HPI Savage Flux HP
The Savage Flux HP – Jaw-Dropping Flux Power!
The Savage Flux HP is guaranteed to wow you and your friends! Powered by the awesome Flux Tork 2200 motor and twin battery packs, you will be pulling wheelies at the twitch of a finger, and getting air like nobody’s business!
Easy plug-and-go convenience is the hallmark of electric RC trucks, and the Savage Flux HP is no different. Just plug in two matching battery packs and you are off and running! The Flux Blur speedo can handle massive amounts of power, and you can fit in up to 16 NiMH cells or 2 LiPo batteries (either 2S or 3S type).
Want to hit the speed limit with your monster truck? With the Savage Flux HP it’s all too easy! With 2 3S LiPo batteries and on-road tyres like our #4729 or #4731 mounted Phaltlines you can hit 62 mph (100kph) in no time!
The Savage Flux HP is equipped with as many tough option parts as we could fit in, just so it can handle the power of the Flux Tork 2200 motor. We’ve 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!
2.4GHz Radio System with Failsafe
The Savage X 4.6, Savage XL and Savage Flux HP now include an exclusive brand new HPI 2.4GHz radio system! This means you get to experience DSSS (Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum) technology for no-crystal, no-fuss driving enjoyment. You can just switch on the radio and not have to worry about what channel anyone else is running – just get out and drive!
With failsafe tech, you get additional peace of mind, because you won’t have to worry about battery failures or loss of radio contact – the RF-20 receiver has it built right in!
The Savage Flux HP is based on the already awesome Savage X chassis, and features a low-mounted Flux Tork 2200Kv motor in place of the big-block nitro engine, a powerful Flux Blur speedo in place of the fuel tank, and twin battery boxes hanging on the outside 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!
Everything else from the Savage X is carried over, including the tough all-metal gear drivetrain, extra-powerful 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 us to use just a single nylon shock at each corner, in BIG BORE size for excellent control and traction on any surface.
The Savage Flux HP is loaded with new and exciting features, read on to find out more!
The centrepiece of the Savage Flux HP is the Flux system, consisting of the Tork 2200 motor and Blur speedo – both wholly impressive in their own right, but together they form an unstoppable power force!
The Flux Tork 2200 features the coolest motor cases we’ve ever seen, 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 the upcoming 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 held down to the 3mm 7075 aluminium motor plate with two 8mm billet machined aluminium clamps so it won’t move or shift under the immense amount of torque it can pull.
Controlling the Tork 2200 is the Flux Blur speedo, the most powerful brushless speed controller we 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 12-gauge wires, and to connect to each battery pack we’ve attached real Dean’s connectors for zero power loss and total efficiency. We figured why re-invent the wheel and release our own connector when the best is already available? Topping off the versatility of the Flux Blur speedo (literally) is an integrated cooling fan, which allows the speedo to operate at its ideal temperature.
Finally, you have the ability to easily connect it to your computer for total programming control! With our #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 you can desire, with custom tuning and multiple battery handling thrown in for fun! You can get your friends saying ‘what the Flux?!’ as fast as you can pull the trigger! 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!
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 aluminium plates, with the diff cases at either end providing significant stiffness and the transmissiong casing and motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
