Well I got myself a pair of HPI Savage 25's today and I'm chuffed, it's been over 5 years since I last had one of these. Good strong bit of kit with 8 oil filled shocks and 2 speed gear box.

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

This is the top of the heat sink. Note the small glow plug (like a spark plug)

[Linked Image]

All electrics at the front, 2speed gearbox in middle, engine at the rear.

[Linked Image]

8 oil shocks (will be replaced with aluminium ones)

[Linked Image]

Underside. 2 prop shafts from the bottom of the 2 speed box and a single disk break for all 4 wheels.

[Linked Image]

These are a good size car, big enough to climb over thing but small enough to store and move around place to place smile

[Linked Image]

Look out for me and Vango as he has the same car too smile

so I head to my local park to test my cars top speed using an Iphone App, I forget to take my Gopro HD2 with me so feel a bit bummed, then I find my car is stuck in 1st gear Sad even more bummed.. then some idiot parks up on his bike and tells me to go somewhere else!!! *censored* now I know this guy "Kev" from a local bike shop cos I did my Bike training with him. I don't think he realises that I know him and he gets right in my face kicking off and reaching inside his pocket as if he was gonna pull something out? enough is enough so I push him away and decide to go home. then I see them whilst driving home so I decide to go speak to his boss.

I doubt you would see many kids with those kind of cars.
Even if it's true so what? It's called doing what you enjoy and not harming anyone
