Re: iCow's NEW Mid-tank Conversion [MGT version]

The pics have probably been deleted from the host site.... it's kinda hard to keep pics that are 5 years old!

Re: Drinking

Wow, I never realized what a bunch of conservative people on here, not that that's bad.  I drink quite often, and I don't see any point in drinking a 1 or 2 beers.... it's usually 6-8 on Friday or Saturday night and whenever I go out to dinner with a designated driver.  I don't think having a few on...

Re: Quick question of the industry.

There is a TON more that can be done.  All you need to do, is look at the 1/5 scale scene....  I was a loyal Savage fan for 5 years as it got me into the hobby from day one of the Savage release.  Since April 2007 I've been into 1/5 with the HPI Baja.  There best innovations and aftermarket parts ha...

Re: spur gear replacement

What are you trying to change, the spur gear and slipper clutch?

It depends what setup you have.  What truck are you running?

Re: Twin engine 5.9

Try here: www.neweramodels.com they have a conversion for the regular Savage X, SS, etc, not sure about the XL.   A word of advice, unless you have money to burn I would reconsider this.  I bought one of their conversion kits when they first came out and regretted it about a month into the process. ...

Re: what do you know about boats?

I actually read of some of the posts.... 2 stroke engines are dream to work on compared to nitro.  I've basically gotten out of nitro (keeping 1 savage), but once the 2-stroke is tuned and maintained, it runs like a dream....it doesn't stall out and run until the tank is empty.  If you have a a few ...

Re: How does International Shipping work?

The only time USPS updates the tracking info is when the item has been delivered.  If the # is in the system, then USPS has issued a # and sent the package.  It can be a lonely and long wait for the package when you don't know where it is!

Re: times are getting tuff, what are you doing to survive?

I hear all of you.  I'm parting out an extra Savage because I don't use it and can get more money for a part out than a complete sale....I've listed all my prices below stock new stuff....and still very few offers.  I guess I'm lucky though, good job, no chance of losing it, just got a raise, and st...

Re: Savage X or Savage X SS

Are you new to the hobby?  If not, then I wouldn't say the kit would be any harder than working on any other RC.  The X and X SS are virtually the same in terms of long term work....they both have easy access differentials and transmissions, which was the real pain in the *censored* when working on ...

Re: steel spurgear????

If your burning a spur gear every time there is an underlying problem.  Have you change the size of the spur or clutchbell, or taken the motor out?  I'm thinking it is a gear mesh issue.   Have you set the gear mesh properly?   I would NOT spend the money on a steel spur now until you know what is c...

Best online hobby shops for savage parts:

Savage central store

I just saw this thread, I know it's a been dead for a few weeks, but I'd say go to college.  If you still feel like joining in 4 years, you'll be able to be an officer.  If you don't want to do it then, you won't be locked in (assuming you don't sign any commitment papers now).
