The huge success of the Savage began with the release of the ground-breaking Savage 21 in September 2002. The new updated Savage 3.5 RTR is based on the classic Savage 21 that has proven its power, performance, durability and strength since it’s first release. The new Savage 3.5 RTR has been updated with all the latest Savage improvements to make it even stronger

Nitro Star F3.5 - New engine for more power!

This .21 cubic inch engine is 3.5cc of pure, massive muscle! With 2.5hp on tap, the rear-exhaust Nitro Star F3.5 is supremely powerful and is a great match for any car or truck that can take big-block engines. The large heat sink is anodized a cool black to enhance the heat dissipation properties of the CNC-machined billet heat. The aluminium case also features loads of cooling fins to release heat, letting the engine keep its cool under any circumstances! Protecting the internal parts of the engine is a large oiled foam air filter, which is included with the engine. A huge composite-body slide-type carburettor enables the fuel to reach the combustion chamber without boiling away, and features all the adjustments you need to keep the engine tuned for all conditions. Inside, the Nitro Star F3.5 features industry-standard ABC construction for longevity and ease of use. To get the engine going, the Nitro Star F3.5 is equipped with a tough pull starter as standard.
