There was some info posted in the new products forum about a truck called the stadium maxx. It is basically a sportmaxx with a two speed tranny, racing tires and a new body. Nothing very exciting. It was removed from the new products forum very quickly, not sure why, maybe because Traxxas hasn't made their announcment for it yet. But this is probably what this Nitro chicken guy is talking about.

Well, I just read through that whole thread. The Traxxas guys are saying its not the stadium maxx. If thats the case I say it will probably be some sort of mini.

Traxxas should take the time to come out with an actual stadium truck racer instead of just constantly changing the T-maxx design. Maybe they should take their rustler...keep it just as diesel and make it race worthy.

I posted this awhile back.. like a month or two.. My LHS guy was on the phone with traxxas and he was pestering them about new stuff coming out and somebody on the other end mentioned the name 'invader'. Dont know what kinda vehicle it is, but thats the name I heard being tossed around. we'll see.

Yea i work at an LHS too and the guys and I were talking about the ne traxxas vehicle and that same name came up as well. Invader... i'm thinking that would be a good name for an 1/8th scale buggy. Not really anything mini but who knows. we just have to anxiously wait for another 4 hours and see....

the "stadium maxx" is probably just the sport maxx replacement...

the s-maxx is not the product it has been out for a week. on the traxxas board they said it has nothing to do with the t/e-maxx. the whole thing is different to the t/e-maxx

If this new car/truck/whatever is another best seller, it will be the icing on the cake for traxxas. :D

Traxxas used to make a racer stadium truck...the Eagle and Blue Eagle. They were decent trucks but struggled in competition against the AEs and Losis so Traxxas decided to concentrate on the market they were best at...basher kits and RTRs.

Thats one of the best looking traxxas vehicles i have ever seen. The revo pretty cool but i wish there were better pictures of the completed truck. It actually has a new 2.5 engine but its still a .15.

Traxxas is also comming out with a q-maxx. The q stands for quad. It kinda looks like a maxx from the pictures, it has a maxx style body with a man on top of it.

hey rcguy where did you get that info from?

sofa
04-07-2004, 08:04 PM
We are NOT comming out with a Q-Maxx.

Also remember guys that the Revo has nothing to do with the Maxx line of trucks!

hey sofa are you like a traxxas publishing department guy or something?

I think a 2.5 powered 1/8th scale buggy would be cool, and fast, but I don't know if Traxxas will ever make a 1/8th scale buggy. If it is mini, it better look cooler than to TLT-1!
