Default Next Savage Upgrade?

Ok since i got my savage about a week ago I have got a few things.

Motosaver Air Filter
Fuel Filter
Dual Tank Mod Kit.
HD Dogbones for front and rear
Balooned Servos and Reciever
and Im ordering a 5 cell humpack 1100mah for sure.

Im wondering what I shoudl get next. Should I get this failsafe with my bad horsie hump pack? Or go for something else like new springs or shocks or a tuned pipe?

Hump pack im ordering

The bad horsie hump pack is great, have never ran short of power with it yet.

I would definetly do the heavy duty center shafts from HB.

I just put the RB pipe on looks and sounds good and i think it helps with the top end. But my pull starter broke while still tunning it. Oh yeah have an extra pullstart...

Also get a 16t clutchbell and a 3 shoe clutch kit, I run an ofna bell and Mugen makes a 3 shoe kit with flywheel for like 30.00 can't beat it.

I purchased my Rb pipe at Hpisavageforum.com for 59.00 shipped beast deal anywhere..

I hear the new Mugen clutches are having some slight fitting issues, where the old ones were jsut a drop in.

I just installed the shoes and flywheel and bell last night, and no problems. I ordered the shim kit but not needed actually no shims were used at all. and it aligns with spur gear and no problems..

I got the flywheel and shoes in a kit form from acehardwarhobbies.com
