In 2015, Mercedes-Benz released the limited-production G 500 4x4 to stake its claim as the ultimate off-road vehicle. Outfitted with a powerful V8 engine, dynamic 4WD system, and military-grade portal axles, the G 500 4x4 had no equal. Traxxas honors the engineering masterpiece that is the G-Class with this highly-detailed RC replica. Based on the class-leading TRX-4, the Traxxas Mercedes-Benz G 500 4x4 features portal axles, a high/low transmission, and locking differentials for superior all-terrain capability. The highly detailed body with unique wheels and tires makes this truck a fitting tribute to the legendary original.

All-New Chassis Design
The Traxxas TRX-4 Scale and Trail Crawler is an all-new design that instantly obsoletes the status quo with greatly expanded features, versatility, and capability. Performance and technology combine in a revolutionary new chassis that looks as good as it performs.
The TRX-4 is fully waterproof, not splash resistant. There is a big difference. Traxxas patented innovation gives you the freedom to tackle creeks, snow, and mud without worrying about water in your electronics.
The Power of Portals
Portal axles lift the truck at the wheels for huge center pumpkin ground clearance. In order to achieve the same clearance with straight axles, your tires would have to be over an inch taller than the tires on the TRX-4.
Torque Twist Eliminated
The portal axles use gear reduction at the wheels to virtually eliminate torque twist. The Titan 550 motors torque translates into straight, powerful, forward motion, rather than wasted energy twisting your rig right off the rocks.
Rigid Steel Frame
A heavy-duty formed-steel ladder frame with molded cross members creates an extremely rigid backbone. Youll feel the difference on trails when navigating technical terrain.
Remote Locking Differentials
Traxxas allows you to lock and unlock both the front and rear differentials remotely from your transmitter. New sleeved micro cables control the differential action for scale appearance, without limiting suspension articulation.
New GTS Aluminum Shocks
All new oil-filled coil-over GTS shocks deliver silky-smooth damping performance and feature threaded aluminum shock bodies for easy ride height adjustments. The convincing scale realism looks great and they perform even better.
High/Low Range Transmission
When the going gets tough, shift into low range for incredible 4WD pulling torque. Shift into high range for blasting down the trail. The TRX-4 Scale and Trail Crawler adapts to any situation or driving style.
3S Power System
The new XL-5 HV electronic speed control brings 3S LiPo capability for stronger, more efficient running. The powerful 21T Titan motor provides torque to tackle the steepest climbs and all-out speed on flat terrain. This efficient system provides up to 2 hours of run time with a Traxxas 3S 5000mAh iD LiPo battery pack!
TQi Radio System with Cruise Control
The Traxxas TQi features our exclusive cruise control for long-distance treks. Set your speed using the transmitter and then use the multi-function knob to fine-tune it faster or slower to match precisely the pace of your caravan of trail explorers.
Accessory Light Kits
Optional light kits (sold separately) illuminate the trail ahead and provide an authentic appearance. A separate regulated power supply ensures powerful lighting with consistent brightness.
