Buy Revo 3.3 or Savage X ???
« on: June 22, 2012, 11:42:45 AM »
Not sure if this has been posted here before or not... I'm undecided between a Revo 3.3 or the Savage X. Any recommendations or opinions would be appreciated. Thx.

it really depends on your plans for the truck. no question, the revo is a far more agile truck, itll handle better, and out of the box it will be faster. however the downside is its not nearly as strong as the savage. if your bashing a revo, you will break stuff. the savage is tough. ive had mine for 4 years now, the worst thing ive done to it is stripped a clutch bell after 3 years of beating. ive landed on its lid, driven into curbs, tumbled it where it was bouncing off each wheel, and its always come back for more. this is by far the toughest truck ive ever owned.

id recommend this truck over anything out there. mine is the x ss model, although i think since i bought mine they have changed a bit. now the rtr versions have 4 big bore shocks instead of 8, better diffs, and a different engine. really the only upgrades i say are needed is bearings in the steering linkage and a decent steering servo (just like on any monster).

id say go with the x. the xl is just bigger, however it comes with the k5.9, its not known for being a very good motor, the k4.6 and f4.6 in the x trucks are far better engines. the xl does come with a few other things, like a 3 speed, better pipe (than the rtr) and a few other bits. the extended length of the xl helps with stability, but i dont think its enough of a reason to spend more money on a truck with a poor performing motor.

^Yep.

I'd go for the SavageX 4.6 and pickup a 3speed from an XL on eBay if you want that.

I own an eRevo as well.  By FAR a better handling truck if you want to go fast around turns or on a track but since monster truck racing is pretty much dead, I'd still get the Savage for a kickass fun truck.
