Good BUY? - E-Revo Brushless RTR with Castle Mamba & 2.4 Radio by Traxxas (TRA5608)

Hi guys,

Finally living at area where I have tons of open space grass and gravel in-front of me.. Grass varying between 0.5 - 1 inches. I'm looking at buying first RC car... ERevo 1/10 scale (Thought 1/16 Revo would be too small do deal w grass) and wanted to know if the Brushless RTR was a go od buy? Looks like got good reviews on horizon's website. They're selling for $720. Does anyone know if there are better prices available on this model?

Any extras I should order (3S Lipos? What mAh from whom - HK?)

Last Q, what the difference between this one and EVX2 - Titan motors? Is it worth $200 bump in price?

Appreciate the help.

The EVX2 is brushed, and not nearly as powerful. IMO, it's worth the extra money for the brushless one.

That said, there are other options out there that aren't $700 that will work well for you too.

Do you only plan to run it on short grass and gravel?

Something like this is still great, but about $300 less:

Not too familiar with Traxxas although heard is a really good brand, a little over prized maybe.
We specialize on Redcat, maybe you can see if this might be an option for you, a little bit more affordable and really reliable.
You can check them out at or at our website at

Hope it helps.
