I started this summer out with a bone stock savage 25 the hop-ups on it were breaks and an airfilter. By the end of the summer the only origanal things on the truck will be a motor mount and the trans. I can't believe how much money you can blow through on these. It is an addiction for sure and my winter project for my second truck is going to be even more insaine. I am going tomarrow to pick up some alum. sheet metal. I am going to custom make as much of that truck as possible just think that would be a blast. Will it still be a savage if the only thing hpi on it is bulkheads?

Yeah, I do not even want to add up all the money I have sunk into the Savage. I saw a pic of te truck when I first got it, and can not believe the difference I have made to it in over a year.

i look at it like this... if the family is taken care of and i can still afford to mess around its all good. I never even looked to see how much this build was.. kinda scared to add it up.

I'm more then able to spend whatever I want on this hobby, but, I try to keep it logical, at one point i had 4 RC's, I get involved in one and upgrade and tune and paint bodies, then i look over and the other 3 are sitting there being neglected.. so i decided to cut it down to only 2 Savages, one fullllly modified and the other slightly modified but mostly stock. This way I'm still able to run both of them and if a friend comes down we can run together, It wasnt logical for me to keep 4 RC's running modified the way they should be. I would like to get an electric so that way I can run it after hours and in public places without the death looks lol.. Vorza might be my answer since I'm lookin for a buggy, but in that case the slightly modified savage will be pulled apart for spares for the fully modified.

Definitely an expensive hobby. In my head “ohh I can grab this part for 30 bucks” then I look at my bank a week later and all 15 or those small items add up quickly. I say to myself I gotta stop, then it’s like. Ohh I have to get this part. I’m just back in the hobby after I couldn’t justify having them with 2 new little ones, but now it’s 10 years later and I’m playing catch up. I’m sure it will settle down soon as I’m ready to start rebuilding the trucks. I’m sure when they come apart their will always be the bearings here and there but I think the major stuff is out of the way....for now:)
