I've just recently put a LRP .32 on my savage xl and I absolutely love it. I dont have many hours on it right now but the break in period was a peace of cake and the couple of tanks that I've run through it since has also been awesome. My 5.9 was a leaky motor and I got fed up with trying to seal it, so I ordered the LRP. If this motor continues to run this good then LRP will have my business, at least for my xl motors.
