I can only break my revo on the track. When I go out bashing the thing holds together like glue... Dunno maybe its just me..

PS I broke the body mount at the track on Sunday. On Saturday I spent quite a few hours in the air off of jumps and a few hours doing cartwheels on the grass. never broke a thing.......

Get a revo, they can take the greatest beating, i jumped mine off of my 15 foot roof, only cracked the front bumper, its not even in danger of breaking either.

The revo is definitely stronger out of the box . The 2.5 R is also a great motor . I put one in my sons T-maxx

Go with the Revo, the Maxx is light years behind it. I had 2 T-maxxes and I loved them but I spent my fair share of money on repairs. I run my Revo twice as hard because I have confidence that it will will not break when I wipe out. I have only replaced a one way bearing in the past 7 months. The maxx is old engineering I wouldnt spend the cash on it now. The other monster trucks are far more advanced. The Revo is simply an incredible truck. Its a basher/ racer!!!!

great choice, Revo is a very solid truck, EXTREMELY hard to break.
Dont get me wrong though.. maxx's were good trucks..

I had a maxx and it took a good beating. was quite pron to breakage though, but cheap to fix too. i got a revo now and haven't broke anything yet..only been 2 months though give me time..
handling isn't even comparable though even for a basher. REVO will run circles around a stock maxx
