i wasn't shure my self but after doing speed board test with my 2-speed and then put the 3-speed in there was a pretty good improvemernt ,top speed on the speed board was 69km and that was 3 passes,it pulls wheelys on demand with a 19 tooth cluch bell, it seem to give you 10% lower 1st gear and about thesame for top end,bottom line i would buy it.

well.. i have HEARD.. that the three speed with anythin gbigger than the stock savage 28 is DUMB.. it is a wheelie machine.. and is difficult to drive..

It will be very fast top end.. and hard to drive lowend becasue of all the extra power..

All that said.. it would be neet to see.. lol..

3 speed and big motors.....................

I've driven 2 of them now both with the Savage 4.6 engine.................

In a word............."silly"

Too much bottom end grunt.......it either spools up the tires on hard pack and pavement or flips the truck on grass.................

At top speed the truck is VERY fast, almost to the point of being uncontrollable.
If you're into the whole speed run thing its a very good upgrade but if you want control just stick with the 2 speed.................

The 3 speed is an excellent upgrade for the .25 engine, but I really didn't like it with anything bigger motor wise. Know quite a few customers who have taken it back out because its just TOO much with the larger engines.

I've got the 3 spd and the Collari 30 in my Savage. Even with the lower CG TVPs, it wheelies all the time. But then again, so does my TNX...That being said, it really does have a nice punch to it when you're moving.
Any landing you can drive away from, is a good landing
