The XS does a good job if upholding the durability standard with the exception of the stock outdrive cups. Go HD air and you're good to go. I went with the set of hot racing. Things so much fun at the BMX dirt jumps.
The XS is way closer to the original savage the the e-savage ever could be.

Re: Is this forum still active?

I still check the forum just about daily to see if anyone posts. Not a lot of action here any more, I remember back when my wife would be upset it took me an hour just to go through new posts on here.

Re: Hot Bodies .26

You may be right, the Nitro Star engines were made by Force, the HB could be as well. It's been quite a while since I have messed with any of the stock motors.

Re: Hot Bodies .26

Wow, that question made me think "I know that!". Then I stopped and thought about it, I am not sure, but believe it is a SH motor. I do believe that this is answered in an old post in the engine section though.

Re: parts

HobbyFever.com, AKA the SC Store, has a fair bit of parts in stock, not sure what you are looking for. Towerhobbies is the HPI distributor last I knew. I have seen quite a bit of parts on ebay and amazon also.

Re: Helicopter nitro in a savage

As long as it has enough oil in it I don't think it's an issue. What is the nitro% and what is the oil content?

Re: 50 mph.... how to get there

If you read the entire thread, the subject is building a Savage to reach the highest speed possible, not what vehicle to by that is built to go fast.

Re: Dusting the cobwebs off

I agree with SV250. Some new batts and fuel and fire 'em up.
Get the upgrades after you get them up and running.
Do the engines turn over?
