You have an old school savage 25 with aftermarket HPI plates, a K4.6 engine, dirt bonz tires, HPI tuned pipe, steel spur gear and hardened clutch bell, HPI wheelie bar, inline fuel filter on top of the one built in the fuel tank. Good little setup, the engine would be your weakest link as they were not the strongest or most reliable. Easily fixed with an upgrade to an LRP .28. You need to change the air filter to a two stage ASAP! Plus it looks like your engine might have overheated at some point, see how the bottom fins are discolored? That's how I know. Apart from that, looks like the previous owner knew a thing or two about these and had no problem tearing it down and rebuilding it. They are pretty much bullet proof trucks and newer models have only gotten stronger to compensate for the bigger engines and the FLUX of course.
