The Savage XS Flux packs in everything you know and love about the neck snapping, standing backflip Savage Flux. A ridiculously powerful Flux 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. Oh, did we mention that it fits in your backpack? That’s right, the compact Savage Flux XS goes where the standard size Savage can’t. At 2/3 the size of a standard Savage, the Savage XS Flux is the perfect size for backyard tracks.

The Savage XS Flux is built tough with an all-metal drivetrain so it can handle giant jumps and speeds over 65mph. The 4WD system provides excellent traction on any off-road or on-road surface you can throw at it. And it’s all built with legendary Savage toughness so you spend more time driving and less time wrenching.

Pre-assembled from the factory, the Savage XS Flux is ready to go right out of the box, including a 2.4GHz radio system and Flux brushless system. Just add your favorite 2S or 3S Li-Po battery pack and start driving!

The all-new 65+ MPH Savage XS Flux – The World’s Fastest Mini Monster Truck. PERIOD.

2.4GHz Radio System
Controlling the Savage XS Flux is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. The TF-40 pistol grip transmitter features adjustments for steering trim, throttle trim, steering dual rate, end points, servo reversing switches, low battery indicator, and a 3rd channel for optional accessories. The 3 channel receiver is equipped with a failsafe system for maximum safety.

Waterproof Electronics
The Savage XS Flux has a waterproof receiver box to keep the 2.4GHz receiver protected from the elements for glitch-free operation. A new SF-10W waterproof steering servo and a waterproof VAPOR Pro electronic speed control mean your Savage XS Flux won’t be stopped by wet conditions.

Tough TVP Chassis
The chassis for the Savage XS Flux is very similar to the nitro-powered Savage that we all know and love – 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.

Flux VEKTOR 4000 Motor
The Flux VEKTOR 4000 motor delivers massive power – plenty of juice for instant wheelies and standing backflips! Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.

With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! The VAPOR Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in tough conditions. The Flux VAPOR Pro ESC is reversible so you can back out of jams with ease. And for maximum adjustability it’s fully programmable with our optional #100573 USB Programming Kit.

LiPo Battery Power
The Savage Flux XS is designed to use 2S or 3S LiPo packs. The battery box features vents to keep the battery pack cool, and we suggest using an official Deans® zero-loss battery plug to match the plug on the ESC.

For maximum hop-up potential, the Savage XS Flux accepts a wide variety of 1/10th scale 2.2″ wheels and tires, along with standard 1/10th scale servos, batteries, receivers and electronic speed controllers.

All-Metal Transmission Gears
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!

Silicone Filled Threaded Shocks
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.

All-Terrain Tires
With the aggressive tread of the 2.2″ GT2 tires, you can go off-road to on-road with predictable handling. The center tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the blocky tread pattern and heavy-duty sidewall teeth provide grip for off-road terrain like dirt, mud, muck, leaves. They’re mounted on black chrome 2.2″ Warlock wheels for tough monster truck styling.

Pre-Painted Body
The GT-2XS monster truck body is wrapped with a “red flame” paint scheme just like the full size Savage Flux HP. It’s completely trimmed with decals pre-applied so you can hit the track quickly.

RTR – Performance Straight From the Box
HPI makes it as easy as possible to get into RC off-road action. The Savage XS Flux is completely pre-built and ready to go right out of the box! Everything is assembled and tuned for you by professionals – diffs, shocks, suspension and more are perfect before you even open the package.

HPI Ready-To-Run vehicles bring you the same high performance and quality that you’d expect from a high end RC kit but with the added convenience of being factory pre-assembled to the highest standards – giving you a high performance RC truck straight from the box!

HPI RTR cars and trucks are 98% factory assembled – they come Ready-To-Run and equipped with all the radio gear required. Just a few steps are needed to get your car up and running, such as adding the batteries to the transmitter and charging up your choice of batteries to fit in the truck!

Full Assembly Instructions and HPI RC Cars DVD
Inside the box you get a full, in-depth instruction manual with step by step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your monster truck for maintenance and easy servicing.

The information on the HPI RC Cars DVD provides a complete and detailed introduction to the fascinating world of RC cars and trucks. This DVD will show you how to get the best performance from your HPI RC vehicle. The HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box!
