Traxxas 4-Tec Workbench Project

Traxxas 4-Tec Workbench Project

Workbench Project: Traxxas 4-Tec

Well, here is another one of my crazy project’s. You see, in my garage of RC vehicles I have this. A Traxxas 4-Tec from a few years ago. I won’t lie, it is beat. I know it’s not a racer, but rather a basher. I had a hard time tracking down a new lower chassis for this one when I broke it a while back. So I fabricated an aluminum chassis for it. It ran great for a little while, and then got stuck in the corner like I’m sure some of you’re projects have. (You know who you are)   So as I start this project of bringing life back into an old dog, what tricks do you think are appropriate for this one?? I want reader feed back and ideas on this one.  Not all the parts I have are in the picture, I still have the basics for the car. front bumper, shocks, slipper etc.
The car isn’t as popular as it used to be. So for some of you, it could be a vintage rebuild.  But let’s start at the beginning. Here is what it looks like now. I will be updating in my RCCA Blog as the project progress.  Keep in mind, for those of you who suggest a 3 cell lipo and brushless…. You have the wrong car. Did I mention belt drive??  🙂 🙂
