Re: BUDGET HOP UPS FOR SAVAGE

Some of my best bashers were stock trucks,,If something broke,,I would fix it with stock. And some of my "hop up trucks" have sat for months with something broke,,,waiting for the cash to buy a hop-up. If I was you,,I would continue to update it into an X,,just do a little at a time. other than that...

Re: fees

Ive seen guys ask for fee's openly in the beginning,,Ive paid them before because it was still a good price.
But to ask after the deal has gone down,,,Thats not cool.

Re: E-Savage VS Flux

Esavage & flux are not even close,,at all.
2 different trucks,,,
I really doubt anything will fit.

Esavage was like a knee-jerk reaction into electric.
The flux is well thought out,,and very savage interchangeable.

Re: How many Mechanics out there?

I test drive vehicles for a living,,diagnosing lots of different issues,,
I'm no mechanic,,I tell the mechanic what issue I'm having & they tear it down.

I work on my own cars when I think I can do it,,If its a big job,,I turn to my mechanic co-workers/friends.

Mad respect to all you mechanics.
