Hey guys, thought I'd post up some pics of my freshly rebuilt Savage. Being that its the winter months and too cold to run it I stripped it down and replaced all the worn out/broken parts and did a few mods here and there.

Specs:
Golden Horizons aluminum bulks, front and rear
HPI ribbed tuned pipe
OS .30
HPI 3 speed tranny with reverse module
645mg steering servo
HPI cam type servo saver
4 spider diffs
motorsaver filter
other odds and ends











So whatcha think?

looks good, should be pretty fast on rough surfaces too(mulchers are awesome on grass, even if its wet!)

I like the stealth approach of using the savage .25 body tho... might worry a few folk who think its near stock... :lol:

:banana:

Dang thats clean!!!

I don't remember my Savage ever being that clean or nice tho I know it had to be. Long long ago in a previous life. Its been rebuilt often enough. (I've worn every part off it 2-3 times) Some parts have been replaced hundreds of times. I shudder to think of the cost!

Hold on for dear life, thats powers going to be brutal on the truck! :excited:

I think its all about gearing. I run 16/49 with a Mach .26 and 3 speed, and my clutches hold up great. This last set of shoes must be over 10 gallons so far, maybe more... Its when you over gear your clutch shoes have a harder time engageing. (or if your over heavy/ over tired) By keeping the truck under geared a bit your engine and all its related parts have an easy time working.

Its all about balancing the system to make everything happy. It was like I used to run heavier tires. I loved them but my dogbone breakage was sickening. I would go threw 2-4 a day! And I considered that normal! :puke: I didn't like them but I gave mulchers a try and I haven't broken a bone since. I have even been able to run my cvds again and they don't break. This is only possible because the tires are so much lighter. I can throw them around rather then the tire throwing me around...

I might have to try that after I recooperate my bank account. I was looking into the dirt bonez, or buggy wheels/tires...I am really not for racing my savage. oh, and tyrano, the savages are BEASTS for bashing. They can take soooooooooo much more than any of the Maxx trucks ever could (stock at least). It is more natural that the more beefy are slower... :D

Looks cool!

What does a ribbed pipe do compared to a smooth pipe?

I'm running the HPI aluminum clutch shoes geared 17/47 with the 3 speed and also have 16 tooth clutchbells and a bunch of spurs both 51 (or is it 52, i forget) and 49 tooth. That motor in the savage the 235, thats a .235 CI motor isnt it? No wonder your .21 can keep up, the savage is a pig compared to a maxx, power to weight your maxx must have it beat considerably. The only reason I got the ribbed for her pleasure pipe is its a single chamber pipe and thats what this motor likes according to the fellas over at savage central, ie the inside of the pipe looks like the outside. A dual chamber pipe has 2 chambers in it, when you look inside the pipe you'll see that its cone shaped with a bunch of small holes which then lead to the outter chamber shaped like the outside of the pipe.

One of the guys I showed the new pipe to, didn't lean in the direction some of you did, he called it the colon pipe. :poke: I found the mulchers to be almost overkill as far as grip in the grass. Bow ties hook up nicely just about everywhere, except wet grass. The stock tires hook up well but even with the 3 stage hard foams they are still so soft and squirelly at speed. Walmart h2 tires are great pavement tires, can't wear them down and dont traction roll in the corners either.

the mulchers will actually kick up water 'rooster tails' in very wet grass..... I can do this with a supermaxx running dual Multiplex permax 600's, with a .30 savage you should be able to drench people 10 feet away! :rolling:
