This is one serious RC car.
With Ford Bronco fever at an all-time high, some fans of the Blue Oval's upcoming 4x4 machine are turning to toys to fulfill their needs. Traxxas, a company known for building some of the best-looking and performing RC cars around, offers all kinds of off-road models, including an RC version of the legendary Mercedes-Benz G Wagon, and a 1/10th scale old-school Bronco. But its new product is exactly what fans have been waiting for: a hyper-realistic Ford Bronco Rock Crawler. This officially licensed replica RC is about as close as you're going to get to the real thing for now.
The Traxxas TRX-4 2021 Ford Bronco is a beautifully crafted little machine that features exterior details such as a functional spare tire, optional headlights, brake lights and turn signals, and even tow hooks and a receiver hitch. The chassis boasts heavy-duty steel frame rails, aluminum scale shocks, a dual battery tray, and heavy-duty steel links. For maximum off-road performance, the TRX-4 2021 Ford Bronco gets portal axles, remote locking differentials, a high/low transmission, and a twin friction plate slipper clutch. Hardened steel u-joints and sealed ball bearings keep things reliable under the toughest conditions.
The geometry of this little Bronco is also seriously impressive: raised center driveshafts and suspension links, high steering and drag links, 3.14-inches of ground clearance, and a 45-degree steering angle provides extreme maneuverability. The 52-degree approach angle and 49-degree departure angle mean this RC can scale the steepest of obstacles without getting hung up. Getting this RC car on the move is a Titan 21T 550 motor, a 5000-mAh iD LiPo battery pack, an XL-5 HV speed controller, and a Metal-Gear high-torque waterproof steering servo. This RC is operated by a TQi four-channel radio control system. The mini Bronco rolls on a set of 1.9-inch replica Wildtrak wheels and weighs in at 10 pounds. Without any extras, you can expect to pay $549.95 for this mini Bronco.
