    Two questions on savvy x. brakes and bevel gear

    Hello everyone! I was wondering, are the fiberglass brake disks better than the dual steel brake disk on the savage x? I have a savage x SS with the dual steel brake disks. they work decent, but if the fiberglass is better that will definately be on my list of parts to order. My second question is about the diff shims. My bevel gear got chewed up last year before the end of the season. My question is, if i order just the bevel gear itself (yes, it'll be the BP one), do the shims come with it? if not, is there a part number for the shims?

    The dual fibreglass brakes are a lot better than the steel xss brakes,

    You will also need to buy the hex shaped drive cup coming out of the transmission from a savage xl,
    As the one that holds the xss steel discs is a lot smaller than the hex in the centre of the fibreglass discs.
    Its me is that you?

    Bevel gear, are you talking about the little plantary gears inside the diff? If so you can reuse the shims you already have
    ERCM Picco/ Endbleed power should be the only combo allowed in a Savage.

    not the gears inside, but this one http://hobbyproinc.com/store/product...FS-oPAodlxIA-Q . one side of that gear has the teeth broken off. took me a long time to break something on the X, and it was a diff. truck is crazy tough.

    RE: Two questions on savvy x. brakes and bevel gear

    That is more than likely side play between the crown, large gear, and the pinion, smaller gear. You need to get a shim that will fit between the bearing and the crown orshim the bearing away from the housing. If you look at my build project located here at RCU and look at the picture of the differential and all the parts you can see the large shim. That is the shim I use to move my bearing and crown away from the housing. It is a thin shim and I found it by taking my bearing and crown into the LHS and they found some shims that would work for me. They need to be thin so regular washers won't work. What is happening is the gears arent meshing properly. If you were to assemble it without the shim you can grab the whole differential and try an wiggle it side to side, it shouldn't move. What you are trying to achieve is to get all the play out of the gears. Be sure that you have everything super clean when reassembling as any contaminants make a difference. I hope this helps?
