HPI’s Savage XL Octane Gasser: First Video!

Jan 31, 2014 3 Comments by

The gas-burning (as in gasoline, not nitro) monster is still unobtanium on the HPI website, with no applicable results for a search of “Octane,” but sit tight…it’s definitely happening.

Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.

      Edward, it will use a 2-stroke gas mixture like what you use for a chainsaw, weed-whacker or 1/5 RC vehicles.

    Dose this new savage have the tuff quality that we come to look for in a rc truck?
    and what about torque, and some speed runs that’s what people are going to be looking for.
