Default Traxxas Revo what year they Relese it ?

I remember that i bought the Old Revo 2.5 at release
also the 3.3

This is so long time ago.
What year traxxas released the 2.5? Feels like 20years ago
and also the 3.3 when did TRX Release this ?

Fun to know.

Sick that they still sell these 3,3 after like 15 years atleast ? 😂
TRX is fun Company LOL

I did also buy the first T MAXX. 2.5
i have it still. This is more than 20years old . In mint condition exxept motor.
Never got the engine run well, so i did only drive it 4-5 times. It is like brand new. The motor had issues from the Box.
I did have alot RC Cars that time already so i did never care about it

My memory served me, as it was announced in April of 2004. A reverse search of this forum places the Revo's release announcement here:

New Traxxas Monster Truck!!!

Nice, thank you

This is fun to know.

I did also buy the CEN 7.7cc Monstertruck 1/8 at release.
I still have this also in Mint condition exxept Motor,, driven only 4-5 tanks. Sadly when i needed change the glowplug the threads gone bad in the motor top.
This motor must had very weak threaths from factory, because i have many Kyosho Infernos and other rigs before this Cen 7.7, and have change many glow plugs without issues before and after in other rigs.

I would like to know what year CEN 7.7 was released also.
I also have the Thunderking MK4 with 14-16cc Nitro motor. This bastard also had motor Problems out from box. LOL
This is Crazy old, i believe 1997 ?
One guy that did race with Infernos back to days did try get this motor run also and failed. So it was actually failures from box, not drivers fault

There is something special with these rigs, sad i never had any luck drive them like they was made to driven.
Maybe someday i will do universal Brushless motor mount convert to them all.
Buy cheap china 42 size 6s combos, run them on just 3-4s for fun, not for speed and risk bad crashes, there is no parts either anymore i believe to these.

I will take Photos some day and show them all in the old cars session here, they are beautifull Classics
The CEN 7.7 and MK4 are true huge Monster Trucks. Huge wheels also. Coolest awaible back to days
