Further Description/Back Story I bought this Trx4 around 2 years ago, not long
after I finished restoring a Tamiya Super Blackfoot that I got for Christmas back in 1993.
I think that’s what got me back in the hobby.
This project started as a scale version of the original Bigfoot until I realized that it would have limited off-road capability if I had the tires close to the fenders like the original.
That’s when the “79 Beast” was born. I wanted a truck that would laugh at the snow and mud
and it does just that.
