Check the bearing in the tranny the 2nd shipment of savages have been having this problem allot.When you say new shoes do you mean clutch shoes or tires?If it the tires check to make sure the pins are still in the wheel hub and the hex nuts aren't stripped out.If it's the clutch just double check to make sure you installed them correctly.

yea i was talking about tires. And i already made sure that the pin is in the hubs. Could it possibly be because of the mixture? i am just guessing because i tried to lean it out the other day!!

Thanks, drew

Have you tried tightening the slipper clutch , my frien had the same prob and we took the whole truck apart , checked the differentials and the like and the only problem was slipper clutch too loose. good luck

look at page 31 in the manual. Under step 28 tighten nut Z684 a little. The tighter that nut gets, the tighter the clutch gets and the less it slips. The looser that nug gets the more it slips.

To tighten the slipper just tighten the nut that holds the spur gear in place all the way then jusy back it off 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn.Make sure you check the one-way bearing in the tranny also teh newer savages have them and they slip after a while just clean it with some nitro blast or wd40 and hopefully that should fix the problem.
