For a new guy starting out, I think the Revo is the best choice. Lots of support, easy starting, revo is strong and fast, good for both bashing and racing......very good for a noob. You don't need the flextech arms, you can get a good set of RPM arms and be setup for the life of the truck, free replacement one breaks! Engines can be swaped out later for a medium block or BB if you want to go that route, but the stock engine will be fine until you learn to tune and maintain a nitro engine.
The Savage is a tough truck that is also a good basher and in some hands it can be an effective racer. I love the savage, it's looks and handling are excellent, excellent part quality and support. I just think the Revo is alittle easier to use for a noob.
