Re: Hot Bodies .26

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?

Re: New to Savage XS - general maintenance and upgrade tips??

I'll try to answer your questions as asked: 1. I don't clean with water at all.

Re: New XS SS for me :!:

CVD rebuild kit from LOSI has the pins that will work. I didn't check to see if the barrels fit as well, but I will check next time I break a pin.

Re: New XS SS for me :!:

Broke a CVD pin, HPI doesn't offer a rebuild kit but does offer a set of CVDs for $30. Broke a $1.00 pin and now need to find a 2mm X11mm pin. I am thinking a 12mm long pin from Losi may be the way to go to get running again.....

Re: Suspected air leak

Old fuel? Nitro fuel is mostly Methyl alcohol, it attracts moisture. Not 100% sure of this, but it is a possibility, especially since you're in FLA, *censored* muggy there.
