Now With 2.4GHz Radio Equipment!
The Savage Flux HP now comes ready-to-run with the high quality HPI TF-20 2.4GHz radio for excellent range, a high torque metal-gear steering servo, and a failsafe equipped receiver. No need to worry about radio conflicts, crystals, or radio interference, this Savage is equipped with the latest Spread Spectrum radio technology that delivers worry-free driving.
The Savage Flux HP is equipped with tough option parts to help it handle the power of the Flux Tork 2200 motor. HPI has 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 proven Savage X chassis, and features a low-mounted Flux Tork 2200Kv motor in place of the big-block nitro engine, a powerful Flux Blur electronic speed control in place of the fuel tank, and twin battery boxes 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!
Proven features from the Savage X are carried over, including the tough all-metal gear drivetrain, powerful SF-50 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 the use of a single BIG BORE shock absorber on each corner for excellent control and traction on any surface.
The centerpiece of the Savage Flux HP is the Flux system, consisting of the Tork 2200 motor and Blur electronic speed control - both impressive in their own right, but together they form an unstoppable power force! The Flux Tork 2200 features a motor case 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 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 mounted to the 3mm 7075 aluminum motor plate with two 8mm billet machined aluminum clamps so it won't move or shift under the immense amount of torque of the brushless motor.
Controlling the Tork 2200 is the Flux Blur electronic speed control, the most powerful brushless speed controller HPI 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 10-gauge wires, and to connect to each battery pack HPI attached real Deans connectors for zero power loss and total efficiency. They figured why re-invent the wheel and release their own connector when the best is already available? Topping off the versatility of the Flux Blur is an integrated cooling fan, which allows the electronic speed control to operate at its ideal temperature.
Finally, you have the ability to easily connect the system to your computer for total programming control! With the #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 your heart could desire, with custom tuning and multi-battery compatibility 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!
- TVP Chassis (Twin Vertical Plate): 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 aluminum plates, with the diff cases at either end providing significant stiffness and the transmission casing and motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
- Extra-Low CG: The Flux Tork 2200 motor sits extremely low in the chassis, providing as low a center of gravity (CG) as possible, and the twin battery packs ride on the outside of the TVP chassis for easy access. 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 handle 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 battery boxes feature vents to keep the batteries cool, and it is recommended that only official Deans zero-loss battery plugs are used.
- 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 for instant wheelies and standing backflips! The Tork 2200 is held in place with 2 machined 8mm billet aluminum motor clamps secured to the 3mm 7075 alloy motor mount to prevent it moving once the gear mesh is set. Option pinion gears are 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 Savage Flux HP, the Flux Blur electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! Fully programmable with the #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 tires 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 tires 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 the abuse and punishment of extreme off-road driving.
- Machined Diff Gears: Equipped with #102246 Machined Super Heavy Duty Bevel 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 durability you'll want when you take the Savage Flux HP into rough country! The thick diameter and larger ends add up to a drivetrain that 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 damage!
- 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 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-50 High Torque Metal Gear Steering Servo: HPI designers chose a super-strong, extra-tough high torque metal gear servo. The SF-50 will get the GT-2 tires turning easily at any speed! There's no need to upgrade the servo - this baby's got it all! With the bellcrank steering and built-in servo saver, you can be sure that the SF-50 will be fully protected against crash damage!
- Savage Wheelie Bar Included: 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!
- All-Terrain Tires: With the aggressive tread of the GT-2 tires, you can go off-road to on-road with predictable handling. The center tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the blocky tread pattern and heavy-duty sidewall teeth provide grip for off-road terrain like dirt, mud, muck, leaves.
- GT-2 Body with Flame Paint Scheme: To give the sleek GT-2 body a new look, it has been wrapped with the coolest pre-painted paint scheme HPI has ever produced - dark grey and red flames give the body an entirely new look and celebrate the unbelievable power of the Savage Flux HP.
- RTR - Performance Straight From The Box: HPI makes it as easy as possible to get into RC off-road action. The Savage Flux HP is completely pre-built and ready to go right out of the box! Everything is assembled and tuned for you by professionals - diffs, shocks, suspension and more are perfect before you even open the package.

Anyone who knows the reliability of the savage family will not be disapointed here and for those of wich this is there first savage, it's like no other vehicle, bash it like no other! forget about having to buy a part or two after a weekend of bashing, this truck is nearly bulletproof!
The 2.4ghz system is good and gets good range. The transmiter is very light and only uses 6AA batteries. The receiver is very small and light. the steering servo is decent and gets good torque and range but the speed is a bit lacking.
overall this truck is great for anything! My favorite basher and can make a decent racer also.

I love this monster truck. The power it has makes my other monster trucks look like a snails. The flux HD is very beefed up. After many crashes from its uncontrollable POWER, the Flux HD is sill working; nothing is borken yet.)
