I have decided to dust off my savage and give it a new lease of life, but I've been away from the hobby for longer than i was in it, so you may consider me a noob.
way back in 2007 (i think?) I got a savage x for Christmas, I think I was about 13 or 14, bashed it a few times after running it in. after a few runs something went in the drive train. the car would sit stationary ans rev through first gear, then change in to second and shoot off uncontrollably.
Being 14 at the time i didn't have the patience or attention span to fix it. on new years day i decided that rather than have a £500 doorstop i was going to pull it apart fix it up tidy it ap and get back in to it.
when i pulled it out it was in much worse shape than i remember, Im ashamed of the neglect if im totally honest haha.
its got some surfate rust in places, however i think i may have already found the cause of the gearbox problem, the spring on the spur gear appears to be missing??
I'll upload pictures in a moment
I also have a few questions. as im missing a few screws i was going to get an RC screwz stainless steel screw replacement kit, but i noticed it was for the savage 21... will it have all the same screws as the X?
this is the kit,
also, plastic spur gear, or metal?
cheers for reading
Ok it won't let me upload the images.
