    HPI E Savage

    I have the HPI E Savage and it is a great little truck, but I seem to have problems with bending the shocks all the time, It has integy piggy back shocks on it, Doers anyone else have this problem.

    You may have the shocks too stiff if the rods are bending.

    No wonder! Due to soft shocks, it doesn't have much help when the truck comes down. Try some 50-60wt shock oil. That should help the shocks out when the truck lands. Tell me if it helps out!
