Default Savage 25 or Savage SS

I am interested in buying a Savage. I was wondering if the Savage SS is better than the Savage 25. Where can I buy a Savage the cheapest? Thanks.

The Savage 25 rtr is ready to run out of the box only batterys,fuel and run in are required. The SS is a kit version of the 25 with a different exhuast which is what makes it faster. The SS has a pull starter and the 25 is roto-start equipped. The SS stands for Super Sport and is designed for more advanced R/c members who already have radio gear as the SS does not include radio gear, it is conciderably cheaper than the RTR. If you are new to r/c, i would suggest gettin the 25 as the difference in perfomance is nothing major and can easily be brought up to the same as the SS with about £30 ($54) of mods.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your input. Do you need to buy servos for the SS? How many?

yes, you need a radio, with a standard servo, for throttle, and a high tork for steering. If you want reverse you need a 3 chanel radio, along with an extra servo.
