    JATO = Jet Assisted Take Off. And I'm pretty sure it's Revo for Revolution, but I'm not entirely sure.

    Ya, the Jato is a rocket that the military uses to help aircraft with heavy loads take off. So they are really powerful thats why they use that name. Now as for Rustler I have no clue why they chose that, i mean cow hustler come on! lol.
    Gone 4 years but i'm back.

    Stampede: It charges!
    Revo: revolutionary.... seriously it is revolutionary
    Jato: jet assisted take off ... yup it's fast enough
    Rustler: it makes funny noises?
    bandit: because someone stole the prototype plans while it was in development?
    t-maxx: .....
    e-maxx; electric version of t-maxx
    Yes I did get some of those from others.

    It's probably traxxas maxx. I think traxxas came from Texas and something else.

    Maybe thats how the Stampede, Rustler, and Bandit got their names. Texas is a state where those names could come from.

    I think rustler shouldve been $$$Hustler$$$. And the body should have been $500 bills and $100 dollar bils falling from trees. And have a huge golden $ on the hood. And had some 5.0 inch rims with low profile tires.

    That would be a heck of a wierd car.

    What I'm wondering is where they got the name for the new VXL BL system.
    It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

    That would be a heck of an UGLY car that only kids who wear super-baggy pants and listen to rap music non-stop would like. jk

    Yea i thought REVO came from revolution because of the suspension setup being horizontal apposed to vertical like most monster trucks.

    What are you tryin to say. I like all of the above but not super-baggy pants .

    I would never buy it it would be real ugly. The only reason i would buy it is cause of the 5.0 inch tires. Think of how much clearence it would have

    That would look too tacky IMO. The ground clearance wouldn't help at all, because with those huge wheels and low-profile tires you couldn't drive it off-road.

    its just a thought. Why are you tring to start an argument. I posted one little thought and if you notice your the only one whose replied with negative thoughts. And what you said about rap music and super baggy pants can be insulting. Id rather wear super baggy pants than super tight pants that go above your knees and listen to rap music than rock & roll and country. No offense to people who like that or any thing.

    If it had good suspension you can have low profile tires like in 1:1 cars and trucks. You could put off road tires on it.

    Like what i said earlier i just thought of a name that rhymes with rustler. Traxxas probaly would never make somthing like that.

    You know, I seriously thought that was a joke. The way you wrote the post made it sound like you were being sarcastic. I'm sorry if I offended you...
