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 Super HD Drivetrain, to the Bulletproof 29/9T Differentials, to the new Rugged Bumpers, every inch of the Savage XL 5.9 GTXL-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.
ALL-NEW RADIO GEAR
Like all HPI trucks, the Savage XL is easy to drive with the included steering wheel controller.
The All-New 2.4Ghz FHSS TF-50 Transmitter features:
- Drop down steering position for a natural control position
- Foam covered wheel for extra comfort and grip
- Swappable steering wheel design for left handers!
- Rubber finger and thumb handle grips

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!
HD SPRING-LOADED SERVO SAVER
Continuing the Savage’s reinforcements, we’re using even more HD upgrades in the standard spec! This heavy-duty servo saver spring provides more direct steering for all the new Savage X Nitro and Flux models, allowing today’s stronger steering servos to give the Savage faster and more immediate steering response.
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 XL 5.9 GTXL-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.
DUAL BRAKE DISCS
All this monstrous power takes some stopping, and to conrol this beast like a pro you’ll need to dab the anchor in the turns or to scrub speed whilst flying through the air and hit the right combination of throttle and brake to set your pitch right for that perfect landing… These twin vented disk brakes are made from heat-resistant fiber material delivering shorter brake distances, reduced brake fade from heat build-up and overall better performance on the track!
NEW CAPTURED HINGE PINS
It’s not just about ballistic action, the new generation of Savages also have usability high on their agenda… Over the years Savage fans around the world have told us the hinge pins need to be secured in place so they don’t come loose during extreme bashing, well our designers are always listening and have fitted the car with hinge pin covers to ensure they don’t go anywhere, no matter how hard you bash
BRAND NEW RUGGED BUMPERS FRONT AND REAR!
With a chunkier, more aggressive than ever look, the new front and rear bumpers also have space for both 5mm and 3mm LEDs so you can add your choice of lights and light up the track while you bash
LEGENDARY ALUMINUM TWIN VERTICAL PLATE CHASSIS
The beefy metal plates that house all the good stuff under the hood are synonymous with the Savage family. The 3.0mm thick “TVP” as we call them – are unshakeably strong, yet lightweight and provide the ultimate backbone built to handle gigantic jumps, rough landings, rolls and full-speed crashes.
17MM HEX HUBS
For the new generation of Savages we’ve introduced Standardized 17mm Aluminum Hex Hubs. This means your Savage truck is ready to use any of the gigantic range of 1/8th scale buggy and truggy wheels and tires available from HPI. A large, black, serrated 17mm nut holds the wheel securely to the hub for worry-free bashing duties.
MOLDED BODY COMPONENTS
Our best-ever generation of Savage upgrades are not just limited to performance, the brand new HPI designed GTXL-6 body also looks awesome with a new livery and plastic molded body detail parts including realistic grille, vents, mirrors and roll bars.
PERFORMANCE AIR FILTER
Providing the engine with its vital air supply along with protection against dust and dirt. The design features two different foams for two-level protection. While the large air intake is right in the middle of the foam cylinder with two solid nylon plates at the top and bottom preventing damage inside the engine. The large dimensions of the filter element and air intake give optimal, constant air supply and maximum performance
THREE SPEED TRANSMISSION
The Savage XL features the Savage 3-speed transmission to get the most out of the F5.9 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 the XL will shift into higher gear!
NEW 3-SHOE ALUMINUM CLUTCH
The Savage XL uses an XL-tough 3-shoe aluminum clutch to get the power from the engine into the drivetrain. Using a unique blend of aluminum, the clutch shoes will resist wear, not be affected by engine heat and last for a very long time. There’s no more secure way to get the power to the ground!
NITRO STAR F5.9 ENGINE
At the heart of the Savage XL is the monstrous Nitro Star F5.9 engine! This 5.9cc (.36 cubic inch) powerplant gives the XL loads of torque and the muscle to power over obstacles and through the toughest terrain and conditions. The low powerband supplies the torque for getting the XL up to speed fast, and the curved manifold and aluminum tuned pipe get the most power out of the engine. The F5.9 is also fitted with a Roto-Start 3 for easy starting, a vented heavy-duty clutchbell, an aluminum 3-shoe clutch for tough and reliable power transfer, and a new heatsink design with larger heatsink fins for improved cooling.
Get things going quickly with the Roto Start 3 starting system, which is pre-installed onto the back of the engine. The Roto Start 3 lets you use a handheld starting unit so you don’t have to deal with starting the engine by hand – it really doesn’t get any easier to get running!
The Roto Start 3 has an Xtra-Long starting wand to make sure you can get through to the back of the engine without struggle and features a circuit breaker that protects the unit in the event of an engine lock up.
