That is a beautiful truck. Nice layout on the radio box and carbon cover. Almost too pretty to even get dirty.....I like the look of the anodized screws until they start falling out and you don't have any more to replace them....but Nice truck!!
We can agree to disagree!!

Gorgeous! Beautiful! I love it. I think perhaps being a racer it should have some 40 series dish tires and low profile bow ties or similar, but apart from that it is stunning.

Great job!! Come back with some more videos when you get more fuel through it!!

Hello all,

Thank you for your comments, my friend is happy that you like his savage ;)

For the videos, my friend bought a camera but now he has to test it etc... and after that he will post good videos !

KiZ : my friend puts standart wheel and tires because the principal aim was to have the lightest savage for the best racing sav...

But he has to test it and see how the savage feels and regulate what isn't appropriate.

Don't forget, it's a project ! :lol:

jlmoto : he has just doing the statics fuel tanks, so no prob for the moment with derlin gear :lol:
I don't understand what you say by "the tranny for like $40" ? You want to konw if he pays $40 for the spur gear ? Noo, just 5-10$ ! lol

there is a guy on ebay selling a set of gears only (not the whole trans) made of derlin for the transmission for about $40....I was wondering if they are worth it for the weight savings or stick with the steel for strength...

I was not impressed with HPI Land Rover Defeneder body. But it looks awesome on your truck. The colors you picked look alot better then the red hpi did
