URL: http://tctmagazine.net/winter-2016/first-look-trail-finder-2-rtr-from-rc4wdThat truck continues to provide a great way to explore the backyard or a campsite, and our 7 year old is becoming quite the RC crawler driver.

A couple of months ago Tom from RC4WD asked if we’d like to show off & review the all new version of this truck, the Marlin Crawlers Inc custom edition.  A couple of months ago Tom from RC4WD asked if we’d like to show off & review the all new version of this truck, the Marlin Crawlers Inc custom edition.  

RC4WD Marlin Crawler

Similar to the original, but packed with upgrades and ready to crawl right of the box, this mini-truck is truly worth your time. Some of the top features include:

  • Realistic 1/10 Scale Replica of Marlin’s Toyota Pickup
  • Yota II Ultimate Scale Cast Axles
  • Twister High Torque Metal Gear Digital Servo
  • Chassis Mounted Steering Servo
  • 540 Crawler Brushed Motor 45T
  • Super Soft Flex Leaf Springs For TF2
  • Interco IROK 1.7'' Scale Tires
  • Superlift Superide 80MM Shock Absorbers 
  • TRO 1.7" Stamped Steel Beadlock Wheels
  • Front & Rear Tube Bumpers
  • Customized Marlin Crawler Decals

So far this truck outperforms the original quite well. The upgraded wheels & tires provide ample clearance for great crawling, and I really dig the customized appearance.  So far this truck outperforms the original quite well.

The only issue I’ve noticed is that at full turn, the IROK tires rub just a little. For now, I’ve trimmed the turning radius to account for rubbing, but eventually a bit of fender trimming may be required.

While I’ve only had the chance to wheel this little beauty a few times, it really has been a great addition to our mini-fleet. Now Brenden and I can both enjoy wheeling classic RC Toyota’s at the same time. Alana has asked for a pink Truck, we’ll have to talk about that. 

The truck is available from several RC retail outlets, or directly from RC4WD (URL: http://store.rc4wd.com/RC4WD-Marlin-Crawlers-Trail-Finder-2-RTR-wMojave-II-Crawler-Body-Set_p_5725.html) for $499.99
