what cars do you have now?? and why wait till hpi uses locktite, it's not that much work to do it yourself. and i've already done it to mine, so i could give you a hand if you need it.

yeh, i think the new ones with the x's will be in stores soon enough. so i guess once they are available you are going to pick one up? shoot me an email so we have each others contact info and when you get your savage we can go run.

i'm always looking for people to run the cars with (the more the merrier) i've been running with 2 guys, both of which have savages now. but they are not always available and it's also nice to run with a few people.

I just got back from my LHS and I picked up anew fuel tank from the RTR 25. Cant wait to test it out and see if it fixes the problems of the old tank.

The owner took the tank out of a new 25 and sold me it for the price of the old tanks. I also ripped one of the diff apart for parts cause he was out and I have to race tmrw. Hopefully everything goes well tmrw and this tank doesnt disappoint. I looked at the hex on the truck and they didnt look that much stronger.

Well I got my 25 last week. Added the locktite, added a reverse module, Ballastic RX back. Ran one tank at idle with wheels off the ground, and another in fifure 8's at up to 14 1/3 throttle I will go through another tank or 2 tonight. Temps never exceeded 205 deg. So far so good. This engine runs VERY strong even at this point. Has not really stalled or flooded even as 3 1/2 - 4 turns out on the mizture screw. I think I am going to be very very happy with this one.

Hi,
I've got a Savage 25 rtr on order from tower.
And was wondering what you meant by the '4 tanks through with break-in'
Do you need to use a special break-in fuel??
Or just use your normal fuel a bit richer.
Any help you can give will help.
cheers..

It means he has done 4 break-in tanks with the truck. Yes you want to run the engine richer in the break-in stage.
