Quit thinking about either cars... get the dirt demon with a .26 engine... you deserve more power with your investment

Buy both trucks!! Put them both on layaway, and pay them off the same day. Well that is if your buying from a local hobby shop!!

But if you cant wait, just buy a savage, that way I will have another person to argue with J/K LOL!!

Just make your own choice, what you think looks and sounds better!! But most of all have a blast when you get one!!

After having both for a while, they both have there issues. Right now the five tmax's in our group have all come down with the Tmax Flu....ie.....engine failure. They all have about 3 gallons of fuel in them and Traxxas said its a rebuild issue. Other than that, they have been rock solid. But, other than normal wear, they have been aok.

The savage's in our group, have only a little over a gallon each in them, and are still great, without any issues engine wise at this time. However, the a-arms have been braking like they are free.


At this point I kinda like the savage better. But after we get past the few gallon fuel point, I'll let you know. I would have thought the Tmax would have lasted a bit longer than that, our trx15's were bullet proof. The new race engine seems to not last as long!

but thats just my opinion.

That's the perfect excuse to drop in a Sirio .18!

I have 2 TMaxx 2.5's - My wifes loves them as they are hers. I have to fix them all the time. I would not recommend them at all unless you plan on sinking money into it to make it more durable....

Go for the Savage... Or better yet - get a 1/8 scale buggy.....
