Well i heard if you paint a jato red, it only adds 10hp.
Seriously i think the genesis has a huge engine for being stock. But the power to weight ratio is not as good as a revo 3.3. I saw one of those run today and it had loads of power, way better than the 2.5. Know what im sayin,

Uhhhh.......The XTM Mammoth, but what do you need speed for. I know I just realized this also, I was all about speed at first, but I realized its all about the torque. Plus you can upgrade the engine later, so dont worry about speed.

For the best power, I think I will have to go with the LST or the Cen Nemesis.

nemesis has the most power, but the most weight to match.

LST was probably the best power to weight ratio.

but now I would fathom to guess the revo 3.3 has that crown.

but as was said, more power is just ~5gallons of fuel away at best.

I beleive the revo 3.3 is the fastest truck as well. they claim 45+mph, while the revo 2.5 and lst were tied around 40 previously.

of course gearing is the big thing. I could put +6 gears on the LST and probably see it into the 60's. but it would take way too long to get there without an aftermarket engine.

45mph isnt really that impressive though for the price of the truck. A stock CEN magnum claims to do 50 mph. I doubt it but i know my CEN mt2 that claimed 45 did about 42 - 43 stock.

And Baur's got it right on the gearing.

price isnt really a factor in top speed because its easier to make smaller trucks go faster, less rolling resistance/wind resistance. weight only factors into the friction with the road, but a small truck can get by with alot less power to get more speed.

case in point, the onroad cars with the same engine manage 60mph out of the box. all in the tires.

also the smaller trucks tend to have harder tires, bad for grip, good for resistance.

its cheaper to give a truck speed than to give it handling. to give it both... $$$$

The NT-16 has weak low end, but a good RPM range and winds out very nicely. It's low end though is pretty bad and it takes a while to wind out. Not sure if it does 43 or not.

the revo 3.3 i saw, had to of been going 45-50, it was way faster than my friends t-maxx, I think it has the best power to wieght ratio, There are exceptions, revo's with big blocks, but those just get out of control, I think the lst is the absolute best all around truck. IMO

I strapped my GPS to it and took it for a rip shortly after i got it and it was broken in and tuned up good and it really did hit 43 with the body off.
I should test it again now that i have an os .18 in it, although i should figure out my gearing because it has much lower gearing and slightly larger tires than stock now.

the fastest truck to 40 mph is the LST2.....even including the REVO 3.3...............RCX did a full test on the TMaxx 3.3 and its numbers were slightly behind the LST2 for acceleration, though the TMaxx did hit a few MPH extra after a long wind out.........but from point A to point B the LST2 is apparently the fastest...

The fastest one is whatever I toss out my window while going down I-40 between Memphis and Nashville.

the question was about monster trucks, so half the trucks listed so far dont even count. they are little... even to a revo. are you asking about stock or fully modded?

A guy I know built a dragster RC with the intent on breaking a worlds record. So far, he has it up to about 81. The exact number escapes me, but that sounds right. Point being, an MT is not a dragster and how fast it gets to 35 mph is far more important that top speed. You'll only get top speed on pavement anyway, so why would it matter?
Get whichever MT you like best, and that your LHS carries parts for. If its not fast enough for your tastes, upgrade it. Almost all of us upgrade at some point anyway. No matter which one you choose, the engine is only going to last between 3 and 10 gallons anyway. If you upgrade before the stock engine is toast, then you will have a backup mill.
