Default Traxxas E-revo

It does look pretty sweet. I might have to do the MT thing again.

Yeah I hope they offer a pro version. Better tires and maybe brushless.

Time will tell.

The body looks very nice too. They mention 6S lipos, will Traxxas be making a 6S ESC?

It looks like it is set up to just drop in a new motor and ESC. I guess they figured people were going to upgrade. It will be interesting to see if they release a motor and esc though... the VXXL maybe?

I am definitely going to get one of these...

With a decent brushless system, no question. It wouldnt even be a contest.

Sorry just reread that. I thought you were talking about a nitro Revo not a truggy. I doubt any Revo will ever beat a truggy on a track with equal drivers. The truggys just handle to well.

I know they're estimating, but there's no way it's going to sell at $600. I think $400-$450 would be the sweet spot.
