Default UPS Delivery Vehicle Testing

Created a little climb and crawl test course, testing out this off the grid delivery capabilities lol. Anyways, Traxxas TRX-4 will be next on this course to see how it does.

When I first read your title, I thought maybe you had an actual UPS delivery van body ! That could be tough to do. I actually heard they have their trucks custom built, and then taken apart or destroyed when they are done with them? So no body can have there old used truck shells...

Anyhow thanks for posting the vid...

i actually really enjoy he UPS truck (axial SCX10) more over my Defender (TRX-4) because the UPS truck feels so much lighter and is easier to climb, even with the 12T, and then TRX-4 has the 21T, however with the TRX-4 you have more control in the slow climbing, just gotta be more careful because its a heavier vehicle and also a lot more top heavy. SO i suppose the TRX-4 feels more like a real car would climb maybe?? Anyhow, im thinking about putting a 35T motor in the TRX-4, mounting the battery to the front more and see how well that performs over the same course. Any suggestions on a 35T motor guys? I had my eye out on the RC4WD 35T motor, they are about $40 or so.
