RE: savage x 4.6
uhhmmm, don't take your frustration out on the truck, if it won't start its something YOUR doing wrong. The savage is probably the best monster truck you can buy. my savage is by far the best truck i have ever bought and it gives me almost no problems at all. if you want help on getting it going then give more information. Is it new?

RE: savage x 4.6

RE: savage x 4.6
i don't know what in the world hpi was thinking when they made the savage x 4.6 saying it is the toughest, strongest, most durable monster truck that isn't true all my savage does it sit cause it will not start. it was the biggest waste of money i have ever spent i need to sell the piece of crap and get it out of my sight before i take care of it myself.

RE: savage x 4.6
Ok you are doing something wrong. or did something wrong...
How did you store it? did you store it with fuel in the line/tank/engine?
did you store it BDC every time you turned it off?
Is your glow plug good? Do you have the proper glow plug in it?
Is the engine tuned properly seeing its now cold out? You said you last touched it in summer...

In all honesty the engine in the savage is probably the most easy, and forgiving of mistakes nitro engine on the friggin market. If you can't get it working YOU are the issue. So don't go bashing a RC cause you have no idea what you are doing. Coming onto a savage forum, and calling the truck garbage is not going to get you a good response. IF you hate it so much sell it so someone who wants it, and knows what they are doing might get it.

RE: savage x 4.6
i am willing to sell the savage for $150-$200 with everything it has with it just to get it out of my way i am sick of seeing it every day.

darryl1980 12-17-2011 02:48 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
quite honestly my losi is alot more dependable than my savage. since i got my losi i havent even wanted to even touch my savage.

darryl1980 12-17-2011 03:07 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
i dont know how to tune a nitro engine i had my local hobby shop break in and tune the savage for me so i wouldnt have to do it myself otherwise i would have ruined alot of things.

RE: savage x 4.6
then sell it, ebay RCU classifieds get rid of it if you hate it so much you're not going to get any help if you keep whining about how bad it is, when people try to help you... it's like this...

you "my computer won't turn it, its stupid"

tech guy "did you plug it in"

you "my computer won't turn on and i hate it"

you see where this is going?

i'm sorry you're having trouple with your truck if you could tell us what you're doing and respond to syco's questions we'll help if not you're barking up the wrong tree

the lug

RE: savage x 4.6
one thing i dont understand what is BDC that people talk about?

darryl1980 12-17-2011 06:53 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
maybe i should just practice with my savage and if things get broken in the process of tearing it apart it will be a learning process for me.

darryl1980 12-17-2011 07:16 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
but then again maybe it is not a good idea for me to practice with my savage. my luck i wont beable to get it put back together. i tend to forget where things belong i forget very easy.

RE: savage x 4.6
I will warn you all darry1980 was on SC talkin smack and batin people over there and nows here he is. Hes a troll......You all have been warned!

This thread will prove what im talkin about

darryl1980 12-17-2011 08:02 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
is there anything wrong with asking questions all i get is people on my case i need to figure out what is wrong with my savage.

darryl1980 12-17-2011 08:09 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
all my savage does is turn over and will not start i checked everything that i could think of to check. what else can be wrong?

darryl1980 12-17-2011 08:15 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
the first thing that comes to my mind is the engine is shot but thats just me. maybe i can try to get a video of me trying to get it running and post it on here so you guys know what is going on.

llkoolskillet 12-17-2011 08:16 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
Really dude, its called google and both SC and RCU have search functions. LOOK IT UP!!!

darryl1980 12-17-2011 08:17 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
what if i dont know what is wrong to know what to search for?

llkoolskillet 12-17-2011 08:23 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
This is what im talkin about your batin people. This thread is a perfect example of it. Its the same thing you did on SC and who knows where else. Good Luck Dude!!!

darryl1980 12-17-2011 08:29 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
forget this all people want to do is give me cold shoulder all i am asking is for help and what do i get thrown to the curb. i am trying to find the answers to what is going on with my savage.

llkoolskillet 12-17-2011 08:58 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
Ever read the story about the boy who cried wolf.... Well you screwed yourself dude

209mark123 12-17-2011 09:21 PM

RE: savage x 4.6
You dont know how to tune a nitro so you bought one and let it sit? Sounds like your fault completely my savage engine has had zero problems. And its the same 4.6 one of the easiest engine to tune I have ever used. Instead of sitting on here bashing on it try and figure out whats wrong with it. and BDC stand for bottom dead center.

RE: savage x 4.6
Ok daryl1980. Of its just turning and not starting check to see of the glow plug lights up. Take it out of the engine and plug the glow igniter to it to see if it glows. If that works then just take it back to the hobby shop so they can get out running and have them show you what they did so you can do it your self next time. If your serious about selling it for 200.00 bucks them send me a pm (private message) and I will be more than happy to take it off your hands.
