Yes. I will do that eventually. I will need to hack up the body even more now to make it fit lol.

BTW you can find a good savage roller or RTR on ebay for cheap ;) I love mine so much hehe.

Looks really nice. I have but one question: How did you do the "stubby" antenna? Did you wrap the excess wire around something on the chassis?

I have a futaba 3PM fasst 2.4ghz radio system. The antenna isn't that long. but its longer than most specktrum antennas though.

That's one of the many things I like about the spektrum systems, short antennas. Can't rip an antenna off when it's inside the body.

Nice job man. I'm also in the state of rebuilding my Savage 25 :D. Did you do the mid-tank mod yourself or did you buy the kit? Also, how do you like those TVP's? I'm thinking about upgrading mine.

Hey. Yeah i bought a mid tank for it but i had to drill another hole in it to make it all fit right. For now i love the tvps even tho i have not run them yet.

It was a breeze to put together...minus the mid tank...That was a nightmare! :hehe: I would only recommend you go mid tank if you're going racing. You're standard receiver box will drop right in.

If you're really interested in getting the tvps then take a look at them here

you can fit a project box from radio shack in front of the mid tank if you did it right. it will hold the on/off, and rx very neatly.

what happened to the 4 cell rx bat you had mounted in the front, IMO they are a waste of time when you can have a good 5 cell rechargeable for $30. and faster steering to boot.

I refuse to pay 30 bucks for a 1500 or 1200mah 5 cell hump pack...

I haven't run the truck much anyways since i had to send my engine in for warranty.

When i get to go racing i will get a hump pack. But for now I'll use 4 rechargeable AAs.

There's a warranty for the engines? I really want to send mine in now, but not for the engine exchange thing.

Looks like a great truck man! Can't wait to see it running.

Not for that engine. That's the stocker s25. I had sent my sts .28 with 16 tank on it out to get warrantied. And...Well I received the sts today...:D

Install it about an hour ago...Lets just say...my back hurts! :hehe:

New pics!
