What is your favorite monster truck? I want a truck that can be upgraded a lot, is reliable, and can be fixed easily.

Savage RTR .25 is a good choice. I have had mine for 4 months and only busted a fuel tank messing around with it. Other than a new throttle setup to ensure the throttle opens up 100%, its completely stock and a blast to drive.

I voted xtm mammoth. There are 4 reviews on it and all positive. It does 50mph and it handles well and qiute durable. The only downfall is thatt he shocktower bends rather easy. It takes a pretty hard hit to do that though. But you cant beat the on-sale price for 369.99$. Theres some hop-ups but not too many yet. All replacement parts are avalible at www.hobbypeople.net Its a great truck with a high hp (2.6) reliable engine! Pl,us xtm has great customer support

Cen Fun Factor MT2. It matches what you are looking for except for the upgrades. There are some available, but not a lot. It doesn't really need much upgrading though.

you need a gt-savformamt 2...

That's a hybrid MGT, T-Maxx, Savage, Mad Force, Mammoth and MT2. That's what I would get if I were you.

I've been using Corvette bodies on MT since I first purchased my T-Maxx (just look in my personal gallery) or visit my website. That Savage could also use some lights (check out my MMT in my personal gallery. I also have lights on my Mini-T and did have them on my T-Maxx).

However, if you just want something big and powerful, get an FG 1:6 Monster Truck. For FG pictures, use the "Search" button--either this forum or the Large Scale Forum. Then again, it seems like hardly anyone ever uses the search button but I guess that is one reason there are so many posts and threads on the same topic. It helps expand the universe.

Edit: Attached is another photograph of my T-Maxx before I installed the Sirio 3.0.
