The suspension is different. Revo has 4 smaller shocks mounted within the frame. It is more suited for a race track. The tmaxx has 8 shocks and is more suited for general bashing-jumping.

I would go with a HPI Savage X. It is a super tough truck.

the savage is nice, bigger than t-maxx or revo, and arguably better-built out of the box. if you're on a track and your friend is a good driver, you prolly won't keep up (revo is a pretty dominant track truck), but otherwise you'll be fine. i love driving savages

Out of the box, an XXL will outrun and out handle a Savage....I think their durability is about equal...

yup go for the Losi XXL.  Faster and handles better than a savage and is just as durable
