RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
l would say revo, period.
lve owned savages for years, power and punch ,control and handling all go to the revo.
The biggest difference is the PRICE.
The revo is dearer, ever wondered why ?
My revo out performs the savage in every area except bottom end mud crawling,other than that, revo, every area, especially jumps, you mentioned a bmx track, thats what we do, savage has no control out of jumps like the revo, the revo was born with wings l recon, they just ripped em off !
Revo is faster as a stock truck.
Savage has a bigger motor.
Revo 3.3, savage 4.6.
Revo is faster overall, and revo does ownage wheelies with very little effort, short of a good tune.
Savage does easy wheelies too, but its geared lower and has a bigger engine.You do the maths on that rubbish.....
My veiw is there both pretty much of a muchness for servicing and cleaning, no major plusses or negatives for either.
Savage probably has a slightly tougher drive line set up, though l havent busted either trucks drive line to say for sure, sper gears are all the sameish, revo has a fiddly gear box, tough enough though, revo has an 'own my arse' easy starter system, [ yea l love it 15 years of pull starts does that ! ] savage is easier to silicone seal for mud and water bashing, l broke my lower front arms of my savage in a crash, lve hit the same damn post in the revo, slightly slower and it didnt bust, yea l was lucky, the savage probably has a stronger chassis, but, that makes the overall truck stiffer, in big bmx track jumps, where flex is absolutely needed in the chassis, the revo pwns, the difference lve found is plastic parts bust on my savage on high/heavy impact landings, where as the revo, and its suspension tends to have enough movement and chassis flex to roll on and on, absorbers it all n at !
Its a matter of opinion whats really better for what, all you can do is be the judge yourself, get one of each, you wont be dissapointed, LOL, hahaha, wanna buy mine ? LOL not !
l have to much fun with em both, and me crappy zircon, the zircon is bigger than the savage and the revo, yet both the revo and savage, outright own it, zircon has a big block !
l like the revo better as a basher, pure control is awsome with it, l like the savage for MUD, its less risk of electrical stuff up, ie $, mud bashing is pretty fiddly but, major cleaning after major lubing etc, stick to the dry, and get a revo.
