    what is this I hear, I was expecting a report on the REVO from you Monster what gives man ,na man just kidding better to wait a little bit and let traxxas work out all the bugs before getting one , ive been checking out other sites and some people arnt that happy with the motor in other words tuning issues ,telling ya the problem is that carb. wont function correctly if dirty or worn out.

    ya i was disputing getting it because of the motor but then you told me its the carb so couldn't people just go on ebay and get a different carb cheap or would others not fit? i want to see how the aftermarket goes with it.i bet it will be big like the t-maxx but i dont know how fast

    Mind you the carb. in my opinion is the weak link, I generally run about 3 gal. threw a 2.5 then tear it down put a new P/S in it, after about 1/2 gal. I'll rebuild the carb. sooner if needed and I can honestly say that my Maxxes run at peak performance on a constant level. Now as far as the Revo goes the only real difference in the motor is the mild head forwhat ever reason that is . RED

    traxxas is going the wrong direction i guess, HPI is i guess still the most experienced of rc builders, altho i have tamiya...its just becoz the tc was good only 2 heavy, and now the tnx has better engine and 1 kilo lighter [8D]...but i think that traxxas will get a good monstertruck after the revo, coz i like the suspension degign of the revo u cant brake ur shocks as easyly.

    well the thing is you i have seen people braking the grey piece that connects the rods to the shocks. they need to make some aluminum ones and if the shocks pop out of place i think you might mess a few other things up. traxxas is really just an rtr company and all the serious racers want kits and traxxas really isnt producing it.hpi offers both for prety much every vehicle. traxxas arent really race vehicles except for the maxxes. allt he rest are pretty much just back yard bashers.

    thats why i didnt buy a savage, the way the tnx is build seems fine. i reckon it looks better, and i just like the way it drives. the tnx is like a cheetah and the savage is more like a very fast bull [:p]

    lol.my bro wanted the savage but now he wants a maxx but im thinking he should start out with something a bit easier like a stampede or some electric. he could barely drive my buggy with a crappy motor in it
