Oh, and 4wd kicks the poo out of 2wd. Remember, you could always take the guts out of any of the 4wd's and make it 2wd (which I did w/ the savage, and it was fun)

With the truggies center diff, you'd need to get an extra diff and lock it somehow, but then you wouldn't have a slipper anywhere. May be hard on the drivetrain, but you'd probably be ok.


Done for now

Listen to what Richb3 is saying, he hit the nail on the head with that one. I would advise you to stay away from the savage, in the 25 RTR form its not bad, but as soon as you put a faster engine in it the drivetrain just falls apart, plus it is a huge pain to work on.

WheelNut and richb3,

THANK YOU for the post. GREAT info there!
I am going to go with a OFNA Jammin RTR TRUGGY once it is released. Not that I have a problem with a kit, I would just rather take something apart rather than build up from scratch ... just my opinion to any "purist" left out there
The OFNA sounds like the real deal and seems to have been "built right".
I don't really have a problem with 4wd, but 2 speed trannys is just not what I am looking for.
I just don't see how ANY 1/8 truck offered today can compare with an OFNA Jammin Truggy...

thunder tiger also has a new truggy based on the S3 buggy, called the ST-1, i've got one of these trucks and it is awsome, i had a savage and a LST, and they are nothing compared to the ST-1, price would be the same as the jammin, maybe less, comes with a good 28, good servos for a rtr, might be worth looking at, i dont know about where your from, but around her TTR parts are much much easier to get than jammin stuff,

Default trucks

i have a savage, lst, revo, and a lsp truggy, and i get around the track faster
with the losi lst. so far it has been a cinch to work on.
savages are COOL, but they are a pain to work on.
and my truggy is waaaaaaay faster than i can drive.
i would go with the lst.
all you have to do is put tires on it and race.
it comes with very good electronics, a stout mach .26, and typical losi
good engineering.
ALL OF THE GEAR, none of the skill!
