The New RTR Savage X 4.6 -Tougher, Stronger, Faster!
The RTR Savage X 4.6 is our fastest and strongest ready-to-run Savage...
EVER! That's right, we've raised the bar by adding a massive F4.6 engine and
beefed up the chassis and drivetrain to handle the power. The result is a
truck that has enough Big Block power to do wheelies on command with a
scorching top speed of more than 45 MPH. A huge list of performance and
durability upgrades come standard in the RTR Savage X 4.6, so you know that
you've got a truck that can handle extreme off-road driving.
New Option Parts Included As Standard!
Diff with alloy case
Dual disk brake
Included with the Savage X 4.6 are two of our latest option parts:
#86827 Alloy Diff Cases and new stronger brake disks!
The Alloy Diff Cases prevent damage to the internal diff gears, even with the
power of a Big Block engine. The result is more driving and less maintenance!
New dual disk brakes provide more stopping power and are more fade-resistant
Savage X 4.6 Durability
Eight long coil-over shocks absorb any type of rough terrain you can throw
at the RTR Savage X 4.6, and beefy suspension arms and uprights can take the
punishment of big-air drops and top speed runs over bumpy terrain. Keeping
everything protected is the reinforced "X" TVP chassis, which features a
custom 'X' graphic. Structural webbing and extra screws have been added to the
central gearbox to improve durability, and add stiffness. Extra material was
added to the skid plates and bumper to help the Savage X 4.6 survive huge
jumps and crashes. The engine mount and engine plate are now thicker to give
you more durability and endurance, especially when you're landing massive
Savage X 4.6 Speed
The new F4.6 powerplant is designed for one thing and one thing only - huge
amounts of horsepower! Nearly 3hp, in fact! Enough horsepower to get the
Savage X 4.6 up to 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? You've got it!
The F4.6 engine is a new HPI high-power unit with the proven HPI Nitro Star
reliability, featuring 2.9hp from its .28 cubic inch displacement! A purple
anodized machined aluminum cooling head keeps the engine cool. Rough off-road
terrain and extreme stunts are not a problem with this engine! The F4.6
features true ABC construction (Aluminum piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve),
8 port tuning, a 7.5mm composite carburetor, heavy duty triple shoe clutch,
plus an updated Roto Start 2 electronic starting system for easy starting. A
dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and dirt kicked up by the
The F4.6 engine is so fast, in fact, that HPI designers made significant
improvements to the chassis, gear cases and other parts of the truck to beef
it up so it could handle the extra power! The F4.6 engine pumps out nearly 3
horsepower and sits on an improved engine mount and thicker engine plate to
give you more durability and endurance, especially when you're landing massive
Our designers 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, plus it
features an adjustable 2 speed transmission. To add extra strength, aluminum
alloy diff cases are now standard on the front and rear differentials,
pre-installed and shimmed to extend the maintenance interval of the HPI 4-gear
differential. The 17T clutch bell has been modified so it engages the spur
gear with extra consistency. A steel spacer is used on the clutch bell, which
provides more durability than the brass spacer. The adjustable slipper clutch
features a slipper pad made from a more durable material, so there's less
maintenance and more driving! Finally, to make sure you can stop this beast as
quickly, the Savage X 4.6 is equipped with a new twin vented disk brake made
from heat-resistant fiber material to give you more stopping power!
Go Where Buggies and Truggies Fear To Tread!
When normal 4WD can't cut it, when delicate racing parts fail, or when the
terrain is simply too terrifying to race on, that's when the big-block 1/8
scale Savage X series of trucks is in its element! Engineered for the most
brutal of environments and built for durability in the most extreme terrain,
the Savage X 4.6 is the ultimate 'basher' monster truck!
Fat, chunky treads on each wheel grip any type of terrain, whether wet or dry,
mud or tarmac. The full-time 4WD transmission pulls the truck over and through
anything in its path. Eight long coil-over shocks absorb huge drops and help
give extra traction on rough surfaces. Combine all this with the monster
horsepower of the new 2.9hp F4.6 engine, and you get the roughest, toughest
With all of this power and durability, the jumping ability of the 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! Back
flips, forward flips, double back flips and more stunts are easy with this
much power and control! Landing the truck is easy, too: big shocks absorb the
landings and tough suspension parts take the abuse of jumping with ease.
