i think he means that its a whole new truck... "revo to the maxx" as in "revolution to the extreme"

i think its a different truck altogether... ok... even if some of the ideas are recycled, like the dual servo steering as gator8 tried to explain, this is the first truck that put it all together... also... i really dont any simmilarity between the REVO and the MAXX...

Its an amazing new design. Im still staring at it wondering how none of the magazines got any spy shots of this thing. Everything about that truck is new. I absolutely love it.

Traxxas kept this thing behind locked doors and inside of gates when running. THE STADIUM MAXX TRICKED US ALL! STUPID TRICK

anyone know if it's 1/8th or 1/10th scale? Great looking truck, very innovative. I'm not too sure if I like the idea of a computer in an R/C car besides the radio, kinda seems like something else to water proof and protect from being knocked around.

Definatley not another maxx. Just cause it's from traxxas doesn't mean it's a maxx.

Yep, this one is tottaly different. We will just have to wait and see it on the track to determine if its any good at what they claim or not.

Maybe we should wait until someone actually drives one, or at least sees one in person before coming to any conclusions about it.

That would be a new approach.

yeah... i agree with you if you're talking about performance... but some people just dont thiink of it as a 'wow' kind of truck in terms of what they see on the website... i put this up so they can tell everyone why they think it is what it is...

from what i saw on the website, it looks like a whole new truck... the design is new and they are using some new technology in it... they also incorporate older ideas and technology in this truck, such as the 2.5 engine, but like the engine, these ideas have been changed and modified a little bit...

some people dont see it this way and think that its just another t-maxx... im curious as to what they see that makes it so? so far the people who have said that are accusing the REVO of having the same problems that the T-Maxx had, and because of it are going on a smear campaign against traxxas products...
