Partly because we are having a general tidy up in preparation for the new baby and partly because I want to raise some funds for a Blade 450, I’ve decided the HPI Savage has to go.

I’ve tried starting it a few times recently and got it running, but as soon as I throttled up it stalled. I’d pretty much given up with it when I had a brainwave: send it to Peter down at 308 Holloway Road and see if he could make it work. Turns out after a bit of heads scratching he found a speck of dirt in the carb. No it’s running sweet, already to go up on eBay tomorrow.

One last video of me testing it after I got it back this morning.
