your advice can't be taken serious as you obviously don't like Traxxas products!

If a revo has the right stuff done to it, its not a bad truck.

I would get a 3.3 chassis for it, better servos, rpm a-arms and better wheels and tires. It would really help though to let us know what you want to do with the truck, bash or race or both...

I think you should just take it to your local track and practice with it and if you brake anything or dont like something about it then just change that part.

I would start by upgrading the chassis and wheels/tires, then some better servos help... Then a motor...

I would go with a Airtronics 94358-9 servo, get rid of the reverse (traxxas forward only kit), motor saver air filter, if you want to get a pull start Traxxas makes one, or you can get a back plate (also from Traxxas) and get a starter box from RD racing products...

Dosnt traxxas make alot of hopups for the revo. For a pipe I would use and AE one such as the one that goes on the rc10gt.

A really great motor for the revo is the os 18tz. It is way better than any motor traxxas makes.
