• HPI savage Flux XL released 18/01/17


    mydoddy69

    The Savage XL Flux combines the awesome raw power of 6S LiPo brushless power with the stability of a long wheelbase in the legendary Savage HPI monster truck package! The colossally powerful Flux Tork 2200 is ready for all the power you can run through it, and the Flux ELH-6S electronic speed controller is fully capable of up to 22.2 volts of power to let you pull off giant stunts and jaw-dropping speed. Fully equipped with super heavy-duty drivetrain parts, all-metal differentials with machine-cut gears, 2.5mm TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis, 3mm 7075 motor plate and 8mm billet motor clamps, the Savage XL Flux is stacked with options and ready to rock right out of the box!

    Same old crappy wheel nuts.... I'm kinda interested in this, I've put in for a email update for when they come in to stock at MS, so we will wait and see what I decide :good:

    That body looks like it's meant for the XS...!!!  Nice truck though. Speaking to our LHS owner yesterday and he was telling me about how Ripmax bought HPI Europe for nought, well they did take on their debt liability which was fairly large. Just hope ripmax can make HPI great again, with trucks like this and the Blitz they have some solid established models to build on.

    I've just looked through the manual and tbh HPI are lazy, there's nothing really different from the Flux I had over 5+ years ago.... I'm out

    Funny, the only thing I noticed was ... the short shell!

    Should be a good truck with such a well-proven chassis.

    Basically, is this the so-called 'giant Savage to rival the X-Maxx'?

     

    Something was mentioned a few months ago I think.

    This has been "soon to be released" for about 4 years!

    Hmmm, could I have the electrics out of this in a xmaxx?

     

    bit disappointing after such a long wait I have to say....

     

    still using ancient wheel hubs that are now vastly outdated, got a proper whiff of tamiya about it :rofl:

    that was my first thought when i saw this.

     

    i thought that the parts would slowly fade away.

    I was waiting for ages for this to show its face and now it has I think someone needs to put it back in the box and then go and think about what they have done. What an utter shame

    Cause Theyre 8th scale? And would last about 5 minutes? The KV is far too high for such a huge truck like the x Maxx

    The same electrics are in the 5sc flux, with the right gearing they would do just fine in the Xmaxx
