TRAXXAS RC Rock Crawlers Review

What Makes Traxxas RC Rock Crawlers the Best?

Those who like overcoming obstacles on radio-controlled trucks will like the new generation of powerful RC Rock Crawlers. These cars are specially designed to climb the rocky areas freely and overcome any off-road barrier. Crowlers are able to turn with four wheels and have a separate engine for each axis, allowing them to maneuver on the most steep and seemingly impassable roads.

TRAXXAS states: “Take the pass less traveled!” The unique portal axles of TRAXXAS TRX-4 and TRAXXAS TRX-6 chassis give maximum ground clearance, which allows you to drive without problems on any trail, and the remote locking front and rear differentials, as well as the presence of a downshift gear opens up truly limitless possibilities. Let’s have a closer look at TRAXXAS RC Rock Crawlers.

TRAXXAS TRX-4 and TRX-6 Chassis - The New Era in RC Rock Crawling

TRAXXAS TRX-4 Chassis

All Traxxas RC Rock Crawlers mentioned above are built on the innovative TRX-4 chassis, which is designed to meet the requirements of off-road racers.

Even if the first thing that catches your eye is the replica body of Land Rover Defender, Chevrolet 5 Blazer, Ford Bronco or just a robust Traxxas Sport - the most exhibiting thing about them is the new TRX-4 chassis. When you choose the appearance upon your preferences, you can always be sure of TRX-4 chassis reliability and quality.

Traxxas has an official license to manufacture exact replicas of real cars. But the true-to-scale Traxxas crawlers are not only their appearance, but also design, excellent performance and ease of operation and maintenance.

Durable body made of metal and plastic, powerful bumpers give the model an aggressive brutality. The trucks are not afraid of bumps and collisions, while jumping and steep maneuvers look easy and effortless in its performance.

The powerful Titan 21T 550 brushed electric motor is capable of taking the machine through any off-road terrain, and can be customized to suit your driving style. The unique tread pattern racing wheels provide maximum traction on the road. The high ground clearance (80 mm) allows the off-road vehicle to pass the most difficult sections of the road as effectively and quickly as possible.

Traxxas TRX-4 Land Rover Defender, TRX-4 Ford Bronco, TRX-4 Chevrolet 5 Blazer and Traxxas TRX-4 Sport are appreciated for their endurance, maneuverability and all-terrain capability.

Traxxas TRX-6 Chassis & Mercedes-Benz® G 63 AMG 6x6 Body

The boldest and toughest all-terrain vehicle ever. Traxxas has the spirit of Mercedes-Benz no-compromise approach. The Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 with an officially licensed detailed scale replica built on the new TRX-6™ platform it provides an ultimate driving pleasure for RC crawling gourmands. You can enjoy stunningly accurate body with brilliant LED lighting. Chrome accents, molded trim, and finely detailed lighting elements add to the general appearance. The Traxxas' uncompromising attention to detail makes this TRX-6 a perfect expression of beauty and brutality. Let’s look at some important features:

Maximum clearance. Exclusive portal axles from Traxxas provide huge ground clearance! To achieve the same clearance with straight axles (and not get stuck), your tires must be 2.5 cm higher than the TRX-6. The TRX-6 with its portal axles will easily conquer the obstacle, leaving behind all other competitors.

Increased and reduced gear. When the movement of the model becomes difficult, shift to a lower gear and all six wheels will burst into the irresistible surface. Shift to higher gear and the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 will turn into a desert racing car!

Remote differential lock. Traxxas was the first to create a model with three lockable differentials controlled from the control panel! Leave the differentials unlocked to take advantage of the small turning radius of the TRX-4, even with a 6 wheel drive and a long wheelbase. Lock the front differential and rear differentials to fully increase traction on all 6 wheels of four-wheel drive.

Aluminum shock absorbers. Six oil-filled shock absorbers ensure smooth drive and overcoming of all obstacles in their way. Threading on the shock absorbers allows you to adjust the height of the ground clearance! Specially tuned rear springs provide full rear axle independence for maximum traction on uneven ground.

Wheels 2.2 "Badlock". The unique 2.2-inch Badlock-style wheels with red trim are equipped with specially designed all-terrain tires. The tires are pre-glued and mounted on the model. The standard 12mm steel "hex" is used for compatibility with the full range of TRX-4 wheels and tires.

Buyer’s Guide

Advantages of Rock Crawler over Buggy or Monster Truck

RC Rock Crawler, as well as Buggies and Monsters, are not afraid of water and sand, easy to handle, but the Crawler is a more powerful vehicle with special suspension, designed for more experienced drivers. But TRAXXAS Crawlers are designed to be easily controlled even by teens and adults at the beginning level, but seriously keen on passing complex trails. Crawlers have a strong and robust suspension with a huge angle of free movement, which allows them to climb steep slopes and cross curbs, logs and other high off-road obstacles.

For whom Crawlers are perfect?

Radio-controlled crawlers are designed for professionals who love to conquer seemingly insurmountable barriers. These cars will be the highlight of any holiday gift. Crawlers are equipped with an electric motor, which is protected from moisture and dirt.

What is so Unique about TRX-4 Chassis used for TRAXXAS RC Crawlers?

TRX-4 is a completely new chassis, a unique style and design that incorporates new features, uncompromising reliability and versatility. TRAXXAS Crawlers based on TRX-4 are real machines for extreme off-road adventures. Innovative technology and advanced engineering have come together to create a brand new, hitherto non-existent type of crawler.

  • The power of portal axles

Portal axles raise TRAXXAS RC trucks by creating extra clearance under the center section of the axles. To achieve the same ground clearance with conventional axles would require 2.5cm more wheels than those fitted to the TRX-4.

  • Zero torsional moment

Portal axles transmit torque to the wheels through a gearbox to eliminate torsional torque. That's why all of the Titan 550's torque is converted into directional, powerful, straight-ahead motion, rather than the twisting energy lost that would throw you over obstacles.

  • Rigid steel chassis frame

The super-tough steel chassis with molded crossbars provides an enormous margin of rigidity.

  • Remote differential lock

TRAXXAS TRX-4 allows you to lock the front and rear differentials remotely, with a single push. New enclosed micro cables control the differentials with astounding precision, eliminating any restriction in suspension travel.

  • New aluminum GTS shock absorbers

The all-new oil-filled screw-type GTS shock absorbers guarantee a smooth ride and excellent bump absorption. The housings are made of aluminium and the threads allow for quick adjustment of spring preload and ground clearance.

  • Transmission with downshift

When traffic starts to stall, simply engage the downshift transmission and your TRX-4 gets a reserve of extra torque. The model can adapt to any conditions or driving style.

  • Power system with support for 3S LiPo batteries

The new XL-5 HV RPM and the proven Titan 21T have unleashed its full potential, with a 5000mAh 11.1V LiPo battery pack for an impressive 2-hour drive.

  • TQi with cruise control

Set your speed with the transmitter and adjust it with the multi-function button, reducing or increasing it depending on the conditions.

  • Weatherproof electronics

TRX-4 features fully waterproof electronics.
