a tmaxx is to much ans has to may parts and breaks alot. A stampede is to tall and rolls over and only 2wd. The rustler is the truck with the least amount of problems. And is the fastest and has lots of hop-ups. You will be amazed with power and handling.:D

choose carefully. the tmaxx is a great truck for heavy duty bashing and jumping not to mention if you have a lot of grass or rough areas to run and are limited to dirt and pavement then i would say tmaxx.
on the other hand, if you plan on racing some running on paved roads some and just bashing in the dirt the rustler is hard to beat!!.
the stampede would kinda be a happy medium between the two, me i would go with the rusty over the stampede. but that is just my opinion. for one if i want a tall truck. why make a 2wd tall? you still have the disadvantage of 2wd. if i want a truck like that i would go with 4x4 or nothing.
personally i have both the tmaxx and the rustler. i like my maxx for backyard bashing but my rustler i use on the road and at the local ball field or dirt track. honestly, you need to research what driving you are doing the most of and take it from there.
the tmaxx and rustler are very good choices no matter what you choose it will be the right choice cause it is a traxxas lol.

my neighbor has a stampede, i have a rustler. my rusty leaves the pede in the dust. He is runnin a smaller spur than me also. like a 64! I am runnin a 70. same fuel.
But his has the duratraxs adjustable shocks. And he can just sit out in the road after it rains and do doughnuts from all and not flip!! but he cant keep the front whels down! He had to put a wheight on the front to hold in down. i think like 4 onces. didnt help to much. so if want to do alot of wheelies and do good doughnuts and just fart around with decent speed. the pede.
but if you want, really good speed, good jumpin car that holds up well, and can go almost anywhere. rutler all the way

RUSTLER! there unbalivably strong, fast and can do all most anything the maxx can.
and 2wd is more fun to drive.

rustler!!! it si the fastest..most durable...and the lowst center of gravity...the maxx is tough but breaks alot and the pede cant stay on all 4 wheels...the rusty is the best

if you wanna ride all around (street, grass, dirt) with fast speed and decent steering, get the rustler
if you just want insane power and off-roading, get the t-maxx, but wait till the new one comes out.
if you dont wanna spend that much money for a monster truck, get the pede for big jumps and a little off-roading
my choice out of those three would have to be the rustler because where the t-maxx and pede have problems, the rustler holds its ground.

i say the rustler b/c tmaxx is like a hardcore offroad car and not as good on the street but if u want a little bit of both go with the rustler but wait for the new engine it will be 10 mph faster just with the stock engine!!!!!!!!!!its only a little longer
