NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
Greetings Everyone !

I am looking to get my first nitro monster truck and i am looking the savage x 4.6 rtr and the revo 3.3. I will bash in my backyard in the wood, bmx track and dirt. I want the ultimate performance, i want TORQUE, i fear that the little 3.3 in the wood or grass will have difficulty to start quickly and will need to rev to get his power, but it is also lighter... WITCH TRUCK IS THE STRONGEST between the savage and the revo ! i don t want a war between the two clan, i want non biased answer from honnest people that has KNOWLEDGE.

Thank you in advance i know there are here a lot of nice person that has knowledge to give me some help to buy my first nitro monster truck, i am 25 years old and i feel like a little kid waiting for cristmass! i don t want to feel i didn t make the right decision when the order will be past on tower or hobby.

Thank you !

Dave from Montreal.

By the way i saw that a LOT of person are installing RB TM523 AND OTHER BIG BLOCK ENGINE IN THE REVO 3.3, THAT IS ANOTHER POINT WHY I FEEL THAT THE REVO HASN T ENOUGH JUICE TO COMPETE AGAINST THE SAVAGE 4.6 WHAT DO YOU THINK ?!!!!

They say the savage is tougher (I have never had one) but I seen one run at my LHS and the gears sounded awful in it. Like it was whinning when it was going. Plus it was a little slow for my taste.

I am a Revo guy and I will never get rid of mine. You can buy tons of after market hop ups for it and they always have something new. Plus if you ever go to race it runs better then a savage on the track.

savage is a basher...thats what they do, they are tough and you can bash em. the revo is a basher as well but with a few mods you can take it out on the track. thats why i got a revo. so far i have just been bashing but i know im giong to be getting into racing here pretty soon. getting stuff set up for spring. i have also done the RB 523 conversion. i wanted the extra acceleration as well as top end. its a great engine. i thought about getting a savage as well after getting my revo to where i wanted it but i decided i wasnt going to. after reading some of the problems that the savages have been going through i figured i would just get a thunder tiger st-1. which is a truggy. ill probably set my revo up for bashing and just race the truggy. i wont be getting the thunder tiger till this summer. maybe something will change my mind by then...haha it happens alot.

if you want a basher there is also the t-maxx, it's excellent for bashing. plus all the hop up for it are bashing based/engineered. easier and cheaper to fix. You can get it with a 3.3 or there is the twin electric motor version (e-maxx).

The Savage isn't too fast, but it is beastly and can take a "savage" bashing!

The Revo is great all around. Fast, tough, and unique. There is no other RC that I know of that is anywhere near similar in set up.

The T-Maxx is just like the Savage, but faster. Probably not as tough, but more than tough enough.

Then there's my truck, the S-Maxx, which stands for Stadium Maxx. This truck is basically a 2.5 T-Maxx 2WD. Shorter length chassis, slightly shorter wheelbase, and slightly smaller track.

I love TRAXXAS! I'd go with any Traxxas truck.

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
I would have to vote on the Revo, i have seen 3 savages so far running at the BMX track and it seemed like a pain to deal with, was high torque but the thing kept flipping it didn't land right and they all sounded weird on the gears, on the other side i was happy riding my revo wiht some nice suspension popping wheeling, donuts, and high jumps. The revo seems easier to work with compared to a savage, but parts tend to be a little more expensive if you manage to brake them. my thoughts!

I race a revo great truck the only one that comes close is the LST2.
Savage are a waste of metal and plastic the diff's are weak .Note they are just made cheap.

Wow, some of you guys are pretty biased and thats just sad.. They are just trucks, try not act like children and say this one is better wah wah wah.... They all excell in their specialty which is bashing for the Savage and racing for Revo... Note North Star, that the S-maxx is the exact same thing as a T-maxx except for the 4WD and Reverse. The length and track is identical.... Enigmamdw, the T-maxx is the crappiest basher out of all of the popular MT's out today:eek: I own a T-maxx and Savage I would know.. Crazzyrevo, before you say that, try actually owning a Savage and you will know that the diffs are strong as hell and the truck is a machine, being biased helps no one:eek: And if you were talking about the new standard shimmed diffs on the Savage, then you are a noob and shouldnt even be giving advice on the subject...[&:][sm=thumbs_down.gif]

No, they are not the same size. I know this by experience. I got a T-Maxx body and it's too damn long. Looking at the details it's for a 3.3 T-maxx. The 2.5 is either smaller or uses the dimensions of the original .15pro T-maxx.

ide say.. savage if you only bashing, revo if you plan on bashing and occasional trips to the track.

Savage for bashing revo for racing or if you want in between the t-maxx is an OK choice or the monster GT they are super durable duuno how fast but they got balls!

True.

I have owned 2 Savage SSs, 2 Revos and a T-Maxx and I love the Savage and Revo. The Savage and Revo take a beating, where as the T-Maxx, ehh not so much. The Revo def takes the Savage on the track but my God you can take down people with a Savage at 35mph haha. I'd say go with whichever one looks more appealing, they're both awesome trucks.

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
The LST2 is the "Right" Monster Truck Dave. If you're gonna spend $500 on a Revo, throw out another $50 and just get the LST2. You will NOT be disappointed. I've had them both and the LST2 is a much better truck than the Revo. My opinion of course. ;)

MiamizFinest 12-05-2007 08:26 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
i own the savage, revo, and LST2......and many other cars......i honestly belive compareing them all the LST2 is the best choice.......


it can take a beating like a savage and with the right adjustments handle on the track with the revo and in some cases truggies ive raced my LST2 against truggies and it has never bein a one sided race.........i see it haveing the best of both worlds

JSRacer 12-05-2007 08:29 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
my experience has been with warheads and revos. the first edition warheads were a bit problematic, i'll leave it at that. but i love my revos! i put a big block in my revo because it was a left-over from a warhead. 3.3 to a 5.3! who could resist! i do currently use a .28 instead of the .32 because i think it has a bit more top end. all that said, if i ever got another [different brand] monster, i'm pretty sure i'd give an lst2 a try after all i've heard/read about them. t-maxxes seem to have weak bulkheads, savages seem to be difficult to work on. just my 2 cents. hope this helps.

jp173363 12-05-2007 08:54 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
Ok, I've ready everyones fights, and I'll give my personal opintion. First of all, what is your budget? That is going to be a big factor if you have limited cash. I have several rides, T-maxx 3.3, Revo with RB conversion, Savage, LST2, and a Monster GT. If money isn't a factor, I would personally recomend the LST2. Great truck, fast, handles very well both on and off the track. If you are on a bit more of a budget, I would go with the less expensive Monster GT. It's a solid truck, granted it won't keep up with a Savage too well, and it stays in the dust of an LST, but they take a beating, I have the first version of the Monster GT with the .21, I can jump it crash it, bash it, what ever, and still haven't broken a part on it, where as with my T-maxx, I can expect a trip to the hobby shop just about every time I drive it. If you are looking to race, Revo is the way to go. It's much lighter than an LST2 and there are tons of tuning options for on and off of the track. The Tmaxx breaks and all is a good truck after it's upgraded to some RPM a arms, and a few other simple mods, but they all cost money to do, keep that in mind when you can get something strong off the shelf like the Monster GT. As for the savage, it's not a bad truck. It's probably my least favorite truck. I'm not sure why, I just don't think it's as fun to drive. It's built pretty well, much better than other HPI models I've had which could be a reason I'm not as fond of it since I've had bad luck with HPI in the past. All that being said, my top picks would be a an LST, or Monster GT. If your on more of a budget, Go with a T-maxx or Revo, but keep in mind, traxxas=upgrades. Good Luck with which ever one you pick.

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.

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
North, I'm guessing you have the early SportMaxx series, not the Stadium Maxx because the second is identical in size to the 2.5/3.3 Maxx series.. IMO my Savage is much easier to work on than my T-maxx, unscrew 8 bolts and the truck in 3 pieces.. My T-maxx needs at least 28+ screws in order to separate the bulkheads from the chassis in order to have the truck in 3 pieces like the Savage.. I would definitely try the LST2, since it is a Super truck but I dont see myself getting one to be honest. I like the hobby but I need to concentrate on getting a steady job on the weekends but its been a pain... Being 16 in a city with 8 million people is tough in the job market lol[&:]

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
So you guys think i should go with the revo ?! you guys are talking about basher and hop up parts. but the real question is : STOCK VS STOCK : REVO 3.3 VS SAVAGE X 4.6 RTR WITCH ONE IS STRONGER, ACCELERATE QUICKER, TOP SPEED IS LESS IMPORTANT I WANT TORQUE LIKE A 5.0. PLEASE BE CLEAR , don t compare other engine , i want to know stock truck witch one gives the BEST performance PERIOD

REVO X 12-05-2007 09:35 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK

JSRacer 12-05-2007 10:03 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
Dave, I wish I could set the LST2 in front of you. It's very well built with Team Losi quality. It comes stock with a JR radio! Team Losi offers better radio systems for their RTR's than anyone, and I don't think anyone can argue that. The LST2 is very smooth to drive compared to the jittery, nervous feel of the Revo. But let us know what you end up getting, and whatever it is, you'll have some fun, guaranteed! :-)

rcnitrohead 12-05-2007 10:19 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
The savage IS tougher and, that's coming from a guy with "revo" in his name but, to me the revo is more tuneable and adjustable for different conditons but, just fpr bashing go with the savvy.

Krawlin 12-06-2007 10:40 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
Did you ever think that because you posted this in the TRAXXAS FORUMS, that the Revo is ALWAYS going to get the most votes? But as far as bashing, the Savage is hard to beat. I have one, and I can beat the snot out of it, and it just comes back for more.

Truggies are the best land based RC for fun and versatility... I can promise anyone here would have more fun offroading a Truggy over MT any day.... not to mention spend alot less money

Do you even have a truggy? And besides, truggies can be just as good and even better than a monster truck. Truggies are probably the most durable land based rc, next to 1/8 buggies. And maybe that guy does want a truggy. Sure not everyone does, but ALOT of people do. Not trying to start a flame war here, but dont diss something you probably dont have much experience with.

supertib 12-07-2007 04:24 PM

RE: NEED HELP AND ADVICE FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MONSTER TRUCK
 
before people get upset at me, please realise a Truggy is the evolution of the MT.... If it werent for T-Maxx's and Revo's there wouldnt be any Truggies..... Truggies run MT sized tires, they can go over pretty much everything a MT can............ they dont crawl well though, so slow speed curb and rock crawling is not for a Truggy... But anything over 10 MPH the Truggy has huge capabilities over a MT...under 10 MPH a MT is likely more fun........ so if you tend to do most of your bashing under 10 MPH a MT is your best bet.......... If you tend to like running faster then 10 MPH a Truggy will provide the best machine for the job..... If you like jumping, a Truggy is also a superior machine..... Guys rember I like all these machines, I am only offering what I feel is sound advice for someone looking at getting into the hobby.......... I have owned many traxxass products...from as early as 1988 with the Traxxass cat 2WD electric buggy... I am much more familiar with Traxxass and its products then you may realize..... Unlike most of you i am not basing my opinions off just owning 1 RC vehicle...... All i can say if you like the way a Revo runs you will be floored by how much better a quality Truggy runs.... for the $$$$ overall a Truggy is a much better way to enter this hobby....

Yes l own a truggy, you boring repetitive turkies, cant you read a thread for what it is mate ?
Did he ask, or does he care if truggies were an evolutionary step from MT's, no, read the topic again dude.

For the dollars, stay out of RC anything, to be frank.

Every thread you turn into a truggy VS every thing else, bring your super truggy over to my house l want to race it in my diesel hilux, after l run your truggy over and flatten it maybe you will quit it ? ...

The guys asking for MT, if you disagree with every topic posted, try using the PM service, instead of hijaking every thread.

l have broken way less parts on my REVO doing insane massive jumps than ANY other type or brand or make of RC car.

Your points about truggies l disagree with in alot of cases.

You seem to think you can never be wrong ?

oK truggies may not be boring', so to speak, but, they in my opinion have alot less to them, are not as much FUN up the bush, l wouldnt even dream of mud bashing a low to the ground get water in your electrics + air filter truggy, you cannot take the same amount of energy into the chassis in a huge jump without overstressing the plastic's on a truggy, l dont care what you recon or your experiences, l judge by my own, truggies do NOT go as well in 4 inch or more grass, l have found on sand dunes, the REVO outright pwns with its wide wheels and high ride, a truggy is no match on a steep sand dune, and before you say it, no a truggy is not made for that, here we go again yes ?

Its a MT thread mate, start a truggy thread if you like, you know l'll post, stop hijaking, lalalalalalalalala, can l call you osama ? !!! hahaha all good.

Get a REVO mate, ignore these truggy 'experts' get what 'you' wanted, if by some bezarre chance you do like the idea of a truggy, l'll be more than happy to appologise, to all of yas.
Short of what looks like a mind decided short of brand and make, l would say this guys is likely to get MT still.
l would recon he's tossing up, [at a guess] between savage and revo.
So decided what your going with yet mate ?

I was in your same position about 4 weeks ago, wondering savage or revo or t-maxx. I eliminated the t-maxx pretty fast and was left to the savage or the revo. after watching both go at it at the my lhs, i sided with the revo. the guy who had the savage kept pulling it aside to tune it to try to make it "able to keep up with the revo." Seeing as i'm more of a revo guy rather than savage isnt becasue im totally biased; I was in the same position as you are and choose the revo and am happy with my decision (wish i could have gotten both!) But if your not wanting to replace any parts at all; which If you break the arms on the revo and get the RPM arms it is unstopable) but if not, the savage will probably last longer stock, but if you just replace the arms with RPM on the revo while as you go, it will take the savage down
