these trucks are great and real fast. they hold their own in most races against bigger trucks with bigger engines. heck they even beat me with my prototype razorback from unlimited engineering and I was running a .21 verses the traxxas .15

i've got a T-maxx and really enjoy it. I drove one of these new revo's and it's awesome. It has much more control due to the shock set up and steering.

I think they've done well with this design.

I went down and checked one out. Traxxas set the new standard again with this truck, very well thought out and engineered. None of the others come close in my opinion, so they'll be playing catchup again for some time. The Revo's about a hundred bucks more but it's obvious where that extra money went into this thing.

Biggest thing besides the lower center of gravity I found was that there is zero bump steer throughout the full suspension articulation, front and rear, no toe in or out, which is a big handling problem on the Maxx.

I'm definitley going to pick up a Revo in the next few weeks. I'll keep my Maxx too though.
