Way more power than the 2.5cc. The savage uses a 3.5cc engine rated about 2hp whereas the 2.5cc is only rated about 1hp and change.

To answer your question, the Savage has been tested again and again against the T-Maxx 2.5. These tests show that the Savage has quicker starts around turns but the T-Maxx accelerates past it in the straight. These quicker starts are due to the .21 engine while the .15 is tuned for more speed. If you want a truck that accelerates faster out of the box, get the Savage. If all you want is speed, get a nitro car. :beard:

Regardless of tests, the engines are not quite equivalent. The .21 is a larger displacement engine and does produce more power. The real question goes to set up. You can gear a big engine down and a small engine up and get better results from the smaller engine.

I'm thinking that if you gear both engines to maximize their output, the .21 will win hands down.

Is there anywhere that lists ratings for engine /gear combinations?

Some good stuff over there on Maxxskunkworks. Thanks, it was pretty informative.

Even tough a .21 is more powerfull, I'm still trying to get my hands on a 2.5. The Savage is attractive, and reports are that it's hard to kill, still I'm not so excited about the size and weight.

If their close enough performance wise that I need to see them head to head then the difference dosn't matter to me.
