Savage Octane 5b

Post by Tor_evo_20th » Wed Jan 15, 2014 3:46 am

Since there will be no Savage Octane coming anytime soon. I do not want to wait anymore and we have a few people in Thailand doing this conversion from Grass cutter engine swap into Savage.
So I decide to get on with it and buy the grass cutter.
Image
in the picture you will see engine cc is 59.xx cc which is quite big. But no other 26cc engine to compare on the day that I buy the cutter so I didnot notice the different in size.
to start off with some parts that I have left over previous build of 6x6x6 flux XL and Flux XL LowCG, latest 5.9XL LowCG with Midtank mods.
Image

After got the engine I went to a local hobby shop. And compare the size to 26cc from HPI. This is what happen!!!
Image

cannot use any parts to modified. Need a lot of work which I do not have time to run around.
Image

This is a mock up I made to see how the engine size putting on the extended length = Super 5 SC Flux I already got a hand on Dogbone for Super 5sc flux from Local hobby shop.(I prefer to use as much as parts from HPI so that I can ask LHS to order for me as I lived in Thailand)
Image

So as you can see there is not enough space for this engine with this set of parts. So the engine is pack and waiting for next project. (May be a savage hopup  with grass cutter on top for cutting grass around the house)

So I decide to go and order new engine which is the same size as 26cc from 5b. There are a few parts that easier to find.
Now I have time while waiting for the new engine to arrive.
It is time for mock up of the parts from LHS with 5b rollcage and wing.

Image
Empty space behind the transmission will be for new engine. Pattern on the back after rear diff housing will be change later.

id be concerned on how the savage drivetrain will handle that sort of weight and torque.

This would not be a problem. The video clip is the successful Savage Octane done with the XL transmission. He start this since 2010 and he sold quite a few of the finished one to other people to play.

If you want to see more Savage Octane run click his name on youtube for other clip.

For other information you could find some pics in this link which is in Thai but lots of page have pics of the finished Savage Octane.

It would be a bit heavier compare to Super 5 SC FLux due to engine weight. Considering Super 5SC flux also have weight on twin Battery also.
Super 5SC Flux is also Savage Base. Except it have a diff in the transmission instead of normal gear.
Wheel and tire I would go for Super 5 SC flux as they are lighter than 5B one or Just stay with the 23mm proline wheel. This would give a longer life for the transmission. As I want to play with it not a shelf-queen.

For Pinion and Spur you will see what I use once they arrived. There are some  parts that I just order on Monday which I think should fit this setup without too much modification.

So have time to continue with 5b. Engine position looks ok. Rollbar looks ok.  Need to figure out rear wheel steering and throttle along with finding fuel tank.
