I have both and they are quality products. The Tmaxx 2.5
has all the upgrades in the world. You can transform this truck
into anything your pockets will allow. The engine is solid likes to run a little hot 260. The out of the box hardware can take some punishment and the repairs are cheap using stock parts. The radio supplied has good range. The only out of the box upgrade
to race is a stronger steering servo or upgrade to a better battery pack.( Tighten shock caps) I have run the dog out of this truck with little down time due to the trucks fault. Aside from a soccer goal post direct hit only lost a bulkhead and lower arm.
The Savage 21 is its own breed of 1|8. The supply of upgrades is limited but coming along ck out www.neweramodels.com
It handles better than my maxx out of the box. It does not quite have that bottom snap( Wheelies) but will run out as well top end.
You can stuff this dog in a turn. Engine is solid runs cool. 1 pull after starts. I have the EL Camino body on and put the Savage on my Maxx Rebadged.
I cannot draw a line in the sand on either truck. On weekends they are BOTH always in my truck in search of the Ultimate Hill.
I would bet either will bring a smile to your face.
Okay hope this helps unless you need info on the xtm x-terminator 24.7 I am breaking in
