RE: Opposed Piston OPRE RC engine with tilting valves

Some interesting things on your page, I will have to do some more reading. I just graduated with my ME degree and would like to focus more towards IC engine design, good inspiration.

RE: Support your local hobby shop? ITN

Scratch that, I walked into the shop to buy plugs today. $9 a pop now, ridiculous. From now on I'm only an online customer.

RE: Question for Savox owners

I think I'll get rid of both just cause I don't want to deal with any possible issues coming up. Kind of pissed off about this, so many good reviews about these and no mention of these issues until I...

RE: Question for Savox owners

Do you have any recommendations for quality servos that will be good fit for a Savage and not break the bank/...

Question for Savox owners

Wanted to see if anyone has the same issues out of curiosity. I upgraded my Savage to the 1256tg and 1258tg, threw in a brand new HPI 1200 hump pack and hooked it up to my trusty Futaba 3PM 2.4ghz....

RE: Carbon Fiber RTR Named

Did you weight it after you put it together with the CF before the add ons like the wheelie bar and whatnot? Good looking truck.

I was surprised they weigh so little stock now.

Savage reincarnation

After running the FLM chassis for about 5 years, I finally decided it was time to do a mid tank after breaking my 3rd tank in a few months time. This truck was purchased in '04, has around 23 gallons...

086 pipe exhaust deflector

Due to the stinger design on this pipe, is there one that fits or a solution someone has come up with? I couldn't find anything searching.

RE: Trouble finding mid tank mod parts

Yes I went through 3 tanks this year and I only ran a gallon of fuel if that much, it was really pissing me off. I've gone through 5-6 tanks since I bought the Savage back in '04.

RE: Trouble finding mid tank mod parts

Sparky I have all the FLM pieces to do the conversion, I really want to use the 250cc tank for the extra run time- also it fits in the frame great and looks factory.
