If the savage is giving you crap, you might want to wait on that revo. Just let them work the bugs out first. Oh, and as far as the release date, they still say it ships on the 20th. If that is in fact the truth, then they must already have the Revo here in the warehouse in the states. If they are still waiting for a boat, then you can expect a 2 month delay. One funny thing my LHS pointed out, was that the 20th is a Sunday! Kinda hard to ship them on a SUNDAY!!! It looks like a really nice truck though. My LHS is getting in over 25 on the first shipment. They have reserved about half of them.

Well, if REVO comes on the 20th, then I'll eat my hat, no, I'll eat both of my hats.
I'm waiting forward to REVO, I would eat even my three hats if I have to.

lol you guys may very well be right, it may be user error. though i have three nitro trucks and i can keep my rc10 and my sportmaxx(CRAP) tuned but my savage doesn't want to start and it runs real hot. i already look for air leaks in the backplate and cooling head. i have put over $1000 dollars into it and keep on having trouble...i am thinkin about selling my baby...

Yeah, my brother had a starting problem with his Savage too. The fuel just wasn't getting to the engine. He used the Roto-Start system so it would be easier.

Just curious, but in that time you spent 1000 dollars on your savage...You never upgraded the motor?
