.15 powered, I have a NIB TRX2.5 I'd swap in!!!
I'd trade that 3.3 for like an OS .12/.15 motor , or something with a USABLE powerband.

The 3.3 is only in this truck as a sell point over the SC10gt, which is .18 i think.
I would bet money that if Traxxas put the 2.5 (.15) in this, (Cough*LIKE THEY SHOULD) they would think that poeple will buy the sc10 because it has more umphhh.
I can imagine all the people going back and forth and eventually saying
"i want the one with the biggest motor"
Imagine if they were able to get a licensing deal with NOS. You don't even have to do anything different, just put NOS logos on the engine.

Nitro is only dead here on URC. Out in the real world nitro is still pretty popular.

Also why wouldn't Traxxas put a stupid big motor in it? How many guys buy the regular 2wd slash and put stupid big motors in and run 3S? Having more power then can possibly be controlled or actually transferred to the road surface is what many bashers are all about, for reasons I can't comprehend, and Traxxas caters to that crowd.

Personally, while I definitely want a nitro this isn't the one for me.
Agreed. I think the reason for urc being mostly electric is beacuse jang 99% of the time does electric so its not all that popular here.

I don't really understand why everybody is so negative about this truck. Think about this: Traxxas already had developed the majority of the parts in this truck. The Engine and starting system are reused, the chassis is mostly reused. They may have put some time developing exclusive shock mounts or whatever, but the majority of the parts were probably sitting on Traxxas warehouse shelves.

So they take a bunch of parts they already have, throw them together in a "new" configuration, and bring something new to market. What's the harm in that? Seems to me that it fills a gap and they are only $389! That's a lot of power for less than $400, and while it might be a handful to drive some guy love going out on the dirt trails behind their houses and just getting silly.
Sounds like they are taking lessons from Harley Davidson. HD has like 30 different models of motorcycles using like 4 chassis and less than a half dozen engines.

Hmm - so Traxxas took many parts they already have and put it under the name/platform that is probably their best seller? No brainer to me!

I've always wanted a nitro RC and for some reason this one really intrigues me. Don't think it'll ever happen tho - living in the burbs all I'd do is tick off the neighbors and possibly run into a small kid on their bike...heh.

Nitro guys are too busy cleaning the oily film off their rigs to use the internet.
