    RE: Since my last Savage was stolen only a few months after I built it its time for a new one……..

    Welcome home TxRoadRunner !

    For that kind of cash you can get better servos with better torque and speed.

    Ask other people what they run for sevos and
    compare them to your choice and what they will cost

    I really like my Team Associated’s XP Digital Servos
    DS1313 Hi Performance Digital Servo (throttle) $74
    DS1015 Hi Torque/Hi Speed Digital Servo (steering) $89

    RE: Since my last Savage was stolen only a few months after I built it its time for a new one……..

    I have never seen a white German Shepard...are they their own kind or are they bred?

    I've had 3 of the neighbor dogs go psycho over my truck. Two were on leashes and plain stupid...I cam up to one and I thought he had a short leash, but he gets right up to it and I was scared that he was going to bite it so I throttled it real quick leaving him a nice little nitro scent to sneeze through . The other leashed dog just pulled his owner around quite amusingly. Third dog was a Husky looking dog that had no leash and chased the thing through a yard or so...then I returned the favor and scarred the crap out of him while I chased em'. [>:]

    RE: Since my last Savage was stolen only a few months after I built it its time for a new one……..




    My apologies to the original post, I certainly derailed this thread! Anyway, two black shepherds can have a white pup or two conventionally marked shepherds can have a white pup if the gene is present in their bloodline. There are several breeders now that breed them, but the Germans used to kill them and their mother trying to get the gene out of the bloodline. Generally they are taller in the rump, have gentler dispositions and do not have the hip dysplasia problems. That is Bud Boy and his baby he found while we were hiking one time. I knew he had something when he took off like a rocket. Thankfully, it was not a black and white striped cat. He is not nearly that calm and gentle around the Savages.



    Bud driving and Mr Attitude "Sir" in the middle. The one on the floor is "Missy" probably hoping she could find something to eat on the floor.



    Bud Boy thinks this place has Savage written all over it! Bud

    RE: Since my last Savage was stolen only a few months after I built it its time for a new one……..

    Thanks Mike, I guess I could send you a couple of dogs and a couple of Savage XLs, maybe a couple of gallons of fuel and a couple of spare glow plugs.... In about 30 days, you would be wanting to return the whole mess.... They are like owning a Savage, it is not always nice and peachy....



    Boys will be boys, like Savages will be Savages and every once in a while, you wonder if you should bring them home....



    What kind of old Chevy do your boys like?



    The blue one is gone, it wound up on the roof too many times and ripped the roof off... The rest are still floating around here someplace....[8D]

    RE: Since my last Savage was stolen only a few months after I built it its time for a new one……..

    First I want to say THANK YOU to all the service people and just wish the government was as committed as our service people!!!!!!!!!!

    For steering anything with dual ball bearings, metal gears with a torque of 200oz and a speed of .13 or faster should work fine.

    My house was broken in to abut 10 years ago to the tune of over $10,000! As you know insurance never covers it all and cannot replace the things that have been in the family for 100 plus years.

    Roadrunner-That sucks that someone went garage shopping on you. Check the local pawn shops, stolen stuff usually makes its way to them.
    Once you go BL and lipo, you will forget about nitro.

    Sounds great to me, we can head for Brett65 country, or the OKC area, or any other spot you know of. I would like to get my junk around some other guy's trucks and see how they compare.....not to mention all the fun and broken parts we should be able to create.... Glen

    Only catch is that you have to bring the Dogs and My grand Kids get to come too. They are really loving the RC stuff right now and would just be heart broken if they did not get to come.

    Who else is up for this bash weekend? It sounds like it could be a hell of alot of fun.

    RE: Since my last Savage was stolen only a few months after I built it its time for a new one……..

    Bud would be okay, Sir is an anti-social jerk and cannot be trusted around strangers. He is great with young kids, but if you wear baggy pants, are a large male, wear a hat, a uniform, walk funny, loud when you approach, or if for some other reason he does not like you, if you get too close to his people, his truck, his home, he can be a real jerk.... and he is very quick... So, one of the dogs could come, Mr Deer Lover there, Buddy, he is great with everybody. I hope this works out, because I would really enjoy it. Glen

    okay i love dogs and i think our men in arms do a great job and if i wore a hat i'd take it off to ya.... but this nice man would like to know about servo's so i poped over to tower, and based on my experence and personal preferances, i'd go the S9351 just cuz not too much differance in .11 to .13 speed and the extra 65oz of TQ will be welcome

    Hi Tech HS 7955TG 333 oz @ .15 sec for steering and a Futaba BLS 451 for throttle/brake 147 oz @ .10 sec... Unless you plan on being like me and water bashing, then just trash some stock ones. Glen

    That hitech servo is HOSS. 333 oz?

    I have the futuba s9351 on my maxx and love it... has enough cajones to slide at any speed.

    The futuba also comes with a 1 year warranty and a metal case.

    Don't know much about the hitech. If it's got a decent reputation for durability then go with the hitech. Little slower but torque is good...

    LOL, How can you forget that monument of a racetrack? Just north of hwy 114 on FM156, I'm sure you've passed through there many times going from Dallas through Roanoke on your way to Rhome to hit hwy 287 to go to the panhandle!

    TxRoadrunner, Thanks for your service to our great country and helping us remain strong!

    And most of all, good to see you back in the Savage community again! [sm=thumbup.gif]
