i just got a job yesterday i start in a week (yeah! this is a triumph as i am only 15) but i was wandering what's bigger over all the clod, the juggernaut or the T-maxx i'm definitely getting the T-maxx and either the clod or the 'naut but to me size matters but so does performance please any info would be helpful. thank you for your time and consideration. oh, yeah before i forget does anyone know where i can get a miniature red and/or amber scanner light i'm building a KITT and KARR replica (1/10th of course) using my tricked out ofna Z-10 pro.

I haven't had the chance to compare them side to side, but I would guess the T-Maxx has the largest overall dimesions.

Ok. I have worked on them all and let me tell you one thing right off. Don't buy a Clod unless you are going to hop it up right off. The Jugg is good if your into electric and the new ones seem better so that wouldn't be a bad truck. But over all I would have to go with a T-Maxx. It is all around awsome. Especally with a 2 speed trany. The only problem that I've come aross is that everything is some compact on the chassis. I repair them at our Hobby Shop so I have much experince and changing a spur gear is a bugger!! But if you get a Robinson Racing Hardend Steal one you only have to change it once. Other than that it is the toughest truck I've seen. Very few problems at all. We've sold at least 20 or so and probably put in 30 dollars in parts over all. Very nice.

The T-Maxx is pretty cool though. I started tearing one down today just to see how everything works and it is cool.

Can the gear ratios be changed on the Maxx ?

Sure. Well you can change the spur gear out. I'm not sure all the sizes available. The hardend steel one is 72 tooth which is stock. I know Traxxas offers a 70 and I think a 74 and a few more.

Kitt, buy the T-maxx now. Ehobbies.com has a 20% off coupon for that truck. There's a special stock number for it, and that I don't know. But go to www.maxxtraxx.com (http://www.maxxtraxx.com) and I think in one of the posts, they have the stock number. Instead of paying 379 bucks for it, why not pay $303, right? Good Luck!
