Savage X. I would not touch a Tmaxx with a 10 ft. pole. I have flashbacks of trying to keep one together....I run the Flux as far as Savages go but I will say it's rugged and fairly easy to work on. You will find that there are a lot of Savage followers. It's like a cult. I have not fallen into it yet but I think the Savage is a solid rig. I run an LST2 for nitro, that's a real good truck. Any consideration into one of those? I am definitely an LST follower. That's my 2 cents.

Savage You can hit a pole / tree / wall with a savage and it will walk away. traxxas... well bring your dust pan.

i have had both a tmaxx and a savage. get the savage. the maxx broke quite often. the savage i jumped 15ft in the air multiple times and landed everyway possible. only things that EVER broke was a shock cap that came undone which all i had to do was screw it back and another time the truck broke a few pieces after a jump.ONLY because some screws came loose and made the chassis weak(thats what i get for not checking my screws often)

This same question has been posted 1,000,000 times now.. Use the search feature instead of posting the same question over and over..

Savage = great basher, but wheelies constantly, tips over constantly when hammering the brakes or turning sharp... but still a great basher.

T- Maxx = a well rounded truck and with very little money can be just as strong of a basher as the savage if not better, and still can take corners and not tip near as much as the savage.. right out of the box.

My opinion is get a savage if all youre going to do is keep it stock and bash it. But if you want something that can be just as strong if not stronger and still be able to race or just have a little corner carving fun with, i would go with the t maxx.

I personally have driven both of these countless times and i wouldnt trade my tmaxx for a savage EVER.

Just my .02

Your bias theory again...

Ignorance is stubborn, and prejudice is hard...

It's apparent which way you lean on the argument, and that's all fine, good, and respected. (Each Traxxas sold helps my local economy) But don't start making up stuff about the Savage.

(BTW - the question by the OP was about bashing not racing. No need to buy a TMaxx and then spend extra money to make it tough. And until the TMaxx is built with twin vertical plates for a chassis, it'll never be as tough of a basher.)

I'm making up things? Another savage fan boy... here we go, and in no way am I'm bias, I had bought my t maxx and it was fun and all but I heard a lot of these same savage fan boys spewing lies about savages being the #1 truck. So naturally I started to want one and started using my friends savage x 4.6. And I was very disappointed to say the least, his savage is out of the box stock nothing modded and although the only thing that happened when I was jumping it 10ft in the air was a few lost screws it lacked in every other aspect, it wheelies constantly no matter how easy you try to take it.. and maybe you like stuff like that but it gets real annoying to say the least. If you try to do a high speed run and tap the brakes or turn it just flips ALL the time. I'm not bias and ive driven the t maxx and savage equally and I just feel the t maxx is the best bang for your buck and a very well rounded truck unlike the strictly bash savage.


*waits for savage fan boys to jump in and tell me I'm lieing* LOL

I'll start with the Savage has TERRIBLE brakes out of the box (they are notorious for this), so you saying it flips over just by barely hitting the brakes is enough for me to say that you have never owned a Savage. Nice try though.

Oh, am I am way too old to be a "fanboy" of anything if you're referring to me.

Cheers man, and enjoy your Maxx, that's the important thing anyway.

He must be the lucky one or two guys who didn't actually break stuff on there T-Maxx. There's a reason the Savage is known for being the best basher in the entire RC world. The only thing T-Maxxs are good for is hobby shops( T-Maxx= PARTS$$$$$$$$$). Also if you want something that can handle look at a MGT.

Original Poster: Have you considered a Mini MGT 3.0( Don't Let the name fool you). There super cheap, and all you have to do is put thread locker on the grub screws and your ready. Thats the only real weak part on them besides the bumper rings.

Lol I guess when I pushed the trigger and it rolled over I was imagining things right? Lol get real, and yes by making the assumption that I do not own a savage you would be correct because I wouldn't spend my hard earned money on something that is such a piece of shit at every aspect other than bashing.

Have a good day fan boys!
