Default Any revo platinum feedback?

I know this is an MT. I also know more driver's are on this page. Who has driven the platinum on a track? How is it and should I buy one for MT racing? I race truggy which I love but want to race MT as well.


Thanks for any feedback

very nice truck but there are still some things youd need to change on your own and its sooooooo much $$$$$$$$$$ if you have the coin and dont mind saying bye to it then its pretty sweet. otherwise id advise buying a regular model, selling the parts you replace and building it to your specs with the hopups you really need

If I were going to get any Revo it would be the platinum all day. If you bought the rtr and did everything to it to get it to be the same as the Platinum you would have far more invested. Plus the Platinum has parts that are new just for that model alone, I am shure Traxxas will sooner or later release them but not right now.

I havent driven one but this last weekend I seen one in action. It was glued to the track. It seemed so fluid over the jumps and bumps.
