    The Heatsink wraps around the motor to hold it in place. I picked the fan and heatsink up off of ebay for like $18 or so.

    Ordered the Traxxas servo 2075, it's water proof and has about 3 times the torque so hopefully it will work pretty well.

    Just ordered a set of the 2.2 Badlands, some wheels, 24T pinion, 60T idler gear and HR hardened axles. Hopefully this will help it out a little.

    Ionly run 2S25c so it' can't be about me ;)

    I'm building this thing to jump so I'm probably harder on it then some people, I guess I'm just used to my durability of my Savage X.

    I know parts break but this truck has had more issues than any of my others.  The cup broke after 2 packs, I hardly consider that worn but maybe that's just me.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Got the spacers in and adjusted my shocks to 1/4 - 1/2 spring.  The shocks seem a lot better. Unfortunately one of the axle cups split in two so I was only able to run for about 2 minutes.  I'm...

    I think mine are around 3/4 of the way down.  I'll double check it and try them at 1/2.

    Sounds like a plan.

    They are on order, should be here in a few days. Now I just need to replace the servo, change the shocks and pick up some different tires for it.

    Ok, I saw the foam spacers but I wasn't sure if they were the correct size or not. I'll pick some of those up.

    That was the problem, The pinion moved forward.  Is there a part number for the spacer or just use whatever washers I can find laying around?
