since there seems to be NO new savages made recently and all the ebay chopshops seem out of savage parts
there seems to be none for sale that i could find.

YAY


Thanks Olds97
I been searching and searching on ebay for that rear one(first link). there are quite a few front ones available, but that longer, rear one is RARE. I had enough of them to cover the frames i have on-hand but i think i shipped them out last week in a mixed meat parts lot, unknowingly, so i am pretty bummed to have to buy new parts just to resell.I am trying to take a 20K habit down to 2-3K lol

I was just going to buy these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/162171710792?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

put them on one of my "keeper" savages and use that shaft

As far as ebay search. tried every part# and name i could think up and no results that matched.
Maybe my ebaysearch is broken!

Do all new SavageX's come with the heavy duty flux drivetrain now?
All 3 of my savage trucks have long been converted to either flux or Xl drivetrains.

My ass too poor to be able to afford a new in the box RC

Those almost look like Mips shafts ,so you might see if Mip makes what you need!
Sometimes you might find them on auction!...:cool:

Those MIP style shafts you listed require a different end for the cup on the diff, fyi. That bone is only half the part.

I don't know what new savage's come with. I bought mine used and it had the 8 shock setup and small outer axles/cups with machined steel small tooth diff gears.

I've upgraded mine quite a bit.
Sintered BP diffs
Super HD outer bones/diff cups/wheel axle cups
LRP30
LST HT Pipe with HPI's curved header (vs the one with a nasty kink right off the engine.
4 plastic big bores with hellfire white springs and I think 50 weight oil
T-bonz rear skid w/ wheelie bar
OFNA slider linkage mod
Hitech 985MG t/b servo, some high torque digital JR steering servo
Dual pink fiber brakes
RPM center skid
OFNA 125cc tank to do away with the HTL issue

I ran an old HPI/HB rear center CVD in it for years, but after putting in the 30, I kept snapping the pin in it, so went with a dogbone instead.
