The New E-Revo from Traxxas is built from the start to be electric. Integrated battery compartments position the weight of the batteries as low and as close to the centerline of the chassis as possible. A smooth center skid plate adds strength. The low center of gravity, balanced weight distribution, and incredible torsional rigidity yields the best handling Revo platform ever. The E-Revo is powered by a 16.8 volt EVX-2 power system with twin Titan 550 motors, and features include hard-anodized Teflon coated shocks with TiN shafts, dual digital waterproof steering servos and TQ radio system.

Feature list:

• New chassis design with integrated dual battery compartments
• Quick release battery doors
• Battery cooling vents
• Scalable battery compartments to fit anything from sport packs to 6S LiPo power
• Smooth center skid plate
• Weather-sealed electronics
• EVX-2 16.8-volt FWD/REV ESC with patent pending Training Mode
• Dual Titanฎ 550 motors
• Dual digital waterproof steering servos with 125 oz-in of torque & 0.16-sec transit time
• Hard-anodized Teflonฎ-coated shock bodies with TiN coated shock shafts
• 4-Channel micro receiver
• Brushless-Ready 2-speed transmission with metal center idler gear
• Sealed pivot ball suspension
• Sealed limited slip differentials
• Dual-servo steering system
• Hex hardware throughout
• 3.8” black-chrome Gemini wheels
• 3.8” Talon tires
• Sleek new pre-painted body design
• Adjustable rear wing
• Compatible with many Revo Platinum upgrades
• Traxxas innovation built in!
• Ready-To-Raceฎ

Tekno/Impakt has it listed for $500 and that is around the price they think it will be.

Tower has the E-revo here:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXUYD6**&P=7

$449.99 right now.

Now, I am not sure if you can use the current coupons, but if you can, you can knock off another $30 from the order.

So that would be $419.99 + shipping.

You can take off $40 if you spend $250 or more. That is Towers E-Mail coupon. They add more if you subscribe to them and/or have something in their wishlist.

So, basically...the E-Revo will be priced $409.99 only. Woot!

I am wondering how much is the next months' saving is.

Dont know, Losi drilled their quality in to the ground, the number of not fitting new parts and poorly finished stuff i've had from them lately is disturbing.

Back on topic.

are there any bodies out from other trucks that will fit well? Revo 3.3 bodies are way shorter.

Impakt lowered the price from $500.00 to $459.99, the same as Tower, looks to be the end price...
http://www.impaktrc.com/product_info...oducts_id=2485

Any thoughts on how this will perform, once a good brushless system is installed, relative to a well converted brushless Revo 3.3, like the one w/ Vantage carbon chassis and Novak HV 6.5 in R/C Car Action last month?
