    If you mean the electric revo I would say yes! But if you mean the nitro version I would say no because they are to similar of vehicles if you already have 2 tmaxx's

    The Revo is a better handler, it won't flip as easy as the t maxx. The revo sits a little lower than the t maxx which is why it handles better. T maxx has slightly better acceleration because of lower gear ratio, the revo has slightly better top speed. The revo is durable by design, the revo chassis covers the entire bottom of the truck which makes it more durable. After that, the two are similar. Don't know if that helps.

    Yes you will be gaining. Revos are generally more durable. they only have one major weak point from my experience and thats a arms. Rpm fixes that.

    I got the revo and love it...the maxxs seem faster and deff better at poppi.g wheelies but I can turn this so much harder stop harder without flipping it amazing the way it handles. Wow.only prob is the guy I bought it from had alot of cats and I think they peed all over it. Yuke it stinks. Now I gotta figure out how to get the cat wee off of it and ill be set.

    If it's bad I'd take the electronics out and plug up the engine(not sure if you said it's nitro or E) and spray and wash it with Simple Green. It can't hurt to take apart a used purchase to check it over for any problems
