Actually the 4908 is the new T-Maxx 3.3, the 4909 is the older version.

New 4908

the differance is about $40.00 and I think some improvments to the drivetrain and looking at the pictures I no longer see reverse on the newest version...

I believe the new one does not have reverse, but I never use it on mine because I idle too high for it to switch to reverse. I was looking at the new T-Maxx 3.3 at my LHS so it's out, the hex hardware is a nice touch and will prevent a lot of stripped screws and the headaches from them.

Thanks for the info. I checked out 4 stores, and can not find either of them anywhere?? I'm not sure if I would miss the reverse, it was a nice feature on the last one I had. But maybe I could adjust? Any recomendations on ordering from a decent on line store that is not a scam?
