Well, the old t-maxx had the trx pro .15 and the new has the trx 2.5 which is a .15 right?

the .15 is cubic inches or something like that and 2.5 is in cubic centimeters

They mean it's the 2nd generation t-maxx which is the 2.5. Also, what is 430 pounds converted to us dollars. I think that might be a rip off. you can buy the 2.5 t-maxx in the states for $400.

Ya but look down at the stats it says engine: trxpro .15

Go to http://www.traxxas.com/products/trx_nitro.htm and look down at the bottom the trxpro .15 is their older less powerfull engine which only lets the maxx do like 30 instead of 40mph

Your right, it is the TRX. I don't know why they would say it is a "version 2.0". At any rate, it sounds like a ripoff to me. If your going to order one, go here http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXPW87**&P=0

That is the second bread of tmaxx's, the only differance from that truck and the first maxx's built, was the prographix body, and the EZstart had steel gears in it instead of plastic. And the only differance between that truck and the 2.5(.15 engine) is the engine of course and exhuast system, the drive shafts were made larger, the suspention was widened and able to be tuned, and the shock towers were redesigned.
