There not that bad. Durability does lack, but they beat the stock savage and nothing compares to a T-maxx A-arm suspension. It is by far the best suspension design on the market.

*censored* yeah! My E-Maxx reacts and drives way better than the overdone Savage suspension. Thats's just something you have to "feel". It's.... more realistic. Real hard to explain, but you'll know what i mean when you first drive an e or tmaxx and then a savage.

Savage is more of a basher, pure power and durability, nothing realistic... :)

The maxx suspension is so much more responsive. I find it better than the revo.

I've had both the tmaxx pro15 and 2.5 and had some mods done to both and it broke all the time and was a pain in the butt. Things broke very easy and other times it held up just fine. Mostly it broke all the time. lol I sold it and bought a Savage and man am I sorry I did it so late into R/C. The Savage is so much more stronger and much more fun because I can actually use it all day long and kick the Cr#P out of it and it does not break. The only parts that broke were a spur gear and the new .28 engine I put in. Now Im waiting for the new .28 to be sent back to me. Bad luck during break-in and not the fault of the Savage. So I say Savage is by far the better truck for bashers and everyday drivers. but I have no race experience so I cant say it is the best at everything. my 45cents. :lol:
