This is THE very first serious competition car that Traxxas ever made in order to pick a fight with Team Associated and Team Losi. It was launced in 1991. And it's an awesome construction - it looks like a 20** car! Wide, slim, long wishbones. And the plastic in rims and chassis look like nylon, seem to be very beefy and strong! The drive shafts are also very impressive, made from plastic - looks a bit like those Schumacher used to make.

I bought this car on ebay/US in december 2010 for USD 150 plus shipping. It came with a manual, which is extremely well made! It has a double body mount at the front, so I suscpect it has had a truck bodyshell or something before.

Bombshell! The car is METRIC!!! So Tamiya/Kyosho wheels, bearings etc will fit.

I managed to source the following missing parts:
-wing wire + mount
-alu wing mount (on shock tower)
-original, unused wheels (2,1')
-TBG repro shell
-original NIP decals and window masks

Thanks for looking! :-)

14th august 2014: Sold for NOK 1500 to my friend Tomas Karlsson in Sweden. It will be his new Nordic Vintage Challenge racer :-)

19th august 2014: Deal cancelled, as he suspects it's not a TRX-1 but rather a Traxxas Eagle LS... need to investigate further...

12th january 2016: And it was... so I sold it on ebay as a TRX-1 / Blue Eagly hybrid for USD 89 to a guy in New Zealand of all places :-)

New body and decals Slim!!! Original ebay ad Fantastic manual!




Love the shell - chassis has so many elements of RC10 - well if you are going to copy/emulate then why not pick the , then, leader



This is a great car. One day I will add one to my collection.



awesome !

my buddy got one of these when they came out, as he was fed up with everyone all racing gold tub RC-10s.

seems like you got it for a decent price too !

Nice find! Very competitive car back in the day. Excellent vintage racer today!



Very cool retro racer! Love these old vintage classics mate they seem so simple but have a design that's so well tuned! Great stuff! and agree the drive shafts look ace!



Really cool vintage racer...would love to see it on a track against the competition.



And it turned out to be too good to be true... It's in fact NOT a TRX-1, but a Traxxas Eagle LS... (a truck)
