    TRX-1 Project

    Been meanin to start a thread here about this TRX-1 That I picked up about a month or so ago.

    She's a little bit rough around the edges, Tires are dry rotted and the rear wheels are chipped/cracked, which kinda sucks, as I wanted to keep the stock fronts-rears, which are pretty much impossible to find. But it is what it is. Body has a few cracks, that I can/will reinforce.

    I'm happy with it, and all in all it isnt that bad, it definitely will need a complete tear down and cleaning thats forsure. Looks like previous owner had cut/shaved the rear tower, as you can tell in the pics, the upper shocks are mounted to where the wing wire should go, and there is only one actual shock mount hole. But I got lucky and found a NOS 4707 rear tower.

    Also scored another pretty much mint "used" body and it has a stylin 90's paint scheme. But was run on a Losi at the time and has a TL painted on the top side, still a cool find, Picked up some A&L wing wire mounts also, as these were missing

    So picking up a few things here and there for it, As for wheels I guess I might just go with the Traxxas 1774,1775's Unless you guys have a better suggestion that would resemble the original wheels?

    This will prob sit on the back burner for now, untill I get my Blue Eagle LS all back together. (which is almost done)

    But heres a few pic's as it sits right now.

    It doesn't look too bad at all Dave. I'm not a real buggy fan myself but as rare as the TRX-1s are its definitely worth giving it a rebuild.

    The only one that I managed to find was hurt so bad that I just parted it out. I'll check my parts box out and see if I have anything left.

    Hey there Marv!

    Yeah it should clean up pretty well, if you get a chance to check your parts box, let me know if you got any extra stuff, Maybe we can strike a deal

    Howdy Dave!

    I'll have a dig and see what I can find for ya. It might take a while to find that particular box as my youngest demon uses my toy room as her overflow storage area when ever she " cleans" her bedroom.
