    it took me about 15 min to mod the fan and the motor cover i used my battery powered dremmel i had to sand down the fan if you look at the pictures i put up it's the right rear corner to fit in snugly and then i cut the motor cover on the outside so it holds it tight i dident even have to zip tie it to hold it cause the motor cover holds it tight.

    I finally had a turnbuckle pop off, which is scary the first time, when you see a wheel all bent to the inside!

    So what has worked to fix this problem?

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Another good solution to heat is to run the castle SCT 3800 motor.  I've run cool with it even on 3s with stock gearing all the time and I have no plans on adding air flow because its not needed.  I look at fans as a bandaid.

    If i need to get a new motor sometime i will deffinatley go for the castle sct 3800[8D].Good to see you have stuck around rob as you seem to be the only one of the early buyers of the xs still be interested in it[]

    Good idea Eclick.  Its not much different than the safety wires that are put on racing cars and carts.  For some reason in each of the fifety times my turnbuckle came off it was attached half of the time or laying next to the truck the other half.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I bought a set of RPM Revolver wheels and dyed them green, great right? No

    The guy at the LHS said they had the hex back on them, they don't. They are the "circle" type hub, so my question is, is there a hub that will work on our XS to fit these wheels?

    What do you mean by circle hub?  These are the common hubs: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXN057

    I mean the back of the wheel, it's not the hex shape to match up with the hub, does that make sense?

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Is it meant to hold a bearing?  If so they only work on the front.  Or does it have a pin that goes directly in the wheel?  Post a picture.

    I'm bummed.  Its snowed enough to stop me from driving.  Driving time will be very limited for the next few months now.  I am still waiting for some parts to get my flux running.  My 51 mph run into a guardrail broke my ESC case.  

    My next RC project is to do a tekno conversion on my hot bodies D8.

    Well 2nd run with my truck I broke the rear hub carrier, but the part is all ready being delivered today so I will be back up and running in no time.For a monster truck this truck handles turns with ease, and has a nice low center of gravity so it does not even come close to flipping as much as some of the other monster trucks I own and drove. All in all this is a great truck. I going to shoot a video of my Merv and XS Racing both on 2s and see whats faster.

    Thats a front wheel for a 2wd truck, there are no hubs that will make it work on the XS.

    The HPI scorch rims are good.  Be careful what offset you get, the stock rims are about as offset as you can get.
