Engine Head Protector

I have been bashing for a while but when i realized that when i flip my truck the engine head kept on getting scrached. This a a small trick some guys at hpisavageforum.com told me. I hope this helps.

You will need:

An RC Car/Truck
A Ziptie
Some Fuel tubing

Step 1: Step 1

put in the ziptie between the openings in the Engine head.

Step 2: Step 2

Slip in the fuel tubing

Step 3: Zip It and Trim It

As it says on the title Zip it and trim it and you are done !

Have fun bashing!

Thank you to the guys in HPISavageForum

    I know its a little bit of a late reply but at the moment with brushless motors and lipos electrics are at par if not better then nitro. I have converted my Savage to a Flux ( the electric savage ) i play with it much more often because i can use it any ware i please unlike nitro. On top of that the motor has much more power and incredible torque

    I have a Savage XL yeah and had a K5.9 but it is now replaced with a LRP Spec3 .28 it is much better and much more reliable then the K5.9 plus it produces much more power as well.

     nice truck was my first if you want to protect your engine head then get an hourglass head from rbinnovations and a traxxas wheelie bar and thats all you need  mine went 43 mph stock with just those

    Unfortunately on the revo you can not apply your suggestion for protecting it. the head is not pierced. I hope I explained it. I am not an expert. I have just the revo. A few days ... It 'still a very nice truck and performance, try to see some video. But a good buggy did not compare on a track ... For other application it's a best! Sorry for my english

    YAY i got the 666 view. i'm the devil : D
    oh yea. and nice i'ble :) i've yet to try this cause i regularly beat up my nitro off road. Just today i smashed the front right wheel in and broke a shock and steering shaft. but its only cause the failsafe failed :( and i watched as it drove 20m full throttle into a brick wall. but gud work anyway :)

    surprisingly it doesn't! i thought the same when I first saw this too. the engine doesn't get hot enough to melt it.
