Traxxas TRX-4 Takes Realism to the Xtreme  [READER’S RIDE]

Glenn Castillo loves the way his TRX-4 drives, so he put his focus on increasing his truck’s looks and scale realism—a feat he achieved spectacularly in our opinion! He didn’t like how Traxxas covered up the windows so he cut them out and re-glassed them with thin Lexan. He added some nice fender vents, door handles, wipers, and a set of LED lights from ClubRC. He gets extra illumination from a Pro-Line light bar up top and some Axial light buckets on the front bumper on either side of the Integy winch. He made himself a custom interior out of aluminum and foam pieces, then added some scale accessories from Yeah Racing, plus a driver figure (Madison from Fear the Walking Dead) and handbuilt a speaker box out of a pair of paint can caps for his repurposed RAM diesel engine sound unit. To take on the sharp volcanic rock near his home in Honolulu, Hawaii he bolted on a set of GMade beadlock wheels wrapped in Pro-Line’s BF Goodrich KO2 tires. We’re not sure what we’re more jealous of: the truck Glenn drives, or where he gets to drive it!
