    IMO, they are both good but the Savy is a great basher. A buddy of mine has the Revo 3.3 and I have the Savy x and he has broke steering componets and lost a spur gear and I have only broke the fuel tank on my Savy (my fault). While these arn't the Erevo or Flux the platforms are the same

    These kinda questions can get pretty heavy, like asking Chevy, Ford or Mopar. People like what they like

    I haven't had experience with the Savage but I have an E Revo. The plastic on the revo is really strong even the gears. If the Savage gears are not the best, just upgrade them. They are only a few bucks.

    The old Savy had some issues, but the new(er) X is pretty good, plastic is plastic though.

    When compared to the revo, IMO, They are 'bout the same when using the stock shocks. The Savy might be able to take a little larger hit from a big jump the Revo's susp design gives it more ground clearance. Keep in mind that they are really different kits. While you can race the Savy it is more of a bashing kit where the Revo is more towards the racing side but can bash. The Savy's can't really take a corner very well in stock form (out of the box) but it is fun to try, lol
