Traxxas T-Maxx 3.3 or HPI Baja 5T

  • This may seem like a silly questions but I am debating between the two. I only run in dirt/grass and am looking for a true basher.

    Thought about going with a Savage but I do not like how you have to take apart half of the truck to fix little problems.

    Losi XXL Looks pretty Nice too, but I know nothing about Losi.

    I am really leaning towards the Baja 5T as there is no tuning, 45 minutes of run time and gas is cheaper.

    Which would you guys go with and why?

    Why do you say this? Why Losi over T-Maxx 3.3 and HPI Baja 5T?
  • stronger than the tmaxx better quality and parts and radio and servo's...and as far as the baja its kool but it dont have a big WOW factor to me.. cant back flip it realy...soo bashing may get boring
  • i have a 5b ss and a t maxx 2.5. i love my 5b, its size alone makes its cool even if you just drive up and down the street. just because it can't "back flip" doesn't mean it isn't awsome. the size and power open up a whole new set of challenges. motocross tracks are amazing with it. I would definately go with the 5t. the ease of an electric with the fun of nitro. no tuning, always starts, idles forever. I own over a dozen cars from 1/18 up to 1/5 scale, and the 5b is far and away my favorite. just wish there was more racing for them around here...
