    IS the Savage .25 better than the Savage SS? Oh and what does RTR mean?

    i think the ss is better and rtr means that it is Reary To Run. it comes with everything except fuel and batterys and it is completly built. u have to build the ss and it doesnt come with the electronics but it includes the nitro star s-25 engine

    rtr basically means ready to rebiuld! get the ss kit, you'll know how to fix your truck when it breaks!

    Ya, I'd agree with osbornel on this one. I always like to get a non-RTR truck. After you get done building it, you will know exactly what you need to do when it breaks and you will know how to tweak it for maximum performance. My first car was an RTR and I ended up taking it all apart and rebuilding it just so I could find out how everything went together.

    ya i got my first car in january of this year. it was an rtr trx(traxxas) bandit and the first thing i did was take it apart. i like building them just as much as racing. i got that and now i just buil cars piece by piece without the manual and i have no problems but thats not cause i took a bandit apart. that is the simplest car to build

    I have owned countless rustlers and badits like monsterrcbuilder04 was saying there alot easier to fix if you put them togather. I can probably build a rustler without directions if I had a pile of bolts nuts and pieces.

    Ya, after you rip your car/truck down you know where everything is and where everything will be if it needs to be fixed. At least once a month I rip down my trucks just to re-familiarize (is that a word??) myself with my beloved trucks.
