Default Which truck has the most suspension travel

I am looking at purchasing a truck with the most suspension travel offered. Can anyone rate the following trucks:
E-Maxx
E-Revo
E-Savage
Others?
I would like the most travel offered, for big jumps.

it matters you can set the suspension on the e-maxx just as high as the esavage?? so i would have to say matters how you set it up. but the travel doesnt always matter. harder springs and type of shocks will always make a difference??

If you are looking for an electric, The Savage Flux.

If not.. any Savage series will do. The E-savage, however, is totally different and has many weak points.

The best electric budget basher would probably be the E-maxx tho.

The most travel to me does matter because then I have more travel to work with... so when jumping 30ft it wont bottom as easy(yes still bottoms). Ive converted 3 diffrent 1/8th scale buggies and truggys, currently a 8T all converted to electric. They all just dont have as much travel, and after slaming into the ground with stiff shocks and such, like to bounce back up a foot or so. Ive acually had 2 diffrent E-maxx that were brushless, before it was popular. They were good for travel, I did blow diffs out with the power on landings at times. But seemed to do what I wanted after much upgrading(great truck). So this time I was thinking of trying another truck if it had the ability to have longer travel than an emaxx. Really gas or electric trucks doesnt matter I can convert it to electric.
I am not sure how much travel the losi lst has
Ive looked at savages, they look stout(gas) not sure on the electric.

The revo is catching my eyes, does it have more or as much travel as the E-maxx?

So far what is said the Savage has as much travel as the E-maxx
