2S lipo to put in my transmitter, DX5C:


Got creative with the wiring and made an adapter to use a 20W balance lead charger I have without removing it. Used to use 2 pins to charge my NiMH's without removing them, but wanted to give a lipo a try in it since they were starting to not hold a charge very long anymore.

I bought these over the weekend. Found them on Craigslist for $50 for all. The motors were frozen up, but it was due to them being gummed up. A little solvent loosened up all the motors. It also came with a two 3-speed conversions and a reverse module, both for the Savage, and a box of tires and a box of parts. They didn't come with controllers or a body for the Savage. Either way, $50 was a smoking deal. I couldn't believe it. I had to confirm the price with the guy. He was clearing out his garage and hasn't driven these in a few years.

I know one is an HPI Savage, one is an HPI RS4, but I am not sure what the 3rd one is. I do know its a cheap Chinese model. Can anyone tell me what model the Savage is? I think it's a 4.6.

You might be able to see on the starter housing or side of the engine as to the motor size. The 21 and 25 looked a lot alike. The OG 21 had only 2 spider gears in the diffs. The 25 had 4 spider gears and a better 2 speed gear/pawl machanism in the trans. Not sure what else set them apart visually.
