The Revo 3.3 Stands Alone as the Ultimate Nitro Monster Truck
Monster innovation, monster versatility, and supreme size come together in the one truck that could only come from Traxxas. The Revo 3.3 defines what it means to be the pinnacle of monster truck performance, the standard bearer for cutting edge innovation and boundless capability that all others are measured against. The Revo 3.3 is pure monster to its core with its massive presence, meaner gaze, and feature-rich capability. More importantly, Revo's advanced engineering equips it for fun, and the Revo 3.3 delivers even more of it!
CHARGER NOTE: The included charger requires a cigarette lighter socket found in full size vehicles to charge. If this is not your preference, Traxxas offers an adapter allowing you to charge from a standard home AC electrical socket (TRA2976).

I've had 8 different Traxxas models, this being one of them, and love them. The customer service is great if something breaks, they sent me a $75 part because mine wasn't working right, replaced a motor on my e-maxx well after the warranty was up for FREE. You can break anything on any RC car, but besides a-arms I've never had to replace a part except for the two I mentioned because of Traxxas being what that other dude said. They are tough, fast, and my son and I love them. This guy is putting them down and my Summit can literally push my Lexus ES300 down the road. Does that sound like crap to you?
First off let me start with saying I am not biased in any way towards or against Traxxas for any reason other than my experience with their products and customer service. Now that thats out of the way.
I purchased my Revo 3.3 used. I bought it from a consignment rack at my local store and it was the previous generation, I picked it up for 125 bucks, and put another 200 into it to freshen it up and update it to the current generation, ebay is wonderful for that lol.
After restoring all the plastics with garage blaster and replacing the transmission with a new updated version, fresh batteries, going through the engine and sealing it with RTV and grease on the needle threads, fresh piston and sleeve (had low compression from previous owner), fresh air element, new tires and a pro graphics body reinforced with good ole shoe goo and dry wall tape, i broke the engine in per my slow-to-fast 10 tank method and this thing RIPS. With the engine sealed properly there arent any air leaks so its very easy to tune, a bit troublesome on humid days, but i rarely go out on days where its gross and muggy so its not a huge downer. Lots of speed, once you tune the transmission shift points properly it will scream at about 40+ down the road and it gets there QUICK so be ready and make sure you can stop safely encase of emergency.
Durability wise I have no complaints, if you smack a curb or rock at 20-40mph its gonna break, thats physics... one set of RPM arms later and not a single part has busted again. Good work Traxxas, 5 stars from me. I would recommend this car for both beginners and veterans to nitro. If you are a beginner, learn how to seal your engine, sealing the back plate and carb with RTV and needle threads with grease will eliminate air leaks that cause random lean conditions and makes tuning fun instead of a frustrating experience. I seal ALL MY RC ENGINES BEFORE I BREAK THEM IN, NOT JUST TRAXXAS! Nearly all RC engines will come from the factory with defects in the seals and you need to address it or you will hate nitro.
That being said, once in the ball park, i only adjust my needles 1/8th of a turn one way or the other depending on ambient temp, its that easy.... I run only the best Byron Race 2000 fuel for long life, lots of power and maximum reliability. Stay away from traxxas fuel, its crap lol not nearly enough lube in it and horrible quality hydrocarbons.
I had an entirely different review written, but I will not give any praise to any product from a company that is an utter stain on this great hobby. traxxas is an absolute plague to RC with incredibly cheap, incredibly overpriced products many of which obtain designs they've lifted from many other brands and have built their success off of stealing previous ideas, the same ideas they have (and currently are) sued other companies for utilizing, only doing much better and for a much cheaper price than traxxas. I am truly sorry I purchased this vehicle made by the worst name in the RC industry. My sincerest hopes their lawsuits not only come back on traxxas in the most negative way possible, but bury their company in bankruptcy and hopefully obscurity as well.
Edit: Jason, all RC’s break ‘at different rates’. “All RC’s break” is a crap excuse to give for a poorly made product of any kind. And your Summit can’t push your vehicle. Your bias is bleeding through your post.
