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.

Looks like you might be on your way to a few more negative points.

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.

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.
