My first savage, in Louisiana

Post by 1crzhrs » Mon Jul 14, 2014 2:44 pm

Just decided to buy a Savage X 4.6. I have had a few electric truggies, I have a Kyosho super 10 nitro road car from way back and a sportwerks mayhem nitro buggy. The main reason for the savage is to do some mild jumps and pop wheelies. I have been breaking in the engine so far and melted the spur gear on the first tank. So I adjusted the throttle linkage best I could until the ofna upgrade parts come in, and got the brakes set up. Just finished adjusting on the idle and leaned it out some due to it bogging down bad when trying to go half throttle. Seems like it will be a fun truck once it is set up. I have a vented bell and a few extra spur gears on the way and will be buying a hellfire tank this week as well. Looks like some very good info on the site! As soon as i get it dialed in i'll mount the go-pro to it and make a video.

Welcome to Savage Central. I am on the Mississippi gulf coast just north of Pascagoula. Sounds like your off to a good start with the upgrade parts and such. I suspect that the Savage X is good for mild to wild bashing, I know I put my Flux XL through wild bashing just about every time i take it out. LOL! Don't be shy and we love videos around here.

Welcome to Savage-Central 1crzhrs!

Looking forward to seeing your videos in the future.

I had same issue with spur gears.. I went to a metal robinson racing spur gear and haven't had an issue since.
Savage X LRP.32 All sorts of upgrades!!!
Savage SS Custom machined TVPs LRP.28
LOSI 5ive-T Upgraded engine/servos
Jato 3.3 Stock


If your not supposed to break them, why do they make new parts?
