Traxxas RTR 1/16 E-Revo Brushed Version

Jul 19, 2011 9 Comments by

Traxxas sets the standard for power, performance and innovation. Now, all the quality and capability you expect from Traxxas is available in 1/16 scale with the new 1/16 E-Revo. At 14 inches long, this E-Revo is about half the size of the 1/10-scale E-Revo. But don’t call it a “mini”—this is a whole new category of R/C performance and fun that no mere mini-model can match. Beneath the factory-finished polycarbonate shell, you’ll find the winning suspension technology of the eight-time National Champion Traxxas Revo®, high-torque Titan 550 power, and the convention-busting innovation of the E-Revo.

Modified Muscle

Leave it to Traxxas to put the huge torque of the Titan 550 motor into the 1/16 E-Revo for unstoppable climbing, roosting, monster performance! The Titan modified motor is designed for exciting mod-motor power output with long-lasting performance. The Titan 12T 550 motor’s integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through the motor to keep temperatures down. Airflow is routed through vent tunnels molded in the motor plate. A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. The XL-2.5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. Three drive profiles, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance are all features you might expect to only be available on an expensive replacement ESC.

Proven Traxxas Innovation

No detail was overlooked in our mission to bring all the capability, durability, and excitement of Traxxas’ award-winning models to 1/16 scale for fast, affordable R/C fun. The 1/16 E-Revo is built on the race-winning, track-proven innovation of the Revo and E-Revo models. The standard-bearer of design excellence, the Revo’s F1-inspired, rocker-actuated suspension has been expertly adapted to 1/16 scale with all its functionality and performance intact, right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks. This superior technology provides capability, performance, and tuning functions at the absolute pinnacle of truck design. The suspension and electronics are fully integrated into the semi-monocoque chassis design that stunned the world when it debuted with the E-Revo. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength and weight, function and aesthetics, convenience and performance to far surpass the standards of the “mini” category. In 1/16 scale, it is an even more impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio Control®.­

Waterproof Electronics For No-Limits R/C Excitement­

Now a hallmark of Traxxas vehicles, 1/16 E-Revo is the latest model to be equipped with fully waterproof electronics to keep the fun rolling in water, mud and snow while lesser cars stay on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses can accept aftermarket receivers without compromising the model’s waterproof properties. The new XL-2.5 electronic speed control and high-torque, digital micro servo are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom to go places other cars wouldn’t dare to venture.­

100% Ready-To-Race®

The 1/16 E-Revo is fully assembled with TQ radio system, Titan 550 motor, XL-2.5 electronic speed control, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger are also included, making the 1/16 E-Revo truly Ready-To-Race. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of Traxxas vehicles, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas’ exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs the 1/16 E-Revo and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your questions via phone, website, or e-mail. Unmatched parts support allows the E-Revo to be serviced with parts and support from thousands of hobby dealers worldwide. Your investment is also protected by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronics Warranty. Traxxas goes the extra mile to ensure that your R/C experience is easy and fun (and fast!).

    mannn u r so biased that it makes me wanna throw up…
    stop being biased, give honest reviews on products.

  2. Trevor "Chilly" Duncan says:

    Yes this is a press release, not a review. And it is kind of funny that you claim I’m biased when you use a user title of “savage-garage”. :)

  3. Giovanni says:

    Hey savage garage. I think you are probably the most stupid kid i have ever seen. If you actually read the article then you would notice that Chilly didnt give his opinion or say anything about how HE likes it. This was the press-release, go back to school.

  4. Hughsey82 says:

    Cmon Traxxas stop putting AM radios in the cheaper models. We all know the 2.4 ghz is getting mass produced, they cant cost that much more to manufacture…….

  5. Scott says:

    Really just sick of traxxas at this point…

  6. savage-garage says:

    hey “giovanni” i havent said this artical shows that they r biased, i said they r biased wihout relation to the artical, even squirrelod says they r biased and everybody say so.
    and dont call me stupid u dumbass…

  7. Patsky says:

    I dont really understand Traxxas with their AM radios….I kinda liked their agressivity with their new models last year but right now they are getting their ass kicked by HPI and their new waterproof trucks and car…my next one might be a HPI instead of a Traxxas…specially the new Savage XS….
