Questions & Answers

Do you think it will work on a Traxxas Slash 4X4?

Unless you do a lot of custom work and fabrication, you can't make this fit.

Do you know if this towing equipment will work with the new TRD 4 Bronco?

That is not the case, in my opinion. The light bar fits into the outer carrier bar of the land rover and it is perfectly fitted to the land rover body

the TRC-X system be used with it Does it really matter what sport I play?

You are right, of

What effects does the TRX4 diff have on the transmission or the transmission options?

I am not in favor of it The receiver/controller box must have an open port to connect the receiver. That's all there is to it. How you route the wiring would be the only thing that could affect the transfer case or transmission options. You can follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer to wire the device. As long as the wires do not interfere with the moving servos or actuators, everything should be fine.

Selected User Reviews For Traxxas 8030 TRX-4 Complete LED Light Kit, Black

Works with Traxxas Link Bluetooth, but doesn't work with the XLink It is not possible to link
3/5

In light of that, I must admit that Traxxas needs someone in their support team with some sort of experience in writing user-friendly The YouTube software provides everything you need for this purpose, but with the documentation attached to the product, we could do Particularly for the price. There are so many things that you learn after the fact about the service. This TRX-type device has The Traxxas Bluetooth Link system will not work with the 4 light kit. The whole reason I chose these lights over a different brand was because of this feature. It is of course Traxxas' policy not to provide any user friendly information about this, so when you use the Traxxas app to turn on the lights, you are greeted with the warning "NO TRAXXAS LIGHT AMPLIFIER. ". The plug has a channel 1 adapter, and you would think that Traxxas would figure out some of these stupid problems and fix them with how many years it's I'd like to talk a little bit about the lights and then about Traxxas' business practices. Besides being bright and easy to install, the lights are also easy to adjust. You can use the TRX instead of As for the mechanical parts, the headlight and taillight screws are very tight, and you will wear out the screw very easily if you do not have a good driver to remove them. I have to say that the screws on both the headlight and taillight are very tight and easily stripped. I found the wiring kit to be easy to figure out where everything goes, but you have to DRILL a hole in the top of your TRX if you want this kit to work. Wires from the light bar are fed down through holes 4 and 5. On the wires of the light bars, the clips are so wide that you will have to drill a large hole in your new TRX-to connect it You may have some concerns about your warranty with Traxxas because of Number 4, which is unsightly and may affect your warranty as well. It is natural to assume that Traxxas would prepare a pre-drilled hole that would have made it easy to feed wires or provide some other type of solution given that the TRX was designed to be used with lights. By simply moving the light bar switch left or right, the brightness of the light bar alone can be changed. As your light amplifier does not have a power switch, remember that your lights will always be on when the power to your truck is turned on unless you disconnect the plug. Because of its price and the fact that it does not even work with the Traxxas Link app, I am very angry with this product. Traxxas is having some serious issues with its product development team, which is responsible for making their products more innovative. This is especially true of their Due to all of the DJI products out there now, people want to operate their hobby products via apps. As a result, Traxxas uses technology and sensors that are more than a decade old to provide a user with an app that is less than satisfactory. Despite this, you are required to buy an overwhelming amount of Traxxas parts and adaptors, as well as increasing amounts of wire, adaptor, and wiring. In Traxxas's case, it is a failure to innovate their staffing and company thinking that has created their problems. The local government is keeping people in jobs that have years of R/C experience, but none of the modern day skills required for digital connectivity. Thousands of complaints have been made about their lack of innovation when it comes to connectivity, which is evident even in their flagship products like the X-peria Z It costs more than a thousand dollars to buy a Maxx. There are plenty of people that have the experience from the recent changes in the economy and job market that can help Traxxas innovate to meet the demands of the modern day. The time is right for them to start thinking about the future.

This product looks and works good, but it is not up to par in functionality
3/5

It makes the truck come to life, but I was disappointed that a few of the lights did not illuminate in the headlights and tail lights. Even for the brand name of Traxxas, they appear to be weakly constructed and dainty. The connector and harness that go to the voltage controller are very cheap, so I am not sure how long they will last. I've tried both kinds of bluetooth modules, but I never managed to get the light to turn on/off. There is an App for the TRX4 but it doesn't work with the headlight switch. I had low expectations for what Traxxas could offer as a product overall.

The look is great, but there is IBPS MCAS NCAS The TRX- series can be used with these The body shell of the Defender 4 is very well designed and looks fantastic
4/5

Although I had the lights powered by the output from the receiver and wired into Channel 1 of the receiver, the lights could not be controlled. Although I do not have direct control (there are no extra switches on the remote control) it would be nice to have an option to enable the lightbar only when the low ratio option is selected, for instance. The Defender's new wings are expensive for what they are, but they do look nice.

You want to make sure you don't lose any screws or strip them out
5/5

So, take your time! Your Defender will look great with this look. This product is extremely expensive, but it is worth every penny. Because Traxxas makes it, the only light kit that looks great and fits very well is this one. After I installed the light kit correctly, I also added a pair of rear bumper lights that operate with the rest of the system when the esc is powered on. In order to connect the bumper lights to the main light cable wire coming from the headlight power supply, I spliced the wires together. However, I did not have the correct female plug so I would have plugged them into the light power supply. Despite the frame being a bit thick, the power supply screwed in perfectly. In order to secure the wire and strengthen the body at the same time, I used Gorilla tape on the inside of the body. The plugs and wire on the plugs seem a bit thin and light duty, but we'll see how well they hold up as time goes by.

A major goal of Traxxas was to design and build it to be easy to install and stable
5/5

The same thing happens both ways. As expected, it is the stock kit, which works well, installs easily, and is able to light up a room just as well as a portion Although I have never been a fan of rock lights, I would like to be able to turn them on/off with a simple switch. While this is going on, simply unplugging the wire will do There are two light bar modes, bright and brighter, the switch of which is conveniently located on the backside of the lamp. After crawling for several hours through the same area before the lights, I did not notice any extra battery drain (my biggest concern). It is a pleasure to know a nice person like her. I would change the headlight to have a single LED in a bucket style like the real thing rather than a bunch of little ones like the real thing and ditch the bugeye design. Personal preferences aside, that's just how I am.

Ensure that screws are not overtightened
5/5

It is not as hard as I thought. A little patience is required to install, but it was much The instructions can also be found in a YouTube video. Transcript of TRX- A set of Allen wrenches is already included in 4. The body reaming tool is all that is needed. Here is a photo showing how the lights were tested before installation.

I found it to be effective
3/5

I'm impressed by how bright the lights are. In exchange, however, you have to spend $80-plus. The product should at least have arrived in a box and In addition, it would really be nice to have more lights in the back rather than just the small top light. The switch on the high and low level and the light bar are wonderful features. There could definitely be a brighter light in the headlights. For the price of $80, you might have expected the lights to have some type of function. It would be nice to at least have turn signal lamps or There will be no more purchases of this.
