Default TMAXX VS. Revo POLL!!

THE QUESTION!
if you had a choice to choose a revo or a T-maxx, any style you wanted ( model # ) and you had money to buy what ever upgrades you wanted what would you choose?!

* NOTE CANNOT POST 'both'






mise well tell what you voted for what you voted for



** i already own a truck, i just want to see what you guys vote for! **
this is not a what should i buy poll!



Thanks all:
mike Pevine

E-Revo brushless, lipo..
Just smashes all the nitro maxxes and revos.

Revo is a far better machine than a T-Craps.

I was wondering the same thing.lol. The t-maxx I owned was an older model but for all I know the new ones may be stronger.

Besides the suspension what is the difference between the two? I bought a revo but had a friend recommend the T-Maxx because of the availability of aftermarket parts.

I voted revo and I don't even have one! I have an Emaxx and it's awesome but as I have read about tmaxx's and revo's, I just think the revo is better.

Revos are 100% different than t-maxxes, the revo has more aftermarket than the t-maxx. Don't listen to your friend.

i voted tmaxx not because i think they are better,but just on looks alone......i think the tmaxx is a more accurate representation of a monster truck.......and if money was no object id build a UE SUPERMAXX ,ford f 650 body,40series proline mashers,beadlock rims,and at least a picco red dot for an engine............GO TMAXX GO

the tmaxx has a lot more aftermarket parts then the revo dude.........tmaxx has been around for years..........UE is the number one name in the aftermarket and i dont even think they make parts for the revo........CRUMBSHARK ur friend was rite!!!

as for 100% different,wrong again......the latest tmaxx 4908 and 4907 both come with revo spec drivelines.......axles,center shafts,tranny gears,diff gears and cups are all stock on the new maxx

yes a better machine in some ways piddlefoot........revo is more track worthy stock and easier to do big block mods down the road.......tmaxx is lighter and looks nicer (IMO).......is the revo any tougher? (debatable).......tmaxx is easier to work on then the revo........more aftermarket parts for the tmaxx.........revo handles better.......tmaxx wheelies better.......revo isnt as top heavy so more stable...........revo is almost $200 more expensive, is it really worth it? (debatable) ..........those are just to list a few things off the top of my head, it really comes down to personal preference and what your gonna use the truck for

I don't understand why people think the t-maxxes look better than the revos, I guess it's kinda like the ak-47 vs m4a1 , I think the ak-47 looks better but it's not as accurate as the m4.Back on topic imo I think the revos looks WAY better than the t-maxxes. I also think the revo is a better racer and basher. I'm not biased as I have owned both, I got rid of the t-maxx and got the revo.

i think the reason most people like the the looks of the tmaxx better is because it looks like a real truck............when i went to buy my first rc i had $1000 i had done noresearch,all i knew is that i wanted a traxxas because of theavailability of parts at the LHS........the owner showed me the revo first then the maxx,once i seen the maxx there was no question as to which one would be my first truck........the one and only reason i regret that decision is the fact that the maxx is limited to only a couple different engine combos and no true big blocks without finding and buying an extended chassis

i voted maxx and i dont own either!
i have driven a maxx (the good ol' pro .15). i like the design better than the revo, i hate the rocker suspension.
monster trucks are not suposed to handle well, they are ment to wheelie, jump, crash and ask for more.
i have never ran a revo nor do i plan to.

i dont hear anyone saying why they vote revo........id really like to hear some reasons beside the bull **** ones that have already been brought up........the poll out come does not surprise me most of you guys just go with whats new and which you THINK is cooler and the biggest reason is jumping on the band wagon with no logical explanation as to why......lets have a an educated debate,educated being the key word here

who voted T-maxx and why?
I was the first one who voted for the Tmaxx last night... I voted for it because its what I have haha.. And when I was looking at buying a truck I looked at the Revo and The Tmaxx I chose the Tmaxx because for one it was cheaper and two I liked the way it was laid out better than how the Revo was..

The reason I didnt post anything last night is because I knew everyone would just say Revo was better and get mad about me saying the Tmaxx lol
