I would say get the Savage (cause it is awesome) but since you already have a big block bashin truck then I would go with the Revo if you are set on a MT.
For the money I would go with the XTM XLB though. Looks like a blast!

I just got the savage 25 and I gotta tell ya that it's an awesome truck. It's sturdy and handles well with plenty of power. I just broke it in and took it for a spin in a parking lot for about an hour. I can't wait until this weekend for I am going to tear up a construction site near my home. Lots of rough terrain!!! Oh joy!! P.s. I just installed a reverse module too and I am happy that I finally got a nitro that does reverse. No more running over to the car when it gets stuck on something. Now I just pop it in reverse and just go crazy. LMAO

i have a savage its great and an lst. go to the savage thread it mentions hopups and things to replace to get better performance. you mentioned that it would be nice to have a reversing truck and i am not sure if you know this but the lst has reverse. if you do the steering mod that is mentioned in the thread you won't need reverse. make sure you check the back plate on the s25 if that is the motor you have mine came loose and the spring got jammed inside the motor and ruined it.

they all look good, they all seem to perform well. even though i dont have a revo, lst, savage, etc, whatever works for your wallet would be good..

Default Revo

I would go with a revo. I got one for my first MT and I love it. It can be just as strong as the savage w/ some upgrades like titanium things. Since my on road doesnt do off road to well.

Thumbs up Savage 4.6

If you are looking for a great strong fast truck the new Savage 4.6 is awsome. It comes with alot of the hopups and the new motor is real quick. Its great to race or to chase the cat in the hood.

I frequently chase down small dogs with mine - dogs are more fun because they can't climb!!!

Get a Revo if you want to keep buying replacement parts, or a Savage if you want to stay on the track.

Default Get A Revo

I have had a Revo for the past 4 months now and have been bashing and I raced once. It only broke 2x where I REALLY let it go due to my own stupidity, other than that the truck is great. IF YOU tend to "BEAT YOUR TRUCK" with HIGH JUMPS and other stupid stunts of course your are going to break something. NOTHING IS INDESTRUCTABLE. Performance-wise it is fast out of the box.
