a few words/thoughts on a savage;
crashs id rate excellent have had many high speed cartwheel rolls and end overs no broken parts the shock towers and a arms are great.
servos are garbage
brake is garbage
2speed trans is finicky
broken dog bones [stock ones. have chromed ones but would rather brake dogbones than gears
s tripped plastic spur gear
installed hot bodies pipe and raced stock savage on asphalt and on baseball diamond high end is faster than a stocker

Default hubs

I have the picco .26 and have not broken anything. I have the HD dog bones. I tighten the nuts for the wheels everytime I fill up. It's kind of a pain in the rear, but I have yet to strip them. I also glued the hex in with epoxy. I just used a little bit, and then bolted the hubs up. The epoxy takes up the diff between the hub and hex nut. Works pretty good so far. I did break the bell crank for the throttle tonight. I just made one from a old one I had. I was going to buy some big joes, but decided against it cause right now I am not breaking anything and I think with the extra weight and traction I would start to mess stuff up. I run my slipper ever so slight loose, it will still wheelie, but not as bad only if it has pretty good traction, where as before when it was tight, it would wheelie just about anytime.

Yeah, you better replace the bell crank. In fact, when you place your order for all those parts you been breaking, get me the $3 bell crank...hehehe.
I guess flying airplanes came in handy...having that bell crank. I sucks living in a small town without a hobby shop....
