The Savage XS Flux packs in everything you know and love about the neck snapping, standing backflippable Savage Flux! A ridiculously powerful Flux brushless powerplant to provide you with the most menacing speed runs, legendary Savage durability that passes the bashing exam with flying colors, innovative TVP technology for a class leading design, and extreme monster truck appearance and ground clearance to conquer it all.
The compact Savage XS Flux is just 2/3 the size of a standard Savage FLUX XP, so it's the perfect size for backyard tracks and smaller areas. The Savage XS Flux is built tough with an all-metal drivetrain so it can handle giant jumps and speeds over 65mph! The 4WD system provides excellent traction on any off-road or on-road surface you can throw at it. And it's all built with legendary Savage toughness so you spend more time driving and less time wrenching.
The Savage XS Flux is ready to go right out of the box, including a 2.4GHz radio system and 3S-capable Flux brushless system. Just add your favorite Li-Po battery pack like the HPI Plazma 7.4V or 11.1V batteries and start driving! This edition of the Savage XS Flux also features the awesome looks of Vaughn Gittin Jr's Fun-Haver styling!
The awesome 'geometric' design that covers the body comes straight out of the design studio of Formula D champion Vaughn Gittin Jr! It's a version of the competition livery that wraps Vaughn's drift-spec Ford Mustang RTR and is just jaw-dropping cool! The bright green and blue colors really help the Savage XS FLUX mini-monster truck stand out from the bashing crowd, and the matching highlights on the bumper lights, wheels and shock springs tie it all together.
The Savage XS is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – to drive the truck, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To brake the truck and come to a stop, gently push away from you with your left index finger. It takes just seconds to get used to driving an RC car, and soon you'll be doing climbing rocks and hills with ease!
The Savage XS features protection for its electronics and it's ready to tackle wet conditions like mud, rain and snow! The waterproof receiver is completely sealed from moisture, protecting it in wet conditions to ensure glitch-free operation. The water resistant SS-20WR steering servo and waterproof EMH-3S electronic speed controller complete the package, allowing you to enjoy the action on the road no matter what the weather is like! Please note: the electronics are not designed for submerged operation. Be sure to rinse off any dirt or salt water with clean water immediately after driving. Check the motor to make sure no water or dirt is inside, spray with electric motor cleaning spray and let dry fully before driving again.
The chassis for the Savage XS Flux is very similar to that of its big brother, the Savage FLUX HP that we all know and love - the backbone consists of the TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) design, formed from two 5mm chassis 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.
The Savage XS Flux 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 ball bearings for optimal efficiency, extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds!
The over-sized suspension design makes the Savage XS extremely tough and capable of handling even the wildest bashing action. Aluminum 12mm hex hubs allow the mounting of almost all standard 1/10th scale wheels.
With the racing-style pin tread blocks of the 2.2" PowerPin tires, you can go off-road to on-road with predictable handling. The center tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the small rubber blocks provide grip for off-road terrain like hard-packed dirt and gravel. The tires are mounted on bright green 2.2" wheels for cool monster truck styling that matches the Fun-Haver styling of the Savage XS body. For maximum hop-up potential, the Savage XS Flux accepts a wide variety of 1/10th scale 2.2" wheels and tires, making customizing your truck easy!
Four threaded shocks give the suspension action you need to get out and blast through the roughest of tracks or off-road terrain. Filled with silicone oil, the slick composite shock bodies are lightweight and strong, with almost no 'stiction' between the shock piston and shock body for smooth and consistent damping. You can also change the shock oil to change the handling, and the threaded shock bodies allow you to make simple and quick ride height changes - lower the ride height for on-road driving, and raise it all the way up for big-air stunts!
The Flux MMH-4000 motor delivers massive power - plenty of juice for instant wheelies and standing backflips! Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required. With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux EMH-3S electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! The EMH-3S features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in tough conditions. The reversing function of the Flux EMH-3S ESC lets you easily back out of jams with ease. And for maximum adjustability it's fully programmable with our optional Flux Reload ESC Program Box V2!
