Not again........


The same response you've overwhelmingly received everywhere else you've posted this -
NOT NO, BUT HELL NO(there's enough micro crap out there already, most of it not worth what it costs, we don't need any more)

People should stop thinking 'cash x size' and start thinking 'cash x fun'!

It's kind of hard to think that way, all things being equal, when you can hold a typical micro in one hand and $300 in the other - it's not hard to choose to make a wiser choice with one's money.

They really wouldn't cost 300. They would cost about 110 brushed 27mhz and 200 brushless and 2.4ghz. Think of it. A small brushless 200 bucks powerhouse can be way more fun then a stock brushed 450 bucks E-Revo!

Why would they want to reinvent the wheel to compete in a very small niche market (and price range) that losi already dominates?
They already make a mini-revo, close to that pricepoint, why would they want to compete with their own sales just to make a micro-revo? Doesn't make sense.

Losi doesn't even have a true 4wd off road (the Rally and SCT stop working when they even touch dirt, I found out myself) and they don't have a brushless RTR or even a 2.4ghz RTR (except for crawlers). I think a lot of people would buy a Micro E-Revo over a Micro-T!

I would have to disagree with you.. The new HPI Mini is 1/16 brushed and comes RTR with a 2.4 radio and it is only $100.

LOL!

I love my Traxxas Minis but would have to say no I don't want to see any Traxxad micros. They should leave that market to the brands already out there. Traxxas has a great 1/16 and 1/10 line and should stick with that imo.

I've looked at so many micros but everytime walk away. Yeah they only cost around $100 (ie Losi). But to make them brushless and fast you have to spend another $150-200. Then you are looking at a $300 r/c that is still very limited on where it can be driven. No thanks!

Minis are small enough for me. They can handle the street, dirt, beach and more plus I can upgrade alot easier as all the electronics are not all integrated which it is in alot of micros. So don't do it Traxxas, just say no to micros.

Nothing else that Losi has made had any problems with dirt?
So what makes you think that just because it's made by traxxass that something in the pricerange you've noted would be any different?

Put a 1/10 stadium truck next to an E-Revo. See the difference?

The whole F-in chassis is different! Dual A-Arms per corner, inboard shocks, 4WD, Mid Motor... Everything is different!

I guess I don't really understand your point.

Micro, 1/16, 1/18, Mini, 1/10, 1/8, 1,5 they are all different execpt sometimes they scale down the parts to make them look the same.

Also you need to refrain from using the "F" word on the forms.

And somehow you're dreaming that they'll be able to pack all that in a micro?

Really?

Maybe not in a 1/36, but according to my calculations it should fit in a 1/24 or maybe a 1/22. That's small enough and I call that micro. I call 1/18 and 1/16 mini.

Well if you call 1/16 and 1/18 mini then you have your sizes all wrong...

Yeah, 1/18 is on the edge of mini for me. It's more like a hybrid mini-micro.

Because every so often you post one of these types of threads on various forums, AND it appears you're wishing on a star, dreaming the impossible dream.

If traxxass was that interested in the sub-mini or micro market, they would have entered it a long time ago....... instead of choosing that their smalled RC was going to be 1/16th scale.
