    Savage X 'roller' question

    so, the title might be a bit odd but let me explain. i've come across a Savage X "Roller" meaning, no engine, no wheels, no body. the ad states that the entire chassis without the above mentioned parts is in pristine condition and the photo's show that it is. I'm thinking of driving over there to...

    Aluminum Bulkheads

    After doing some diff maintenance today I went to put everything back together and noticed my bulkheads were broken. Both at the bottom were the skid protectors screw in, it looks like the screws almost pulled right out, and one the mounting tabs on the back end of the bulkhead broke off. Again...

    Trashed the clutch shoes.

    So... I fried my clutch. The bell looks fine, and I have a few other things to fix while I'm in there, but I'm wondering what shoes to get. Stock, alloy, or whatever. What are you guys running? Stock Savage X 17/47 gearing.

    Kind of a noob question

    So today my brother and I were bashing. He has a T-Maxx 3.3 and I was running my Savage. I've always noticed, but why is my Savage SOOO much louder? His stock 3.3 with the stock aluminum pipe, my stock whatever 4.1/4.6 with the stock nylon pipe.

    Hey guys... I have an older Savage X... I haven't been able to figure out which engine it actually is. The closest I can figure it's a 4.1 or a very early F4.6.
