Re: Savage X vs losi 8ight 3.0

LL you hit the nail right on the head. When I was building the buggy my sons would look at it and maybe ask a few questions and then have something to say like "well, the savage is just better" or when my oldest does a wheelie for 30 yards he will look at me and say "your buggy can't do that" lol. H...

Re: Savage X vs losi 8ight 3.0

Bigbigbrig do you race your losi 8ight 1.0?  What engine are you running in it?  We just raced for our first time. Things were cut short because of a faulty on off switch. We are running a p5xlt and in the qualifiers we were third at one point and seemed like we could run with anybody out there.  Th...

Re: Savage X vs losi 8ight 3.0

On the savage I think I'm running 4717 with a vented clutch bell and the plastic spur   The pipe on the Savage is an ERCM side bleed.  The shift points in the three speed have not been adjusted at all I really don't care when they shift. From the sounds of things they shift pretty early. I'm not in ...

Re: Wheelie shifting into second or third?

I guess my tuning is getting better because we were able to pull a wheelie in second gear today. Impressive accomplishment

Savage X vs losi 8ight 3.0

My oldest son has been telling me he thinks our savage could beat our buggy in a straight race. A drag race. So today we started them both and got them to operating temperature and then raced. We were on an asphalt road and raced about 50 yards. The savage won by about twenty feet. We then raced aga...

Re: Glitches on first race day.

You're right I will get another one for convenience.  The wierd thing is the on off switch went out in my savage about a month ago.

Re: Glitches on first race day.

After removing the on off switch I started it up and ran it with my 1300 life battery. It ran perfect. I'm debating not using an on/off switch any longer. Thank you  for everyone's input.

Re: Glitches on first race day.

Me too. However I still need to find the problem because the 1700 life will not fit in my buggy with the cover on. If I needed to I could run it that way but I really like having the cover over the battery.
Today I am going to run it without the on off switch and see if that's it.

Re: Glitches on first race day.

Glitch buster arrived. So I installed and tested electronics. Everything was working so I started buggy and tested electronics and everything was working. I put the buggy on the ground and drove for a moment and then it took off about 50 yds until it hit a metal stake. I then installed my 1700 life ...

Be sure to post some videos. I look forward to seeing this engine in a savage. The link didn't work for me either.

Re: Glitches on first race day.

One more thing on raising servos. In total I have raised them about 3/32" or a light 1/8". Is that an adequate distance or would some type of material between the servo and chassis be required also?

Re: Glitches on first race day.

Ive got all my forms and receipts printed and ready to mail but I will wait until I test glitch buster Thursday night to see if that fixes.  I cant help but try to figure this out in my head while waiting for parts.  What I am now wondering is why I cant get it to glitch on the starter box when the ...

Re: Glitches on first race day.

Re: Glitches on first race day.

Thank you Squid. I can reproduce the problem on the bench. I was just watching the linkage and didn't think to watch the light in the receiver.  When it's revving like that I just want to get it shut off as quick as possible. Also I will call horizon as you suggested. If it's not a quick and easy fi...

Re: Glitches on first race day.

I don't use a fail safe other than what's built into the spektrum. I have it set for full brakes. Both servos are the same. I use hitec HS 5645MG. I know that's a bit much for throttle but I had one extra so I used it. For the most part it has worked fine until now. Also I think I mentioned earlier ...

Re: Glitches on first race day.

The funny thing is I was trying to explain it to my wife and for comparison I told her about the hpi 2.4 and she asked why I just didn't get another one of the hpi tx/rx. I told her I didn't know but that I wish I had. If I am understanding this correctly. When I throttle there is a voltage drop whi...

Re: Glitches on first race day.
