    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Hope they arrive OK...

    Hope you could enjoy your XS soon....

    BTW:

    For backup I bought almost everything at HobbyKing....until now, no problems with their products...and most of the times...the buckup ends like defenitive...

    For what I have read...(please don't kill me for this, I have just read it in several forums)...motors..chose USA brands...ESC..choose china brands...until now...no problem with my "made in China" Turnigy ESC (150Amps, working on 6S on a Hyper ST brushless converted)

    I love my Mamba Max Pro...but for the price I could have 3 of the others....

    well my SV2 and vapor pro are under warranty for a year. if a year from the purchase date of my flux, if the vapor pro still sucks (god that would just be sad) and they dont cover it after a year, i will just want my money back and buy off brand

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Well, finally got my Vapor Pro yesterday. Put it in and put the truck back together. the mounting is different than the first, so i just used double back sticky tape andscrewed down the fan protector to keep it on the mount.All works fine for now. I'll probably get more running in this weekend. My passenger rear wheel has some serious toe/camber angle on it and it wobbles like a mother, so im going to see if i can shim it to straighten it out.

    Well the replacement esc has been a success so far. put about 4 runs on it so far and no issues. i would have put on more runs but it was raining all day sunday and i dont run my rc's in water at all so i lost some runs there. but im glad to be running the flux again

    Funny they sent me two Q base esc's also, just spun it on ebay though, figured as long as I had to wait for a replacement I might as well get something out of it.  Just goes to show how good HPI customer service is, they feel soooo bad they give ya two,lol

    Lol either that or they screwed up and didn't mark that one was already shipped to us. Oh well, saved us money and time for a replacement when the replacement one goes.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Hey fellas. I just finished my XS SS build this weekend and test drove it today and I need a little help. I put a Castle Sidewinder 4600 combo in it and I'm having some major heat issues. This is the old SW 2 pole 4600 system. I've never overheated the motor so I know that's not an issue. I'm running the 60T spur with the 24 tooth pinion (the lowest gearing setup possible provided with the kit) and my motor is hitting 180°F in 5 minutes run time on 2s lipo in short grass. Are there any companies out there that make a motor mount with slots rather than just holes in it so you can run whatever pinion you want. I need to gear this thing way down in the 15 or 16 tooth pinion range to keep my temps in check. I also have a castle motor fan that came with my SCT Race Pro system I bought for another build that I'm not using but I'd like to get the temps down further before I go putting on fans. Any help is appreciated.

    Here's my pics. And yes I know my right side tires are backwards. I didn't put them on right after I taped the tires and started gluing. It was late when I did it

    HPI makes an aftermarket motor mount that allows you to use different gearing.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Has anyone experimented with shimming or modifying the rear upright to fix the camber/toe issue? I've shimmed the a-arms to remove the slop but the uprights still have a lot of play in them.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Sometimes when I'm running with my savage, she stops suddenly.
    This occurs after about 15 or 20 minutes or more. It depends. I'll look the same esc and all lights blinking
    What can this be? what's the problem?

    HR makes a motor mount....

    It also cames with some heat deflectors (¿? is that written in the correct way?)

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I've seen the Hot Racing motor mount but it looks like the same configuration as the stock plate only with added heat sinks. But does it allow you run a smaller pinion than a 24 tooth?

    T9Dragon. Do you have a link to the one made by HPI I can't seem to find it anywhere. I looked on their site but the only optional parts it shows for it is a 4300kv motor, wheelie bar, and a 2.4ghz controller, no motor mount. If all else fails I could just take the pencil grinder to the stock one and slot out one side so I can run absolutely any pinion I want.

    Actually the ESC cooler is not working anymore. Had not noticed that. 

    The wire used for it is the last channel on the receiver? It may be a problem in welding? 
    it is possible to open this esc and change the cooler?

    Or do I try to do an air duct with a hose? hahaha

    LOL Ram Air! The wires on the cooling fan to the connector are pretty flimsy. Im not sure how you would be able to fabricate a tube to cool the esc efficiently. you would have to be hauling to keep air flow moving to it.

    It's 25x25x7. The stock fan doesn't have the normal tiny fan connector. It has a standard servo lead. Look on pg 118.

    Does anybody have a fix for the slipper nut backing off? No amount of blue locktite or losilock will keep mine in place. I'm afraid to put the red on it. Is there is a lock nut that can be used?

    Thanks,
    already bought one of these, was the only one I found in my country.
    And I opened the esc, I forgot that I'd lose the warranty.

    There is no reason it should be coming off even with loctite on the threads. Check your threads for cross threading and dirt/grime. If you can find the right size one, I would use a lock nut and possibly a lock washer.

    I know it shouldn't, but it does it about half way through the second pack every time. Right now it has new clutch pads, new drive cups and new slipper nut/spring.
