Tons of aftermarket hop up and replacment parts. Good warrenty.
I have had mine since April 7th. It's taken a pretty good beating and all I have boke so far (knock on wood) is a shock rod end.

And I have spent about the same amount of time on my back as I have on my rubber.

Hardest I have hit anything ... guessing would be doing about 20. nothing bent or broke.

The TRX 3.3 I personaly find a little difficult to get to hold a good tune. But once I have it dialed in it will pull wheelies from a stop right threw 2nd if you play with the throttle just right. (many say that they can not get thiers do pull wheelies.... but then again this is a race truck)

If you want to run at wide open throttle all day, I wold stay away from ANY traxxas nitro. I have red a few posts about the motor being fried in less then 3 gallons.

But again , the warrenty, support and replacment parts.... tons of them.

Lots of them are being bought. See more and more of them at the races.

I like mine.

Hope that helps some.

Wow lots of people bash on the TRX motors. I havnt had a bad one yet. My 3.3 hold a tune better than any motor I have. Except for maybe the RB concepts. Set up the TRX motors correct the first time and only minor adjustments based on temp and pressure that day. If sombody blows up a TRX motor its only for one of two reasons... A very rare bad motor or your not tuning it right. As for the Revo. The revo is a great truck tough as nails. Far better than Savage or anything else IMO in a race. and still great for bashing. Great overall truck. I have two.
