Introducing TRX-4M, a new way to experience all the fun, adventure, and scale realism of the TRX-4 in a 1/18 platform. TRX-4M bridges the gap between the small crawler scene and 1/10 scale quality and performance. Oil-filled shocks, steel frame rails, and a smooth running drivetrain give it true outdoor capability over rocks and through grass and streams. The tight turning radius and precise throttle control give it fantastic indoor maneuverability.


TRX-4M is the perfect size to fit in a backpack for fun on the go. It’s small, powerful, and maneuverable so just about any space becomes an instant trail or crawling course. Whether it’s a mountain of books indoors or a rock garden in the backyard, TRX-4M is always ready for big fun and adventure.


TRX-4M is equipped to take on tough off-road terrain with grippy soft-compound tires, precision-engineered 4-link suspension geometry, and smooth oil-filled shocks. High center ground clearance, big approach angles, and low CG give the TRX-4M impressive capability everywhere it goes.


A full 45° steering angle gives TRX-4M an exceptionally tight turning radius and extreme maneuverability in small spaces where every inch counts. A heavy-duty 2065T steering servo delivers powerful steering authority, even on thick carpet.


TRX-4M’s oil-filled GTM shocks offer smooth suspension damping to keep the wheels firmly planted on uneven surfaces. The added control also keeps the body from bouncing around on rough terrain for a more realistic driving experience.


The innovative clipless body removes and installs in just seconds with no clips to lose or frustrating hook and loop tabs. Tough, highly detailed ABS bodies feature molded-in color with a deep glossy finish that won’t chip or scrape off.


TRX-4M is the truck that goes where you want to go, without boundaries or restrictions. Only Traxxas’ fully-waterproof innovation gives you the freedom to drive through wet grass, puddles, and streams that force others to turn around.


TRX-4M captures all the functionality of a full-size TRX-4 in a smaller 1/18 size for an all-new driving experience.
