    -What do you plan to do with the truck? Bash around? Race? A little more info will help a lot of people to be able to give a better response.:)

    T-maxx 2.5for begginners in nitro because of the EZ Start 2 system it has, it also has reverse.
    Savage 25 has a bigger engine with pull start and has no reverse but can stand up to more punishment. You can get a reverse module for it but its about $35 extra then you also need another servo for it.

    I preffer the SAVAGE 25

    i prefer the t-maxx, they have a ton of hop ups.and most stores around here carry the parts in stock, where they dont carry much for the savage,although it is a very nice truck. i just like the fact that i dont have to order all of my parts

    Savage21 I believe is discontinued besides the Savage25 would be better for rock crawling. It has a bigging engine with more torque and the tank has rear pick up. Just my thoughts

    If you check out the rc mag web sites they have done many tests and put the T-maxx against all other monster trucks in all conditions, over-all the T-maxx wins every single time. The closest continder is the AE MT. On the race track the maxx is very hard to beat. I raced one for two years and could win just about every time, I got second once when my front upper arm broke half through the race, and still finished. In my opinion, the Savage is over rated, fun to drive, just like all the others, but still too heavy to race the MAXX.
