    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Good find T9.  I would have bought the kit if it was available since without electronics its would be selling the best part of the truck with what looks like cool shocks.  I had mine out for the first time since before christmas tonight and all is well.  I have a new slipper and the HR center cups in it now.

    Use the shims that are already there, and move one from the diff cup side and just move it to the ring gear side.

    There are extra shims in the parts bag that comes with the truck.

    sorry i dont understand. what is the diff cup side? and is the ring gear the bevel gear? on the rear diff which i just took apart has a shim behind the pin that holds the bevel gear in place. the front diff did not have that shim. are you saying i can move that shim somewhere else?

    you know what i think is happening. i think when i put the 3 shims on the front diff it made it to where the bevel gear is touching the diff. gonna take out a shim and see what happends. the rear diff with the pre installed shim actually looks pretty good. i can push the bevel gear all the way in and it mesh's good with the diff.

    You copy the link to the youtube video and then when you go to post there is a button that says youtube click that and it does this

    [youtube][/youtube]

    then you past your link between them

    You've been following the thread for a while....It really seems to come down to complete luck in some cases and/or preventive actions in other cases...

    Drive cups, Antenna Wires, Steering Servos, ESCs, Motor's, DogBones, Loose Pinions, etc...

    If you are not willing to take the chance....or are ready to replace some of the known deficient parts....Then the XS is not the right choice for you.

    It comes down to a choice that you have to make...

    I chose to replace the steering servo, motor, gear down, and go through the entire truck before it ever had power to it...I have had my truck since September '11 on 2S and 3S...with no significant issues. No, I don't beat the crap out of my toys but, I do run them hard enough.

    I just dont want to have to be replacing parts on it every week. i'e never beat my rc's, just do speed runs, go thru dirt and maybe a small jump here and there. i dont beat the crap out of it. if i am to get it, i already planned replacing the steering servo. but i dont wanna be the unlucky one who haas to keep replacing parts. hasn't hpi made these better yet since they first came out?
