Need a new truck and help deciding

Post by iveybud » Sun Apr 12, 2009 9:31 pm

Hi all, well to start I have an older Savage 25, runs ok needs some tuning etc. thinking of getting a new truck tired of the breakdowns on the old truck (I am awar things will break on the new on as well).

Anyways few questions
1. Losi LST,  LST2, or Savage X        ( I also know there may be some bias towards the Savage here lol )
2. Are parts from the Savage 25, interchangeable with the Savage X?

Oh yes and I am a basher, run it hard and put it away, fix it when it breaks but thats about all I have time for.

All Opinions welcome.

I have and lst and it is a lot of fun. the handling on it is way better than the savage. both the lst's and the savage are great trucks. both will hold up to some heavy bashing. a majority of parts are interchangeable between the old and new models of the savage so if you got another savage it would be easier to maintain. If you want something new and different than get the lst 2. if you want something a little cheaper and easier to maintain since you already have the parts then get the savage. both are great and you will have fun with both. Also make sure you want two trucks. I bought this lst and I haven't run it much just because I like something about the savage more. you will have to buy more parts, more fuel, and everything will be two times more. I thought I would like it but for me it just isn't right because they are too similar. if you want a nice condition lst 2 I would sell it to you. just my thoughts.

honestly, pull the savage right apart and go through it completly and upgrade problem areas, and spend the money on upgrading what you have instead of spending a pile on a new truck. or first at least try to sell what you have, then buy a new truck. honestly, its not worth having 2 of the same type of vehicle unless your racing. i have 2 touring cars and there is no point to itm they drive simular and i only end up running one.

Thanks guys, I was thinking of striping the old 25 a rebuilding but since the parts can be used on the X I will be taking anything worth some cash off the old truck (like the new servo) put the used parts back on it and sell it, using the $ for a new truck. Main reason I'm figuring I'll get all rebuilt and have to do the tranny or motor next at big bucks. So if I get a $300 for the old one I just need another $300 for the new one. IMO I don't see the need to keep 2 + trucks the same on hand, I can wait if it goes down for repair but would just like a bit more reliability.

im with 88 ive got a x4.6 rtr and x.4.6 ss i am already looking for another specially for parts. I run both my trucks one is called bob and the other marley.

Depends what you do and what you like. I maintain my trucks very well so it doesnt break as often if one does break I fix it when I have money and still run the other. I dont have alot of time on my hands mostly sundays but thats enough for me. Rest of the week I clean them and work on them.

I dont have tracks around me but if i did I would have a racer aswell

Stick with savages dude you cant go wrong.
