Re: My first bad Savage crash

Nice carnage! Stick with the stock engine mounts. They are cheaper to replace than an engine is.
Rig up a wing and mount for it. They help protect the engine a lot.

Re: Rally call, get out there and race!!!

Monster truck racing has sadly went the way of the dinosaur. I enjoyed it a lot.
Once you race a good truggy one time though you'll see why everyone has defected. Nothing like a good race truggy.

Re: Almost time for maiden voyage!

Did you put blue electrical tape around the edge of the body?
BTW nice truck, one day I'll go knock off the local zippy mart so I can buy a Flux. :lol:

Re: troy8481, calling you out! Share some pics of the newest

I'll sell my engine less electronics and engine for the right price... on second thought NOPE! The Truck looks great Troy, I can't wait to get it on the track. Set your ride height arms level to the ground in the front and slightly above level in the rear. I think that engine is going to be a scream...

Re: Which 1/8 buggy to get?

Buy a good race kit, you won't need any hop-ups. Buggies are not like Savages. They pretty much come out of the box bulletproof and handle great. I had this buggy, the only things it needs are good servos and a radio. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXVGM6&P=0 This would be a great ...

Re: Gear Ratio question :)

13/52 works nicely with a .21, I tried it. It was perfect with a two speed. I used it for racing on tight to medium tracks.

Re: Servo Endpoint Adjustments?

You need to retune. Your tune was fine before, but now that the carb opens fully you need to richen the HSN. The Carb slide should just barely disappear when the throttle EPA is set right. If you hear the servo start to groan and wine, you went too far. You did nothing wrong, you tuned the HSN to th...

Re: compression

The .25 is famous for the sleeve sticking in the block. It took me 3 days, 2 pints of blood, a bag of zipties, 4 popsicle sticks, the oven, the freezer and a LOT of cussing to get the sleeve out of mine. If you have it tuned good and it idles when warm, LEAVE IT ALONE! :lol: Just because it turns ov...

Re: HPI HOT BODIES D8T - Truggy

Hot Bodies claims they fixed the dogbone issues....Trey and I have a close friend who dropped their sponsorship because the buggy kept breaking the front center CVD. Other than that the buggy was bulletproof and fast. I can't wait to see one of the truggies in action.
Nice paint, naked pics please!

Re: Engine hard to start

4 or 5 gallons, it's toast. The bearings in the engine are worn and/or the rod is worn. That's why it's blowing plugs. Tear it apart and inspect it.

Re: Hellfire or CEN matrix tr

If you want a truggy, neither of those. Get a Jammin CRT X2 or an Associated RC8T. 10X the truck both of those are. Heck even a Jammin X1 is better than both of those. The Hellfire is a decent basher, worthless on a race track. The CEN bends upper arms like they are butter and CEN gorilla torques ev...

Kingstar, the Axial .28 Spec1 is identical internally to the K4.6 except I think the K4.6 has a little more crank work done to it.

Re: stripped a gear

I never would have thought HPI would release a Savage with tranny problems. You would think they would have learned by now, especially with alll the griping we have done about the diffs being poorly shimmed and the outdrive bearings being too small. Oh well, brushless and lipo....something has to br...

Re: Best Powerful Engine

You have to use the Collari tuned pipe set for the Savage with that engine if I remember correctly. Something to do with the exhaust port location and shape.

Re: Best Powerful Engine

If you are going to try a cheap engine the STS D28M  is the most powerful mill for the money.
It's about the only STS I would rec. to anyone. If you buy a STs inspect it very good and seal it up before you break it in.

Re: Best wheels for grip on grass

The mashers do well on everything, to me they are the best multipurpose tire.
Edit; The mashers have a smaller outer diameter than the XL tires, so you may want to go up one tooth on the CB to compensate. Otherwise your shift points will be off.
