    Looks like it's going to leave tiny drops of oil on your shelf.

    I love those things. If the big toys didn't use up the entire budget, I'd buy some small ones to match.
    For going over stuff:
    2006 Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi


    Ex:2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7 Hemi

    For going around bendy bits:
    2006 Mazda RX8

    For getting dirty:
    2008 KTM 300 XC-W
    2001 Raptor 660 - slightly fiddled with

    Saw one of these at Speed Models in Bellville and I think I heard the guy saying it goes for around R9500.

    Cheers

    That is a bit steep if you keep in mind Traxxas don't really have that much experience building trail cars. You can rather go for a D90 or a axial with a Landy body.

    I think only around 10 or 15 were brought into SA, and went like hot cakes!!

    If ever you are keen, let me know, we have full blown comps at least once a month and some of the driving and rigs are crazy to see.

    The TRX4 chassis is phenomenal out of the box, with the locking diffs, 2 speed box and portal axles!!
    Below is mine, same chassis, just a Chevy cab, and an ESS Dual sound box.

    Awesome. Even if you just pull in on a social crawl day, they happen often.
    PM me your number, will put you on the whatsapp group (if that's ok) then you can see whats going on when and where.

    Reviving this thread. I considered the Lego Defender but a mate of mine convinced me to rather have a look at real fun.

    Anyone built this from the ground up?
    Is there formal clubs, trails or competitions?

    Very interested.

    I do not recall a kit to build locally. Ready to run there are quite a few places selling them. For absolute scale realism I prefer this over the traxxas,

    Bulli is the chairman of the SA Rock Crawling Association - they have events quite often. Next week I believe.

    His number is 0625434275

    There are many classes and expense levels, he is the right guy to chat to.
