My opinion is that the Revo 3.3 is pretty much the best MT you can buy for the money.

I'd go revo 3.3 because it's just different from the other 2. The this vs this truck debate has been going on for many years and really all 3 are good and all of um have their pro's and con's so just buy which ever one you like the best.

I enjoy watching the suspension travel on the Revo, as it literally flows over the rough terrain, like a smooth mountain stream.

To me the revo is better. Never had a t-maxx but I do have revo and savage. Revo is much easier to work on to me. But at the same time havent hardly had anything break on the savage. Both lots of fun!

i had the same question when looking at both these trucks
i ened up buying a 5309 which was awesome
a month later i got a ss savage
the revo has seen maybe 3/4 of a gallon of fuel if that and has been on a shelf ever sence the purches of the savy
my savage sees more play time for sure.....the feel of the big block cant beat it
unless ur gunna drop a red dot picco in the revo and dumb the 3.3 right away
id say get the savage

i own all three and the savage gets my vote tenfold! the instant bottom end punch you get out of the f 4.6 will put a smile on your face everytime.

T-Maxx really isnt in the same league as the other 2.  I have owned all 3 and my vote goes to Savage, but I have only recently acquired the Revo and am in the process of BB conversion so my Revo exp is limited.

they are all fun trucks but i think the revo is a little more ahead of the curve than the other two. tons of hop up parts to.

Revo 3.3 no questions!
