you have to get to a certain skill level before the truck is the limiting factor


a good driver using a rustler will beat a poor driver in a T4 or XXX-cr-t every time

if everyone here thinks that the nitro revo(yes i know this is an electric forum) is such a bad machine then try taking that noise to the nitro forum were we are discusing the new revo and also go to all the revo forums on here. some of your guys info isnt that creditable. have you ever had a revo(some of you probably havent)? for you to bash something you havent had is not the way to do things. i could bash the emaxx and esavage and t4 and etc. but that doesnt get you any were. RTR stand for ready-to run.... some may say ready-to-race. ready to race is just stating that you can take it out of the box and race it as it is, doesnt mean you will win. in my opinion dont bash something you dont know just becasue you read something over in the chat room about someon buying a revo and having problems. revos are VERY durable. dont believe go to those forums i was talking about and find out for yourself from people that "actually" have them.

THEY REALLY AREN'T A RACE COMPANY AT ALL, THEY JUST MAKE BASHING DIRT TRUCKS INSTEAD AND SAY IT'S FOR RACING. DON'T TELL ME TO LOOK AT THEIR PAST AND SEE THE SRT COMPARED TO LOSI OR AE.

WHO AGREES!?

This is electric off-road not nitro.Most of the electric traxxas you can race. But why do they use Ready TO Race for the E-Maxx.

thats what im saying, it attracts so many young kids to them because they think they are getting a racing e-maxx.

and of corse the platnium edition revo is a race truck so much over the 3.3r or the 2.5r

Ok, my driving sucks (and it was the first run on a new track ) but you gotta admit the brushless with lipo power is fun!

Let's see some video postings instead of blog bashing!
