Default RE: LST or Revo?

It depends if you want a 1/10 or 1/8 scale. I believe the Losi is 1/8 scale. I think it's a little too early to tell. You may want to wait until other users get the truck and hear what they say. If I had to choose one right now I would probably go with the Revo because it's different and I already have a 1/8 truck.

When is the Losi coming out?

Good luck!

I was set on the Losi... Then the Revo info was released, I was not to impressed. I have though about it and kicked it around and it really grew on me. I preordered the Revo yesterday. It just has so much going for it and i love the weight. The long travel suspension pieces it comes with have 120mm of travel. That is like 4.7 inches. Watching the travel and articulation on the revo has blown me away.

I'm going with the Revo just because of that, I already have the synthesized radio. I can't afford the extra $$$..... Although if I bought the LST I could jus sell the radio system immediately... damn for thinking!

Will a big block fit in the revo without an extended chassis?

Revo gets my vote. I bet this thing will be the next giant in Nitro. Mine is already pre ordered. I saw the videos on the traxxas site. It was jumping curbs at high speed , popping wheelings and running at a high rate of speed. I have had just about every monster truck. And none of them could hit curbs and parking stumps like that. The Losi is nothing different than whats already out there. My nod goes to the REVO!!!!!!!!!!!

Losi LST! I have a Tmaxx and I don't need another TQ3 and TRX 2.5.
If the Revo had a .21 and a better radio, then I'd go for it, but it doesn't. It's impressive, but I want a truck that can handle a big block, and I also want a new radio. The Revo has neither.

they both look awesome, if they were the same price or very lil price different thenn i would go with LST just because of .26 under the hood, and those big shocks, not sayin that revo is not good or anything, just my opinion, don't we all have one?

Very tough choice. Revo's put me in limbo as well until I can figure out just what it's good for. It's more of a lean machine than a big brute of a truck, Revo looks well-made and I think the LST has proved great build-quality so i guess it's down to what image and purposes you want.

LST is more of the monster truck look, Revo is the futuristic choice.

"I think the LST has proved great build-quality" I'm amazed at these kind of statements when the truck isn't even out yet. They both look like nice trucks but don't be disappointed if half the summer goes by before you get one. My advice is buy something thats available now. As far as pre-ordering goes, your kidding right?

Default RE: LST or Revo?

As far as quality goes, you can look at the track record. Losi doesn't bring something on the market unless it can compete, and compete WELL. Traxxas has always been a company that brings entry level RCs to the market. When you see a competition race you won't see the name Traxxas anywhere. I'm not saying the LST is going to be better, I am simply saying that history has shone that most of Losi's RCs don't need a strong aftermarket to compete, that comes stock. I own a TMaxx, plus MANY other RCs. I have had more fun with my TMaxx than any other, but I also have a COMPLETE Supermaxx with a Team Orion Wasp .26. Check it out here http://polaris.umuc.edu/~rlong/page4.html
That page is kind of corny because it was a class project. I had to write something. Anyway next time around I don't want to have to spend this much money. I mean I didn't even start with a Traxxas product, you can say I have an Unlimited Engineering TMaxx based on a Traxxas design.
