Read on to find out more about the newly redesigned Traxxas E-Revo.
The Traxxas E-Revo Legacy and the Latest Model
The original E-Revo boasted a unique look, with the wheels sticking out from the body. It's 4x4 engine and compact design made it one of the most durable RC vehicles ever.
Countless RC enthusiasts had tons of fun with the old model. At the time of its launch, it was one of the most popular RC monster trucks, with great performance and tons of unique features.
The original E-Revo won many awards. Now, these first generation E-Revos have been discontinued.
The future of 4x4 monster trucks is the second generation Traxxas E-Revo. These new beasts have been completely redesigned from the ground up, with only a few parts from the first edition.
Launched in 2018 with the motto: "Power. Strength. Speed.", the new E-Revo sets a new benchmark for RC monster track performance. It packs all the features of the original, plus tons of new stuff, making it "the ultimate 6s monster".
Second Generation Traxxas E-Revo Overview
The latest rendition of the E-Revo can speed up to 70 mph, which make it one of the fastest commercial RC cars. This requires top-tier stability and steering, otherwise, the speed goes to waste.
The car's suspension system is top-notch, leveraging the unique design with the sticking out wheels to give you unmatched shock dampening.
On top of the original's durability, the new E-Revo can adjust ride height and spring rate dynamically. This improves responsiveness without affecting performance.
Let's look into each feature in more detail below:
Velineon VXL-6s Motor
The motor is the heart of every RC truck. The new E-Revo 2.0 comes with the Velineon VXL-6s ESC, which boasts 25V power output and a 2200kV brushless motor. This is the same technology that Traxxas uses for their X Maxx series.
This gives the E-Revo 2.0 a max speed of over 70 mph. At these speeds, you will be able to perform stunts others can only dream of! As you increase speed, the throttle gets softer and then hardens at the end of the throttle to give you that extra kick for standing backflips.
The motor is waterproof and extremely durable.
Body and Drive Train
The Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 is a really tough beast. It boasts steel driveshafts, 8mm axles, and a slipperless Cush Drive.
The overall design makes it virtually unbreakable, boosting the signature E-Revo body with massive body reinforcements. The bottom of the body gets protection from the stick-out wheels, while the top of the body boasts a reinforced cage to protect it from roll over damage during extreme stunts or competitive racing.
The drive train is built to withstand the raw power of the Velineon VXL-6s motor.
Wheels and Tires
The tires of the original E-Revo got some of the best reviews, and the 2.0 follows that trend with even sturdier tires and wheels. The truck comes with the new all-terrain Talon EXT tires that are made of a special rubber compound.
The wheels themselves have also been reinforced to withstand the awesome power of the 6s motor.
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM)
As this is a Traxxas truck, it comes packing the award-winning Traxxas Stability Management system (TSM). TSM manages power automatically as you steer. This makes the truck responsive even at top speeds.
Thanks to TSM, you can perform tricks and maintain total control of your new E-Revo even when revving up to 70 mph!
With a 2200 kV motor and 70 mph, you will definitely roll over more than once. But worry not, thanks to Traxxas' self-righting technology, you can flip your E-Revo back up with the push of a button.
The exclusive self-righting system means no interruptions when you conquer off-road tracks!
The E-Revo 2.0 comes with a standard TQi 2.4GHz radio system that will not let you down. You can further soup up your remote controller with the Traxxas wireless module.
The wireless module will give you a ton of real-time info and telemetry. This includes voltage measurements, temperature, and a reliable speed meter.
Overall Performance and Fun Factor
The new E-Revo brings back all that made the original E-Revo so great, plus a ton more! At 6s, you will keep up with the baddest beasts in the dirt track and outperform even legends like the X Maxx in terms of sturdiness.
This is an RC truck that just refuses to break even during the hardest bashes at max speeds. The top-tier suspension and stability management ensure smooth control, making this a really fun RC car to own.
If you appreciate extreme off-road driving, you will love the new Traxxas E-Revo 2.0. It's strong, it's tough, and it's tons of fun to drive!
