Big Dawgs Savage project/build

Post by Bigdawgsavage » Tue Mar 11, 2014 12:51 am

hey guys kinda new to the forum and thought i would come in and stroll.. in the meantime i thought i would share my project savage and how its become one of my favorites.. ive always been that guy that buys trucks and mods them and just sells them before i even get to drive them... well this one is different.. i have been into rcs for over 15 years and ive had everything from boats, planes, cars/trucks, nitro, electric to gas powered 1/5 scales.. and over the years i have come attached to the savage line of trucks..so i think im going to keep this one and just make it the way i want.. about 3 years ago i got out of rcs to get into another hobby of building atvs and sleds... well dang it. i been missin out lol.. atvs and sleds are cool but these things never seem to get old to me.. so one day an old buddy of mine called me and asked me what i would suggest for his first rc and i had him sold on the savage, so with him buggin me to help him, made me want another, so here it is...

Sorry timmy they should all work now. I just had to fix it cause i moved the pics to a different folder and they wouldnt work anymore. Thanks for the comment btw.. I like this pipe better then any other pipe i have ever had. I dont know if this is why but the idle is ao much smoother and the power is just there when u go to squeeze the throttle. I can tell its going to be very reaponsive

So.. After messin with the savage some more this weekend the picco boost finaly came in the mail and just looking at the motor i thought.. The *censored* with the lrp i had to have the picco boost on my truck, so that being said here are some pics..

The beast:

Once i got the motor and pipe installed i had to mess with some things in the suspension to get the truck to my liking as i wait for a glow plug considering i didnt buy one with the motor so now i have to wait... Boring... So i thought id try the method of using fuel line under the shock pistons to lower is a lil.

I can't wait to see some video of it bashing. You'll enjoy the motor and pipe combo very much

hey guys, havent been on the site much lately been busy with work but im still messin with the savys.. i actually got another one in the shop and have been working on it.. its an older model but its like new.. this one is a savage 21 with a nitrostar 21 bb 3.5 in it and let me tell u.. it is clean.. pulled the truck apart for a good cleaning, which wasnt much because i dont think its had more then a few tanks run through it.. i got this truck for free from my cousin and have had a little time with it.. i pulled the motor apart to go through it and it is like new.. the piston is still shiny like the day it was released..
