New from HPI:
The all-new Savage Flux HP is guaranteed to wow you and your friends! Powered by the awesome Flux Tork 220 motor and twin battery packs, you will be pulling wheelies at the twitch of a finger, and getting air like nobody’s business!
Easy plug-and-go convenience is the hallmark of electric RC trucks, and the Savage Flux HP is no different. Just plug in two matching battery packs and you are off and running! The Flux Blur speedo can handle massive amounts of power, and you can fit in up to 16 NiMH cells or 2 LiPo batteries (either 2S or 3S type).
Want to hit the speed limit with your monster truck? With the Savage Flux HP it’s all too easy! With 2 3S LiPo batteries and on-road tyres like our #4729 or #4731 mounted Phaltlines you can hit 62 mph (100kph) in no time!
The Savage Flux HP is equipped with as many tough option parts as we could fit in, just so it can handle the power of the Flux Tork 2200 motor. We’ve equipped it with an all-metal gear transmission, steel spur gear, super heavy-duty dogbones, machine cut diff gears, 2.5mm TVP chassis plates, 3mm 7075 motor plate and dual 8mm billet motor clamps!
The Savage Flux HP is based on the already awesome Savage X chassis, and features a low-mounted Flux Tork 2200Kv motor in place of the big-block nitro engine, a powerful Flux Blur speedo in place of the fuel tank, and twin battery boxes hanging on the outside to hold a variety of battery types. Power your Savage Flux HP with either NiMH batteries from 6- to 8-cell size, or dual LiPo batteries with 2S 7.4v or a whopping 3S 11.1v power!
Everything else from the Savage X is carried over, including the tough all-metal gear drivetrain, powerful SF-5 metal-gear servo, machine-cut diff gears and legendary Savage suspension parts and shock towers for extreme durability! The lighter weight of the Savage Flux HP allows us to use just a single nylon shock at each corner, in BIG BORE size for excellent control and traction on any surface.
The Savage Flux HP is loaded with new and exciting features, read on to find out more!
The centrepiece of the Savage Flux HP is the Flux system, consisting of the Tork 2200 motor and Blur speedo – both wholly impressive in their own right, but together they form an unstoppable power force!
The Flux Tork 2200 features the coolest motor cases we’ve ever seen, with massive machined cooling fins that really make it look the part of an all-out power plant! With a 5mm motor shaft it can fit the upcoming optional pinion gears so you can get even MORE top speed for those insane runs, or gear it down a bit for increased acceleration on the track. The Tork 2200 is held down to the 3mm 7075 aluminium motor plate with two 8mm billet machined aluminium clamps so it won’t move or shift under the immense amount of torque it can pull.
Controlling the Tork 2200 is the Flux Blur speedo, the most powerful brushless speed controller we could find. With the ability to handle twin 3S LiPo batteries (that’s a total of 6S LiPo power!) it can deal with anything the Tork 2200 motor can dish out! 6mm bullet connectors secure the motor wires for loss-free connection to the 12-gauge wires, and to connect to each battery pack we’ve attached real Dean’s connectors for zero power loss and total efficiency. We figured why re-invent the wheel and release our own connector when the best is already available? Topping off the versatility of the Flux Blur speedo (literally) is an integrated cooling fan, which allows the speedo to operate at its ideal temperature.
Finally, you have the ability to easily connect it to your computer for total programming control! With our #100573 USB Programming Kit you can connect the Blur to any Windows-based PC to control all the various facets of its power delivery, braking, throttle curves, battery cut-off and much more. You can also save various profiles to have profiles for racing, insane speed runs, stunts, fun running and more.
With the Flux Tork 2200 and Blur combo, you get all the power you can desire, with custom tuning and multiple battery handling thrown in for fun! You’ll have to experience it to believe it!
The Savage Flux HP is loaded with features that make it the perfect choice for anyone looking for a massively fun, plug-and-go monster truck! Check out the long list of parts and custom features that are standard on the Savage Flux HP!
The chassis for the Savage Flux HP 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 2.5mm aluminium plates, with the diff cases at either end providing significant stiffness and the transmissiong casing and motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
The Flux Tork 2200 motor sits extremely low in the chassis, providing as low a centre of gravity (CG) as possible, and the twin battery packs ride on the outside of the TVP chassis members, where the tuned pipe and fuel tank on a nitro-powered Savage would usually rest. The low CG gives you extra control and cornering ability, allowing you to rule the corners on the track and pull off spectacular stunts to impress and wow your friends!
Twin Battery Power
Brushless motors like the Flux Tork 2200 are already super powerful with just one battery compared to their older brushed ancestors, so you can imagine what two battery packs will be able to provide! The Savage Flux HP can take up to 16 NiMH cells (split up with 2 x 6-cell, 2 x 7-cell or 2 x 8-cell battery packs) or 2 LiPo packs of either 2S 7.4v or 3S 11.1v construction. The production battery boxes will feature loads of vents to keep the batteries cool, and we suggest using official Deans zero-loss battery plugs.
Flux Tork 2200 Motor
The Flux Tork 2200 motor is one of the biggest and most powerful brushless motors available, and was selected specifically for its massive power delivery and voltage handling. It can take up to 25 volts of power, delivering hordes of power – plenty of juice to let to you do instant wheelies and standing backflips! The Tork 2200 is held in place with 2 machined 8mm billet aluminium motor clamps secured to the 3mm 7075 alloy motor mount to prevent it moving once the gear mesh is set. Option pinion gears will be available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery!
Flux Blur ESC
With the capacity to handle up to 6S LiPo power and more NiMH cells than can actually fit in the Savaage Flux HP, the Flux Blur speedo can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! Fully programmable with our #100573 USB Programming Kit and fitted with fat 6mm bullet connectors, the Blur delivers power to the Tork 2200 motor in massive gulps of voltage while the integrated cooling fan keeps everything at a reasonable operating temperature.
All-Metal Transmission Gears
The Savage Flux HP features all-metal transmission gears to make sure that power delivery is uninterrupted and every jolt of power gets from the motor to the tyres efficiently and with no worry of damage to the gears. The whole drivetrain runs on rubber-sealed ball bearings for optimal efficiency, for extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds!
XL Tough Suspension
The Savage Flux HP features the uprights designed for the larger tyres and weight of the Savage XL, giving you the assurance that you’ll be able to deal out the same abuse that all the other nitro-powered Savage trucks can handle! Beefy parts mean the Savage Flux HP can take plenty of abuse and punishment, giving you plenty of big-air thrills before a parts breakages forces you to take a break.
Machined Diff Gears
Equipped with #86922 Machined Heavy Duty Bev
el Gears, you can be sure that the diffs of the Savage Flux HP will last for a long time, taking the punishment of the Flux Tork 2200 motor! The entire drivetrain can be upgraded with all the option parts available to nitro Savage owners, letting you upgrade and bulletproof your truck as desired.
Thick Super Heavy-Duty Dogbones
Extra-thick, super duty dogbones provide the insurance you’ll want when you take the Savage Flux HP way off-road and into rough country! The thick diameter, larger ends and sleek black anodizing add up to all the assurance you’ll want that the drivetrain won’t let you down when the going gets tough! You’ll be able to commit the full power of the Tork 2200 motor to the ground without worrying about drivetrain breakages or anything else!
Machined Steel Spur Gear
A machined steel spur gear is the perfect match for the power of the Tork 2200 motor. The pinion gear spins on a 5mm motor shaft and optional pinion gears will be available after the Savage Flux HP is launched. With the all-metal drivetrain running from the motor to transmission, and from the gearbox to the diffs, you get a huge amount of drivetrain protection with gears that won’t strip, melt or break! You’ll have security and peace of mind that your truck will not only perform superbly, but last as long as possible in the roughest of terrain and conditions!
Big Bore Nylon Shocks
Four huge 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!
SF-5 High Torque Metal Gear Steering Servo
HPI designers settled on a super-strong, extra-tough high torque metal gear servo. With nearly 9kg of force per centimeter (that’s 126psi!), the SF-5 will get the GT-2 tyres turning easily at any speed! There’s no need to upgrade the servo for anything else – this baby’s got it all! With the bellcrank steering and built-in servo saver, you can be sure that the SF-5 will be fully protected against crash damage or bad landings, too!
Savage Wheelie Bar Incluced
The #85245 is included as standard, ready for you to bolt on in case you want to pull impressive wheelies to wow your friends. Want to pull off jaw-dropping standing backflips without a ramp? Leave the wheelie bar off, we don’t mind – just be prepared for your friends to ask for the controller! It’s OK if you say no and tell them to get their own, though!
With the aggressive tread of the GT-2 tyres, you can go off-road to on-road with cool, predictable handling and very little drama. The centre tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the side treads and heavy-duty sidewall teeth grip any sort of dirt, mud, muck, leaves, etc., you can find on dirt roads or rutted fields. Drive with confidence knowing that the grip from your tyres are the least of your worries.
GT-2 Bodyshell with All-New Flame Paint Scheme
To give the sleek GT-2 bodysheel a whole new look, we’ve wrapped it with the coolest pre-painted paint scheme we’ve ever seen – dark grey and red flames give the truck bodyshell an entirely new outlook and celebrate the unbelievable power of the Flux Tork/Blur combination.
Comes fully assembled with Flux Tork 2200 motor, Flux Blur speedo, HPI TF-3 radio system, SF-5 high torque metal gear steering servo, and painted & trimmed bodyshell. Also contains detailed instruction manual and HPI RC Cars DVD.
Note: the battery packs required for the truck are two NiMH (up to 8-cell ‘flat’ type packs) or two LiPo batteries (2S or 3S) plus applicable charger. Batteries must be same type, voltage and capacity
