Default Which Savage Model Is this?

Just got this in trade, and the manual inside the box (user printed manual) says Savage 3.5, but I can't confirm that by pictures as of yet. Does anyone recognize which model this is?

I need to order some parts and want to make sure I order them for the correct version....

Thanks!

Here are a few pics:

Rear End:

Looks like it's got FLM TVPs installed as well. So that would be why I couldn't match the chassis up to any pics.....

I'd guess 21 because of all the Phillips screws but I thought they had a single disc brake ?

easiest way to tell is to pull out a diff and look at it.

That is a Savage 21/25 with a Savage X radio box (really threw me off). I agree with MotoGod and I think that is an FLM chassis and motor plate. That dual disc brake set-up is upgraded from the single disc, it's possible this was an SS or an LM but more likely someone put the brakes on there. An LM or the ATV Savage had upgraded brakes but I think they both also had 3 speeds.

Both the Savage 21 and 25 and the original SS had 2 gear diffs so taking that apart would be no use.

What parts do you need for it?

That's is an FLM ext chassis and motor plate. It's a mix of different era savage parts for sure.

Sweet! So I got a Savage Mutt! ;-) I'm going to need at least rear diff parts. It's crunching pretty badly. Could just need to be shimmed....but I'll pull it apart one of these days to see what's up.

It's definitely some era of FLM TVP since it's stamped Fast Lane ;-)

If you need to replace the diffs, use diffs from the savage flux. Much much stronger.

And also the savage 25 got upgraded to the 4 gear diffs, not 2 gear like someone above said.

And all savages even to this day have Phillips hardware. That's a non point I read above that also stood out to me.

I own a savage 25. It had 2 gear diffs

Edit: http://www.hpiracing.com/kitparts/832/

Part 86032 is the old 2 gear diff set. Notice the lack of a notch on the spider gear shaft.

I replaced quite a few diff cases before hpi released the 4 gear set up
