    Battleship Aurora

    if i had the money, i would go with the genesis. it has a 3 speed trany, a huge 5 hp engine. 7.5" tires,4 disc brakes,and is huge.the chasis is set up alot like the savage which is easy to work on too.

    ok definatly dont get the genisis. i prefer the savage over it now.just got the new rcca today and had the genisis in it. it only tops out at 36mph with that big motor. the aftermarket is much better for savvy.but they rated the truck good still think the savvy is better and cheaper price. think the gen was $500. they say its good for ever nitro monster fan.
