If you’ve ever dreamed about taking your lifted 1972 Chevy Blazer off-road for some extreme rock crawling and trail cruising, but don’t have the cash for a full-blown rig, then this might be the better option. Say hello to the Traxxas TRX-4 K5 Chevy Blazer, a highly detailed remote-control model that has some serious equipment to go with the stunning looks. Now, we’re watching as the Traxxas TRX-4 K5 Chevy Blazer proves it has the off-road chops to match thanks to the following video.
Clocking in at a little bit under four minutes, the video shows a pair of Traxxas TRX-4 K5 Chevy Blazers at the beach, both of which help to demonstrate the model’s impressive agility while crawling over dunes and rocks. The video shows the Blazers handily navigating sharp rocks and steep inclines with ease, the suspension articulating in wild directions as the beefy rubber scrambles for traction.
In addition to the eye-widening crawling, these models also show off some insane detail in the body, with the badging, doorhandles, sideview mirrors, and more all looking spot-on for the K5 Chevy Blazer. Even the suspension and bits under the body look like it was shrunk down from the real thing.
The Traxxas TRX-4 K5 Chevy Blazer is 20.67 inches long, with a 10.63-inch front and rear track. There’s 4 inches of center ground clearance, while the wheelbase is 20.28 inches and the overall height is 11.22 inches. Approach angle is 69.2 degrees, departure angle is 55.7 degrees, and breakover angle is 79.3 degrees. Providing motivation is a 21T Reverse Rotation electric motor, with a two-speed high/low transmission and remote shifting. The chassis is made from a steel ladder frame with nylon composite crossmembers, and the drive system is shaft-driven 4WD.
Pricing for the Traxxas TRX-4 K5 Chevy Blazer is set at $549.95, per the Traxxas website.
