HPI Savage XL 5.9 by Ulysses Prioleau [Reader’s Ride]

Ulysses wrote in to tell us that his very favorite types of article in RC Car Action are the How-to’s showing tricks for customizing and upgrading your truck. From the pics, it looks like he has been taking good notes! He tells us he did “a little” custom work to the front end of his HPI Savage XL 5.9. After replacing all the suspension and front and rear diff boxes with aluminum parts, he slapped on 4 shocks up front and two big Integy shocks with the big reservoir in the back. The gearbox is also aluminum, and SPI Racing supplied aluminum wheels to match. For bodywork, Ulysses cut the plastic grille out and replaced it with a more realistic looking screen. Ulysses even sent a YouTube link to his Savage in action, proving that he runs this truck hard! Check it out below.
