Default what's more durable the e-revo or the savage flux?

I've been thinking about getting another MT. I have a twin Velineon e-revo, and really want another basher for big juming. i need something that can take a real beating.


that being said, what is more durable, the e-revo brushless edition or the savage flux?

Why not get the Savage so you now have both?

Flux by far stock vs stock.

Now I'll put MY Revo against any Savage in durability, but I also had to go full RPM arms and Traxxas Tubes to improve the durability.

NICE REVO!!! what's the carbon fiber piece on the rear? that looks wicked.

i'm on the fence about the savage. i watched a bunch of youtube videos and no doubt it's incredibly durable, but i really like the dual motor possibilities.

Bleh you don't need dual motors anymore with the stuff that's out today. If that's the only thing holding you back just get the Savage. The Savage has much more options for hopping up also, I'm so bored with my Revo because I don't have anything I can buy for it anymore outside of sway bars!

The piece is an Integy Bulkhead Brace that I dyed orange. I'm going to be getting the tranny plate also from Integy just to add a little flair and some more carbon. Yes I'm that bored I'm going to buy an Integy piece

OP, do yourself a favor and NEVER buy any integy. It's all toilet matter. Im actually embarassed for that RC up in that pic. It's a disgrace for even traxxsucks for integy to be on one of there trucks.

I don't care how long you have been signed up on this forum, your just a TRX fanboy with no clue what so ever. A fresh first poster noob in this forum forgot more that you know. I suggest you go educate yourself before you make another non-sense post son.

I never understood the Integy hate. I've had option parts from a lot of companies, including Integy, HardCoreRacing, GPM, etc... Everyone seems to complain about Integy products, yet I've never seen a real reason. I've seen people say their parts are weak, but everything I've owned from them has worked exactly how it was supposed to.

The hate mainly stems from the blatant copying of more reputable brands products. I've never had an issue with integy parts either. Again, it's just a troll who hasn't owned any of what he talks about.

That's one of the best looking Revo's I've seen. I like how you died the grey parts black. I have that carbon fiber Integy part for sale 8IGHTROCKETX3, or if anyone is else is interested in one to add it to there Revo.
It's the:

(1) INTT3138 Integy Graphite R Bulkhead Tie Bar for Revo - $7.00

Sure we do. We also like having a clean truck I'm pretty sure Casey's shots were from before it was run.

Speaking of which, Casey you don't have CVD's. You can still buy those to feed the itch
