Default What do you guys think about the 1:8 E Revo?

I've recently purchased a 1:16 E Revo and man, that thing is so good I feel like changing my username. Now though, I feel like purchasing the larger sized brushless E Revo, what do you guys think about it, is it any good?

Spend the extra money upfront and get the brushless version. IMO its the best handling monster truck out there, if you loved the mini e revo you'll love the big one as well. If you cannot afford it buy thebrushed motored version first, then upgrade to brushless later.

I was talking about the brushless version already, I'll add that in, thanks.

i had one.. to me the brushless system was too powerful for the kit.. it was just not strong enough and i would break diffs and axles.. in the long run its cheaper to get a brushless truggy..

a truggy is kinda low slung like the revo and makes for a better racer and basher

nothing flys like a truggy and they are hard to brake and the driveline can hold up to the nutty power of 1/8th brushless

I loved my e revo, I never broke anything on it. But I was running a Tekin 1700 motor in it.

Great truck in my opinion

No they're not good, they are F#*%! awesome.

If you like the mini you'll love its big brother. They are not as race worthy as a truggy but are heaps more versatile. I've been racing and bashing mine pretty hard for over 7 months and have to admit it has a few areas that weren't as durable as i'd like but with a few simple mods i've now got it set up to take a hell of a flogging.

We run against truggys at our track and even with no CD's we are still beating alot of truggy's.

I like the Revo. It needs some work though, I would get some CVD's for it, and a few other parts. CVD's aint cheap for it, I like the Kershaw ext chassis for them too. It makes it longer and wider or just longer. Its alot of cash to drop but if you plan on racing at all I would just bite the bullet and get a Caster F8T-FK and you will need no hop ups.
