I don't have experience with buggies or truggies

I know that the savage x has easy access diffs, tranny, spur, shocks, etc, etc..

LOL LOL thats funny

if a savage is easy to work on then work on truggys and buggys can be considered playing

btw the savage is considered one of the hardest RC's to work on other than minis

HMm I find that hard to believe. Considering I'm a total NOOB to Nitro, and to anything Mechanic, I find it a breeze to work on the Savage X (keep in mind the newer Xs have some easy access features). To get to anything in the truck takes less than 5 minutes. But then again, I'm a noob

I also agree 100% that everything you guys are saying about the guys that help, etc.... I definitely believe that to be true.

My only point was when there is a guy that is post #1 getting attacked especially when it was apparent he was frustrated. That is all. I just don't want that guy or girl to decide to jump from the hobby alltogether right off the bat.

Some new people might take it the wrong way, some might not. However, when you solve his problem and he replies on post 3 or 4 as to thanks for the help.......lol.
sorry, but we are not all going to hold hands and sing kum-bi-ya

Sokar,
I spend anywhere between $150 - $200 a month just on maintenance items. This isnt counting money spent to race, fix something that breaks, or just buying spares to have in my box. My suggestion is if money is tight the nitro scene probably isnt for you. You cant expect to buy something and never have to spend money to keep it going especially if you are bashing with it. Thats when they take the most abuse. When you come across as someone belly-aching you will get these type of responses.. I get bored if I have nothing to fix and thats usually the case because I did some research prior to my purchase.

Sokar , Be patient ...watch the other guys at the track, you must understand if you want to master this hobby you can do it. the trick is to drive slow or buy a bunch of parts and spend most of your time making repairs. As far as pull starts I will not ever have one, ....you must get a bump box. When you go to the track to practice have a friend stay on the track to flip for you and have him keep your fuel tank full before it runs out. So many people run out of fuel right in the middle of their learning curve.If anyone on here tells you they were never frustrated enough to quit when they first started I'll buy you a wig box.It is part of initiation.
