HPI Savage XL 5.9 RTR RC Gas Monster Truck - 10515
The Savage XL - Extra Large Size and Mega Power!
Awesome XL Looks!
The Savage XL definitely looks the part of the massive monster truck! The
extended wheelbase is the perfect evolution of the Savage design, and the
extended chassis and larger tires are a perfect match for the new, bigger 'GT
Size does matter...
Bigger in every dimension than the standard Savage X, the Savage XL is longer, wider, taller, more ground clearance and tires that are nearly 7" in diameter! It's based on the practically indestructible Savage X chassis and features durability upgrades like thicker 3mm TVP chassis plates, 3mm alloy engine plate, machine-cut steel differential rings and pinion bevel gears, steel spur gear, heavy-duty clutchbell, extra heavy-duty dogbones, larger diff outdrives, machined brake hub, dual fiber disk brakes and much more!
Extra-Long Alloy Chassis
To get the long wheelbase of the Savage XL, the HPI designers developed all-new extended TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis made from 3mm thick 6061 aluminum. 6061-series aluminum is light and strong and provides the strength for stretching the Savage platform to its limits! The chassis has Savage XL logos etched into the chassis to really make it stand out! The engine is fitted to a one-piece engine mount with an extra-thick 3mm engine mounting plate. These are the thickest TVP and engine plate parts ever offered on a Savage monster truck, giving the Savage XL the strength to withstand the torque of the massive Nitro Star K5.9 engine.
The Savage XL is loaded with new features that make it the perfect choice for anyone looking for a massive monster truck! Check out this hugely impressive list of new parts and custom features that are standard on the XL!
Huge Terra Pin All-Terrain Tires
The large Terra Pin tires and TVP style chassis help give the Savage XL massive ground clearance of over 3 inches, allowing it to go over obstacles that would stop other monster trucks in their tracks! The new Terra Pin tires stand tall at nearly 7" in diameter to soak up ruts, bumps, and rough landings. The tough spike pattern makes the Terra Pins great in grass and loose dirt, while the chevron center pattern give them directional stability on the harder surfaces. The tall sidewalls provide extra shock absorption and allow the tires to grip as they roll over obstacles.
3 Speed Transmission Installed
The Savage XL features the Savage 3-speed transmission to get the most out of the huge torque from the K5.9 engine. Metal gears with the new high-speed 3rd gear give you legendary durability, consistent shifting, quick acceleration and high top speed. The transmission is fully adjustable, so you can choose when the Savage XL will shift into higher gear!
Wider Stance & 17mm Hex Hubs
To widen the stance of the Savage XL we added extended aluminum axles with 17mm hex hubs. These are lightweight and tough, and fit standard 17mm hex monster truck and truggy wheels. Serrated steel wheel nuts grip the wheels to keep them locked in place, making sure that you'll never see a wheel bouncing past your truck!
New Tougher Suspension Uprights
The XL features all-new uprights designed for the power and weight of this massive beast! Beefier parts means the truck can take more abuse and punishment, giving you plenty of big-air thrills without breaking parts.
Reinforced All-Metal Differentials
The Savage XL continues the tradition of tough, overbuilt HPI monster trucks with several new drivetrain parts that are a standard part of the Savage XL's arsenal of tricks. Machined steel diff rings and pinion bevel gears are built to take the power of 5.9cc of nitro-burning mayhem. Alloy diff cases and 4-gear diffs with new larger diff outdrives and axles round out the ultra-strong differentials.
Larger Diff Outdrives
Getting the power to the dogbones are larger, thicker and stronger diff outdrive cups. These machined steel outdrives can take the punishment of the K5.9 engine to get you through the toughest driving conditions!
New extra-thick dogbones provide the insurance you'll want when you take the XL into rough country! The thicker diameter and larger ends add up to a drivetrain that won't let you down when the going gets tough! You'll be able to commit the full power of the K5.9 engine to the ground!
Machined Steel Spur Gear
A machined steel 52T spur gear is the perfect match for the horsepower of the Nitro Star K5.9 engine. With a heavy-duty vented clutchbell spinning the spur gear, you get a huge amount of drivetrain protection with gears that won't strip, melt or break in the roughest of terrain and conditions!
Aluminum Three-Shoe Clutch
The Savage XL uses a new 3-shoe aluminum clutch to get the power from the engine to the drivetrain. The aluminum clutch shoes will resist wear and engine heat for extra life and consistent launches. There's no more secure way to get the power to the ground!
High Torque Metal Gear Steering Servo
The HPI designers chose a super-strong, extra-tough high torque metal gear servo for the Savage XL. With nearly 9kg of force per centimeter, the SF-5 will get turn the large Terra Pin tires for responsive steering at any speed! There's no need to upgrade the servo - this baby's got it all! With the bellcrank steering and built-in servo saver, you can be sure that the SF-5 will be fully protected against crash damage or bad landings!
Rechargeable Receiver Pack and Charger
To make sure the servos have all the power they need and then some, we're throwing in an HPI 6 volt 1200mAh NiMH battery pack! This rechargeable pack even includes a convenient wall charger so you can make sure that the XL is always ready to rumble! You don't even need to take the pack out of the truck to charge it - just use the convenient charging jack built into the radio box and you're ready to go!
Easy to Drive!
All this power and durability gets you nowhere unless the truck is easy to
drive and can get you through the rough stuff, so the HPI designers made sure
that the Savage XL can take everything you can through it at and come through
handling like a champ!
New Upgraded Parts
Savage big-block monster trucks are legendary for their toughness in the
most extreme conditions, and the XL goes even further. With all-new suspension
and drivetrain parts designed to take the load of the biggest-ever Nitro Star
engine, the Savage XL has what it takes to make it last!
At the heart of the Savage XL is the all-new, monstrous Nitro Star K5.9 engine! This 5.9cc (.36 cubic inch) powerplant gives the XL loads of torque for turning the giant tires.The K5.9 engine delivers the muscle and grunt that you'll want for powering the Savage XL over any type of terrain and through any obstacle! The massive K5.9 powerband supplies the torque for getting the XL up to speed quickly, and the curved manifold and aluminum tuned pipe get the most power out of the engine, and a giant heatsink head so you won't have to worry about overheating! The K5.9 is fitted with a Roto-Start 2 electric starter system for easy starting. A vented heavy-duty clutchbell and aluminum 3-shoe clutch are standard equipment for tough and reliable power transfer.
Tuned Exhaust System
With a curved rear-exhaust manifold directing exhaust gases to the polished aluminum 2-chamber tuned pipe, the specialized K5.9 exhaust system produces loads of horsepower that just demands to be used! The exhaust system is spring-loaded to enable it to withstand the brutal landings of big-air jumps and driving over any type of terrain, and is designed just for the K5.9 engine to produce maximum punch and monstrous top speeds!
Tough ABC Construction
With true ABC construction (Aluminum case and piston, Brass Chrome-plated cylinder), the Nitro Star K5.9 delivers massive torque and horsepower and long engine life. The three-needle carburetor uses a 9.5mm inlet to get in as much fuel as possible and uses a composite body to prevent heat from the engine case affecting the fuel supply. A huge flow-through finned aluminum heatsink head keeps things cool, and even features sweet laser-etched logos!
Dual-Stage Air Filter
A dual stage pre-oiled air filter is used to keep dirt and fine particles of dust from entering the engine. The air filter is securely mounted on a 90-degree rubber tube so it is placed in the perfect position and stay in place through any type of driving.
Roto Start 2 Installed
Get things going quickly with the Roto Start 2 electric starting system pre-installed onto the back of the engine. The Roto Start 2 replaces the standard pullstarter with a handheld shaft-drive starting unit so you don't have to deal with pullstarting the engine by hand. Just install a charged 7.2v stick-pack battery into the Roto Start 2 hand unit, insert the shaft into the back of the engine, press the button and you're off! It doesn't get any easier!
