    not good having a hard time getting it started the manual said only take it 1/4 to 1/2 way on the trottle. Done with that then i went to go full speed for a couple of seconds but it only went like 15mph. I'm hoping that its because im running it too rich but should it only be going that fast even without it being tuned or is there a problem

    From your other post you said that your h/s was 4 1/2out , thats alot your really running rich and thats okay for breakin . As you move along you should notice an increase in power as the motor breaks in .Youll need to at one point start leaning the top out as you do the true power well start to come.

    Follow the rest of the drive train for worn or broken parts , pull the crystals from your traxxas and see if they fit your savage.
