    Why one motor

    Why wouldnt traxxas use two for more torque? This new titan must be a super titan.
    What am I supposed to write in 50 characters?

    Probably because only one motor is needed. Did you check out that intro video? In high gear, she looked pretty quick! It didn't appear to have a lack of torque in the video either... especially when it was in low gear with those AWESOME remote locking differentials!

    Those diffs are amazing. How fast in high gear?

    Traxxas again has hit the target with a great truck ! New features and the price will come down as the truck makes it's way into the market. Very interesting on how this will compete with the crawlers.

    I think they didn't use two because it probly wouldve caused heat issues with the evx2.Im wondering if the 775 can handle more then 16.8.I know,evx can onely handle 16.8.but just wondering since kenshaws can.

    2 motors would have been sweet but as mudshredder said there would have been heat issues,then the would have to make a new esc like an evx 3

    one big motor is more efficient than 2 smaller ones. and it has plenty of torque, so there's not really a need for 2. and there are less problems with the use of one motor because you avoid issues like both motors not spinning at the same rate, or excessive heat on one motor because it's not working as hard as the other, and other problems along those lines.

    It's funny that people always think that. When the Slash came around (first new truck in a while) people were aghast at the price. Every one was saying, "It will be cheaper when it's readily available."

    They choose a price because that's what it's worth, not so they can gouge every one in the beginning then treat every one fair months later.

    The price will remain the same, just as they always do.

    This is going to be what the Revo was to MT`s I think. this thing is sick. The one motor it has is a 770 the ones in the Emaxx/Erevo is only 550.

    Actually, a 775, to be exact. :P

    I was referring to the price that people are quoting now.Tower has it 729.99,and so on.Just like the VXL price that has changed ! If you can be patient you will find a deal on new addition to the Traxxas lineup.
