Greg Graves’ Traxxas Revo

Greg Graves’ Traxxas Revo

Greg found this Traxxas Revo on eBay in need of a little loving care and it was soon restored back to mint condition. He swapped the original 2.5 nitro engine for a more robust TRX3.3 Racing Engine, but the real handiwork here is Greg’s careful construction of the wood paneling he added to the bed of the Pro-Line ’56 Ford F-100 body. Each panel is genuine white oak, cut with a table saw and sanded, shaped, and stained to perfection. As for the paint, Greg says it’s his first attempt at painting an RC body. First body or not, we must say those flames look righteous!
