electronic controller. The regulator is designed for powering a 2-cell or 3-cell LiPo battery. The model can also be powered by 6-7 cell NiMH batteries. Simple choice of driving modes and other settings, using the EZ-SET button. Indication of the status of the controller by an LED diode. LVD protection against undercharging of the LiPo battery. Thermal protection. Water-resistant* construction.

The Traxxas XL-5 HV controller supports 5 driving modes:

  1. Sport : Drive forward, brake and reverse
  2. Race : Drive forward and brake. Reverse is not available
  3. Training : Forward driving limited to 50% power, braking 100% and reverse limited to 50%. this mode is suitable for children
  4. Trail : Drive forward, brake, reverse. Handling near neutral is very subtle
  5. Crawl : Driving forward, brake in neutral and straight back.

Traxxas TQi Four-Channel RC Kit with Bluetooth

In addition to precise and reliable control, the four-channel transmitter is also equipped with a slot for placing a Bluetooth module (sold separately). The Bluetooth module allows you to connect the RC model with the clear graphic application Traxxas Link, which you install for free on your smartphone.

The Traxxas Link app for Apple devices is available for free on the AppStore , the app for Google Android devices is free on GooglePlay .


The Traxxas Link App is a powerful application that gives you complete control over the operation and tuning of your Traxxas RC model with stunning visualization and absolute accuracy of settings. Traxxas Link can display telemetry data that the model provides in real time, such as speed, RPM, temperature, battery voltage and model roll. You can share settings of RC models, you can create any number of profiles for a specific track or users, e.g. children. All in the app with the brilliant graphics that come naturally from Traxxas.

Telemetry options vary by model. It may be necessary to install telemetry sensors to obtain telemetry data. Compatible telemetry parts with this model can be found in the "Accessories - Telemetry" section. More information on telemetry installation here.

Telemetry - model tilt

Using a wireless Bluetooth module (sold separately) and the Traxxas link app, it is possible to track the model's pitch on your phone. In order to display additional telemetry (battery voltage, revolutions, temperature) installation of telemetry sensors is required.

Traxxas TQi receiver

RC receiver Traxxas TQi 5 channel. TSM with telemetry for Traxxas TQi transmitters. Simple operation, pairing with a button. LED status indication. 3-axis MEMS sensors are integrated in the receiver for learning the position of the receiver.

The 5-channel receiver is also equipped with two connectors for connecting telemetry sensors RPM (revolutions) and V/T (voltage / temperature).

Furthermore, a telemetry expansion module can be connected to the 4-pin connector, into which you can connect up to 6 more sensors, including a very accurate GPS speed sensor.

We recommend to buy

To operate the model, you need 4x AA batteries for the transmitter, a drive battery and a charger for the drive battery.


Recommended LiPo batteries

The model can be operated on a 2 or 3 cell LiPo battery. A 2-cell LiPo battery (7.4 V) is fully sufficient for normal riding. A 3-cell LiPo battery can be used for operation with a higher speed range.

  • For normal riding, 2S LiPo battery Traxxas 7.4 V 5000 mAh
  • For normal riding and maximum driving time 2S LiPo battery Traxxas 7.4 V 7600 mAh
  • For demanding users and a high speed range 3S LiPo battery Traxxas 11.1 V 4000 mAh

Recommended NiMH batteries

NiMH batteries do not require precise handling and are therefore suitable if the RC model car is operated by children (NiMH batteries are not destroyed by complete discharge). However, NiMH batteries have a lower capacity and a higher weight, so the driving time will be slightly shorter.

  • NiMH 8.4 V 3000 mAh battery for normal riding

  • NiMH 8.4 V 5000 mAh battery for maximum driving time

Recommended Traxxas Chargers

Traxxas universal chargers can charge Traxxas LiPo and NiMH batteries. Traxxas chargers are a simple and safe way to charge batteries. Traxxas uses the unique iD system , so you're always sure to connect everything easily and safely. There is an integrated chip in the battery connector, which the Traxxas charger automatically recognizes and sets all battery charging parameters for you. More information here.

By adding a Bluetooth module to the transmitter, you get the function of wireless connection of the RC model with the Traxxas Link application, which you can install on your phone for free. We recommend a phone holder for attaching the phone to the transmitter.

A clear graphic application enables simple model settings. The telemetry provided by the model can also be viewed in the application. Telemetry options for specific models are listed in our Traxxas RC Models Telemetry blog.

Lighting - constant

For a breathtaking appearance during evening adventure trips, we recommend fitting the model with complete, original LED lighting for the TRX-4 Land Rover Defender. The lighting not only looks great, but also illuminates the road perfectly. All the LED lights of this lighting are always on. The kit can later be upgraded to Pro Scale.

Pro Scale lighting - multifunctional

By installing the Pro Scale lighting, you get all the realistic features of a real car (functional brake and reverse lights, functional indicators and warning lights, adjustable headlight intensity). The possibility of remote lighting control using a phone via a Bluetooth module. Installing Pro Scale lighting on a Defender model requires a Pro Scale Module and a Pro Scale Lighting Kit.


The winch is an integral part of every expedition model that will pull you out of any terrain. The original Traxxas winch is accurately, to scale, designed for TRX models. The winch is controlled by a remote control and develops a pulling force of up to 4.5 kg. To install the winch, it is necessary to add a tuning bumper - (more in the description of the item).

Transport bag

Transport the RC model comfortably and safely in the Robitronic transport bag. The bag is waterproof and has an elasticated edge that can be adjusted to the model. Thanks to the Velcro strap, the model is easy to carry. The synthetic material can be easily cleaned with water or soap suds if necessary.

Traxx tracks for every terrain

The new Traxx crawler chassis will give your TRX-4 an extraordinary, dramatic look and you'll drive it like a dream through any terrain. Easy to install, this tuning belt kit delivers a virtually unstoppable power and traction upgrade.

Recommended tuning servos, necessary when using optional accessories (increase in model weight)

The TRX-4 model, as one of the most user-modified models, often gains 1-2 kg in weight due to accessories. When increasing the weight of the model, it is necessary to modify the components and use a stronger servo. When using a stronger servo, it is necessary to take into account its current consumption due to the load capacity of the BEC on the regulator. For powerful servos with high current consumption, it is necessary to install an external BEC source, otherwise the controller will be damaged.

Recommended tuning servos:

  • Traxxas servo 2270 16.9 MG waterproof (no need to install external BEC)
  • Traxxas servo 2250 24 MG waterproof (must install external BEC)
  • Traxxas servo 2255 29 BL MG waterproof, with AC motor (must install external BEC)

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.
