here area a couple of my savages
i just built another one this winter ill have to snap some pics of.
It is a re-release that I had just finished building. I had one back in 1985, and when they re-released them, I absolutely had to get one. My original one vanished long, long ago. Honestly, my favorite part of this was the build. *Warning, sappy story incoming* When I was a kid, the first one I got was a Christmas present that my dad and I built together. I bought this one a year after he died, largely for that nostalgia. Bittersweet.
As for this particular car, I didn't build this one perfectly. Partly because it had been so long since I'd built a Tamiya car, and partly because I plan to run this one and it will take some abuse. I plan on buying another Frog and doing a pristine build with that one with no plans of running it. Maybe stupid, but I want the clean relic
HPI Savage Flux HP converted to 1/5 scale.
2k worth of parts including extra motor and ESC = ZERO downtime.
Beefed up axles, not yet installed.
Note. Don't use a 17 lb 1/5 scale on the street. This was before I had the beadlocks and the foams wrapped = out of control vehicle @ 40mph > SHIN DAMAGE. LOL
I just got this little toy yesterday. It's Sprint 2 Sport with GTR 35 body. Can someone recommend a good website with drift wheels and tires? I'm trying to get different wheels with more offset. Something like the guy couple post's above me with BMW E30 body.
