    Does anyone know if the new Revo is still using the old chassis. I just happen to have one. I was going to build a stronger one myself but it seems Traxxas did the work for me if the parts will fit. This will be very interesting ( Read $$$$$ ) .

    they seemed to use a thicker plastic chassis in pictures but i cant tell if its a new design or not im guess it will be the same shape but thats just a guess, waiting for more information to clear all those details up.

    What do you guys think of the new color of the E-revo 2.0, compared to the old one? I think the old one has more stealth look and the new one is more of a toy color. Hard to accept.

    Well the e-revo has always had 4 color choices so there's probably more to be seen as far as choices go.

    If this is the only body color scheme offered which i doubt it is i will stick with one of the old school body and color schemes for this one which has a mean yet classy look to it.

    I think the new color scheme is absolutely horrible, like they gave a 4 year old some mostly empty bottles of paint and told him to go crazy. Although that didnt stop me from pre-ordering one with my LHS.

    Also, this "clipless" body mount, how will that handle in hard driving and bashing? Anyone have a car with that?

    The X-Maxx has been using this tech since late 2015, it works really well.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    Dont know, i just saw something about the ESC. Looks like it has the same ESC as the X-Maxx, witch means maybe it will run up to 8S!? And if so, maybe the battery compartment can be bigger. Just look at this picture!

    According to Big Squid RC:

    E-Revo 2.0. The last E-Revo was absolutely a legend for its bashing capabilities, the new version is beefed up to the hilt. Here is some of what we know-

    * Old bodies will still fit
    * All new design
    * Self righting
    * Body now attaches like the X-Maxx, no body clips
    * Reinforced chassis
    * X-Maxx sized diffs
    * Mod 1 transmission
    * New shocks, tougher a-arms
    * X-Maxx sized steel CVD driveshafts
    * Redesigned ESC
    * Starts shipping in March
    * Estimated pricing of $589.99

    $589 isn't too bad... I might just get one of these... they used to sell the old e-revo for well over $600 and the prices since then have come a long way down..

    First they're joking about how only the front bumper and rear wing are the same as the old Revo and everything between is new and revised.
    Then a lot of joking about how this thing is meant for big air, over houses, heck even skyscrapers, but since it weighs more than 250gr (1/2lb) it has to be registered as a drone, and how the rear wing would be a good place for the drone registration decal. LOL.
    Then they get a bit more serious.

    -Body mounts are X-Maxx-style and has plastic bumpers on the roof which are connected to the rollcage inside the body to protect better against roof landings/crashes.
    -Motor mount is beefed up and almost twice as thick as the old one (5-7MM).
    -Motor mount also has designated holes/presets for ease of adjustments when switching spurs and/or pinion gear.
    -Chassis looks to be made out of the same material as the old one, but has revised battery doors so they don't pop open quite as easy as they did before after a hard landing.
    -The new shock mounts are not for esthetics, but serve the purpose of transmitting impact energy when hitting a curb or when landing on the nose after big air toward the center of the chassis, toward the beefed up motor mount and transmission.
    -Transmission appears to be direct drive.
    -Drive shafts are massive, so are the bearings on the axle carriers to ensure longevity.
    -Rear body mount with rear chassis brace appears to be flex free and help to beefen up /mitigate chassis flex.
    -A-Arms appear to be much thicker, and made out of the same fiber infused(?) plastic as the X-Maxx.
    -Skid pates are all connected to the chassis, rather than the bulk heads, again to mitigate chassis flex.

    All in all I would say pretty much everything we realized was wrong with the EREVO over the years was fixed.
    Only thing they didn't like was the drive cups of the shafts, as it allows dirt to wear down the dogbone, which I think should be an easy fix.

    BTW, German is my first language. ;-)

    Well pricing in US is far cheaper than in Sweden. The old E-revo BL is around $880 now.

    6S Max. It will use the X-Maxx ESC, but a revised 6S version

    Chassis is also thicker, also the plastic itself is also stronger, or so I heard.

    Since when had software ever stopped us? I give it 2 days before some brilliant mind here figures out how to jail break the ESC and unlock 8s capabilities for the ERBE. After that the only obstacle is batteries that will fit. I'll leave all that tech stuff to the more qualified though, I'll just start a fire if I tried.

    With the upgrades they did to the E-Revo, I bet it would handle 8S, using say...an X-Maxx 8S Motor/ESC.

    From what I heard by other people who were at that convention, the Battery Trays are revised internal and external (battery door). No idea if they made them bigger tho.

    Why are people looking for the roller version? Will it be a better one? I don't get it.

    With a roller you can just swap your electronics and go or put in your own aftermarket motor and ESC without having to buy a complete truck. Something I will probably consider in a year since I just bought one of the last old school Revo in December.
