Smile Savage X 4.6

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Just bought my first Off-Road truck, Savage X 4.6 RTR (Big Block).

Like to get some more info on this truck!
Should I be sealing the engine before I start the break in method? Or is the engine sealed by manufactur?

Is the truck weather safe? What I mean with that is if I can be driving the truck on wet surface (Wet or snowy driveway)? Can water break any parts on the truck?

Any info on this would be greatly appriciated

the cold is going to make the parts more brittle. You will have more breaks in the cold weather.

You will also want to make sure you tear down and clean everything after every run in the wet. You would be surprised how quickly a bearing will seize up.

The 4.6 is an Excellent truck. No sealing will be needed for the engine. I agree with Joe, make sure it's cleaned and dried after every run. It will bring you lots of enjoyment.

I'm new to this site, but a rule of thumb is to stuff your reciever in a balloon and lightly tie strap it at the opening to seal it off. As for your servos they are a little more trickey to water proof. I've herd of dipping them into "tool dip", the stuff that you would coat the handles of a pair of pliers with for example. I've never done it myself though. Anyone else have any genious tricks up their sleve? I bought a savage xl in the late spring and am wondering the same thing.
