SAVAGE or RPI MT2 or anything you think is worth buying???

I have a Traxxas T-Maxx already but it is in bad shape, EZ start cogs all mushed up (new set on order), plus ive lost all the screws that hold the rear end together from when i took it apart. I want to get a new RC car that works well on road and off, i am interested in Savages the most, especially the 25, (have you heard about the new 3 speed tranny, sounds cool) and also the RPI MT2. Which is the best value for money in your opinions and also any other cars that you recommend at or around $750. Also where can i get spare screws etc. for my T-Maxx????
Cheers

for 750 i would pimp a buggy! You would have WAY more fun with a buggy than a MT2 and it will handle much better than a savage. Although the savage could problaby take the same amount of beating.

Due to my smaller budget I would presonally get a Hyper 7 with all the upgrades. It is not the best buggy out there but then again unless you plan to race world class events you don't need the best of the best.

The hyper 7 can be picked up for anywhere between 400 and 550 depending on the upgrade package you buy with it. Those were the prices when I last looked into them which was about 4 months ago.

Savage for sure. You can get a lot of air with those things.
