Further Description/Back Story This TRX4 started out as a TRX4 sport. Over the last three years, this is what's become of it! A completely redesigned, line killing machine! Some of the parts on this truck were not meant for this chassis and that really took some time at the drawing board to make everything work as I wanted it to.

The story behind the paint scheme is simple. I make a living running Tacoma Nation, which means I have a huge soft spot for Toyota's. Ivan stewart, being the absolute legend he is, was the perfect choice for the paint scheme.

There's always changes to be made and that's the great thing about these RC builds!
