Yes the roto start will work on your savage but you will have to do some dremel work on your rear bulkhead brace to get the wand into the motor.

there are pics of what needs done in this thread on savage central. you may have to register to view it. lots of good info on there as well about the .28

Thanks for the info. I'll look thru the thread and see if I can find pics of the modification. While I like the power the Picco .26 puts out, I hate it's refusal to stay tuned and it's inability to reliably start.

the .28 should fit anywhere a bigblock.21 fits the length and width is the same Sorry I cant say wether the drivetrain will handle it or not.

you can get a backplate for the .28 motor to make it non pullstart.

Anyone knows about any experience of a STS .28 pull start on a Jammin Truggy ? ... the idea is to run on the unlimited monster class ...

thanks,

I know that two of our customers are using the .28 in the jammin truggy and are very happy with performance. I dont know all the details except that they have told me they really like the motor.

gear up...meaning use bigger CB with the 47T spur or get the new steel spur from HPI. Use higher visc diff fluid 10K or more. and ready yer roll cage or spare engine head. it willy like crazy. the torque is crazy...so be warned!
