That was cool! That was one hell of a drop. Did you break anything?

That's an awesome display - hat's off to you!

Badger would have been proud of a jump like that.

Yeah, I noticed that too - but in all fairness it was dropping like a stone! I'm amazed to see a Revo survive that kind of stunt with so little apparent damage.

Yes, I did break the rockers but it was caused by me not changing the push rods back to stage 1's when I changed the rockers. The longer rods literally pushed the rockers right off the posts...Thanks for the compliments..

I really dont think a Savage would break from something like that, like you think...trust me, if I was there, I would try it with my savage, it isn't all about speed, but the torque and inertia, and velocity...very nice job man...The savage is really durable, from what Ive seen just as much as, if not more than the Revo...

Pop over to Savage Central - you'll see videos of Savage's regularly doing jumps like that (and bigger) and experiencing no failures whatsoever - even when landing on the flat. Savages are heavier than the Revo because their parts are far more 'burly' and stronger. Revo owners do occasionally break hubs, ball ends, wishbones etc through normal track use, let alone extreme jumping.

So Savages are tougher, make no mistake. On the other hand, Revo's are more nimble.

Fair play to the guy jumping the Revo here - it shows just how tough the Revo can be and also how the Revo can bash just as 'hardcore' as any other MT out there.
