I've got a little experience with the Savage, and in my opinion it isn't all it is cracked up to be. It is hard to work on, have to take way too much apart to fix anything, and it has a very large turning radius. Personally I have heard good things about the Titan. Check out OFNA forims if you want to here the low down on their trucks.

I would go with a T-MAXX myself, with a couple Integy Aluminum upgrades it is a very reliable, easy to work on, easy to modify, and all around awesome truck.

I own a Savage, and have freinds who own T/E-Maxx trucks.
I also have a friend who owns the OFNA Pirate MT and Dominator (these are actually the same truck for the most part).

If I was making my buying decision again I would totally get the OFNA Dominator. I like the truggy concept way more. Than and I never want to deal with a useless one way (rotostart) or bleeding hands (pull start) again. Bump start is the way to go.

Also shock handling and durability.. The savage shocks are just too long and I have gone through the original set, some hot bodies shocks and now I'm on the integy piggy backs. The shock shafts are just too thin to handle a good beating!
I've also 'S' curved my original frame and gone through both front and rear gear boxes.

The Truggy like the Pirate MT is built on a buggy frame using buggy shocks. Way more options and way more durable. The only problem is you loose ground clearance.

As for the guys promoting a T-Maxx. If you truly want to get a truck that breaks all the time, go for the T-Maxx.

In reality though.. the type of driving you'll do with a monster truck will break it.. no matter which one you get. So my best advice to you is get a truck that your local LHS stock a lot of parts for... AND whos parts are cheap.

I bought a Monster GT from Associated just a few weeks ago. I did exhaustive checks online, local hobby shops and with friends who own trucks. Here what I got out of it;

T-Maxx - Lots of problems, Most modded truck of all. A little cheaper
OFNA - All of their stuff seemed a little delicate, everyone was always full of praise, but everyone was breaking stuff alot, but they did love em.
HPI Savage - Great engineering, looks tall, tough, tons of mods, big motor, remember that the .25 version has a bunch of improvements so HPI learns and fixes problems.
Associated Monster GT - Tough as nails but limited upgrades available

So from that I'd say the Savage would be a good choice.

I bought the MGT only because it looked great and I don't plan on modding stuff alot. Also I plan to keep it and Associated has always done me good in the past for keeping parts available.

I am unsure of ofna's trucks, but I did own 2 ofna buggies. Like any other RTR kit, there are bugs. I rebuild any rtr I get so I can get the bugs before they get me. I had no trouble with breakage or faulty parts. I did alot of jumping and rolling but I never had the unfortunate incident of hitting an immovable object(thank god), so I would say they are tough.
The standard force 4 port is a little weak for a .21, but most now come with better motors.

As you can see here, people are going to tell you to get what they have. I say get what you like. BUT, be sure there is parts support in your area and have fun with whatever you buy.

I am so far behind that I think I'm in first...

gotta say that the T-Maxx that my son is running is a piece of crap.

so far
replaced the plastic bulkheads with aluminum
replaced the plastic upper and lower a-arms with aluminum
replaced a few flex joints
replaced the philips screws with metric aftermarket allen head screws
replaced the aftermarket allen head screws with 6-32 screws (after driling them all out where they sheared or otherwise wouldn't come out)
now waiting for new chassis tub because mounting flanges are all worn or broken.

the engine runs nice,
and the body I bought him a Discount Hobbies in Orleans looks real sweet
and Great Hobbies has a lot of spares

I finally bought the Savage SS.
It now has almost a gallon through it. I put almost a dozen tanks through before it was leaned out.
Last night I was running it up a short bank onto a pave parking lot, it did many side and front endos on the parking lot and still no breakages.

My only dissapointment is the lack of suspension adjustments.
