Default Which one.....TerraCrusher....T-Maxx....Savage .21??????

I'm looking at getting one of these trucks.....but I want to find out which one is the best all around truck.

I'm going to be "bashing" around my yard, sand pits, and anything else that I can find.

I want the most durable, most dependable, and fastest one.

Any help, hints, or tips would be great.

Thanks,

Steve

The T-Maxx DEFINITELY has the most upgrades availible and the most parts support from your LHS.

If you want the ultimate Backyard basher, check out the XTM X-Factor! now that there is a "REAL" monster truck!

I've seen the videos of the xtm X-Factor truck and it seems slow and doesn't seem to jump that well.
If i were to buy a truck it would be a close call between the Maxx and the savage....I would probably go for the savage.

My friend bought a Xfactor.. IT goes about 40.. not too slow. and it seemed like it would be unstable and such. it jumps wells. has the most suspension travel availible. most realistic suspension around and in those vids you watch. where they the "official" vids from XTM? if so. that was a first time RC'er drive that didn't know anything and it wasn't broken in all the way
