    rpm is a brand. they make strong plastic parts. do you want to race or bash? the savage is a better basher out of the box

    i was wondering about speed how fast does a savage go? out of the box? im getting a ready to run and does it go in reverse? its a strange question but i seen some trucks that do and dont and i dunno if the savage does or not.

    the savage doesnt have reverse but you can buy reverse. i think they both are supposed to go 40mph.

    Woahh im gonna blow the whistle on that one! Tmaxx is not hands down the best. I race against tmaxx at the track and the maxxs are rarely in the mains. why because they have broken down in the qualifiers. Savages are much tougher and if you set them up for racing will beat a tmaxx and drive over its broken peices. (can you tell I own savages) but seriously they are two different kinds of trucks. with totally different setups. the savage can be setup to race very easily and will always be stronger than the maxx.

    Oh yeah and to add, the guy in that video is the biggest idiot i have ever seen and he should play with lego instead. but he would probaly try to stand on his lego car and break it and get angry about how stupid he is and burn it. what a fool.
