Yes the trackdoes need help but as a young club we do the best we can and the rocks that are coming though the surface clay are being removed slowly, slowly then with our new 15,000 litre water tank and grey water we will get it right long term....melbourne off road remote control club in sunshine

WOW , that does seem too handle very good for a Savage right from the box ! Looks like the Brushless E REVO has some good competition .

It does look really soft stock though a change of springs and shock oil are needed IMO .

i agree the truckpulls hard and turns ok but needs a little help in the shock department, stock its 15 oil allround so 30 front and 35 rear to go in and remove some pre loaders to give it a littlelower stance i think would help.

Default Streched And widened Flux

I got a Savage Flux on Saturday. I ran a set of packs. In the mean time my Friend Lucas was already Hacking an Xl Conversion kit to fit the ESC and motor/trans. And yes it worked. So needless to say ,after the first batteries were done, I too hacked an XL chassis to fit. now it is even more like its big brother the Savage XL. With a set of OFNA 100% offsets, and proline badlands, this thing does not even flip at full throttle on pavement. It is sick. When I get my camera back from my buddy I will post Pics
