thinking of buying an e-savage

Post by Georgie » Mon Aug 24, 2009 4:09 pm

Thinking about buying an E-Savage; are they pretty waterproof as far as running them in snow and muddy conditions?
I have heard that the top speed is about 25mph; can you do anything to increase the top speed and possibly the runtime with just the stock set up?

they are not waterproof and you can buy different spur gears and better batteries. i would not recommend if you already have a nitro savage as there just not as fun. unless you would plan on going brushless. i had one for about three years while i lived in my apartment and loved it for the convenience.

there is no way i would ever pay almost $600 to get a flux. the most i would ever pay to get a flux is $400.
