couldn't they come up with a name that doesn't have evo in it, HPI is already using jsut evo, which is stupid because an evo is a real car not an RC car.

looks nice but I hate the name.

Yawn!! Another small block? What is up with that? I thought Traxxas would finally step up and go to a .21 or bigger to fill the gap in their fleet.Not really sure who this is aimed at.I don't see hardcore racer's interested in this at all and the shock system looks way to Mad Force to me.Oh well too bad...

You are correct about the rain issue JR. I have and do race when possible "the big events" and have seen this happen more the once.

Nice looking REVO. Will be waiting for their arrival.

REVO? What's it stand for?

With ya Fried. Feeling better I hope.

Fried, We knew there would be the naysayers that thought we should put in a big block. But as any racer will tell you it's all about the power to weight ratio. I'm no Slayden but I can wheel a stock (meaning just optional parts) around the track and hang if not beat truggies all day long.

Until you see this thing run it is impossible to comprehend how unbelievable it really is. We just didnt' try to tweak the monster truck segment of the hobby we rewrote the book again.

Interesting looking for sure! Where does this truck fit in the Traxxas fleet? Is this more of a racer then the maxx or??

Was thinking about getting into some monster truck racing and this is an interesting development.

Jeff it is just another vehicle that we now offer. Rest assured the T-Maxx is not going away.

The Revo is awesome and will be at home on the track or out in the backyard or ripping it up and down the street.

Again JR, it's a DRIVER thing.

Thumbs up Race winner

Just look at this chassis layout...wow...this machine is going to be a race winner





Also if you notice the position of the flywheel it's now going to be a breeze to drop in and use a high end non pullstart rear exhaust engine....an RB V12 5 port turbo Rody tuned comes to mind

Eventhough I have no need for it to be RTR I've already emailed my LHS.....GET ME ON THE ORDER LIST

PS: Traxxas staff, since you have introduced what appears to be a very nice racing MT can you please offer a kit version.
