After an earlier announcement that summer 2017 would be big, HPI is living up to that proclamation with the release of a number of highly-anticipated radio-controlled vehicles. If you’re a fan of fast, you’ll like their latest mini-monster truck.
The Savage XS Flux: Vaughn Gitten Jr. edition is a ready-to-run (RTR), four-wheel drive truck which is loaded for speed and fun. In fact, speeds in excess of 65 miles per hour are claimed on HPI’s info page, however, that appears to require a 3S LiPo and optional gearing (#105809 & #6924).
Featuring waterproof electronics, a 4000kv brushless motor and LiPo-ready electronic speed control (ESC), this truck will tear across pavement and over obstacles. What makes it stand apart from other Savage XS Flux models are the Vaughn Gitten Jr. visual touches, from the eye-grabbing body graphics to the color-coordinated green springs and wheels.
