Default Traxxas 1/16 VXL E-Revo

Noticed this too right above the 1/16 Slash. It's gonna be a good summer.

I think the market is finaly ripe for this type of car. People are in a pinch for money & a $400 summer racing budget would look very nice if you are out running something like these if they hold up.

Probably $270-280 or so for the Slash VXL and $290-300 for the E-Revo VXL.

You guys need to realize thats just MSRP price, street price is usually ~60% of that.

That still seems high. Hopefully the price will go down once there out for a little. Just like the SC8. It was $700 when it came out, Now its $600.

That's why its the Retial price. It will be much lower than that. Hopefully...

Well, its 4WD, includes a battery/charger, and brushless setup. Its actually not too mini either, as its very close to the size of a 1/10th buggy.

The MSRP is always way higher then the actual retail price. You have to remember this is also a brushless vehicle and alittle bigger then the normal mini cars, so this will be quite a bit more then the other mini's, For an example of High MRSP, the RTR Rustler VXL has an MRSP of $490.00, but you can pick one off Amain at $264.99. I don't think the difference will be as much for these vehicles, but you get the idea.
