Default Mammoth or TNX

I have the madforce and its pretty sweet, but i want something better that doesnt break all the time when im driving it. But anyways its fun but i wanan get something more durable and better for jumping like the mammoth or tnx. Does the mammoth have slow acceleration?

I might get myself a TNX instead of putting more money into my savage. But im not sure, i would like to hear some more comments on the TNX before i buy it. But not many people have TNX's yet.

Anyone have a TNX and a Savage? I would like to here how the TNX holds up durability wise to a Savage, If its about as durable im sold.

I owned 2 savages both were great mt's but required lots of mod to them to make them work like they were suppose too.The tnx out of box is faster than a stock savage 25..The sterring servo is better than the stock savage steering servo..The thing that the tnx needs the most out of the box are new shocks...The stock shocks are a real joke...The tnx is durable...I slammed mine into the ground more than once without breaking anything...Just the last time i drove it i did a big jump and it was very windy and a gust of wind cought into my truck and it slammed real hard against a tree..I broke the fuel tank no biggie..And with the savage i was alwasy snaping dog bones or stripping spurs...I haven't had any problems like thta with the tnx..But if you buy o0ne buy some new aluminum shocks for it and set it right and u will be amazed...The stock engine is super user friendly and holds a tune like no other...It has loads of power i really like mine...I will do a review of the tnx maybe in a week or so...

Yea that would be awsome if you could do a review, noones done a review on the TNX yet. And is the TNX close in durability with the savage or what? And if your stripping spur gears thats because you aren't setting them right, My spur gears last me atleast a gallon.

The answer is no...And even if you installed a .25 it wouldn't go any faster cause the stock .18 engine revs higher than a .25...The only thing a .25 would do is add more torque...The stock .18 engine does the job well and has tons of power.I don't see why anyone would want to replace the stock engine its an awsome engine...
