anyways. only things iam going to invest on on this car is servos, tires and some protection like Tassem mentioned. thats because funds are limited and i gotta save for the next car! Tongue

Rather spend on tires, a 3 speed tranny (lol), reciever battery, servo and a wheelie bar
Best tires are HPI goliath, cheap, huge, durable.
Servo your choice. Hitec one are nice.
Buy a 3 speed trans assembled ($89) or unassembled ($~50), which will carry your savage to 85+kmph
Try integy for a cheap metal wheelie bar, or go for a plastic hpi one for a very low price

I'll be back.

The rollcage plan went down the drain as the guy I met didn't have the expertise to replicate the design. He has however suggested somebody else who can do it. But its somewhere in Jalahalli area and can be done only next weekend.

I did an air-filter tweak as well. I had a few high quality cloth pouches from my sennheiser ear phones. These are a direct fit over the air filter and helps keep it cleaner. This means I don't have to clean the filter as often as I used to. There is no discernible difference in power either since these pouches breathe well. I got the idea from the Outerwears pre filter cover. But why spend $15 on something that you can make! I now have a three stage filter Cheesy I'll put up pics in some time..

As far as off the shelf mods go, I'll be getting two sets of stuff so that I have an off-road version and an on road version.

For the off-road version I'd like to get Badlands/Trencher Tires on some affordable beadlock wheels. I may even go the cheap but sturdy dish wheel route. But this is only after the current tires are worn. Doesn't make economic sense otherwise Wink The current tires have really flexible sidewalls and that causes the truck to flip over on hard turns. Even with the suspension tweaked its still kinda bad.

For the on-road guise I'll be getting Phaltine tires on Tremor or Blast Wheels with a GTO/Camaro or Charger Body. The suspension will be at its lowest setting. If I have money leftover, I may get the 3 speed tranny as well. The 3 speed doesn't really make sense off road for me as I wont be hitting those speeds ever!

Other mods will include BP Diff, big bore suspensions and a custom low cg xl tvp conversion by Dejan. I'm already discussing options with him so this will happen first and then the rest.

So much in store for the savage. Cheesy

This is what i would suggest for the savage..

Stage 1:

RRP Spur and clutch bell or HPI ventilated clutch bell (47,18 combo good place to start)
Servos (torque,speed set)
Reciever battery 6v 1200mah and above

Stage 2:

BP Diffs 43/13
Racing clutch shoes, 1.1 springs
Buku power pipe

Stage 3

Big bore shocks
Savage race conversion set
HPI UV joints with 17mm conversion


Chassis is optional, stock tyres are good enough for bashing and offraoding. look at the proline bow ties or nubz for racing. I would highly recomend a servo upgrade. We have modded many savages,  the above are the most essential and worth while to do. The roll cage doesnt really help too much. We have the RC boyz cage if you need it.

That looks like a good plan. I've already got the hump pack for the servo and receiver. And the servo is the next in line. Does Manoj have stock of the RRP Spur and Clutch Bell?

For the pipe, I think I'd get one from ofna. Cheaper plus a lot of good reviews. If I spend more, I would prefer to go for the ERCM pipe instead of the buku. A lot of people on the Savage forum vouch for its performance. What do you think?

I've already asked my friend to get me the big bore shocks so that's taken care of.

And do you think I need the race conversion set unless I plan on taking the car to the track??
