Which Nitro Remote Controlled Monster Truck is the Best?
The items highlighted in yellow indicates a plus for that particular category. It is a difficult choice.
The Tamiya Terra Crusher comes with battery starter unit to start the nitro engine and comes standard with a 2 speed transmission with a reverse capability.
The HPI Savage 21 does not have the battery starter unit, and uses a pull-start mechanism. It also does not come with a reverse module, but you can buy both the reverse module and the battery starter unit as optional upgrade parts.
The HPI Savage 21 does have its advantages over the Tamiya Terra Crusher. It has a slightly larger and more powerful more that should make it run faster than the Terra Crusher. The dual chamber tuned pipe will also add horsepower.
What it comes down to is your personal preference. Both nitro monster trucks are similarly priced. The HPI Savage is packaged as faster out of the box, while the Tamiya Crusher is packaged as more fun out of the box (because of the reverse module).
Personally, I would buy the Terra Crusher, because I love Tamiya cars and trucks. But don't get me wrong, the HPI Savage 21 is a great deal.
Bottom line, you get a lot of fun and high tech equipment at an affordable price. Buy one today. Better yet, why not just buy both?
