HPI Super-Sizes Savage With New 5.9cc XL Version

HPI’s Savage just got another steroid boost with the latest XL version, which stretches the wheelbase, plumps up the tires, and increases displacement compared to the previous Savage X model. The XL gets a new 5.9cc (.36ci) engine, and everything you need to fire up the big mill is in the box–including the Roto-Start engine-cranker, […]

Losi’s New Desert Buggy XL: 1/5 Scale 4WD Open-Wheeler

Losi’s latest gas-burner goes for a desert-buggy look, and is built on a unique chassis–it’s not a re-skinned 5IVE-T. The engine is different too, a 23cc mill instead of the truck’s 26cc powerplant. Spektrum radio gear is standard,  and the Desert Buggy XL rolls out RTR just as you see it here. Looking forward to […]

He swapped the original 2.5 nitro engine for a more robust TRX3.3 Racing Engine, but the real handiwork here is Greg’s careful construction of the wood paneling he added to the bed […]
