Some Traxxas Revo History

The nitro Revo: The Traxxas Revo was introduced in 2004 has a nitro only monster truck. It was unique with it’s monster truggy design, inboard cantilever suspension, balanced weight and excellent handling. In 2006 a revised model was released with stronger components and a more powerful 3.3 nitro engine. In 2008 a limited Platinum model was released (#5304), this truck is still highly sought after by collectors, it was released with the 3.3 engine, 30mm extended titanium chassis, sealed gear differentials, sway bars, oil filled shocks and sealed universal joing driveshafts, but didn’t include a radio. In 2010 it was revised, made 10% larger, a reversing transmission, electric EZ Start and a 2.4 ghz radio (goodbye crystals and antennas). In 2012 the truck was again updated, TQi with cell phone docking base now comes standard.

E-Revo: Introduced in 2010, the E-Revo hit the market as a brushed (30 MPH) or brushless (60+ MPH) monster truggy with a new molded, lower center of gravity chassis, 2.4 ghz transmitter, dual steering servos, quick release battery doors and either a Castle Mamba Monster 6S brushless power system or the Traxxas dual Titan 550 brushed motor system. In 2012, LiPo was mainstream and Traxxas actually included 2x 3S batteries and balance chargers with the truck. Some time has passed and in 2018 the truck was given a refresh. The truck now includes their MAXX-SPEC driveline system like the X-Maxx with stronger differentials, steel CV axles, ring/pinions and stub axles. The chassis was revised and made stronger. Self righting, using a button on the controller was now standard. The Castle Mamba Monster is replaced with the Traxxas VXL-6S 2200KV brushless system promising 70+ mph. Larger Talon EXT and 6 soke wheels were added for better handling, traction and stability.

Discontinued and Superceded

In late 2023 Traxxas confirmed that the E-Revo has been discontinued. Replaced by the Sledge, another large monster truggy basher. Sledge is heavier and more durable but very similar in dimensions to the E-Revo, the Sledge has a torquier 2000 KV VXL-6S power system, an anodized aluminum chassis, the inboard shocks are gone and replaced with large, oil filled conventional style shocks. The E-Revo may come back as a refreshed model but at the time of writing this, Traxxas is telling us that it wont. Parts are still available, we carry most of them but we do not have a time line on how long support/repair parts are going to be available from Traxxas.
