Traxxas Nitro 4-Tec: d-d-dangerous!

Probably the most dangerous looking of all of Traxxas‘ models is theTraxxas Nitro 4-Tec 3.3. This sleek sports-car model comes ready-to-run and can reach incredible speeds of up to 75mph. This top speed makes it the fastest ready-to-run RC Car model created to date. A Nitro-fuelled RC Car, the 4-Tec 3.3 boasts Traxxas’ newest 3.3 engines that gives a 50% boost in horsepower under the curve, and a 60% boost when you push your RC cars limits at top speeds. This increase in torque translates to smooth, linear power output with better performance across the entire RPM range.

The Revo's been upgraded with the new TRX 3.3 racing engine offering 60% increased peak horsepower. With a lower center of gravity and longer wheelbase - the revo takes RC trucks to the next level reaching speeds over 55mph!

Traxxas Revo Tears Through Any Terrain

A Revo Will Make Your Kids Scream

New and improved, the new Traxxas Revo 3.3 ups the ante from it’s predecessor the Revo 2.5 (with the TRX 2.5 racing engine). This new monster truck model has a 50% increase in overall horsepower under the curve and a 60% increase in peak horsepower. Hailed for creating a whole new level of power and speed, RC Car Action magazine calls the TRX 2.5, “the most powerful small block engine [they've] ever tested.” There is definitely a degree of reflexes and handling required to keep her steady at extreme speed and acceleration.

Are You Ready?

As well as a massive increase in torque, this updated Revo also has an additional 30 mm of chassis length to provide additional support around the engine mount. This longer wheelbase is combined with installed progressive 2 suspension rockers to stabilize the vehicle. This stability along with the tough mud tires that come with Traxxas models are what you need if you want to put the pedal to the metal on even the roughest sections of track and terrain.

RC Car Videos Of The Savage X In Action!!

This is an upgraded version of the HPI Savage. It has all new features, making it go faster and harder than ever. This is a good choice for a first timer because you can bash this thing to oblivion and it will still keep running - one of the most durable RC trucks ever created to this date.

So how do you improve upon a popular classic? Well, the focus on the HPI Savage X was increasing speed, adjustability and durability. By taking suggestions from HPI Savage users, HPI Racingwas able to incorporate a variety of changes to enhance the Savage to it’s full potential. This includes features like a wider more aggressive body, new graphics and an optional nylon roll cage for the engine of your Savage.

Also in the upgraded version of HPI’s Savage (X) the low center of gravity of the Savage’s TVP chassis drops the engine, center gearbox and radio 5mm lower than the HPI Savage 25, which ultimately results in better handling and faster lap times, hence the increased speed of the Savage X.
