MONSTER NEWS FROM TRAXXAS
What do you get when you put a T-Maxx and an F1 car in the same room, put on a little Frank Sinatra and serve some oysters? You get the Traxxas Revo. The question on everyone’s mind for years now is what’s going to replace the T-Maxx. Well that question will just have to rage on, because the Revo is not replacing the T-Maxx. It’s a completely new kind of monster truck that Traxxas thinks will once again, revo-lutionize the market. The Revo uses some of the most sophisticated design features we’ve seen on a monster truck. Here’s a look at some of the Revo’s key features:
• Constantly-variable progressive suspension that uses inboard shocks to protect from dirt and damage.
• Amazing suspension articulation.
• Replaceable rockers to control the amount of suspension progression.
• Zero bump steer steering geometry.
• The ability to make pro-level adjustments like roll-center, caster, progressive rate, ride height, and total travel.
• Threaded shock bodies.
• Patent-pending OptiDrive™ electronically controlled forward/reverse transmission. An actual microprocessor replaces bulky clutches for lower rotating mass and quicker acceleration.
• Constant drive engagement for instant acceleration.
• A lightweight micro servo is used for forward and reverse switching.
• 4-wheel shaft drive.
• Auto shifting 2-speed with adjustable shift point.
• Compact transmission and diff boxes.
• Disk brake with semi metallic pads, alloy calipers, and 40mm vented rotor.
• Dual steering servos powered by an integrated receiver pack.
• Included 5-cell 1100mAh Ni-MH RX pack along with an AC/DC peak charger with auto trickle.
• The Revo’s chassis is made from 3mm thick 6061 T-6 aluminum manufactured using a deep forming technology that helps with rigidity.
• Flywheel access allows for bump-starting.
• Skid plates and cages along with a roll hoop keep things safe.
• Absolute low CG design incorporated all over this truck.
• A new TRX 2.5R racing engine is used. It features a machined cooling head.
• A metal pipe and header are designed for optimum exhaust flow that exits out the back to keep the chassis free from exhaust oil.
• Traxxas’ EX-Start electric starting system comes standard
• Comes with a 48-page full-color owners manual and setup and tuning DVD.
• Long travel rocker and spring set.
• Fully assembled and ready to go with a painted, trimmed and decaled body.
• TQ-3, three-channel radio system included.
• Fully ball bearings with rubber sealed bearings.
• Traxxas Beadlock™ rims are designed to contain the tires during expansion.
This truck looks amazing. We’re dying to get our hands on one. Like we said earlier this truck is not intended to replace the T-Maxx. No official price has been set yet, but it will probably have a street price of about $100 more than the T-Maxx. Look for a complete review shortly.
