+1 on the Revo. I know people who have had a T-Maxx and it is a money pit.

REVO!!! I have had a t-maxx for about 4 years now and have just over 3k into it... (ya i know its stupid). I just traded into a 1/8 buggy and didnt expect to like it too much, (i have never even seen one before) but its the greatest thing ever. My new toy... Im not even sure what it is to tell you the truth, but now i want to race it bad bad... it handles soo much better than my t-maxx, that thing is hard to drive, always tries to flip over not like the buggy.

Dont get a maxx, i LOVE them but there a big money pit.

After i got my 1/8 buggy i was bored all the time because i had nothing to work on like i was used to, i was ALWAYS wrenching on my max, i spent at least a 1000 dollars in replacment parts!!
