Re: my Savage x 4.6

Take you whole spur setup off and check your slipper pad. Then reinstall everything, if you over tightened the nut you could have slightly bent the spur shaft

Re: Vorza/Savage BP diff How to

The racing versions of these cups from HB are the same but IMO the Tessman stuff is for a lighter vehicle but hey run cause if you break it report it and let us know

Re: Say hi to Alicia my next project!

The stuff he sells is actually made by GPM which is a great company. The only issue you could see with this setup is gravity feeding because the tank is higher than normal. You ideally want the tank level with the carb. However try it as it sits

Re: Can ijust slap aflux system in it?

Technically yes but the nitro tranny is not locked and you would not have a reverse. I would just get on dollarhobbyz.com and buy the stock flux parts for super cheap.

Re: Picco Boost .28 rotostart in Savage

Thats why I bought it, because it might very well be the last blue top. If I do use it, it will be ERCM modded and it will be put to good use. If you need help finding parts or anything for the picco just let me know.

Re: Picco Boost .28 rotostart in Savage

LOL, they are identical motors with the exception to the button, cooling head, and carb. The internals are the same. IMO the amount of pinch from the factory is less on the boost. I just prefer the blue top but really like the boosts cooling head. I had the wife send me a pic of the motor, its a leg...

Re: Battery upgrade?

A true 65c plus lipo will make a noticable inpact on your power and run times. Ive never really heard anything about venom. I personnaly run Turnigy A spec G2 lipos and enjoy them very much.

Re: Its been a BAD day in my nitro world!

Set you gap then preheat, once it idles with out dying give it some gas ( a little), when you give it some gas and it dies, lean the HSN out a little until it doesnt die. I broke my PS on my last picco even preheating it lol. I made a limp noodle PS too. I would replace it honestly but if it still w...

Re: Picco .28 p3 shims

No they dont go bad, just keep them clean and be very careful not to bend them up. They need to be clean when you install them so they keep a good seal.

Re: Alza Diff Mount on a nitro FLM45100 TVP setup

The Alza setup is a direct drop in for the stock tranny location. You may run into an issue with the rear dogbone due to the chassis being FLM which is shorter than XL. But you can easily find a dogbone that will fit. Hopefully the FLM bone works, it should.

Re: Picco .28 p3 shims

I run all 3, IIRC two are 0.2mm and one is 0.1mm. If your above 4000ft in elevation then I would remove the thinnest but if your under that, then leave all three in place.

Re: Picco P3 28 or Navarossi 287T

To measure power is to throw gearing at it. If a motor can push 1:1 gearing without being phased it means it has a lot of power. To do a top speed run you need both torque and rpm. Without this you cannot go very fast. What does this mean for a basher? It means you get a jaw dropping setup. A normal...

Watch and judge for yourself. The nova or neals new over inflated dyno tuned LRP can't match what an ERCM picco can do. Besides the ERCM picco is faster than a flux on 6s

Re: SAVAGE XSS REBIRTH 3 Speed tranny BP upgrade

Go for 30%, burns cooler and makes more power. You don't need to do anything but adjust the tune. If it's a new motor you can even break it in with it. I use Werks 30% on from start to finish. Amainhobbies is having s sale on quarts. I hope it's still going on. Buy 12 qtrs and you don't have to pay ...
