    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    here is what i found out. the pin in one of the dog bones was missing luckily the pin on the hub of my rustler was the same so i had that. and then i shimmed the diff because it wasnt quite making contact. i am putting it back together now. hopfully it works.

    Edit: and it actually does work. i havent had it outside again but i have ran it in the house and it seems to be ok. i had to go to the hardware store for a couple screws that were stipped and use the pin from the rustler but i am back up and going. sheesh what a pain in the butthole.

    Well next time you take the wheels off make sure you don't lose the pins.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    maybe i said it wrong but i didnt lose a pin. the pin that was supposed to be in the dogbone on the dif side was missing. i am not sure it was ever there. or if it was how the heck did it fall out. anyhow i ran it again outside and it did really well untill i flew off a jump and it cart wheeled so hard that the battery box came open and the battery went flying. now i have to look to see if i caused any damage

    The only pin on the diff side is inside the diff. Is that what you are refering to? The other pin is the one that sits behind the hex hub.

    there is the one behind the hex hub yes. but there is a dog bone/drive shaft as well that has pins on each end. mine was missing the pin on the dif side.

    Are you refering to the pins in the ends of the axle like these?

    I have had a problem with those pins coming out to. I ended up getting a set of hot racing CVD's I would say they work great but after about 5 packs on them one of them snapped today. I dont know if the hpi cvds are any better or if its just better to stick with dogbones.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Yeah I did and they were very nice. They said there gonna send me a dog bone and some screws that were stripped. The only trouble is they said there on back order and it will be a couple weeks before there In stock. Luckily I had a pin and I was able to procure some screws from a local hardware shop. I actually used a couple lipos now.

    I purchased the HPI CVD and they snapped pretty quickly too. I would just suggest buying stock axles since they are fairly cheap compared to CVDs.

    That motor would not fit.  I think the stock can is 57mm long and there is no more room.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Well looks like I'll be joining the xs club soon seeing as its now in kit form and i can use my own esc/motor combo with my own radio. I wonder what the price tag will be on this, i would assume much cheaper then the rtr but 200-300 range maybe? (Why i say 2-300 is i got my nitro x ss for 319, i know this was years ago but i can't see this being kit more or less the same of its rtr brother.)
