    What is the best rc monster truck out there???

    I was just woundering if there is any really good monster truck thats strong and that looks cool. It doesn't need to be waterproof. It just needs to go fast and is powerful.

    Talking I got one for ya!

    Fast and powerful eh? Well, I own both the savage flux hp and the stampede 4x4. They are both respectably different trucks. One uses two batteries and one uses one. The savage flux hp is a 1/8 brushless beast. On 2x3s, it goes over 60+ mph stock. I have gps'ed it using my iPhone onboard. That speed is ultimately confirmed. However, the savage flux is not waterproof.The use of twin batteries are needed to run the truck. The portability of the truck is a big issue it weighs roughly 7kgs and is not a small truck.

    The stampede 4x4 on the other hand feels different than the savage flux when driving. It is much lighter, 1/10 and uses one battery. It is also brushless but a much smaller brushless system having the least torque of the two. I have gps'ed it using the iPhone onboard at about 50+mph stock on 3s. That is pretty good. Looking at how light it is, if you hit a ramp at that speed, it will FLY.

    It depends on what you do with it. For extreme bashing, just abusing the truck in everyday imaginable, the savage is right for you. For portability and just bashing with friends and occasional racing, the stampede is for you. I personally recommend the stampede if you are not into stripping the car apart and cleaning it because it is waterproof and you can literally bathe it in water (or mud hehe).

    Hope this helps

    Thanks! I am more of a Traxxas fan, and I've seen rcnightmare's savage flux review and they don't like how u need to tear it down to clean it. They also said that it's stupid fast. You should watch the video.

    Revo! Best handling monster truck by far and it's pretty durable. People discredited it just because it's a Traxxas. Those people are idiots.

    i say the erevo its electric so its simple and you can bash a ton or do a little bit of racing with it, i would pick the erevo over just about any monster truck but i do want to get a savage flux
    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    i will be able to tell you about the stampede 4x4 vxl in about a week i ordered it today. I hope its worth the money. I was looking at the stampede xl 5 and figured i would go all out and get the best. The best you can do is look on u tube and see what fits you best cause everyone does things differently. But i know theres alot of bad things said about the wheely king. I cant wait for that stampede to come in and also that one came with a battery and charger included in the price i dont think the hpi comes with them
