I ran an 8.5 BL system in mine for a summer, eventually the slipper mechanism will fail though. Check the WK links for mods to fix that. Ultimately, I rebuilt my WK using a beefed up Axial trans with C.I.'s modified output shafts.

I have been beating this setup for over a year with a 27t on 3s. Not one single issue

Yes, I'm running this setup. Just the top two gears are metal. The bottom one is the stock plastic one but I have never stripped that one out. Before going to this I was stripping the top two stock plastic gears every 7 or 8 battery packs. Since then, no problems at all with the transmission.

ok thats awesome. I think im going to do that mode once i get my steering issure fixed. just so you know the savage transmission had the 28 tooth gear if you needed it. I had an extra one ripped apart cause of a gear problem.

Do you have any more info on this. I looked through the manuals for all the electric and nitro savages and didn't see a 28t mod1 gear anywhere. Am I missing something?

Thats my bad i recounted the gear and it turns out to be 29 tooth . Im not too sure if that would work but i might try it, just cause the other gears are 18 and 22 tooth so if i can get them all to fit that would be awesome

No problem. I'm sure it will not work as the diameter is larger on the 29t.
