    Believe it or not Traxxas is calling the S-Maxx the race truck . And ya the Losi is pricey @ 600. Sure the Revo is a racer also. Both sound like they would be good trucks to have, Dream, Dream .

    you no alot of people bash the sport maxx but to be honest I really think that they are a good MT. When my front dif went out on one of my TMaxx I just ran it w/the rear dif and man I had one heck of a time keeping that front wheel down in other words all that power was going to the rear dif.
