As any RC fan will know, the HPI Savage changed the game for RC, unleashing rugged Monster trucks that beg to be backflipped onto the scene. Over the years the power and strength have increased from the original Savage 21 back in 2002, and with the arrival of brushless power came the Savage FLUX HP.
We know that the phrase "hotly anticipated" is an understatement. For years you've been asking us to bring back the Savage FLUX HP, but we knew we had to do it only when the product, supply, spares and time was just right - and that time is NOW!
Standing backflips with a mere blip of the throttle, tire shredding, terrain destroying power that'll make you run for cover . . . FLUX fans know where it's at! And with a raft of new features and upgrades like the new LCG Chassis Design & Layout, new Twin Clamp Motor Mount, new Twin Battery Boxes, new Center Skid Plate, new Center Gearbox, new wheels, tires, body, rugged bumpers and much more, this is nothing less than Next Level Savage!!
THE BEAST IS BACK
The Savage started the RC Bashing movement and 2 decades later, we're still here, stronger than ever and thrilled to blast back into the ring with the holy grail, the jewel in the crown . . . Ladies and gentlemen, the Savage is back!
ALL-NEW WHEELS & TIRES
A new Savage deserves a new set of brutally agressive HPI Havok 3.8" wheels, wrapped in yet another addition to the TREDZ "by HPI Racing" Tire rack. The Tredz Terrahex 3.8" Tires are designed tough, but for ultimate agility and handling at ground shaking speeds.
ULTIMATE SAVAGE TOUGHNESS
From the Super HD Drivetrain, to the Bulletproof 29/9T Differentials, to the new Rugged Bumpers, every inch of the Savage X FLUX V2 is built to survive and dominate. With beefy suspension arms, ready to take the punishment of big-air drops while everything within is protected by the reinforced thick aluminum TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis, flanked by sturdy, new streamlined battery boxes.
NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!
Like all HPI trucks, the Savage X FLUX V2 is easy to drive with the included steering wheel controller - but it should be handled with extreme caution! Hit the gas and the 6S FLUX system blasts into action and to the uninitiated things can get pretty crazy VERY quickly! Expect insane standing backflips, while mud, rocks and dirt get slung at you when you pull the trigger!
Once you get used to the power of the FLUX 2200Kv motor, you'll be able to rip off huge stunts at your local skate park, achieve crazy fast top speeds in empty parking lots and throw up huge rooster tails of dirt! The power of the Savage X FLUX V2 cannot be denied!
NEW LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY CHASSIS DESIGN & LAYOUT
HPI's designers approached this Next Level Savage FLUX V2 from the ground up with a view to maximising performance and above the new wheels and tires, housed in the TVP aluminum chassis is a new, efficient, streamlined layout - fully optimzed for the RC bash of your life!
BIG BORE NYLON SHOCKS
Four huge XL-size Big Bore shocks give all the suspension action you need to get out and blast through the roughest of tracks or off-road terrain. With slick nylon bodies they are lightweight and strong, with almost no friction 'stiction' between the shock piston and shock body. The extra-large capacity gives you extra control and damping action so you have the driving feel that makes off-road driving so much fun!
TOUGH SAVAGE SUSPENSION
After almost 2 decades of seriously thrilling RC bashing performance, the HPI Savage has earned a reputation for being the toughest monster truck you can find. The Savage suspension has evolved along the way as well. The New Savage X FLUX V2 features the latest ultra-tough, super-thick webbed suspension arms and uprights that can take a barrage of abuse and punishment, giving you plenty of big-air thrills in their stride.
HIGH-POWER FLUX ELECTRONICS
The colossally powerful FLUX MLH-2200KV motor is ready for all the power you can run through it, and the FLUX ELH-6S-capable 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!!
Power your Savage X FLUX V2 with a pair of matching LiPo batteries equipped with 2S 7.4v or a whopping 3S 11.1v totalling 6S insane power!
ALL-METAL TRANSMISSION GEARS
In addition to steel pinion and spur gears, the Savage FLUX V2 features all-metal transmission gears to make sure that power delivery is uninterrupted and every bit 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, for extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds!
STEEL SPUR GEAR & SLIPPER CLUTCH
The drivetrain is equipped with a strong steel pinion and 43-tooth steel spur gear for extreme durability as you rip off huge stunts and jumps. For extra resilience, the spur gear features a dual slipper pad design. The spur gear is sandwiched between two lightweight aluminum slipper plates so the drivetrain is protected from hard landings.
SUPER HD DRIVETRAIN
To cope with the sheer power of the 2200KV FLUX system and the brutal eruption of energy it inflicts upon the Savage, the Super HD drivetrain is in its element. From the all-metal center transmission to the Bulletproof 29/9T Differentials. The diffs are fitted with extra-tough forged metal heavy-duty differential pinion and ring gears, plus sintered metal 4-gear internals and metal casings at both ends. Steel diff outdrives, extra-thick super heavy-duty dogbones and steel axles finish off the drivetrain.
STUNT READY OUT THE BOX
The Savage X FLUX V2 lives and breathes for big air, multiple backflips and wicked wheelies, so of course a solid center shaft delivers the kind of drive you need for maximum freeestyle, stunt-whipping action! Center shaft = twitchy and wreckless, but if smooth handling and sublime control and efficiency are your thing - The optional Center Diff is for you!
