Savage X 4.6 Wheelie Action

September 9th, 2010 No comments

I have a couple HPI Savage X 4.6 RC Trucks. When I purchased the first truck, nearly 5 years ago, I had a problem keeping the front end down. It happened so easily that I eventually purchased a wheelie bar for the truck.  Obviously quite a bit of time has passed since I first purchased the truck. Since then I purchased a used Savage X 4.6 for me since the first was actually for my lovely wife.  The truck that I purchased used for me had an Axial .32 Spec 1s motor.  It has always idled a little bit erratically, but I didn’t think much about it.  It has always been pretty fast, but I’ve never been able to get it to wheelie like the new 4.6 did when it was new.  The 4.6 had worn a lot of time on it, and it wasn’t pulling wheelies any more either.
