I've got an MGT, and it handles awesome on a track. I've been lucky enough to drive the GS on the track. I've gotta say, nothing handles like that GS truck. If you are looking for a racing machine, you wont find a better truck than the GS.

No way, the GS is light years ahead of the Mammoth on the track. If you wanna race get the GS.

I would say 1st. GS 2nd Mammoth 3rd MGT. That would be for track purposes. The GS is nothing but a buggy with monster truck tires. So im guessing that would be the best. The Mammoth handles awesome because of the low center of gravity and long wheelbase. And the MGT would propable be good in the hands of a real good driver.

Don't be so ignorant. A GS is a real race truck derived from 1/8 buggy.

The Mammoth is also derived from an 1/8th scale buggy. XTM made the chassis and the arms longer for the Mammoth. The gearing in the GS is much better for the track and it just handles better than the Mammoth. You can still bash the heck out of the GS though.
