We all are familiar with the Traxxas E-Revo or at least have seen and heard about it. The first generation E-Revo was Traxxas’ toughest monster truck Before the X-Maxx arrived. E-Revo had a body style similar to that of the Rustler. The wheels stick from the body, which gives it a sleek look. Also, the E-Revo ran on a 6s power system that provided it with some really impressive power. Personally, I think the original E-Revo was a really powerful and durable RC Monster Truck. Let’s check out the Traxxas E-Revo Review.
Traxxas E-Revo – The Beast
Traxxas is at it again. With the release of the all-new E-Revo VXL Brushless RC Truck. “It” was formerly known as the Brushless Edition before this complete makeover. The first generation E-Revo has now been discontinued and Traxxas has done a complete re-design and really spared no expense with the new E-Revo.

The Second Generation E-Revo comes With only a handful of parts from the previous edition, This monster truck has been redesigned almost entirely of new parts and has dozens of upgrades. Traxxas wanted to go thicker/tougher/stronger with the new E-Revo. This new E-Revo released Early 2018 is built ultimately for going fast, bashing hard, high jumping and the ability to keep coming back for more. There truly is no other monster truck like this one.
All the new parts Traxxas installed into this bad boy is paired with all new stunning technology and innovation. You still get all the original benefits, on top of these all new features, which create one intense monster with brute strength and insane speed.
The new E-Revo provides extreme monster power from its Velineon VXL-6s system, which produces some impressive speeds of 70+mph. The extreme power of this monster truck is manageable with the help of the Traxxas Stability Management system.
The first generation E-Revo suspension has long travel that comes with GTR shocks to make it able to handle high jumping and hard-hitting action with its rocker-actuated suspension, that drastically multiplies the suspension travel for huge articulation and what feels like a bottomless well of plush damping.
Other benefits of this second generation E-Revo include built-in progressive spring rate thanks to the rocker geometry and the ability to independently change adjustments, such as ride height without affecting the damping and spring rate
The new E-Revo has a cost of $589.99 very close to its original price tag, “At” only costing $20 more than the older model. For that price, you are getting much more truck.

New E-Revo is built to Maxx-Spec. Taking inspiration from its big brother the X-Maxx, The first generation E-Revo’s drive system has been designed to meet today’s demands for extreme power, Higher Jumping, and harder bashing than the first generation E-Revo. E-Revo comes out of the box ready for action.

Traxxas E-Revo Review – Summary
This review of the New Traxxas E-Revo has talked about the new design of the RC Monster Truck and the 6s power system used in the truck. We talked a little about the new body Traxxas designed to hold up to the abuse. Mentioned the drive train that was put in the E-Revo that was originally designed for the X-Maxx. Even talked about the all-new self-righting system and some main features and specs of the E-Revo.
With the experience, I have had with the first generation E-Revo which was a great RC Monster Truck, Which is now discontinued. This second generation E-Revo is designed to be tougher and pack more power to make it the most durable and insane monster truck available.
This really appeals to me, “AS” I run all my RC Vehicles hard and have broken them all at one point or another. “If” it can be broken, “I” am sure I will break it. Do you like running your RC off-road? Does Extreme off-road power and torque sound interesting to you? Then maybe this Monster Truck is the right one for you. They can be pre-ordered.
