i have a tmaxx 3.3 its a good truck but the suspension that comes on it sucks bad i would go with a savage if your looking to do some hardcore jumps and whatnot or a warhead both are alot alike but its hard to get the warheads engine to run right my dad and best friend and his dad all have one

Truggys can't jump. Don't get a truggy. Buggys are okay, but on concrete, not so much. I would get and SS as well, and I am!This is like the most widely used smiley, isn't it.

jato wouldnt hold up anyway. truggy....wel it would die. lst2(i have one) too heavy for jumping repeatadly. out of my lst and my savage the savage takes a beating and keeps on going. my lst which is heavily hopped up cant take as much.

form what i see a havoc stunt truck is the same as my s-maxx 3.3 but a little more motor. i would really recommend a revo, more suspenion travel. if i had to pick for a savage, a jato, or revo.... i would take the revo.

The revo though, is know to be weaker than the Savage, and with RPM Savage arms, you most likely wont break those.

there was a review of the havock stunt truck in rc car action magazine, he said that it was a awesome truck. He actually tested it at a skate park and it was awesome he saiod. So i would say that it would be good.
