I have 2 I bought a 4tec awd car when they first came out , pre trucks w/.15 engine , fast , reliable ,fun. Then came the tmax , more of the same. Better 2.5 engine , still elec start , hard to kill, parts are everywhere! I took the 4 tec apart , got a new 2.5 motor , and it's faster than hell! I've run a gal through it and still runs strong. The tmax I rebuilt after like 3 gals of fuel running it pretty hard . For the money just can't beat em. Traxxas does have a great rebuild deal on the motors too. I see they even have a better one than the 2.5 now.

I have a few Nitro Trucks, 11 to be exact, and they are addicting as hell, had to put them away because i was sinking more money into them then my real trucks!!!

Have a Savage SS that is supercharged, will spin the nobbs right off the tires, pulls the front tires through third gear.

Revo is fun, but expensive as hell to re-build, and it to sensitive, doesn't take the beating like the Savage.
