HPI Savage XS SS Build
HPI Savage XS SS Build

If you familiar with HPI’s Savage XS, you know that this is one mean mini machine! Packed with HPI’s potent Flux system, this little rocket can hit speeds of up to 65mph on a 3S pack.

To make the Savage XS better (at least in my eyes), HPI now offers it as an SS kit-build. That means you get the enjoyment of building it and stuffing it full of whatever power system you want!

Follow our step-by-step build up right here on CompetitionX. Testing and my final thoughts will be posted in an upcoming review.

The following support parts will be used with this build:
• HPI SF-32TT Digital Servo, www.hpiracing.com
• HPI Q-Base Flux Brushless ESC, www.hpiracing.com
• HPI Flux Shot Brushless Motor, www.hpiracing.com
• HPI Plazma 3S LiPo Battery, www.hpiracing.com
