There is a size difference between the two, so i would hope the BB would win.

my neighbor has a savage to and he always looses to me in races on and off road. Of course i win in bashing to. (his truck breaks everytime we go out and mine never does) This is my tornado bb and exceed i put together with eachother (i like the exceeds colors and bbs upgrades so i have 2 sets of everything when stuff breaks to) Today in WI the wind chill was -45 F. It got a little warmer so i decided to try the new tires out and they work great. My car flies through the snow now

mercedes is much better than hyundai too but the mercedes cost a few dollars more but that doesnt make the hyundai a bad car, just more cost effective.

they are not even in the same class, one is a 1/10 buggy, the other is a 1/8 monster truck but it doesnt change the fact that the tornado bb beat the savage in a race
