cool finaly sombody which live up north. It ain't alot of people on this forum from northern europe. So you got a savage too or what? i love mine, when it works though. Have had a lot of problems mainly because of the pullstart but now i got the picco 26 and the roto start so i enjoy every sec. when i am bashing in a rock-quarry not far from me. Any good places in Sweden or what, by the way where in sweden do you live north, south or what? i love about 30km south from oslo.

what are the advantages of a primerless tank? i thought a tank with a primer woudl amke things easier since my freind has a evader st and it is primerless and he hates it beacuse he either has to blow the fuel through the line to the engine or do as the book says. he wishes he had a primer on it.

Savage-Norway 06-15-2004 05:29 PM

RE: PICS OF YOUR SAVAGES !!
 
The thing with the primer is that the fuel has to go through a "pump" or a smaler piece of pipe before it gets out into the fuel line. Now, with a bi engine .25+ the "resistance in the primer is too big so the engine does not get enough fuel, ergo does not go as great as it would with a normal tank. The Sav 25 tank also has a rear pickup that feeds the engine with fuel even in steep hils og fast accelerations. The way a get fuel through the line, when my truck has been standing still for a while, is that i put my finger in front og the pipe outlet and eighter pull the cord a couple of times og use the rotostart for 1-2 sec.;)

Well the bb in my monster gt has a primer and it gets all the fuel it needs until the tank goes dry. It doesn't have any of the half tank leaning issues like my savages do, even with the new tanks they still do it.

Yes, even with the new tank it happens. I bought a pump/bulb that is the stock piece on the MGT and thought it would be great. It's one-way valve (pump duh) caused my engine to flood quite a bit. I am going to get the 125cc ofna tank shortly to rplace my s25 tank and header tank, I think the 2-tank setup is unsightly at best, and has its' own issues (although more liveable than the stocker)...

ah i wish i new that a lil earlier because i just ordered a new primer tank from towerhobbies since i cracked the original. curious-would this primer make the engine go lean since not enough fuel is getting to the engine?

Here's my Savage 25 with my new shell, a HPI Dodge Ram

Savage-Norway 06-16-2004 06:17 PM

RE: PICS OF YOUR SAVAGES !!
 
I don't think it will run lean but be careful to watch your temp. I had mach .26 engine and it ran fine but i was told when i bought a new one that it would have run better with a non-primer tank

I take it a truck isn't worth a 10 unless its a shelf queen then????? (no offence cousingrandpa) It obviously doesn't matter how well it handles or the speed???????????

I always thought this hobby was about having a reliable truck that is fun to race or bash, my mistake.

Savage-Norway 06-17-2004 08:37 AM

RE: PICS OF YOUR SAVAGES !!
 
Of course its cool to have a good looking truck like his but i still think the most important thing about monster trucks is the engine and car handling. Thats why atleast i spend my money on engine upgrades and things that can improve my car at the track rather than using it on alu. parts
