dude the sky is the limit my savage has ofna picco motor stainless steel screws 49 tooth spur gear 17 tooth clutch bell steering upgrade with servo savour....I want the aluminum bulk heads skid plate and bumper...I wanted to reduce the weight of my savage that will add weight but the picco 26 shouldn't have a problem with the extra weight.

There is a Truckzilla "light" conversion that comes without the .46 engine...the longer chassis does wonders for handling. The version with .46 engine (the new updated one) isn't really too bad but it does put extra stess on the tranny....I guess if you are looking for a BIG truck but not necessarily the fastest or most nimble then the Zilla can be a lot of fun...My disclaimer; not recommended for newbie engine tuners
To finish first....first ya gotta finish!
