Default mammy st or savage ss for bashin'

Hey,
Sorry for another comparison thread, but heare goes:
I was looking at both trucks and want a basher. I like the mammy because of the engine, price, and ive heard it is durable. I like the savage because it has loads of hop-ups, is big, and everyone speaks highly of it's durability. Duribility is an important factor for me. What would you chose for bashin'?


Thanks
Ethan

most of the mammoth hop-ups are pretty pricey xtm makes some aluminum hop-ups and such which are listed on the hobby people site. I think that if you want durability you should probably go with the savage, it's durability is legendary. Plus the mammoth st is more of a race truck so for bashing the savage wopuld probably be a better choice.

I own a Mammoth ST and would have to say for hardcore bashing go with the Savage. The ST still uses the regular Mammoth arms and Bigair's (http://www.bigairproducts.com/) aluminum ones will set you back 100.00+ but they will not break. If you are willing to buy the arms I would say go for the ST.
Hobby people sells all of the hop ups that you will ever need.

I don't think a stock mammoth will out bash a stock savage. Don't get me wrong I have a mammoth and I love it and with hop-ups I think it could bash with the best of them but stock I think a savage is a better basher.

I slid into a wall with my ST at a low speed and broke my arms.
I really don't think any body is going to believe the 2-story remark without a video to prove it.

I really like my ST but it is now where near as tough as the Savage out of the box. Aluminum arms and maybe a center diff and there isn't a Savage that could keep up. But for out of the box the Savage is the better choice.
