Awesome rig! Looks incredible runs great out of the box. The transmitter included with the kit is actually better then I expected, 3 channel with plenty of adjustments. Great "scale" truck with tons of upgrade parts if you want to go that route. My only gripe is that the rear bumper, roll bar, and rock sliders are all plastic.
Nice truck! Went thru all the screws and everything was tight. I had read online that sometimes RC4wd sends trucks out with loose or missing screws. All I can say is WOW! Thanks to Amain hobbies it was sent fast and secure. You have a new customer.
great truck from rc4wd, got mine from amain with few mods on the leaf spring and I love it!!!
Fully in love with this little trucks it's so smooth on the trails and a lot better then my scx10s
great scale crawler by RC4WD with a few mods can comp it with ease or for someone looking at getting into comps everything you need in one box. i managed to score mine earlier then expect thanks again for the great service by the Amain team.
This is one great truck. Quiet. Powerful. Single speed great. Installed RC4WD Terraflex Z BOX and rotating shackle on back. Bang zoom what an improvement...!!!
Truck climbs very good. Scale looks. Love it. Tires are great...upgraded to KING SHOCKS. 100 in back...100 in front. Very nice
Great kit. Very quality and the scale look I wanted. Shipping was great and no problems at all.
First RC4WD product I’ve owned and I can honestly say I’m very satisfied. The detail they put into this rig is second to none. No rig is perfect out of the box. This truck performs exactly how you would expect a 1:1 version to. Some people are driven away by it being a leaf spring setup but i feel that’s what makes it so true to scale. The tires are great for trailing out of the box, not bad on the rocks as well. It kinda feels underpowered but it won’t snap any driveline prematurely that way. All in all I think they hit a home run with the marlin crawler. If a true to scale rig is your thing , this will not disappoint.
Love the truck it’s amazing and amain hobbies is a first class company and internet site thank you again for selling me my rc truck
Best optioned scale crawler from rc4wd
Out of the box it crawls great
Love it. Great truck. Make sure to go over nuts and bolts. May want to loctite metal to metal bolts. But overall quality is great. With some mods it can be a very capable crawler.
Good service and fair price. Will deal with again.
Works very well I could not be happier with the scale look an function of the marlin crawler
This is a great truck. I wanted to set it up as a crawler then eventually a tow rig when my F350 body showed up. My main worry was the leafs being too soft, but they have been fine even with two leafs. Please don’t let the bad reviews deter you from this truck. This is the most sturdy and strong truck out of my 3. (TF2, TRX4 and 10ii). The motor is a little slow for my type of driving especially on the stock battery, but on a 2S is a lot better.
The best scale truck I've ever had will buy more I love the details the scale look the performance rc4wd buy far is the best company on the planet with the scale look love the wheels marlin crawler is the best crawler in the world and in this truck you fount it man the quality is 100% on point
Great little trail truck. Good truck for the first timer looking for something a little more scale with good capabilities.
Well there was no Loctite on any of the bolts I am was missing two screws
The box looks like its made of quality cardboard and nice printing. Very descriptive and nice box art. I have yet to open the vehicle box because my wife wont let me. Its for Christmas. I used to really like Christmas but now im on the fence about it. I digress, i own many rc4wd vehicles and have nothing but great things to say about the products and the cuatomer service. I will follow up when i find the hiding spot!
Poor quality, loose, broken or missing parts in the kit or rtr, check everything thoroughly
Rather disappointed with my first RC4WD purchase. It's nice looking, but that's about all I can say. The scale details are good, but their function is very poor out of the box (unless you enjoy rock bouncing). Be prepared to spend time & money to get this thing anywhere close to being trail-worthy. The suspension doesn't work at all ... way too stiff and poor quality. The 'shocks' are just for show, so it's funny that they have a cheap spring and oil in them. I ended up pulling the shock springs in the rear and removing 2 leafs all the way around - this sort of helps with articulation but it's still lacking. Tire foams are too stiff. Getting the body on and off is a PITA. Front tires rub the leaf springs at full lock ... that can be adjusted but then you lose a lot of turning radius. Some loose fasteners and a few bolt heads were stripped, missing loctite in places - so plan to take the whole truck apart and reassemble it correctly with quality hardware, because they don't appear to put a lot of emphasis on QC at the factory. The ESC has a cheap battery connector and no LiPo cutoff, and (as expected) the included NiMh battery doesn't offer much run time or punch. I've only run it a couple times, so I can't speak to durability, but I've read other reviews where they say the drivelines are cheap and break easily. I feel like this truck is priced about 2x what it's actually worth out of the box.
