SAVAGE POWER FOR SAVAGE FUN!
As any RC fan will know, the HPI Savage changed the game for RC, unleashing rugged Monster trucks that beg to be jumped and wheelied onto the scene. Over the years the power and strength have increased from the original Savage 21 back in 2002. Today we continue to bash harder and jump higher than ever before with the hotly anticipated HPI Savage X 4.6 GT-6!
While most other RC brands have opted to play it safe with electric only, HPI still believes that real trucks have engines! The smoke, the noise - Nothing beats NITRO, and that's why HPI continues to go all out for our Internal Combustion fans!
With a raft of NEW features including 17mm Aluminum Hex Hubs, all hex hardware, new bumpers, new body, wheels & tires, new Super HD Drivetrain (From the Savage FLUX), new Captured Hinge Pins, HD Servo Saver spring, 0.9mm Clutch Springs for boosted torque & acceleration, and a new RF-50N Nitro Receiver. So whether you're a Savage rookie or an OG, you will not be dissapointed with the latest and greatest Big Block Nitro 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 new Super HD Drivetrain, to the Bulletproof 29/9T Differentials, to the new Rugged Bumpers, every inch of the Savage X 4.6 GT-6 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, emblazoned with the notorious 'X' emblem.
NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!
Like all HPI trucks, the Savage X 4.6 GT-6 is easy to drive with the included steering wheel controller - but it should be handled with extreme caution! Hit the gas and the Big Block 4.6 engine roars into life and to the uninitiated things can get pretty crazy VERY quickly! Expect to get mud, rocks and dirt slung at you when you pull the trigger!
Once you get used to the power, you'll be able to rip off huge smokey stunts and initiate 2nd gear on speed runs safe in the knowledge that the new RF-50N Nitro Receiver features a Low Voltage Failsafe to keep your pride and joy safe in the event of a power cut.
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 4.6 GT-6 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.
TWO SPEED TRANSMISSION
The Savage X 4.6 GT-6 features the Savage 2-speed transmission to get the most out of the 4.6 Big Block engine. This gives you the best acceleration and top speed possible, getting all the power efficiently to the ground for maximum fun and enjoyment! The transmission is fully adjustable, too, so you can choose how early or late you shift into higher gear!
NITRO STAR F4.6 V2 ENGINE
The massive F4.6 Big Block engine is designed for one thing and one thing only - huge amounts of horsepower! Nearly 3hp, in fact! Enough horsepower to get the Savage X 4.6 to speeds over 45mph (73kph)! And Big Block TORQUE is always on tap, just pull the throttle for instant thrills. The F4.6 V2 features a new heatsink design with larger heatsink fins for improved cooling. The pullstart utilises a one-way bearing encased in a large 14mm hex for increased durability.
