The nitro sport is a piece of junk, but that doesn't mean all Traxxas cars are garbage. I'll pay you $25 to take that nitro sport out of the trash and send it to me.

It's pretty naive to base your opinion of a company on an experience with one of the company's most dated and cheapest platforms.

What do you like least about Traxxas, how easy stuff breaks on them, or the inabability for their nitro engines to actually run, and preform.

Every company makes at least one really pathetic vehicle, and that's one of them.

Always owned a Traxxas from back when they first came out with a onroad truck electric lime 27 turn lol to my new slash vxl 4x4. Always the best only other Rc I has was a hpi savage 4.6.

I can agree with that. So since i've allready discoverd a crappy product form a sopposedly good company, then what are some other RCs that really suck from big companies like losi, hpi and team associated, cause I really don't want to buy another really crappy product.

The pro15 is one of the most indestructible engines ever made... maybe you should try breaking the thing in properly.

Just ask for opinions before buying something. You get what you pay for too. The cheapest stuff from almost every company is sub par.

ill take the other side of that bet.
at the urging of a friend who kept claiming that the slash wasnew and better and how traxxas had really stepped up the game on this one andblah blah blah i drove one. after 10 minutes i wanted to stomp a mud hole in its roof and set it on fire. wordscan not describe my hatred for that truck. i have had a dislike for short course trucks sense

ill tell you what i got a traxxas t-maxx 2.5 as my first hobby quality rc. it made me mad a plenty and wished i hadnt got it a couple times but it was tough as all and that little 2.5 went 8+ gallons before it slung the rod and that was with me that never had it tuned right allways to lean or rich then i rebuilt it and went another 5+ gallons!! now i have got me another maxx truck t-maxx 2.5r from stormerhobbies.com and am happy i got another traxxas.
I would recommend a t-maxx to any one wantin a glow powered monster truck!! IMO its a pretty great little truck it would even be better if traxxas would offer a big block conversion for it!

i would pay $30 for you to ship it to me! a nitro sport was my 1st rc. it was a pain, stuff broke often and the motor was a @$#% to keep a tune....but it still holds a special place in my heart.

to get a good nitro truck, you have to pony up some big $$$.

traxxas is like microsoft and intel. they make such junk it keeps LOTS of tech guys working. just remember a new jato is $360. not $600. sometimes you get what you pay for. dont get me wrong i have a t-maxx, 16 mo old, and a jato 12 mo old, and a jato 6 days old my sons. but if i was to go racing, or jump 6 ft jumps i would NOT have a traxxas. also traxxas thinks they can tell you to not do drugs, alcohol, tobacco, just check there forum rules. note i said they are TELLING you. thank you i just turned 62 and i already have a momy

You act like you are 6.2 years old...

We get it you hate traxxas forums... Pretty sick of seeing that "momy" BS posted everytime someone mentions traxxas (BTW its "mommy" )

After 62 years you should at least have learned to spell, or use spell check...

Mabey its not the product but the user that is the problem? ive hadE maxx /T maxx /S maxx / Revo and have never had any major problems with any of them.
People are always quick to blame the product for the problem but are never willing to concider that mabey they are the one a faut. Improper carbneedle setting /slipper settings for the surface there running on etc etc.

If you are gonna say the vehicle sucks show some manfacturing defects or somthing that proves its the RC at fault and not YOUR lack of skills.
