    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    How's your budget? BTW, what prices do you have for the XL and the XXL?

    From those two trucks, the XXL is superior in most regards IMO.

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    well i saw xl around 500 and xxl around 670, and i already has all the accessories for nitro. my budget is around $800, i prefer not to upgrade so many part just in order to bash.

    when you said xxl is better could you give me some example and why is better compare to XL. from what i heard XL is known for bashing, don't know how it handle though. I don't like when i'm bashing, it flip over all the time.

    Ha ha... "Don't want to flip over all the time..."


    I already answered this in the thread "Why shouldn't I get a Savage X?".. Check it out - that's my opinion.. (LST2 and XXL are very similar..)

    With the XXL btw you get a much better radio and engine right off the bat, so that alone makes the initial price difference worth it.. And you really don't need to upgrade anything(2 or 2 bits - you can find about it by reading around the Losi MT forums..)

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    not really looking for cheap one, but a good one with OK handle, and durable. don't really worry about radio that came with XXL, since i can upgrade the XL radio if the truck is good. But i hate upgrade the truck itself and fixing it everytime after few bash(too lazy i guess). So i'm really looking for The One that is bash ready out of box.

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    I just got a XXL and it is fantastic. After break in I have been jumping and having fun with nothing but cleaning the aircleaner for maintenance. I have not had a Savage before but I did do alot of reading and most recomended the XXL.

    This topic made up my mind. many others with much more experience than me all said XXL..

    Also I got mine for $599.00 from my LHS. They matched the online prices.

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    Yea, the XXL is just a stretched LST2, which is just an awesome truck. There is a reason you dont see savages racing lst2's. The handling of the lst2 over the savage is almost not fair.... The XXL is great for bashing, I have yet to break anything on mine. (other than the sp/pull start) I dont do anything extreme, the most air I get is about 8-10 feet up, with 3-6 being more typical. Just construction type areas and parks. The tires on the xxl will also outlast the savage tires by a lot if you do any on-road driving.

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    I have a Savage converted to an XL, I also have a Losi Aftershock which is much like the LST but with a forward only 2sp tranny. The Savage is a nice rig and tough but honestly I prefer driving the Aftershock because it handles ten times better than the Savage. I like the XXL platform because it's more like a truggy and less like a monster truck compared to the Savage chassis. The XXL isn't cheap but it comes with a decent TX, you can sell it for $200 if you don't need it and be into an awesome truck for reasonable money. A guy at my LHS was running an XXL and it ripped, I would recommend the XXL over the Savage because of the handling, radio, and especially the engine.

    ditto on the handling....My brother inlaws Savage accelerates harder than my Aftershock, but my truck is all over him once I hit second. hen we get to a corner and I'm behind i jst tap the brakes and turn inside him....I drove his truck for a bit one evening and was surprised at how bad it pushed....as in "like a dump truck"....I have read where Savages can be made to handle reasonably well...

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    My XL is 1 tough mutha....
    6+ gallons on the stock Terra Pin tires.
    Still better than 1/2 tread.
    And yes I drive on the pavement alot.

    Here's a pic of it in action.
    I broke the already torn, zip tied, silicone muffler coupler on landing causing an instant lean condition and bogging due to loss of fuel pressure, but rode a wheelie away and continued to drive around just to show she was all good.



    Might as well see the vid that pic is from.
    Seeing is believing.

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    I think the savage is about as good as it gets for bashing in stock form. They are extremely tough IMO.

    However, they dont handle the greatest. My MGT handles a lot better than my savage, and the brakes are much better too. I honestly like both trucks a lot. Just depends on what im doing as to which one i would rather run.

    RE: savage xl vs losi xxl

    Agreed with the last 3 posters... Personally, I love how my "dump truck" handles and its all about the driver, I rarely flip my truck over going through full speed powerslides, sure its not effortless but some throttle and steering control are all it takes. The XXL is probably superior in handling and has a nice engine and all, its a good package... But I'll still love driving my Savage!

    I did break some stuff on that run, but I had it coming after I tore up a body and had no engine cage on..

    Haha yep, and I actually have one Integy item on my truck, and it works pretty well- cept it was badly designed and gives the rear wheels positive camber .. At least it hasn't bent like the typical Integy crap

    My integy clutch shoes and flywheel have been great so far. Couldnt beat the price either! Im not much on aluminum suspension parts anyways, but as far as clutch shoes go, I have been happy with my integy shoes.

    Here is my MGT. If you are thinking about something other than a savage, definately give the MGT a look.

    If you go to youtube you'll find tons of videos of both. Personally, I'd think you'd be happy with either. I'm still waiting to see if they make a brushless version with their 1/8 brushless system.
