Default TRX4 Sport or Deadbolt II - Opinions requested

I thought I had my mind made up BUT - then I saw the TRX4 Sport- it's like 40 bucks more But it has things the Deadbolt needs (i.e. metak links etc.) BUT I really like Axial products- I have an old AX10. And I really like the Deadbolt body- So those are my choices- any opinions please? Thanks in advance

Trx4.

If only because Traxxas uses better plastics than Axial.

What did you end up with, oldblue?

I just got a TRX4 Bronco and I love it. I splashed out for the light kit and it looks the business.

I had an SCX10 (original) and it was not impressive. The plastics were too soft and it kept falling apart. Traxxas did it right. The only thing I would like to see from them is to make the trigger and steering wheel action a bit smoother over time on their RTR transmitters. They get squeaky and sticky after not very much time.

Howdy- I went with the TRX4 Sport kit- I really wanted the Axial because I wanted the "Scout" body but yeah all that plastic under carriage kinda put me off- I really like this truck- and I'm having lots of fun with it

I like Axials, got 3.

Everyone in our crawler club pretty much agrees the TRX-4 Sport is the best bang for buck crawler out of the box.

Good choice.
