Ask you're self what you want to do with it?
I pondered the same q, and i ended up wanting the savage, but when i got to the shop it was sold out, so was every shop in town. i am impatient and went with the T-Maxx, and im glad i did
1) Easly broken Dog bones
2) Slow as can be
3) Heard the Steering servo is to weak
1) i never got the 2.5 engine to work (airleak, got a Sirio TX-18)
2) dislike the radio gear
other than that. those are what i see. both trucks are about the same. the T-Maxx is the fastest stock MT avalible. Either way you go, it will be fun. they are about the same reliablitly, parts avail. hop-ups etc. Go for what u like and be happy with it
