Default my savage 21 turned "x"

heres my savage 21 turned x.
axial 28 spec 1s
jr racing steering servo
hitec throttle/brake servo
3 speed tranny
had rev mod but the stupid small gear in it broke into parts
x shocks, engine plate, x lcg tvp's, x roll bar.

the lights work as you can see i have them hook up to a 7.2 pack that i have mounted to an extra radio box cover.
as you can see in most pics has the stock tires on it witch i hate, now has the 4.6 ss dirt bonz tires on it which are amazing.
i have alot of parts on the way including hpi big bores, aluminum cups and 4 bevel gears for the diffs, and a ton more.

hey wanna tip? if you turn your muffle back down it will be better because the oil wont build up inside the pipe till it finaly flows out the hole. and nice truck btw, lol the lights would last long in a hard bashing lol

actually havnt had a problem with the pipe like that, makes it slot easier to see the trail of smoke, the pipe is at a slight angle downwards along with the stinger facing the ground by 10 degrees or so so no oil buildup, actully seems to run better. Its the ceap version of a mean side exhaust and its no different then the tias side exhaust pipe, with the way i drive theres no chance of oil buildup haha. And yup the lights are crazy bright love um, I'm starting to wire some LEDs up aswel

my new tuned pipe.

this pipe is amazing, all i can say is WOWWWWW
they wernt kidding when they said its loud, this thing will hurt your ears in enclosed spaces like my garage! but it sounds soooooo cool.
overall the cost was about $66 through towerhobbies, including the pipe, new couplers, 2 different types of defectors, and the 90*
fitting.
i mounted it a different way then what others were doing, instead of the plane kit thing ive seen people used i just cut the stock pipe holders square head off and drilled a hole through the tip, then took a small zip tie and threaded it through a piece of full tube and wrapped it around the pipe and through the hole in the mount. works great and its very steardy.

I have about four savage X shocks upstairs, stock ones.
Let me know if you need them, you pay shipping.

thats why we all have our own trucks so we can do what we want. i mean when i look at your truck theres ALOT i dont like and wouldnt do but its not mine, its whatever makes you happy.
the rear exit's suck, one bad landing and its getting trashed.
with the macs pipe you take function of form. watch my vids you will see.
