racer build help needed

Post by sportyfortyeight » Fri Nov 02, 2012 9:18 pm

little back ground.. iv raced my revo for some time and have a savy 25 that i used as a basher/let friends drive and now im setting out to build a beast from it. i did do some hop ups to the 25 as things broke but not fully sure what all i did. i know iv got some of the parts to convert it to the x like the bulk heads but i want to get all main stuff needed for the rebuild before i start. so far heres the list iv got going for the build but not sure on some things like shocks and the mid tank mount and such and would love to get some thoughts from the savy racers. savage sams build is what made me want to do this...thanks in advance to all that help



FRAME: all cf from prc.. lcg extended version
prc118 = 164 tvp/skid plate kit
prc153 = 20

Don't bother wasting your time with platinum RC. He's been on hiadous for almost a year. I would source out some other TVPs or used PRC ones

If you want check out my project 65 thread in the projects section. It may give you some ideas on how my truck is setup. Mines a full on speed machine and weighs under 10lbs.

Also I highly recommend getting an ERCM picco. No other motor on the market can touch Robins work, ESP paired with one of his endbleed pipes :twisted:

that sucks about the cf parts. my plan was to make every thing cf that i could to put the savy on a huge diet.  im going to email him and see what the out come is from it. also wonder if savagexsam might have a way to reach him as it seems a world winner would have the ability to reach folks for parts on a wild build as his.. i checked your thread out and im not going for all out speed. the track around me is kinda small and tight. my revo with a p2 gets about 3/4 wot and that's pushing it

Its a shame that PRC are hard to get hold of as they had the best stuff going around for the savage racer conversion, im sure jason has lots on his plate and the side job ( PRC )  has been put on the back burner, I responded to your questions re your build and good luck with it....
