Savage fans are going to go crazy for this amazing new body option for the world's fastest mini-monster truck! The El Camino is one of the most iconic shapes in automotive history and is always near the top of the list when it comes to classic car fan favorites! The SS version is the motored-up, extra-muscled version of the El Camino, even more desirable on the collectible vintage car market - and now it's here on the Savage XS Flux, ready for you to tear up your favorite driving spot! It's replicated for you in all its retro glory, from the front grille and headlights to the tailgate at the back! This is an officially licensed replica, so you know it's the spot-on copy of the full-size El Camino SS.
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. After running in wet or extreme conditions, cleaning and maintenance will be required to prolong the life of the car. Please refer to the instruction manual for further details.
The chassis for the Savage XS Flux 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 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.
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 nylon bodies are lightweight and strong, with almost no 'stiction' between the shock piston and shock body for smooth and consistent damping.
With the aggressive tread of the 2.2" GT2 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. They're mounted on black chrome 2.2" Warlock wheels for tough monster truck styling. 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.
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 Flux EMH-3S ESC is reversible so you can back out of jams with ease. And for maximum adjustability it's fully programmable with our optional Flux Reload ESC Program Box V2.
