Default Savage Racer Question......

For racing on a dirt offroad track what do most of you recommend for a tranny. 2 speed or 3 speed? I'm looking to be competitive and wanting the best for my truck!

Thanks

I would go for the 2 speed...less changing IMO better for racing and less hassle to adjust shift points.

you wont probly even get to third gear if running on a smller track. you would need a pretty big track with some big straights for it to even get to third gear imo.
a guy at our local track raced his savage ast weekend and he had just the two speed and he did pretty well.
hope this helps

Here is a pic of my Savage X Racer. I used the 2 Speed Tranny but I change the spur and CB depending on what track I'm running.. Like they said before you wouldn't even hit 2nd gear and you really don't need to add the weight to your truck

Hey DJ what are you running for shocks and shock towers on your racer? I am currently setting up an X for racing using FLM low tvp's, front mount tank, aluminum racing rear uprights, and hot bodies cv joints up front. I was going to use aluminum shocks with limiters inside to lower the ride but open to better suggestions. What do you think?
