Okay, what we have today is a fascinating lineup of parts from trill hobbies. Trill hobbies is cool because they seem to make high quality stuff and they’re very responsive to the latest new products. So, whether it’s scx24 scx103 redcat, you know they they put their ear to their ground in social media and respond with parts that people are looking for. Right away not next year, and something really cool too, is when you get into the upgrade parts brass and whatnot cnc the aluminum. It gets very expensive very quickly. Your your parts become more than the value of the car. More 500 bucks, trill hobby seems to be right there, not too much more than replacement parts, but very trick, manufacturing and i’m here to tell you whether it’s, whether it’s, just you know cheap stuff or whether it’s actually good good stuff. You know durable nice, fitting components engineered for our vehicles, so what i’m going to show you today is a bunch of stuff for the scx103 and i’ll give you kind of the landscape of what else they offer. So they sent this to me a long time ago and i never installed it like. Ah, i don’t need aluminum axles, but i was running my deli dragger and it fell the panhard mount on the axle broke. It just sheared off, hopefully, i’ll, show you some pictures and i’m like, oh okay. What am i gon na do and i was gon na put on a buy another actual uh housing cover axle housing cover, but i said i think it’s gon na break again and then, as i looked in my bin, i said hey what the heck is that So here it is, i saw that last night it is the the axle housing in aluminum and what’s.
Really cool is where the the panhard mount goes in. It’S aluminum very well reinforced it’s, not just gon na break off okay, so so that was cool, and what really it made me uh intrigued was how well the thing fit. You know when you have an axle housing by a third party manufacturer you’re a little bit worried because all the bearings they just press in there you know there has to be exact, fits right, otherwise, it’s not going to work right, and these things went together nicely. So here’s the housing uh everything fit well and now all the this is very high in vehicle. A a belly driver g, speed, titanium links, everything and it just deserves an aluminum housing and it’s a nice smooth material, slippery aluminum that, i think, is going to slide. Well, so it matches the vehicle. Well, i think i have different axle weights in there portal axle weights, but – and i have a samix axle cover, but i forgot – i had a trill hobbies. Axle cover as well. Axle covers are cool to add weight to because they’re very low to the ground. You know the only thing lower than this is the portal axle cover so check this out. This is the trio very nice machining, i’m, not sure if the camera focuses on that, if it’s close enough so that went together really well felt super good and i have weights on it. You know with my with my brass portal, covers, i think, it’s 450 grams forward weight as low as you can get so hopefully i can get some footage of this later, but then the other thing i did was, i went well.
I just put this over here. I went and upgraded the rear as well, and the rear is a little more complicated because now the whole portal covers the portal. Housing is aluminum as well, so it’s a one piece. So i just left the the the trio axle cover because i didn’t want it too heavy and i had i debated whether to put the the the brass portal covers and it’s really just a weight that you could slip on and off and it’s bolted here on. The outside, so i really like that design because it’s not a full commitment. You know when you add weight to the rear it uh, it improves your downhill. It improves your front weight balance, but it can compromise your climbing because now more weights in the back, but then you you want you want to get close to 60 40.. You know, i think my my vehicle since there’s no body on this is about was getting to 70 30., so so so now the uh. The weight, i think, is fairly well balanced, but even if it’s not i can, i can adjust it easily. Take those weights off uh, add weight by putting this trill in the back here. So a lot of options for a very high end vehicle uh check this baby out. I love my i love my shocks, how it sits, but so much so much travel, um. Okay! So that’s real for you not too expensive and really fits well fits perfectly i’ve used ssd in the past i’ve used uh.
You know vanquish and it’s, not it’s it’s right there really. You know they also manufacture. Wheels. Probably should put this make this my trio vehicle. So here are the wheels five bolt so easy to install lots of clearance for portals and not that expensive. You can get this at amazon and whatnot, so they have that and then they have so many parts for the trx4, the redcat, gen8 and also you know axel for sure and then what else do they have um the scx 24? You know that little little mini crawler they have so many parts for that and uh and what’s cool is they’re cheap. You know small parts, small brass parts, not that expensive. So so there you go um trill hobbies. I hope to get uh i’m gon na show.
