I think the savage is better for your needs. It's WAY more durable than the revo, and looks more realistic. The revo would handle better, but if you're looking for handling, get a truggy.

Savage x rtr is hands down the better truck for bashing. There is no comparison to a revo 3.3 in the bashing department. The revo will break time and time again.

And I've had both trucks in question so I DO have knowledge to back my opinion........

Thumbs up

Revo 3.3 way more fun and has enough durability I jumped it over my house and landed upside down. I flipped it over and I was on the road again.

Look at some truggies maybe? They'll handle better than the both MTs, and insanely durable. They are faster for drag racing, too. On top of all that, they are cheaper.
CEN matrix truggy is selling for less than $400 in some places. Thunder tiger ST1 can be found for $300 or less.
Good luck.

Like I said earlier I would go with the savage. I just bought me a x 4.6 rtr this past week to go along with my losi raminator and tmaxx 3.3.

Here's a pic and a couple short videos of it during it's 3rd tank of break in. I heat cycled the first two tanks by running it with foil over the head for 10 minutes with temps around 200 and then would bring it inside and let it cool completely. Did that for the first two tanks. On the 3rd I got a little video footage. Truck is still extremely rich on the top end as I can't wind it out in the video. Just blipping it around.

I would have 2 say it depends on a couple of factors,the revo is pretty easy 2 start and drive.(own 1) Second when u say stuff will break i guess they all will if going about 20 and hit tree or curb, i think they are both good trucks,but i vote for revo
