    HPI Savage X w/ Mach 454 vs stock Kyosho Giga crusher .26 twin

    What are your thoughts on the comparison?

    Which truck is overall tougher?

    Savvy easier to fix?

    Crusher faster from a dig but savage with 1 less gear still faster overall?

    What kind of power do those stock .26 motors push out?



    My buddy has one and he needs some work to get it going again, but he seems to think it's gonna trash my savvy.

    Yes, I did smash into him tonight and I broke two a arms and he broke nothing... but, he was sitting still while I was doing 35+!

    He needs new plugs, his are old and mismatched (OS#6 and #8)

    RE: HPI Savage X w/ Mach 454 vs stock Kyosho Giga crusher .26 twin

    The gigacrusher uses twin kyosho gs26 engines which are not force 26 engines,

    i have ran gs21 and gs26 engines before and they are very easy to tune and make decent power for a rtr truck engine.

    my gigacrusher with a single 28 was pretty quick for what it weighed,

    i guess the twin gs26 engined gigacrusher will be quicker than the savage in a straight line,

    but wont handle as good or be as durable.
    Its me is that you?

    RE: HPI Savage X w/ Mach 454 vs stock Kyosho Giga crusher .26 twin

    So I tried to look up dynos and stuff but can only find the mach 427 and the stock savage motor, nothing for the GS26...

    Trying to find REAL dyno #'s, OR claimed HP #'s for the GS26s... I know the mach 454 claims 3.5hp+

    All I know is, he had his motors running, they were a tad cold, but it looked slow as hell.
