Twin motors, electronic speed control and all radio equipment installed
Painted and trimmed bodyshell included for instant custom looks - choose
from monster truck or ATV style bodyshells
Pre-glued all-terrain tires grip every surface
Full manual included for easy repairs
The E-Savage isn't just about looking great, it's also a top performer,
with loads of horsepower and torque! Equipped with two powerful 550-type
motors, you'll experience massive hillclimbing power and blistering top speed!
Each motor has a cooling fan inside so they run cool and generate high power.
For 14.4 volts of electric off-road power a pair of extra long-lasting 7.2V
3300mAh batteries (not included with the Sport version) deliver the energy.
The batteries sit as low as possible in the chassis, and as close to the
center as possible, for the best handling and performance, whether you're on
the racing track or at a fun bashing session!
The E-Savage uses standard size 7.2V stick packs with standards connecters so
upgrading with optional batteries is easy.
Controlling everything is a special dual motor, dual battery GT 14.4 volt
electronic speed controller (ESC) which regulates the power to the motors. It
features a tall purple aluminum heatsink to shed any excess heat and also has
a reverse function so you can back out of trouble. With a fully proportional
throttle you'll have fine control over the E-Savage! Setup is a breeze, too: a
fully automatic setup function makes sure all you have to do is turn on the
ESC to get it dialled in - no complicated setup procedures are required!
The GT Escape charger that is included with the full kit versions of the
E-Savage is the perfect charger for the E-Savage! This is a fully-featured
fast charger that can charge TWO standard stick pack batteries at the same
time! The two 3300mAh batteries that are included with the full E-Savage kits
can be charged in about an hour with the GT Escape charger. The charger's 12v
input connects directly to your car's main battery or 12v accessory socket for
the ultimate in convenience and ease. This allows you to quickly charge the
batteries easily in your car as you drive to the track, or simply pop the
bonnet to charge at your pit table! The GT Escape will fast charge any stick
pack battery with standard RC plugs. You can also power the charger with mains
power using an additional 12v DC power supply (not included).

The E-Savage is based upon the strong foundation of the toughest RC monster
truck around - the Savage! With its Twin Vertical Plate (TVP) aluminum chassis
design, central transmission, 8 shock absorbers and dual wishbone suspension,
the E-Savage is ready for anything!
Getting the power of the twin GT550 motors to the ground is the E-Savage's
drivetrain, which features a racing-style twin plate slipper clutch, central
transmission, sealed gear diffs and sliding universal dogbones. Every
component uses sealed high efficiency ball bearings for efficiency, long life
With a complete Savage-inspired suspension, the E-Savage can take on and
conquer anything you throw at it! Long wishbone arms give the E-Savage loads
of ground clearance and plenty of suspension travel to let you get over any
type of terrain, and over any type of obstacle. Just like the 1/8 scale Savage
truck, the suspension is built for ultimate durability and extreme toughness!
Two shocks support each corner of the truck and absorb all the bumps and rough
landings the E-Savage will take as you bomb across the landscape! The final
link of the drivetrain is the telescoping driveshafts which work together with
the suspension and are super durable and extra-tough!
Big 5.4 inch all-terrain tires wrap around cool 5-spoke chrome wheels and
grip on every surface - tarmac, grass, dirt and more! The block pattern of the
tread ensures long life and stable grip on dirt and paved surfaces. The tires
are wrapped around high gloss chrome wheels, pre-glued with inner foams
pre-installed. The E-Savage uses a standard 14mm hex hub which makes the
E-Savage compatible with a huge variety of already available Savage wheels and
tires - so customizing your E-Savage is easy.
Adjustable Twin Plate Slipper Clutch for extra drivetrain durability
22 high efficiency ball bearings provide maximum efficiency
8 long-stroke oil-filled shocks soak up all bumps and jumps
Double wishbone fully independent suspension for great handling

THE FIRST ELECTRIC POWERED SAVAGE MONSTER TRUCK!
Electric power is the easy way to get into off-road monster trucks. Charge up,
switch on, and enjoy the ride. The E-Savage captures that ease and adds the
proven durability and extreme off-road capabilities of the famous line of
Savage trucks. You need a tough and powerful truck to handle electric off-roading,
and the E-Savage delivers.
TWIN VERTICAL PLATE CHASSIS
The Twin Vertical Plates (TVP) chassis design was inspired by the time-tested
durability of our Savage line. Twin Vertical Plates serve as the stable core
of the chassis design, providing the critical strength needed to stand up the
abuse of hard off-road driving. The rigid aluminum TVP chassis has a stylish
design that places the front, rear and center gear boxes between two upright
aluminum plates. With the V-shaped battery layout (VBL) we have placed the
batteries (the heaviest items on the truck) at the lowest possible position to
make the center of gravity very low for quick and precise handling.
SYMMETRICAL 4WD LAYOUT
The E-Savage has a symmetrical power train layout with twin motors located
around the center and twin batteries on the left and right sides of the
chassis. This layout creates excellent chassis balance to contribute to great
drivability on rough terrain and stability in high-speed driving. Full-time
4WD puts the power to the ground at all four corners, with 8 oil-filled shocks
to soak up the bumps. The result is a real go-anywhere monster truck.
TWIN PLATE SLIPPER CLUTCH
A high capacity twin plate slipper clutch is attached to the spur gear to
protect the drive system from impact while jumping. Placing the spur gear
between two slipper disks helps the drive train handle the power of the twin
motors and can be adjusted to track conditions.
COMPLETE SET OF BALL BEARINGS
Twenty two precision manufactured ball bearings are used in the drive train to
reduce maintenance and efficiently transmit the power of twin motors and twin
batteries to the tires.
(RTR version includes TF-3 tranmitter. Sport version includes TF-1
transmitter and excludes batteries and charger)
The reliable and sturdy HPI TF-3 radio controls the E-Savage, giving you
ultimate control in a fantastic, ergonomically designed radio! (The E-Savage
Sport uses the similar HPI TF-1) The steering wheel design makes you feel as
if you're actually driving the truck, and the trigger-style throttle and brake
controls provide you with finger-sensitive action when accelerating and
stopping! The radio transmitter features interchangeable frequency crystals,
servo reverse switches, a retractable aerial with sliding cover, easy access
to radio adjustments and simple battery replacement.
Taking the signals from the transmitter, the installed HPI RF-1 receiver uses
standard RC connectors to send your control signals to the SF-1 steering
servo, which controls the steering, and the forward/reverse speed controller.
The dual-motor, dual-battery 14.4v GT Speed Controller handles the throttle,
brake and reverse commands to both GT-550 motors, which give the E-Savage
awesome acceleration and power! With HPI electronics you'll get reliable
long-range connection and control for loads of fun!
You can also upgrade the electronics very easily! Because all of the
electronics are normal-size RC components with industry-standard connectors,
any or all of the components can be upgraded at any time, or moved into a
different RC vehicle in the future. The E-Savage will also accept any standard
540/550-size motors, and any RC stick-type battery pack.
