Re: Best wheels for grip on grass

Hmm, don't know actually. They come in a standard maxx size and a 40 series too. I don't have an XL, nor do I know the rim dimensions.

Re: Best Powerful Engine

That Force .32 is a decent runner, especially for the price on E-Bay. It's no Picco but it is pretty strong.
40 bucks will buy you a new set of bearings for the Picco from Boca.I have seen piston, sleeve and rod sets sell on E-bay for 55 bucks or so. I'd just rebuild the puppy.

Re: Best wheels for grip on grass

Mulchers are awesome but they have a lot of sidebite in grass. The Proline Mashers work excellent in grass, lots of forward bite, just enough sidebite to turn when you want or powerslide on grass if you choose.

Re: un-gluing factory glued tires

[quote="iveybud";p="707803"]newbie question what is the best (common) type of glue to use on the tires?[/quote]
tire glue........j/k. It's almost the same as crazy glue and super glue. They work too but I prefer to use rc specific glues.

Re: un-gluing factory glued tires

15 minutes in the oven @ 300F. I put on a pair of gloves and easily popped all 4 tires off the rims in under a minute. The glue crystalizes much better this way and there is no wet foams to deal with. also the boiling process usually dulls the chrome finish on wheels. I have used the boiling method ...

Re: Savage Flux vs Brushless Buggy Video

Bottom line is he's just a good driver. I don't think it would matter what you gave him to race. Some people have those kinds of driving skills, most don't. A little challenge for you Sam, take that guy's buggy and set it up to your liking. THEN compare lap times, I guarrantee you'll put down better...

Re: UPS is holding my engines hostige!

That's ridiculous, I always use USPS. I sent an entire Savage to Canada fully insured for 600 dollars and with tracking for 60 bucks. It made it in a week no problem.
Somebody at that store needs a good kick in the Jimmy.

Re: Cooling for Savage 4.6

Lower oil content fuel with 30% nitro will make a huge improvement as well.
Most BB engines need medium cool plugs too.

Re: Sugestions for race motor

[quote="I-Hate-Traxxas";p="706848"]So you think that picco would do good in a savage scrogg?[/quote]
No think, I KNOW it does well for racing. It spools up fast and has enough torque to snap a dogbone if you are not careful.
A ceramic main bearing and a little port work and it would be leathal.

Re: Sugestions for race motor

How heavy is your truck? My Savage in race trim was around 10.5 lbs. I tried a Picco .21 BAS engine in it with a 15T CB. This engine would go well over 10 minutes on 160cc of fuel. A little modding and it would be insane. I compared the Picco .21 to my Axial .28 in my Jammin truggy, the Picco .21 sm...

Re: 16/47 and wheelies

I've seen a OS 30 powered Savage X wheelie with ease geared 19/48....... But I beat him in a tug of war with a Mach .26 and 16/49 gearing! :lol:
The O.S. 30 runs with just about any gear combo.

Re: Looking to buy a truggy, but which?

The D8T looks sweet but I hope it is not plagued with the same CVD problems as the buggy. A lot of people are having problems with the front center CVD shearing the pin. If it does not shear it, it will be sloppy after 30 minutes of running. The RC8T is a very good performing truck. Trey7 has one an...

Re: Attention HPI: RE: BRAKES:

That would add to the price tag significantly. A lot of the newer r/c's are going to actual 1:1 brake materials.
Good Example is the Revo's slipper and front breaks. They work awesome and last forever.

Re: Tsais exhaust?

Pick up a Dynamite 086 pipe.....and a lot of extra dogbones...you are going to need them. Picco plus 086 pipe=brutal power.
don't waste your money on an Axial. Get a Picco or LRP, Novarossi 528, SH 28 6 port pro.
