Default 4x4 electric monster trucks HELP!

Hi guys,
I was wondering what good 4x4 electric monster trucks are out thier. I have already owned an e-maxx and hated it, it broke every time I drove it. I really like the savage flux but I want to keep looking so I can get the best option. I have a mmm 2200 kv so I want to get one that takes it. I also bash really hard (like backflips) so it needs to be durable.
Thanks

Well, you could find yourself a used Losi ar Associated MGT. But I think you will have the most luck with a Savage, and that sonly because I myself run a Savage and I wasn't really impressed with the MGT. Losi's are good I hear, and I am pretty sure they make a conversion kit out there to make any nitro MT into electric.

What Maxx did you have? I had the older model and I have to say I was not impressed at all. Now I have the new Maxx built with almost every RPM part available and love it. With 4s and Brushless its a tank! But the E Revo stands above all Ive owned.

LST or LST2 are great monster trucks for bashing, more durable than the E-Maxx

I would have to say that of the trucks I have had the Mad Force has been the toughest by far. You should really check out the Mad Force Kruiser VE.

i too found both versions of the e-maxx very fragile to my driving style. i converted them both to almost all aluminum but when i did that, i sacrificed alot of handling. in the end, i don't think the e-maxx was a good application for me.

i found myself in the same prediciment you did after wanting to find a MT that was durable and handled well. My buddy had a savage flux. it was really durable, but was a little unpredictable in handling for my taste.

I got a brushless e-revo and haven't looked back since.

I do alot of parking lot stunt driving with big skate ramps and i found this to be an extremely durable truck for it. i regularly pull off 50-70ft jumps and land without any issues. it flies straight and handles great.

about all i did was go to heavier springs and shock oil. the rest of my truck is stock. i bought 2 more the next week and now have 3 in the stable. my only regret is that i didn't find it sooner.

savage flux all the way. unfortunately they dont sell kits so your mamba monster 2200 will be useless considering the flux system is almost exactly identical. the only thing ive heard of that breaks on the flux are the a-arms, which tend to on many vehicles. just slap on some rpms and you're good
