Coming soon from HPI Racing is the Savage XS Flux Chevy El Camino SS Ready To Run mini Monster Truck. The chassis for the Savage XS Flux is very similar to the nitro-powered Savage. The backbone consists of the TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) design, formed from two 5mm chassis plates, with the diff cases at either end providing significant stiffness and the transmission casing and motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
The Savage XS Flux features all-metal transmission gears to make sure that power delivery is uninterrupted and every jolt of power gets from the motor to the tires efficiently and with no worry of damage to the gears. The whole drivetrain runs on ball bearings for optimal efficiency, extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds!
The over-sized suspension design makes the Savage XS extremely tough and capable of handling even the wildest bashing action. Aluminum 12mm hex hubs allow the mounting of almost all standard 1/10th scale wheels. Four threaded shocks give the suspension action you need to get out and blast through the roughest of tracks or off-road terrain. Filled with silicone oil, the slick nylon bodies are lightweight and strong, with almost no ‘stiction’ between the shock piston and shock body for smooth and consistent damping.
A ridiculously powerful Flux MMH-4000 brushless powerplant to provide you with the most menacing speed runs, legendary Savage durability that passes the bashing exam with flying colors, innovative TVP technology for a class leading design, and extreme monster truck appearance and ground clearance to conquer it all.
With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux EMH-3S electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! The EMH-3S features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in tough conditions. The Flux EMH-3S ESC is reversible so you can back out of jams with ease. And for maximum adjustability it’s fully programmable with our optional #101856 Flux Reload ESC Program Box V2.
The Savage XS Flux is designed to use 2S or 3S LiPo packs. Out of the box, the Savage XS Flux is optimized for 2S Lipo Power. 2S gives the best balance of handling and performance. But if you want to go for crazy top speed or simply brutal power upgrade to 3S LiPo batteries. Depending on what you want to do and where you want to run the car you will have to adjust the gear ratio. Option parts are required for 3S running in most situations like going off-road or doing stunt driving.
The Savage XS features protection for its electronics and it’s ready to tackle wet conditions like mud, rain and snow! The waterproof receiver is completely sealed from moisture, protecting it in wet conditions to ensure glitch-free operation. The water resistant SS-20WR steering servo and waterproof EMH-3S electronic speed controller complete the package, allowing you to enjoy the action on the road no matter what the weather is like!
The Savage XS Flux Chevy El Camino SS mini Monster Truck comes pre-assembled with 2.4GHz radio system, Flux MMH-4000 brushless motor, Flux EMH-3S waterproof electronic speed control, SS-20WR water resistant servo and painted Chevrolet El Camino SS pick-up truck body.
