Traxxas E-Revo

The E-Revo breaks the mold with bigger tires, a more powerful brushless system, and a bulletproof drivetrain. Due out later this month, the newest Revo in the family is a real contender. Let's take a quick look!

Traxxas E-Revo

A 70+MPH Rocket

The Revo is a legacy truck with its intro in the early 2000's. Since then , it's seen a number of improvements, but nothing like the latest model with a blisteringly-fast top speed and handling performance to boot. The new E-Revo sports a VXL-6S power system with a Maxx-Spec driveline to keep broken drivetrain parts to a minimum. This brushless-powered low-profile monster truck is designed around a pair of 2s 7600mAh or 3s 5000mAh LiPo packs that can propel it to speeds upwards of 70 MPH.

Power. Strength. Speed. | The New E-Revo. (1 min 48 sec)

The cantilever front and rear suspension places the fluid-filled dampers close to the chassis for better handling while lowering the center of gravity. A new tire and wheel combo dubbed the Talon EXT is bigger and meatier than the original Talon tires and wheels used on previous Revo editions. The E-Revo features a composite plastic bathtub chassis and has a wheelbase just shy of 15", with an overall length right at 23". The E-Revo will retail for $589.99 and is due in stores in late February 2018.

It's definitely a good looking truck. Hopefully their new tires offer a better rubber compound in addition to the taller height and more aggressive tread.

589$ is not a bad price for that.

I was honestly surprised too. I was thinking 600 at the least. 589 will be very competitive with Arrma vehicles. Will be interesting to see the new Traxxas against a Kraton or talion etc!!

Competition is the best, this goes to show you that arrma (and other brands) hurt traxxas which caused traxxas to think outside the box and bring new vehicles and update older ones. As well as bring their prices down, the older revo was 750$ which was no better than the Arrma at a much lower price.

Actually, they've sued a few companies over the years for BS, so it's not so much "outside the box" as "business as usual" for them, unfortunately. But you're right that the reasoning for doing it was because other companies were beating them at their own game.
