Exclamation TRAXXAS: "READY TO RACE"???RTR

DOES ANYBODY ELSE BESIDE ME THINK THAT IT'S DUMB FOR TRAXXAS TO STATE THEY ARE READY TO RACE? THEY MISUSED THE MEANING OF RTR WHICH MEANS READY TO RUN. I SEE LITTLE KIDS AT SHOPS THINKING THAT TRAXXAS IS A RACE COMPANY CAUSE IT SAYS READY TO RACE! 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!?

Please stop yelling. The Revo is definitely a race truck. But this is the electric section however.

I see nothing wrong with their RTR/Ready To Race statement.
I personally like the new Revo Platinum Edition and plan to pick one up once I sell some stuff.

sounds like everyone on this thread is bored and looking to start an arguement... "mines better than yours" 2nd grade stuff... who cares? It's a marketing statement and it probably works! I race losi and traxxas.. and I still don't think i need to tell everyone how much everyone else sucks... Have fun, enjoy the hobby, and have some friendly competition.

I don't. Ready to race is determined, by the person that is racing. I got third place in a stadium truck race with a stampede, would most say a stampede is a racer? No. Anything can be raced with enough thought in the setup, Look at The Jang's(Ultimate RC) list of traxxas racers, bandit, rustler, stampede and even the Emaxx have been raced with good sucess. I personally have won a couple of races with a stock Emaxx with a few tweaks to help performance. And for the Revo haters out there, the undefeated streak they have at nationals, more than proves their race ability. The SRT is a viable truck for today, I have one with a VXL brushless setup and it handles a bad track better than the T4 (have that to) on smoother tracks they are equal.
