That’s like a great outfit, but terrible shoes – [RCSparks] Isn’t it a toy though? No? – [Jem] It’s an action figure – [RCSparks] No this whole, this isn’t an action figure – Well it’s like the equivalent of an action figure – [RCSparks] Yeah but I think it’s baller Honey, this is your new ride, of course, right? – Perfect – [RCSparks] This is gonna go right along with Pinky and Candy but– – I’m getting a whole shelf by the way – Being a TRX, exactly, being a TRX-4, this is one of the more capable vehicles that are out there right now – [Jem] So more capable than Candy? – [RCSparks] Well it’s totally, you’re gonna have people starting to fight online if you say things like that (laughing) – Well, conflict is healthy, conflict is good – [RCSparks] I would say which one is better, you guys can battle it out in the comment section down below, you haven’t driven this model yet – I’ll need an equivalent driver – [RCSparks] Yeah – Or only do a test run – [RCSparks] That’s true, we are gonna have to do a test run so if you could do me a favor, and scoot this one off to the side here, it is lovely, you’ve had a chance to look at it, we’ve had it out on the trail, performs absolutely fantastic Everybody has been waiting (singing victoriously) for Big Papi’s ride – [Jem] What is this? – This is the new 6×6, finally my truck comes in, yes, Maurice has his TRX-4 sport that we all got to see at the TTC which was pretty epic And finally this TRX-4, the, let’s see, Mercedes-Benz, G 63 AMG 6×6 has finally found a new home Thank you my lovely lady Bringing it home, sliding it out Finally, I’ve never, I’ve always wondered what it was gonna be like to see a TRX-4 actually with portal axles as a 6×6 and of course being a Mercedes, it’s actually a vehicle that has portal axles so that’s something I am thoroughly enjoying Thank you – [Jem] Welcome, are you ready for this? – [RCSparks] Of course, slide it out, let’s see what we got – [Jem] All right Oh my God – [RCSparks] (laughs) I hear that a lot – I’ve gotta get really into the deep – [RCSparks] (laughs) I don’t hear that (RCSparks laughs) – Look at this – [RCSparks] What? Yeah slide her down – [Jem] God, I hope nothing important was in there – [RCSparks] In classic Traxxas style, they’re protecting the body by keeping the body pinned in Still with the body pins I’m waiting for the magnets to approach one day – [Jem] I’m disappointed, that’s the only thing I had said that I’m consistently disappointed with is the body pins – [RCSparks] Always with the body pins, look at this Super long wheel wells on here, gonna have to bust out the vacuum I love these rims on here, look at the tire – [Jem] Wow, those are gorgeous – [RCSparks] Patterned tires – [Jem] May I? – [RCSparks] Look at that, oh yeah, please, yeah One of the things I love about the both of these models is the exhaust pipes that have mufflers on either sides, scale, accessories– – Oh wow – Already tacked on Yeah, underneath – [Jem] This is yours eh – [RCSparks] Yeah, yeah, yeah Well you can drive it any time, you know that – We’ll I’ve got to get out for groceries – [RCSparks] (laughs) hey this is a business truck Okay well if you could do us the favor – [Jem] Yeah, do you want me to take out the– – [RCSparks] Just do it nice and slowly – [Jem] Okay ready? – [RCSparks] Yeah, I wanna hear this crinkle (protective plastic crinkling) Can you make some mmhm noises? – [Jem] Awesome, fresh – [RCSparks] Look at that scratch free, oh and there’s– – [Jem] Went back to the grab, oh I love it (RCSparks laughs) Oops, let’s get the little– – [RCSparks] There’s lights on the inside – [Jem] Are they all working? – [RCSparks] Yeah, well those ones are for sure – [Jem] Yeah (protective plastic crinkling) – So satisfying – Oh my Gosh – So satisfying – Oh my Gosh – [RCSparks] Are we even allowed to do this during an RC video? – [Jem] Oh it’s exciting guys, my pulse just went up – [RCSparks] Red and black, beautiful – [Jem] Beautiful – [RCSparks] Maurice is gonna lose his shnit when he comes to see this (chuckles) – [Jem] You better put your name on it right now

– [RCSparks] Well you know one thing I’ve noticed, speaking about names, no Traxxas name on the bodies at all – [Jem] It’s beautiful – [RCSparks] It’s just super sleek the way they’ve done this, an epic platform for an epic body A lot of people don’t like the Mercedes’ G Wagon series but– – I can see why – I’m a fan, it’s boxy – It is very specific Exactly, but you know what, so? – [RCSparks] (chuckles) well said, (laughs) well put That basically makes a statement all by itself – Noted Boxy – [RCSparks] Let’s have a, can you flip that over so we can see the wiring underneath? There, okay – [Both] Wow – [RCSparks] Nice – [Jem] So pretty – [RCSparks] All wired, the light controller right here I’ll probably get in here with some, oh this is the lead wire? This is the one that feeds onto the control box – [Jem] Wow So fully working there, fully working here– – Yeah, I’ll probably go on and tape some of that up so I never kind of catch them on anything and rip ’em Let’s have a look here – [Jem] Nice – [RCSparks] 21 Turn 550, reverse rotation Can I, let me ask you a question there – [Jem] Yeah? – [RCSparks] You see how it says reverse rotation? – [Jem] Yes – [RCSparks] Can you tell me why they would have a motor that would run in reverse on a truck? Why would they have it reversed? – That’s a great question and I would quote my friends on the internet, and– – [RCSparks] No, I’ll tell you right now – Are you gonna tell me? – [RCSparks] It’s because of the portal axles It’s that gear on top of the gear So instead of just the single axle turning, what you actually have is a gear turning the way it normally would on top of a gear that’s spinning the other direction You actually have to– – Oh okay – Reverse the axle– – Okay okay, yeah – [RCSparks] To get it to go forward, which is quite an innovation Just the way the portal axles work Here my darling, there is some saran on the front there, shrink wrap – [Jem] Protective coating – [RCSparks] Handle that blade baby, take care of business – [Jem] Just don’t wanna scratch it (RCSparks laughs) Just be gentle – [RCSparks] I think people are starting to feel awkward watching it.

Four in the bottom? – [Jem] Four, I’ll put ’em in, I wanna do it – [RCSparks] Can you fit all four in the bottom? – We can fit all four in the bottom – [RCSparks] I just think this might be one of the best unboxing videos we’ve ever done – [Jem] And I’m putting batteries in (both laugh) It closes but– – Just four, remember– (Jem yells) – [Jem] It’s popped out – [RCSparks] Oh my Gosh – It’s all over the floor – [RCSparks] It’s a very tight fit – Oh my Gosh, where did my battery go?

(whirring) So unlocked, yeah, there you go So forward all the way locked, all front and back and then I believe it’s just the back and then unlocked – [Jem] Just for the viewers out there, why would you need to lock your differentials versus unlocking them? – [RCSparks] So you can take corners easier and so you’ll use less power, so you can go a little bit faster, right? – [Jem] Excellent – [RCSparks] Yeah unlocking everything and just using unlocked in the back, perfect – [Jem] That way we can all sound smart when we’re in the room – [RCSparks] I think I got it wrong, I’m not sure – [Jem] I’m pretty for sure you got it right (both laughing) – [RCSparks] No I was wrong, I think Look at it, unlock diffs is backwards

and then lock front diff and then lock both diffs I had this one right, and I thought I had this one reversed – [Jem] So right now my diffs are unlocked? – [RCSparks] Right now they are completely unlocked, that is correct – They’re unlocked – [RCSparks] That’s right – [Jem] And this is what locked looks like – [RCSparks] One wheel drive on each one – [Jem] This is locked – [RCSparks] Yes – [Jem] This is unlocked diffs – [RCSparks] (chuckles) okay Beautiful, look at the lights Up orange and the top halos Sweet under here too – [Jem] It looks so tough – [RCSparks] There they are (RCs whirring) Side by side For anybody that’s wondering, that chrome bar on the back, it is plastic Yeah give her a rip, let’s see you do some speed runs here That’s your crawling on 3S, then higher gear – [Both] Whoa (RCSparks laughing) – [RCSparks] G Wagon down – [Jem] She is feisty I said that was faster than I was expecting – [RCSparks] Yeah, 3S power, did you want me to put it on training mode for you or you got it?
