i think they are kinda big.. and gas hogs. lol.
how did u make a fuel shutoff valve? Did u just buy a little valve, and cut ur fuel line, and stuck it in? i didnt think they made them that .... wait nvm i have seen one small enough before.

cool I'm thinking of a savage as well, the pede just doesn't cut it for me.

hey i say get it it the coolest truck next to the pede it is fast and tons of torque great for offroading and big jump and just what you do iread your post and it is cheaper than the titian i think it is cooler to
as for the valve i was cleaning my garage and found a air valve for a fish tank and just plugged it in and now i dont have to runall the gas out of the tank

Well, I like the savage, but I would buy a T-MAXX anyday over the Savage. I know several guys who have them and they are NOT happy with them. For one reason, LACK OF PARTS AVAILABILITY.... all the hobby shops around here, 250 mile radius, do not carry any parts for a savage. While you can rebuild a tmaxx piece by piece. Just what I have heard, i would not own one, too bid, drinks gas, but do have alot of power. but Pull starting is for the birds...... go with a tmaxx, you will be happier...

nitro phreak the only reason u cant get parts yet is because the savage is so new i dont know for sure but i imagine that when the tmaxx came out there was a lack of parts and alsdo pull starters are better then the sleeazy start the savage is cooler then the maxx and i havent broken anytihing yet its awsome all around and all the hobby shops in fort worth all have savage parts on order and another thing i like is the customer service it is one of the best for instance i wrote a letter asking a question and the guy at hpi wrote me back in bout 20 mins

Dont get me wrong, the savage is a FINE truck, each person has their own preference of what brand of truck they like best. Mine is traxxas. This is only my preference. My opinion is based off of ACTUAL SAVAGE OWNERS who DO NOT LIKE the savage. They (3 seperate people..) have all problems with the truck and have had a HARD time getting service on them. Yep, its fast as heck, yep, it has tons of power, but pound for pound, the nitro stampede is a HECK OF ALOT FUNNER to drive. it takes more SKILL and precision to operate it and control the npede. Thats why i bought one... Who knows, I may even own a savage one day.. I like ANYTHING nitro powered. Right now, i just prefer Traxxas... Race On!!!!
