Default REVO thread (no arguing edition)

Discuss the REVO here...

I think it is a sweet truck. I think one of its best features, the TRUE progressive suspension, has been overlooked by many, (or at least i havent seen it mentioned here). The suspension is so crazy, especially in that vid where he hits large curbs and just goes right over them at a pretty good clip...

Heh, I read the old thread. Kind of made me join up. It's the kind of thread that makes you smile after two years moderating internet forums because it shows that people at least care . Kinda reminds me of that old joke, how many posters does it take in a forum? Like, 500 newbies to profess their love for Traxxas, 50 anti-RTR purists to slew them down, 10 to say it's not even out yet stop arguing, 20 'experts' to comment in detail on the truck's solidity despite never having seen it yet, 30 saying they've had time to think now and have changed their minds either way, 100 to argue about other things the thread has brought up, 50 to join in when it ends up in name-calling, and one modertor to send the sorry mess to hell

Ah well, all good stuff. Like I say, at least this place gets a lot of posts. My two cents are that this truck looks promising in many ways, but I will wait until it has proven it's ability before buying it. I'm looking at getting a truck this summer (bashing purposes) and at the moment the Savage 25 is still probably in the overall lead, though it is far from settled and obviously given the money involved I want to get it right first time!

It sure looks like being an exciting summer for trucks. I just hope I can get a look at a Revo here in the UK before too long!

It's impressive. It's different than anything currently available, which is impressive alone. I'm glad Traxxas put some R&D into something entirely new, and give them props for keeping such a good secret.

On the other hand, I won't be buying it. I already have a Tmaxx with quite a chunk of change invested into it, and I don't need a new truck that will still have the TQ3 and TRX 2.5. My next truck will still be the Losi LST, as it's still more impressive then the Revo.

I just got a new Maxx.... grrrrr. oh well... Yeah i really like the new slipper clutch as well, the old style i really do not enjoy working with, and the new brakes should help a lot. The electric tranny was a good idea as well, and the twin steering servos, and the Rx pack! now they need a rechargable Tx...

We will all have a better feel for this truck after the RCX show is over. Traxxas should have some out on the track, showing its stuff. If it can compete with the Savage in bash-a-thons, then that will be the place to prove it. I'm sure there will be alot of movies after next weekend. I'll see if Ican take a movie fo it taking big jumps and surviving.

I'm not a big fan of this machine but those vids are sick. I've owned a few MTs in my day and not one of 'em could take a curb like that. I can't wait until someone I know gets one so I can wring it out for a few tanks.

where are the vids?

This truck was just raced last weekend out at a large race in victoria.

From what the general feel for the truck was that stever was smoking with it, that is handled better then most 1/8 scale buggies.

I got tired of the other thread so I gave up on it. I'd like to see it without the extra electronics & beefier arms. I'm still having too much fun with my Savage to worry about buying another truck. The suspension looks smooth. I tried to imagine my Savage hitting that same curb at high speed & the outcome wasn't anywhere near what the Revo did. I'm anxious to see what everyone says about them once they've had them for a while.

i bet there will be a shortage of them like when they introduced the original T-maxx. i have half the money saved so i will have one before summer is over, i will be able to get one from my lhs because there arent that many R/C enthusiests around my area to buy them all.
