Traxxas E-Revo Brushless RTR Monster Truck w/TQi 2.4GHz, Castle Mamba, LiPos & C
This is my second car to purchase. I also have a Slash 4x4. I'm just a normal dad with a 6 year old who got the Slash in the house from "Santa". Got so tired of the Radio Shack type remote control cars. The 4x4 was so addicting to play with at the park with my son I had to get a "daddy" car. The Revo fit that bill. Santa also brought, luckily, a 7-cell NiMH for my son and daddy an 11.1v LiPo battery. Holy Moly is there a big difference. Now for the revo. I don't bash or jump this car. I'm 49 years old and don't see any reason what-so-ever to do things that, while in the short term may "look" cool, do nothing but tear the $%@& out of your car and cost you money to fix it. Bear in mind I did hit a parked truck tire with it at 40 mph and completely ripped the right front wheel off. That cost me $60 and 2 1/2 hours to fix. What I like the most is taking it to the park and running it in the wide open field by the play ground and doing high speed runs and wheelies and watch people just freak out at how fast it goes for being so big. Two 11.1 volt LiPos make this thing absolutely fly across the field. Every single kid stops playing and every parent stops and watches it fly around. But let me be clear. This is not a kids toy. Unless your child has deep pockets and knows how to fix it when it does break. Also, if your child hits someone with this thing at a park going 50 mph you will probably have some legal issues to deal with in addition to fixing your car. Also, for the first time buyers. Please do not buy a RC car that your local RC shop does not have ample spare parts for. Haven't been at his long and the MOST aggrevating thing is to break something that you have to order and wait a week to get in. You WILL break things. One more suggestion. Tighten ALL screws after running each day. If it's still tight...good! If it's even just a little lose - back the screw out, put some BLUE locktite on the threads and screw it back in. Trust me here. Tha will save you countless frustration in the future. If you can afford it...go Revo. Why? It has a super low center of gravity (COG). There's nothing more aggrevating than having a truck like a T-MAXX with a super high COG flip over when turnng fast and resting on its side 100 yards away from you. The higher the COG the more it flips over when turning fast. I've had minimal issues withe the revo flipping over turning over due to its low COG. Flips over much less often than my Slash.

While it may be a okay speed man it isent exatually what i would want from a monster truck yes it jumps good easy to handle in the air plenty of power but well im not very satisfied i already sold mine and took a huge loss on it. if all you want to do is wheelies on 4s and speed runs.....why not buy it but if yoour looking for some real off road muddy fun with great handling keep scrolling it all is fixable tho just need some time and money
