    on that note might i add that clipping the support of the garage with your tire going decently fast your t-maxx will indeed break suspension components. but they arent thaaat expensive. the upgrades are great. bumpers, skid plates, air filters, gearing, full on chassis, suspension, sway bars, etc etc

    it is a lot of cash, but i think its worth it. its waaaay better than being bored all day long, and for in the snow, you can even get ski's for em! or if you are hardcore, 4 wheel steering!

    boys... can you say BRUISER? that's not a totally new kit at all. been around since the early to mid 80s. the originals are VERY pricy. originally came with a Toyota body.

    Screw the T-Maxx. Get a Losi LST2 and put RPM arms on it. MUCH better truck! Its not as quick as a T-Maxx 3.3 but big block power is where its at! Not to mention more durable!

    i have a savage and its a blast. not the fastest but you wont find a tougher stock r/c out there. the x ss 4.6 kit comes with most of the hop up already installed and is close to 3 horsepower. i have the x and it isnt there best model but its what i could afford, its tough as hell. when i get bored of sipping up and down the street ill find high places to jump it off. drove it off the roof of my garage with no probs and thats about 10 feet or so. so yeah i can attest to there durability.
