    Question Can anyone list off the Modifications on this Revo?



    It's in the window of my Local Hobby shop. I love the looks of it. They want $850.00 for it.

    In addition, tires/rims, header, pipe, fuel filter and a few other things here and there. NO way it is $850.00.
    Probably around $300-350.

    Double G, "No way it is $850.00." The card infront of it says $850.00 sir. It says it has over $500.00 in modifications alone.

    I'm really interested in finding out what the Rims/Tires are, the Cooling head, The fuel line protector's (small wiring that spirals around the tubing) What pipe and header it has, (Is that a TRX 3.3 with a aftermarket cooling head?) and what wing it is. -Thanks.

    Hence my comment on the price. Just because he spent $500 in mods alone, does not mean they are quality mods. And you don't get a dollar-for-dollar return on mods regardless if it is RC or an automobile. Hey, I'll sell you my Revo for $750 and it does run very well and will not fall apart. But if you want to spend $850 on that thing, go right ahead. Again, the best I would spend on a used Revo is around $300 or so depending on the mods and what comes with it.

    Even with all the upgrades and a brand new engine it's not worth 850.00 Most of the upgrades are for show not go

    $850 and no TX?? What gives? It's not worth close to $850. There are better ways to spend your money. Like someone else said buy a roller and build it the way you want to, way to much bling on that thing.

    ^^^^^this. All that integy garbage is lesser quality than the stock parts they replaced. My revo had a bunch of integy parts on it. Good thing all I paid was $100 for it as I've had to replace most of that junk with eBay chop shop parts. I wouldn't even pay what a bone stock revo goes for for that thing.

    Instead of taking pictures, outside through the window, go into the hobby store and ask them. C'mon the truck is right there, at the store. You can probably get pricing and everything when you ask. I am not trying to be a jerk, but the answers to your questions were right there at the store.

    Cooling head is a RB innovations , the spiral thing is Blue fuel line over the plastic fuel cap opener,Tire's/wheels are Axial terrarizer's on axial 8 spoke monster truck wheels,ofna wheel adapters "HoBAd" ...Hmmm? wants 850 over 500 in upgrades but coincidentally needs a starter in which they call " EZ Start box"...probably never been run cause it wont start....my 2c not worth it. When I go look at a 1:1 car with x amount of eye candy under the hood ..it better start and blow my ears off....If they tell me oh , unfortunately I have no keys, battery , starter etc...no deal.

    I see some things of value such as the lunsford stuff, the tires and wheels, its clean which means its more than likely been taking care of. To be honest I don't like integy but the parts that are integy aren't parts your going to have much problems with. The rpm arms are great, the pipe I can't comment on, the engine....... We all know how I feel about traxxas engines. Is it worth it?? To him yes I wouldn't take less than 8 for either of my revos but is it worth it to you? Imo no bc when you get it your going to want to change things and add mods of your liking and your going to end up spending another 3 or 4 hundred on it. My advice to you is buy a new revo and build it to your standards. Obviously money isn't an issue if your willing to pay 850 for it so I wouldn't buy a used one. I'd go new truck, and mods of my choice!

    I wouldn't touch it. It's just a shelf queen. Personally I think with all that bling it's worth less than a stocker.
