    That's been happening to me also.
    Just be warned:
    Once you start you will not be able to stop.

    I know...That is why I have resisted for this long. I am already making a point to restrain myself and start easy. Just like my full size 40, I am looking to purchase a capable (and durable) rig with an eye towards the future.

    @Stumpalama I'm partial to the Hilux as well, 4 door Majovi body from RC4WD fits the TRX4 wheelbase just about perfect. IMG_20171219_210423007.jpg

    @Pacer Is that the grey Mojave II body on the TRX4 chassis on the top shelf?

    I ended up buying a set of used wheels/tires from an SCX10 2 on eBay for cheap enough. Back in action next week!

    I bought the boys some cheap RC stuff from banggood for Christmas - maybe now they'll stop breaking my crawler for a while. It's getting expensive!

    It's hard finding a middle of the road RC for the kiddos. I got two from BangGood too with 2s lipo. They are fast, but not too robust. Too fast for their own good...
    $75 shipped.

    I'm considering:

    HSP RGT Racing Rc Car 1/10 Scale Electric 4wd Off Road Rock Crawler Rock Cruiser | eBay

    or:


    Redcat Racing Gen7 Pro 1:10 Scale 4WD Electric Off Road RC Crawler Truck, Black | eBay

    Me and the boy love our crawlers. Too much fun. We have 4 axials and 1 rc4wd.

    Any suggestions for a steering servo. Mine went out on the trx4 already. I'm going to make a warranty claim but will start looking into upgrades now.

    I think this is the one I run on 3 of my rigs it’s not water resistant. I have to look when I get home if that’s the correct number.

    Hitec RCD HS-5485HB Digital Standard Servo

    My sons has a stock traxxas. It works well and our local gabby store stocks both.

    I have heard good things about this one
    Savox SW-1210SG Waterproof Coreless Steel Gear Digital Servo

    I think mine is a Hitec too. I replaced the stock one early on with this and a metal "pitman" arm and haven't had an issue since.

    Traxxas will send you a new one, but don't waste your time, it'll just break again. I put a Hi-tec in my SCx10-2 as well as my TRX4. I have another new Hi-Tec that is going in my other TRX, I just haven't been motivated to do it yet.

    It is a hardbody, it’s the rc4wd cruiser body mounted on a shortened wheelbase scx10. It’s a beautiful body, very detailed interior and removable hard top too.

    Traxxas is sending me a new servo but I plan to keep looking since I believe I only have a 30 day warranty. The guy on the other end said it was one of their best servo's waterproof and high torque, Searching says otherwise. @Crusha You were totally right when you said to just upgrade it right away. It wont turn into rocks if the steering is in a bind kind of like 1:1, but if I were rich I would have hydro assist and could turn with one finger. So It won't feel like cheating when I upgrade the servo to somthing with more torque.
