Default e revo

I am wondering how good of a truck the e revo is. I can get one brand new for a great price but want to purchase one more truck and want high quality. Any suggestions welcome.

Its a great truck. Its really a 1/8th scale not a 1/10th. It handles so well it will hang with the truggies on the track but can bash with the best. Its a good tuck for the money

From what I hear the E-Revo is nearly impossible to break in stock form. Not that I would know personally, and you can always break something if you try hard enough.

The E-Revo is an excellent choice as long as you have the proper batteries and chargers.

It is pretty tough. But I did manage to break a rear a-arm on a jump.

And the stock setup doesn't really have enough power to do much once you get in the air.

The nitro revo is the roar champ two years in a row. So you can only imagine how good it is now!
