I am curious how you find the Savage SS compaired to the Losi LST? What are the pros anc ons of each one? Does one excell in a particular environment over the other?

Both have .26 motors,Savage has slight higher ground clearance,both quick, Savage jumps better,Losi looks better with wider track. The one thing about the Savage that I really like is the ease of the motor break in period.

All these trucks are awesome. I think what should help you decide is what you like to do. If you like to rip around a track maybe losi or tmzxx. If you want to set up a ramp and jump your neighbours fence and bash their wall maybe a savage will do. All the trucks listed are great! I chose savage due to its super strong crashing ability. Good luck with whatever you buy, any trucks being discussed would be great!

Hey guys
Ended up going with the Savage and have not regreted it
. I have had it for about four months and have not replaced any of the stock parts except that I put a heavier steering servo in it because I use the truck on grass, gravel, sand and mud and the stock unit did not want to turn or hold the tires during the turn

Thanks guys Steve

Yeah, I haven't really had any problems with the Savage's steering, but I just got the new aluminum servo saver kit to be safe since I installed larger tires on it (from the AE MGT). It seems it's the servo saver set they are putting in the newer kits. It takes alot of slop outta the steering and just adds alot more toughness to the already bulletproof design of the truck

Straight up chow, the IMEX rims with jumbomaxx tires really test out the steering, lol. If you want wide there you go. Mine sits another 3 " wide with those bad boys on.
