When the Revo was first introduced, it turned conceptions of what monster trucks should be on their heads. With a look somewhere between a monster truck and a race car, with Formula 1 inspired suspension, Revo was certainly something different. Once driven however, you'll see that Revo is not simply about goods looks - it has performance to match!
Throughout this section, you read of things being 'Revo-spec', and that's because this 4WD machine has so many incredible and innovative features that we just had to use them elsewhere in the range too - it's really that good!
So, what does the pinnacle of monster truck design and performance include? The latest 3.3 spec Revo is 10% bigger than the original and features the incredible TRX 3.3 nitro engine with Resonator tuned pipe for horsepower a-plenty! Fitted with the 'EZ-Start' electric starting system for no-fuss power ups, Revo can be off and running in the shortest time, and is supplied by a 150cc fuel tank for longer run times.
The semi-monocoque chassis, made from 3mm T6 aluminium, is beautiful to behold and combines strength with light weight. High strength composite transmission and suspension arm parts are bolted to this to form a compact whole. Hard-anodised Teflon-coated GTR oil-filled shocks with titanium nitride (TiN) shock shafts, mounted inboard with F1-style rocker arms, give superior shock absorption on a wide range of surfaces. This mounting method also gives incredible amounts of suspension travel to create the ultimate off-roader!
Revo 3.3 also features the revolutionary OptiDrive heavy-duty 2-speed forward/reversing transmission system, electronically operated and monitored for seamless shifting, plus adjustable Torque-control slipper clutch for precise power delivery. Heavy-duty drive shafts, sealed pivot-ball suspension, sealed limited-slip adjustable diffs, 17mm wheel nuts and hubs, rubber sealed ball bearings, metric hex hardware, Revo 3.3 has all this and more!
Included radio is the Traxxas TQi high-output 2.4GHz multi-function system, coupled to twin Traxxas 2075 high speed/high torque waterproof steering servos for unrivalled control and range.
Like all Traxxas vehicles, Revo 3.3 is backed up with spares support that is second to none and this includes many option parts to further race-tune and enhance the performance and looks of your ride!
Revo 3.3 is supplied fully assembled and ready-to-race with included Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz 3-channel radio system, battery pack and 12V DC charger for EZ-Start, receiver battery pack, fuel bottle, extra glow plug, extra air filter element, long-travel rocker arms & springs, tool set, plus a stunning ProGraphix pre-painted body with factory-applied decals.
Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) allows you to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into the Revo 3.3 by making it much easier to control on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle's direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain your line, and then allowing you to hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep you arrow straight until you come to a complete stop. TSM acts as your on-board co-pilot in the vehicle that "feels" what the vehicle is doing and makes corrections for vehicle movements that you cannot even detect, well before the vehicle gets out of control.
Traxxas TSM gives you all the benefits modern electronic stabilization has to offer without intruding on your driving fun. Traxxas engineers developed superior tuning algorithms that run on high-speed, precision electronic components to create a system that works invisibly, in the background, without ever limiting your throttle. TSM can be fine tuned (or turned off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas link app. The result is that you are driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun,with that fully connected feeling at the controls that you expect. In fact, you may not even realize how much TSM is helping you until you turn it off and test your driving skills without it!
