Can't find a photo of my X at the moment.

Hallo Leute!

Kann ich mit einem HPI Savage XL Oczane 1/2 "Offset fahren, ohne Teile umbauen zu müssen? Das Standard-Umbauset von HPI auf 17 mm habe ich bereits bestellt!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe

Gotta say, the hpi dirt bonz tyres are a very pleasant surprise! I took the truck out to the local bmx track which is made of hardened dirt. Truck held up much better than I expected. Also expecting good results in softer gravel/dirt with them but still yet to try them out.

Recently put the super HD extended stubs on my X and modified another set of 17mm extended hubs to use to install a set of trencher 3.8's:




I had geared down to 16/47 before installing these, but it wasn't enough. I then fried my pink brakes during the first run with these tires. Last night I installed a pair of FullForceRC CF disks and a 15T... the bell rubbed on the disks. I looked at the gearing chart for the savage and it appears 16/47 shouldn't have fit either. Kind of makes me wonder if it was also rubbing on the disks which is why the rear one exploded.

I raised the engine with 2mm shims and ground a bit out of the chassis rail to clear the engine mount bolts on the engine flange. Now has 15/47 with plenty of clearance between the cb/disks.
