Ozdork,


jjjrules just bought one. I don't believe he has fitted it yet though (I lost that bet).


He is going to do a review when he is done.


Regards,

No I haven't built it up yet as I'm still waiting for a Nova racing head and aluminium clutch shoes (waiting 3 weeks so far). As soon as they arrive it's straight to the shed and I'll give you all the full blah. ozdork - I can send you some pics of the kit if you like - they were on a previous list I did.

I would seriously not recommend the truckzilla to ANYONE.


It has got to be the worst thing ive ever seen regarding a savage. The kit itself is alright but for the same amount of money you could buy better quality wheels, tires and TVPs. It's the engine that a lot of people have issues with.


Read this link it has the WHOLE lowdown on the kit and is rather interesting to read. JJJrules, i hope you do not suffer the same problems as Rustler66 in the thread.

Read through this entire thread, and you will learn a thing or two regarding the kit.Edited by: Star Guitar

I think like anything, the user plays a large part in somethings success. I know people who think the .26 Picco is a pig, where if I go by my experience it is single best engine I have even run.


jjjrules - can't wait for the review.

i think the reason ppl are ripping holes in crank cases is cos the engine is so exposed
if you could solve that problem it might be alright

How can an engine, previously used for many hellicopter models, start to disintergrate in a truck as if it wsa a beta? Sounds like many gun-ho zilla cuz just don't take the time to get it right....

the engine sticks out past the rool bar a good few cm;s and when you flip, the engine takes a but kicking...even the s25 can be damaged as it is a lil exposed

Are they all bitchin about the engine getting bashed up, or just destroying itself - falling apart?
