I think you mean rich, rich traxxas. Those diff issues are limited to a batch of vehicles, and Traxxas is fixing the issue. It really doesnt matter the Revo will continue to sell like illegal drugs. I havent had one part break in three gallons. And even if I did I still would buy it all over again. The Revo is simply one of the best trucks to ever hit the shelves. You obviously dont own a Revo because it not a good MT, its a Great MT. Im sure in the post that follow you will hear more of the same!!!!!!!

I used to own the other great monster, the LST. Well it aint all that. The thing falls apart and is way unreliable for racing. I have switched to the Revo and entered 2 races this past weekend on sat, and sun. Well needlless to say I won both races. The other trucks were all MGT, LST, Savage and tmaxx. As well as them being bigger trucks some were running Wasp 28 and RB 28 in them too. The revo held its own with the 2.5r. I love this truck and no issues with the diffs either. I bought mine used and its been through about 3 gallons and still no probs. A+++++ over here. Sold my LST the moment I got the Revo and I will never look back.

Over for the Revo? Not even close. Of all the Revos i raced with this weekend, not one had any diff issues, or anything bad to say about the truck. Im working on my 3rd gallon, and been into my diffs a few times for fluid changes. No problems at all. I have read maybe 2 threads about diff problems with revos. Very few people have these problems.

I havent been replying to this topic because theres no need for me to reply and bring it back up to the top, but since its already at the top right now i will just say this.

Guys the only reason for somone to post somthing like this is to get everyone all worked up so they keep repling to it and it stays at the top of the page. People that make posts "bashing" a certian truck and its owners do so in hopes that people will reply negatively to the post and keep it going.
Ignore it and it will drop off the page and out of sight.

Both of my Diffs went out on my REVO, but Traxxas sent me a shipping label and will fix the problem.. Would buy this truck again in a heartbeat.. An awsome truck!

You have obviously not read the moderator's post on what this sight is here for. It is not to knock people or to bash anybody, but it is here to help other people in this hobby out. remember two wrongs do not make a right. Please be try and be respectful to others on this board.


Thanks,

RRR you did not deliver any "message" that is helpful and i have to tell you i've been around the block enough to know a few things about peoples motives behind their actions so dont think your fooling anyone.

Traxxas posted the message on their board for everyone to see and i believe it was already discussed on this board as well as a few other also, so you didnt "enlighten" anyone as to a concevable problem with the Revo.

You titeled your post "Over for the Revo", if you really were tryin to help anyone you would have done it in a manner that would not be blatintly offense to Traxxas owners. Plus you self admitted that you posted it to get people worked up already

Point is if you want to be helpful to people then do so, if you want to try to start a argument or "dis" anyones preference in brands then go somwhere else. I for one and tired of listening to imature posts that do nothing but incite a argument...i'm here to Learn/help what i can/share, try doing the same!

No one needs to go around posting that they have a Revo and they love it.

Default RE: Over for the Revo???

I got a revo a few weeks back so I have someting to run whike I am fixing my Gensis (never ending issue there) and out of the box this is the best of many trucks I have now or have had. this truck is great. even if ther are issues, as long as the company stands behind it who cares. my genesis may still suck now, but I get calls from support and parts for free until I am happy, how can you go wrong with that? if there are issues with this, I know traxxas will be all over it to keep me happy.
