Default Want a Savage X

Hey all. I am selling all of my electric RC stuff (Ofna LX2E, batteries charger etc.) in hopes of getting a new Savage X next year. I have wanted a nitro for a while since I had a Savage .21 back in the day. Are these any good? Reliable? Anything I would need to upgrade right out of the box so i'm not down and out after a few runs?

umm upgrade the rotostart to a pullstart

Seriously I found the rotostart to be pretty bad, and ruined a few of my bashing outings when I had it. Was way more reliable on a pullstart

Outside that umm if the rear knuckles give you trouble the Integy HD uprights are pretty decent.(yes I said Integy, and decent in the same sentence) My X has no issues with the rear knuckles, but the .25 I turned into a flux the rear knuckles the tierods kept popping so I went the integy route.


One note last HPI engine I had the factory default settings were WAY too rich to break it in as my engine only hit like 180 degrees( i only remember it cause it was so low) on a hot summer day. I had to lean it out to get it up to the proper temps.
