Just add some HPI Power Fuel and you're ready to start driving!
Controlling the Savage X 4.6 is easy with the included HPI 2.4GHz radio system. You’ll never need to worry about changing crystals; the radio automatically prevents frequency conflicts. If the truck loses radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to an eased safe and controlled stop.
The all new HPI Savage X 4.6 features a new GT-3 truck body that's available in two pre-painted color choices, Black/Gunmetal/Silver and Gunmetal/Silver/Black. The intricate paint designs feature an action sports inspired layout for concourse quality appearance. The GT-3 body comes completely trimmed, decaled and mounted for the ultimate in ease. And of course you can always customize your Savage X 4.6 with any of the clear or pre-painted polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies and other manufacturers as well! For great looks, the HPI Savage X 4.6 is topped off with a grey anodized engine head, a clean set of black chrome Warlock wheels, and orange anodized aluminum parts.
Four huge Big Bore shocks give the suspension action you need to get out and blast through the toughest and roughest of tracks or Off-Road terrain. The slick Nylon bodies are strong and lightweight, with almost no '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!
Keeping everything protected is the reinforced "X" TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis that features thick aluminum plates and custom 'X' graphics. Extra material was added to the skid plates and bumper to help the Savage X 4.6 survive huge crashes and jumps. The HPI Savage X 4.6 RTR has beefy suspension arms that can take the punishment of big-air drops and top speed runs over bumpy terrain. The engine plate and engine mount are now thicker to give you more endurance and durability, especially when you're landing massive jumps!
The all new HPI Savage X 4.6 is the most user-friendly Savage of all time, allowing you to access all of the key areas with minimal disassembly. For example, the center gearbox is split into four separate pieces to give you access from the top without dissembling the TVP's. Differential access is also easier than ever with no chassis removal required. No matter what part of the truck you are trying to access, it can all be done in record breaking time!
Rough off-road terrain and extreme stunts are not a problem with this engine! The included F4.6 engine has a grey anodized machined aluminum cooling head that helps keep the engine cool. The F4.6 features true ABC construction (Aluminum piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve), a 7.5mm composite carburetor, 8 port tuning, and a heavy duty triple shoe clutch. A dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and dirt kicked up by the 4WD action!
The 2013 refined massive F4.6 Big Block engine is lower in overall height and lighter for a lower overall Center of Gravity and was designed for one thing and one thing only - huge amounts of horsepower! Nearly 3hp, in fact! Enough horsepower to get the all new Savage X 4.6 to speeds over 45mph (73kph)! And Big Block Torque is always on tap, just pull the throttle and you'll know you're not driving a small block. You want speed? You want torque? Well, you've got it!
The HPI Savage X 4.6 includes a Roto Start 2 starting system along with a Plazma battery pack and charger to get you up and running with little to no effort! To start your engine simply insert the Roto Start into the engine's back plate, press the trigger and away you go!
The Roto Start 2 features an engine save mechanism that helps protects the engine. The protection mechanism acts like a fuse; If an overload is caused by a flooded engine the fuse button will pop out and stop the Roto Start. After clearing out the flooded engine (as shown in the instruction manual) you just push the fuse button back in and start the engine as normal.
The designers at HPI wanted to make sure the Savage X 4.6 drivetrain could handle the extra power of the Nitro Star F4.6. The Savage drivetrain features a permanent 4WD system and spins on rubber-sealed ball bearings. The proven 2 speed transmission uses tough metal gears for durability, and has adjustable shift points for the ultimate tuning. The adjustable slipper clutch features a durable slipper pad, so there's less maintenance and more driving! To add extra strength, aluminum alloy differential cases are standard on the front and rear differentials, pre-installed and shimmed to extend the maintenance interval of the HPI 4-gear differential. Finally, to make sure you can stop this beast quickly, the all new Savage X 4.6 is equipped with a twin vented disk brake made from heat-resistant fiber material to give you more stopping power!
HPI Ready-To-Run vehicles bring you the same high quality and performance that you'd expect from a high end RC kit, but with the added convenience of being factory pre-assembled to only the highest of standards - giving you a high performance RC truck straight from the box!
HPI makes it as easy as possible to get into RC Off-Road action. The all new Savage X 4.6 is completely pre-built and ready to go right out of the box! Everything is assembled and tuned for you by professionals - shocks, differentials, suspension and more are perfect before you even open the package. And with many of the top Savage options already installed, you don't have to do a thing to get going fast!
As with all HPI cars and trucks, you get a full, in-depth instruction manual with step-by-step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your truck for maintenance and easy servicing. The manual also includes a handy parts list and full-scale drawings of the parts and hardware. And the included HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box!
With all of this power and durability, the jumping ability of the HPI Savage X 4.6 is unsurpassed by any other monster truck. With a top speed of over 45 MPH, hitting a ramp with something this size must be seen to be believed! Forward flips, back flips, double back flips and more stunts are easy with this much power and control! Landing the truck is easy with Big Bore shocks to absorb the landings and tough suspension parts that take the abuse of jumping with ease.
Combine all of this with the massive horsepower of the Big Block F4.6 engine and you get the roughest, toughest truck around!
