    it depends on what you want to do with it. the savage is more durable and i havnt broken anything yet. the t-maxx has some more speed though and i would recamend it if you were planning on racing

    the savage woul be the better way the tmaxx only has a engine around 1 and a half horse power I belive while the save .21 has like 2.3 HP and the savage .25 has around 2.6 HP. I dont know if this is correct but I do know this THE SAVAGE HAS A BIGGER MOTOR IN IT which equals more torque and I would think speed also

    t maxx is better cost less and if u r compareing a big block to a small the t maxx is still faster now we can make it fair by putting a .21 conversion on hte maxx so thats a big block by big block so the t maxx is deff. better the savage is tuffer and a t maxx bulk head desine is crap they break easy but in a drag a t maxx will win and in track raceing a t maxx will deff. win and a savage will jump higher and the t maxx will jump farther so hpi and traxxas r really good comp. but on the 2 most pop. truck (until revo) the t maxx is the best but the probs with the t maxx the revo has fixed so traxxas will always be the best i think any way

    they are both pretty much the same with upgrades and you can find anything in aluminum.

    no a t maxx has the most upgrades u can do anything with a t maxx not a savage

    but the savage still has a #@$% load of upgrades and you can get all the aluminum. the savage is more bang for the buck because you can change the motor without getting a conversion kit and its already a big block. you wouldnt be able to put the truckzilla .46 motor on it stock though. but there are a lot of engines that will just drop in

    well if u r compareing durability of the t maxx and savage the savage wins but which is more fun to deal with is the t maxx monster u can do more with the t maxx the a savage u can get all aluminem on both but when the savage is better than a t maxx i would love to know tell me 1 thing u can do with a savage and not a t maxx u cant get 4 wheel steering,small block compatible and big block,dule motor kit,3 speed tranny,and all the other things like make it a snow mobile a snow shoveler and stuff like that but i have never had a savage but a t maxx i have so if u can do these things with a savage lmk but i dident know

    OK with a savage you can make it totaly alumium, just like a Tmaxx. I have seen you can make the Savage LONGER, and I think you can do that with a tmaxx also but I have only really seen it being doen wtih a .21 conversion kit. Ive really only seen a Tmaxx go and not much of a Savage but I belive that the Tmaxx is more of a racing kind of truck while the Savage will always be more durable then a tmaxx and it will, at least this is what I think, also be pretty good in the compatition part (HPI vs TRAXXAS)

    tmaxx has way better handling, and as far as the engines the trx 2.5 was designed by some of the best engineers in the nitro engines industry. not just that but there is alot more to motors than power and torque the small block weighs less, and also has way highr rpm. also the tmaxx engine cant be run in normal .15 engine races anyway because it is a modified engine, and if you havent heared the tmaxx woops @ s s against savages and many other big block trucks all the time at the track because that is what they have to race against. if u just convert to a big block and dont get higher gearing you are just gettin better acceleration because u r loosing rpm and top speed if u dont. There arent any big blocks with higher rpm's than this engine.

    ok dont say the savage can't do #@$% until you check this site out.

    they make snow kits for these things. ive seen them on ebay. ive seen all that stuff done on a savage. its mostly custome but custome is a lot more fun then just buying a kit. its not that hard to put a kit together

    can a savage go as fast as a tmaxx potentially? im looking at the 2.5 hp savage how fast does it go ? and a tmax breaks easily? i9m looking for a balance between speed and power and durability and the fun has to factor in there too somewheres
  17. mr_chris04

    mr_chris04 Member

    and would alluminum make the tmax as tough as the savage
    ?
    makes sense

    no the t maxx is better if u get all rpm parts it is lighter and there is a warrenty on rpm parts and alluminem bends and then u r stuck with broken expensive parts and the maxx is faster and the savage tuffer they r about the same trucks really better in what u like to go it is all oppion
