    Is that a sportwerks engine or a dynamite mach or just an aftermarket head? Totally old school!

    No way! Didn't know they had one with a head like that. Was that the 24.7 pro? I had a few of the 24.7's many years ago. They were grey crank cases, but I didn't remember the head being grooved on top like that. It's been quite a while though... memory is fading.

    Lol I hear it's all good I'm just glad people are dusting off the cob webs off these amazing machines and breathing life back into them.

    Nice truck, reminds me of the builds from the old savagecentral site. I first got into savages around 2005, the Xtm 24.7 pro or Sportwerks .26 were "THE ENGINE" to have on sav.cen.

    Okay so I got a new humpback battery for the receiver but the receiver still isn't working so I think I might need a new receiver and radio do I need servos too
