hello. I am on my second savage flux. the first one had leaking diffs. now on my second run with my second savage flux I have the same problem. What can I do?
My second problem is that the slipper clutch pad is gone. I mean that is has been terminated. Is this normal???
Any suggestions?

1. You replaced you first flux with another? Were they both brand new? I would call up HPI directly and have them order you replacement diffs, they should not be leaking out of the box, though I would recommend swapping out the higher diff oil for something much thicker, especially if you bashing. I put in 100k in my diffs to transfer more power to the wheels.

2. Sounds like your slipper pad is being used to much which means your slipper nuts on too loose. Tighten it up and it will solve that problem.

Good post and just make sure that you always check your slipper and wheels nuts, they both tend to get loose and leaking stock diffs is normal, it happens to everyone.

...FB you mean in your front and rear diffs? Thats not too heavy? It doesnt push too much?

My diffs had also leaked in the box. HPI fills them with very light weight fluid. Use diff fluid that's 20k or higher and fit new diff gaskets #86099.

Also fried the slipper pad. Replace the slipper pad #72131. Then tighten the nut all the way, then back it off about 1/4 turn and you should be OK.

that just sucks - bad part about mass production:mad:

out of box - e-savage - shocks leak

out of box - savage flux - diffs leak (THAT'S EVEN WORSE!)

wow, I notice the amount of savage flux posts starting to outweigh the e-savage posts lately:eek:

that's not all, the Shock in Savage Flux are leaking too.
my shocks were nearly empty after let's say 20 runs.

but it's a common problem with HPI, all their shocks are leaking for some reasons.

My shock was also leaking out of the box because it had no gasket. Now after 2 pussy footing runs I have seen that my rear diff has a small leak. I thought the diffs were filled with grease?
What is the slipper pad for?

Neg, the diffs are filled with around 1,000k oil which is just to light for bashing.

The slipper pad is kinda like a clutch, it allows the power from the motor to be transfferred gently to the transmission. However, with the flux, if its to loose, it simply burns out

You tell me, works just fine for me and more power is transferred to wheels and they don't unload as easy, a must for this torque monster

I don't understand why a thicker diff oil would be better for bashing?

This is a bit over the top for bashing, but it will give you good incite into why and how's of diff oils

http://www.rc411.com/pages/howto.php?howto=24

Basically, its the same reason why real 4WD trucks have "locks" on their differentials. So you can power through over very rough or crappy terrain with the power being transffered to all the wheels no matter which ones are gripping or slipping. Only disadvantage is you can't do this at higher speeds as when your turning, the outside wheel will wanting to turn faster then the inside wheel, hence the diffs allow for this but only if their "unlock" The thicker oil gives my Flux the ability to basically power over or through anything while still being able to unload at higher speeds so my turning doesn't suffer. It also helps reduce tire "ballooning"
