Traxxas introduce new E-Revo VXL monster truck

Traxxas’ popular E-Revo monster truck has received a massive overhaul with the 2018 edition being considered faster and stronger than ever before. The truck builds on an innovative low centre of gravity chassis with major components such as batteries being placed as low and close to the centreline as possible. Key areas were targeted for added strength and rigidity, such as the battery compartments and bulkhead mounts while new front and rear top braces resist flex and further protect the inboard shocks. Upgraded front and rear differentials with massively larger ring and pinion gears use over twice as much steel for extreme durability while heavy weight oil gives them the performance feel of limited slip differentials. The steel drive cups fit over 8mm hardened steel output shafts which ride on oversized sealed bearings.

The torque-biased centre drive unit features an integrated cush drive to protect the driveline against impacts and it is precision-tuned to allow instant wheels-up punches pff the line and seamless, virtually invisible operation at speed. The advanced in-board suspension allows for high suspension travel while offering a low centre of gravity. The truck is powered by the VXL-6s power system with the speed controller being telemetry-ready and the massive 2200kV brushless motor allows for top speeds of over 90km/h. The package is rounded off by new multi-terrain tyres on black 6-spoke rims and a new body shell that is available in two designs. The truck is set for a release in late February.
