OMG its horrible.

no really, the revo is quite good infact. though be aware there is now a 3.3 revo. but money is probably tight for you, so that might be too much.

From what I hear,Traxxas is discontinuing the 2.5r model.I would spend the extra $ and get the 3.3.

NO THEY CAN'T DISCONTINUE IT!!! I JUST BOUGHT ONE!!! Do you think they will still carry parts for it. Or willl pretty much everything for the 3.3 fit the 2.5R?

Im pretty sure most everything will fit both.I think its mostly the 2.5r motor,So you should be just fine unless you want another 2.5r motor.

I highly doubt they'll stop making the 2.5 motor either.

they have done the research on it, they have the molds and the models. it isnt costing them anything to produce and support both.

look at the tmaxx, that things still going strong in both engine sizes as well. the smaller engine offers a lower price alternative, and then hopefully they can sell you a 3.3 later on.
