I dont see an option for a .247 Tmaxx. LOL so I guess I cant make a judgement. But I would have to say the 2.5, for the simple fact that more of them have sold then all the other trucks combined xcept the savage.

You left off the Mad Force. I would say the most popular truck is the T-maxx. Just check any discussion board.

There's more votes for the Savage in this forum, but that's not not indicitive of the total numbers. I'd be surprised if anything has outsold the Maxx.

Nothing has out sold the maxx. All of the trucks above put together cept the savage havent sold as much as the maxx.

But seeings how the poll is 20 on the savage and 10 on the maxx, I better go and buy a savage!! LOL maybe when its time to rebuild my .247 and diffs heh!! But I dont see that happening for another 6-7 gallons at least LOL!!

T-maxxs have been there much longer than Savage.

i am sure there are much more T-maxx owners than savage owners.

according to the information i got from LHS, forums, and people's

talking, Savage is gettting more and more popular.

there are 2 LHS close to me, both have savage parts on sale.

one has alum shocks for 69.99. another gives 20% discount

on all savage parts.


also , the argument "t-maxx or savage".

before, only a few people supported savage, such as some

diehard, like me.

but now, the number of savage supporters has greatly increased,

the number of t-maxx supporters is almost same as before.

yeah but the main reason the tmaxx is more widely owned is because it was "out" in some form long before a savage.

give the savage............... what 3 years for the tmaxx?

and i think the ownership will be even.

but then again the 3rd generation tmaxx will be out and put a whole new paint job on things.

I dunno... the Maxx may have been around for some time but for all my 2 cents worth, there's little difference between the old Maxx and the new one. I've seen both trucks race on road and they seem to be the best of friends, never keeping more than half a body length apart... what's with 60% more power anyway??

Well to be blunt, theres no way, a stock first generation maxx can even keep up with the new wide maxx 2.5.
60% more power is going from something like .50(TRX Pro.15) or less to 1.3+(new rear exhuast engine), I mean even if the pro.15 was professionaly ported(which will out run a Os .15 hyper) it will never touch the 2.5 rear exhuast engine!!
Thats kinda like saying a hyper 8 port was neck n neck with the RB C5 or even the low class RB s7.

2.5 is the same thing as a .15 Its dumb that traxxas called it the "2.5" they should have called it the new .15re. re stands for rear exhaust

I have the new Maxx but intends to get a Savage as well. How much is an XTM 24.7? Can anyone offer a good quote from any online stores?
