Im looking into purchasing a 3 speed tranny for the Savy X 4.6 RTR, and my question is what is the difference between...

and

the actual plastic case the one for the X is much better designed and easier to work on and get into.

All savage parts are interchangeable. Your better off buying the 3spd off eBay. There way cheaper. Your also going to want to mod the tranny cause there weak in stock form. If you already have a two speed then you have all the parts needed to do the mod.
Here's the link, read it all the way thru.

Unfortunately these as i said are unobtainable. If you only knew the price of a roll of this material. You would need to change your trousers.

Not trying to burst your bubble, but yes I agree the average guy cant make them. I am not the average guy. I have a roll of carbon fiber, graphite, and kevlar sitting in my shop right now. Its all aircraft grade cause it used to fix Naval aircraft.

Skillet, I have a shop that does some of the same work except for F-16s and A-10s. You are correct it is not the average job to make the stuff. It also takes the right glue, presses, heat settings....on and on. Now I do do the work myself, I work very little in composites but correct, it is not the backyard hobby to make stuff out of rolls of carbon or kevlar and have it work correctly. But not only that..... I have been working aircraft for 18 years, since when did Boeing become a "Grade" instead of an aircraft company? Looks like the same stuff we use, sadly military stuff must be must be inferior to "Boeing Grade"

I'm curious to see how your gearing works out for you. My center diff flux XL with 12/46t is to tall for the set up. I run on 6s which is more than double or triple the power of our nitros. Either way it will be fun to watch. I certainly do hope you post a video.
