    If you plan on dumping a bunch of money into a truck for reverse, stick with the tmaxx you get that plus a 2 speed trans. one of thr top rated racing engines, great traxxas support team, parts out the azz, tons of upgrades, and the ability to leap tall buildings if the need should arise.

    it made me like it even more. the savages get way more air then the maxx. it doesnt help that the maxx driver isnt that great compared to the others.

    its cool man. i think its awsome seeing them jump the shed. i watched one when they had a big jump and a truck did like 3 backflips but i thi9nk it was a stadium. i thought the savy did good on the bmx track but they had a lot of experience.

    Ok if you don't mind spending money get the t-maxx....and try living next to a hobby store because you'll be there alot...my buddy has a t-maxx and that thing breaks all the time....the savage is the better truck...its slower than the t-maxx but it durablity makes up for it....also it has a two speed and a three shoe clutch.....i have had my savage for a while and i haven't put one penny in it yet....well no i lie, i did buy a fuel filter and a failsafe......the savage is 389.99 and the t-maxx is about 329.99 but to make the t-maxx as durable as the savage you'll probably spend another 200 or 300 dollars overall....i know a number of t-maxx owners that have sold there t-maxx just to buy a savage....and they tell me it was the best thing they have ever done.....speed isn't everything if you can't even play with it for more than a run or two before something breaks....

    310 sounds like your talking about a sportmaxx t-maxx has 2 speed ,rev. but not for 329. cheapest Ive ever seen it has been 369 with a coupon fro tower. I've got 2 of them . Anyway I think I no what your saying, yea they do break and unless you no what your doing the 2.5 can be a little difficult to tune.

    well if you are good then you wont be picking it up as much.the savage would be a better crawler. heres a good durability test. buy them both and drop them off your roof and see which ine has less damage. the reverse modual is only like $30-$40. thats not a lot and it just pops into the tranny instead of changeing all the gears
