Traxxas Revo Monster Truck

The Traxxas Revo is the most technologically advanced RTR monster truck ever produced!  The name REVO is appropriate because the advanced features will probably start another "revolution" in the RC Monster Truck world!  The first revolution occurred years ago when Traxxas first released the T-Maxx truck.  Traxxas has been working on the Revo behind the scenes for nearly 2 years.  Traxxas is known for their quality products like the legendary Traxxas T-Maxx which has been the best selling RC vehicle in history with over 1 million sold!  The Revo does not replace the popular T-Maxx, but it comes along side it as another vehicle in the Traxxas product line up.  The Revo truck comes with an impressive list of standard features that would be considered hop ups and upgrade parts on other trucks - and many of the innovative technologically advanced features are so unique that they could not even be purchased for another truck at any price!

Traxxas Revo Truck in Action 

This exciting new truck created quite a stir in the RC world (even before it was released)!  Initially, Traxxas put final release date in June 2004.  The release of the Traxxas Revo was delayed a little and it was actually released in July.  It looks like Traxxas has come out with another big hit!  Radio Control Car Action magazine has already selected the Revo as the Truck of the Year for 2004.  Look below for many more details on this innovative RC truck.
