Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 Review

Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 Review

In the beginning, the Traxxas Revo was a nitro powered monster truck that set new standards for performance. Soon, brushless was taking over everything and the E-Revo was released. The electric form of the Revo was even more extreme, going even faster, and jumping even higher. It has just been a few weeks since the Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 was announced, [...]

ECX Barrage Doomsday Review

ECX Barrage Doomsday Review

When ECX announced the Barrage Doomsday from Horizon Hobby our mouths dropped! We had never seen a vehicle quite like it before.

How easy is [...]
