Muggifying, is putting muggy shock towers and shocks(lower, shorter,lighter) on the LST2 and then flipping the rear arms to put shocks on rear and changing toe in. Better handling and more steering than you know what to do with.

Nah, the MGT 8.0 is larger than the Savage 4.6.

The MGT's wheelbase is about an inch shorter than the Sav XL but overall, they're...eh... pretty close to the same size.

ive heard of alota problems with the MGT so id eliminate that cant argue about the savage there good MTs and if you buy a LST or a savy you wont need to worry about a lhs cause you wont need parts that often but if you buy a traxxas you can get parts anywhere just might get sick of going to the hobby shop and buying parts and spending more time working on it than driving it but my vote still goes with a losi and for a RTR you cant beat the DX3S spektrum it comes with

my friend has had a savage xl for the past 6 months or so still using the stock motor. I just picked up a MGT 8.0 a few days ago. First one I bought the trans gears tore up before break in so I bought a Revo...then I decided to try the MGT again.

Granted my friend doesn't have the best tune on his savage but the mgt SPANKS him as far as speed goes. You have to be careful on turning though because it tends to flip an awful lot.

Only thing I've broken on this MGT is the body mount off of the shock tower because I hit a wall going about 20 mph. Definately a nice truck

The Savage is a nice truck though but I like my MGT

The MGT 4.6 is nice, the shock towers are fairly fragile for some reason, everything else is solid though, especially the frame.
