    Is an upgrade from a AE .15 engine to a Wasp .18 really worth it? Will I notice a big change?

    That upgrade would be noticable , keep in mind that you would be going from just around 1hp to 1.9hp, now I consider that a major gain in hp, dont forget that I've done this upgrade and I can tell you first hand that it works. This would only be good for bashing .18 is not legal for racing.

    Yea to keep things fair they have different classes just like electric you no stock and mod. So why arent you outside running your trucks? I'm at work finishing up a couple of things . I usually dont get on the computer on weekends.

    Since your traxxas isnt running why dont you see if the crystals well fit your savage? If not you could always put the rx box from the traxxas in the savage and use the transmitter from your traxxas.

    ooo nice thinking i just might do that in the mean time, but if it is the reciever dont you agree i should get a new one since the savage is brand new?

    The best thing that you can do if you have to spend some coin is get the Airtronics MX-3 system It's all FM for about 100. bux comes with everthing you'll need and electronics are very easy to upgrade. But as I said before the transmitter from your traxxas is a 3 channel system, match it with the rx from the traxxas and you'll be set. Also like I said before see if the crystals well work first before you start tearing into things.
