I think the Maxx wheels get better traction than the Savage wheels do.

Default tire traction

depends on the surface.

for hardpack the savage tires will grip better as they are softer and offer more suface area to the road.

but for soft you want the maxx tires as the more aggresive tread digs in more.

The soft Savage tires and soft foam inserts make the truck role over in hard turns.Trust me lol I've had to run and flip mine over plenty of times because of this.
