you must be a newbie, a traxxas is a remote control brand that has been around for quite some time and has awsome customer support for what they sell! unlike many other brands!

They dont break if you drive an not crash lol, i race the 4x4 slashes and 2wd and never break, except for normal wear and tear. Same with my erevo bl edition it only broke from launching it 30 feet in the air and destroying the spur and from hitting a piec of metal rod, and all it boroke that time was a push rod link. I would say im pleased with traxxas but racers dont respect them as much because they are made for the basher slash beginner consumer not a buggy racer with top of the line stuff.

But 1 truth to this is if you dont like it so much then why do you have so much into it? Im counting alot of ugrades that equal just about everything on it isnt stock.

I don't have anything in it any more, it just sold. Your right, nothing on it was stock lol, all the "stock" stuff broke I built it and raced it 2 times and sold it. It was a fun M/T for what it is but it cant take the abuse of a Savage, not even with all the "upgrades" that one had on it. The savage will out last a Revo anyday. The slash is a different story, this is a MT thread

So what you're telling me, Savage is better monster truck than a TMAXX. Savage is more durable, but Traxxas has a great customer service to take care of issues?

i used to think the tmaxx was the best object in the world.

however when i finaly got conned into buying a savage i made some tests.

the 3.3 engine, bought 5, 3 died after 4 gallons. one blew a rod. and well the last i tested a rev test and blew it up

the nitro star 4.6, bought 6. first lasted me 8 gallons. next 4 lasted around 5-6- and once again the last one i blew up with a rev test.

the 3.3 engine, i found a piece of %^$^, with the nitro star not far behind it.

as for chassis. i consistently broke off the front end off the tmaxx. while i was bending TVPs.

arms etc. broke the tmaxx ones like i was running over them with a 10ton roller. the savage arms... just held everything never broke one.

turnbuckles, suck on the savage, OK on the tmaxx.

tranny, savage one walks all over the tmaxx one.
however tmaxx reverse is better.

stock tyres/wheels, the maxx ones are better.

shells: no difference... destroyed them all quickly.

diffs > tmaxx stock ones are OK. the savage ones... struggle to hold together. once you get bulletproof ones though they are better then the tmaxx.

bumpers & shock towers. savage ones are WAY better.

bulkhead braces. savage... unless you go alloy on the TMAXX.

shocks.... quality of hpis ones wernt the great but they worked the best. big bores by hpi just blew tmaxx ones out the window.

plastic quality... well TRAXXAS ones suck so much @$$.
hpis just bend and bend back.

alloy quality - traxxas i found to hold.

ratings : TMAXX 6/10 - SAVAGE 4.6+ 8/10. i would personally buy a LST2
