LST2 fa' sho'...
The guy i got it off has made no more since as he cant get them done for a good price, so we would end up paying a small fortune which is not reasonable, there are fibre glass ones on Ebay under beetle shells, have bought an F-150 shell from him 2 years ago and its still going, very strong.
You probably wont find one like mine anymore, so thinking about it I should have bought 2 of them when i had the chance.

Is looking foward to the new summer season and getting back to the smell of Nitro
T-Maxx. Was the truck that brought us to where we are now & revolutionized the industry. I know it had many faults, but you gotta respect the inovations of it. 2nd to "the Maxx" (and I am not being manufacturer bias here) would be the Revo. Cant believe no-one mentioned it yet. As much as I like the LST series trucks, the Revo handles way better & was again, a truck full of revolutionary ideas!
Last fave is ........the Muggy well, the parts of it that are MT anyway....
The T-Maxx is the whole reason the rest of these trucks exist basically, so for the best of all time I would have to give it to the T-Maxx.
:LST. As tough as old boots,smash bash it ,kick , still keeps going.
Another vote for the mighty MTA4
They have their flaws, like the others, but underestimated I think.
And a mess like this only cost me £20 to sort out, and took no time at all.
Good trucks. I bought a complete .21 model recently, well used for £40, just for spares.
Reasonably easy to work on, masses of `hop ups`, loads of info on line through dedicated web sites to these models, and perhaps you could say, not `just another Savage`.
Still loving it and taking it forward.

has to be the savage 4.6 for me. i fell in love with mine the moment i opened the box. then i found new love when i took it to a moto x track, pulling off 25-30 air and not breaking a thing. same cant be said for my brother who didnt attach its roll cage and landed directly on the engine on a rock... one split in half engine :P
however mine now spends its life in a cupboard in my workshop as racing took all the bashing time i have =(

For sure without a doubt the best MT for me is the Revo PE.. this awesome piece of machinery, is so far ahead in its class its scary.. Not only does it beat the hell out of all the MT's On track its an AWESOME basher and a GREAT jumper...
AWESOME CAR with innovation that has left all other MT's in its wake...

i started with a tmaxx, but the engine was so blinkin problematic that it was just no fun to drive.
subsequently bought an original savage .21 about 4 weeks after the tmaxx and i've still got it all these years later, upgraded the engine twice and it's now running a .46. Added proline 23mm hex's and wabash wheels, added a 3spd box, reverse (eaten just one of these, new brakes, ribbed pipe, tweaked the original radio box, mucked about with the link mod's and upgraded the diffs.
Every so often i treat it to a new shell.
It's just a brill truck and i've never felt the desire to buy anything different - and i'm the first to be tempted by new stuff all the time.
LST 2 for me overall, but when it came to racing it had to be a Revo.
