The Savage Flux HP - Jaw-Dropping Flux Power!
The Savage Flux HP is based on the proven Savage X chassis, and features a
low-mounted Flux Tork 2200Kv motor in place of the big-block nitro engine, a
powerful Flux Blur electronic speed control in place of the fuel tank, and
twin battery boxes 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!
Proven features from the Savage X are carried over, including the tough
all-metal gear drivetrain, powerful SF-5 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 one BIG
BORE shock absorber on each corner for excellent control and traction on any

The centerpiece of the Savage Flux HP is the Flux system, consisting of the
Tork 2200 motor and Blur electronic speed control - both impressive in their
own right, but together they form an unstoppable power force!
The Flux Tork 2200 features a motor case 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 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 mounted to the 3mm 7075 aluminum motor plate with two
8mm billet machined aluminum clamps so it won't move or shift under the
immense amount of torque of the brushless motor.
Controlling the Tork 2200 is the Flux Blur electronic speed control, 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 10-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 is an integrated cooling fan, which allows the electronic speed
control 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'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
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 aluminum plates, with the diff cases at
either end providing significant stiffness and the transmission casing and
motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
The Flux Tork 2200 motor sits extremely low in the chassis, providing as low a
center of gravity (CG) as possible, and the twin battery packs ride on the
outside of the TVP chassis for easy access. The low CG gives you extra control
and cornering ability, allowing you to rule the corners on the track and pull
off spectacular stunts to impress and wow your friends!
The picture to the right shows the Savage Flux HP chassis with the battery
case removed, showing you how low the motor sits in the chassis.
Twin Battery Power
Brushless motors like the Flux Tork 2200 are already super powerful with just
one battery compared to their older brushed ancestors, so you can imagine what
two battery packs will be able to provide! The Savage Flux HP can take up to
16 NiMH cells (split up with 2 x 6-cell, 2 x 7-cell or 2 x 8-cell battery
packs) or 2 LiPo packs of either 2S 7.4v or 3S 11.1v construction. The battery
boxes feature vents to keep the batteries cool, and we suggest using official
Deans zero-loss battery plugs.
Flux Tork 2200 Motor
The Flux Tork 2200 motor is one of the biggest and most powerful brushless
motors available, and was selected specifically for its massive power delivery
and voltage handling. It can take up to 25 volts of power, delivering hordes
of power - plenty of juice for instant wheelies and standing backflips! The
Tork 2200 is held in place with 2 machined 8mm billet aluminum motor clamps
secured to the 3mm 7075 alloy motor mount to prevent it moving once the gear
mesh is set. Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and
Flux Blur ESC
With the capacity to handle up to 6S LiPo power and more NiMH cells than can
actually fit in the Savage Flux HP, the Flux Blur electronic speed control can
take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more!
Fully programmable with our #100573 USB Programming Kit and fitted with fat
6mm bullet connectors, the Blur delivers power to the Tork 2200 motor in
massive gulps of voltage while the integrated cooling fan keeps everything at
a reasonable operating temperature.
All-Metal Transmission Gears
The Savage Flux HP features all-metal transmission gears to make sure that
power delivery is uninterrupted and every jolt of power gets from the motor to
the tires efficiently and with no worry of damage to the gears. The whole
drivetrain runs on rubber-sealed ball bearings for optimal efficiency, for
extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds!
XL Tough Suspension
The Savage Flux HP features the uprights designed for the larger tires and
weight of the Savage XL, giving you the assurance that you'll be able to deal
out the same abuse that all the other nitro-powered Savage trucks can handle!
Beefy parts mean the Savage Flux HP can take the abuse and punishment of
extreme off-road driving.
Machined Diff Gears
Equipped with #102246 Machined Super Heavy Duty Bevel Gears, you can be sure
that the diffs of the Savage Flux HP will last for a long time, taking the
punishment of the Flux Tork 2200 motor! The entire drivetrain can be upgraded
with all the option parts available to nitro Savage owners, letting you
upgrade and bulletproof your truck as desired.
Thick Super Heavy-Duty Dogbones
Extra-thick, super duty dogbones provide the durability you'll want when you
take the Savage Flux HP into rough country! The thick 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 Tork 2200 motor to the ground
without worrying about drivetrain damage!
Machined Steel Spur Gear
A machined steel spur gear is the perfect match for the power of the Tork 2200
motor. The pinion gear spins on a 5mm motor shaft and optional pinion gears
will be available after the Savage Flux HP is launched. With the all-metal
drivetrain running from the motor to transmission, and from the gearbox to the
diffs, you get a huge amount of drivetrain protection with gears that won't
strip, melt or break! You'll have security and peace of mind that your truck
will not only perform superbly, but last as long as possible in the roughest
of terrain and conditions!
Big Bore Nylon Shocks
Four huge Big Bore shocks give the suspension action you need to get out and
blast through the roughest of tracks or off-road terrain. With slick nylon
bodies they are lightweight and strong, with almost no friction '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!
SF-5 High Torque Metal Gear Steering Servo
HPI designers chose a super-strong, extra-tough high torque metal gear servo.
With nearly 9kg of force per centimeter (that's 126psi!), the SF-5 will get
the GT-2 tires turning easily 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
Savage Wheelie Bar Incluced
The #85245 is included as standard, ready for you to bolt on in case you want
to pull impressive wheelies to wow your friends. Want to pull off jaw-dropping
standing backflips without a ramp? Leave the wheelie bar off, we don't mind -
just be prepared for your friends to ask for the controller! It's OK if you
say no and tell them to get their own, though!
With the aggressive tread of the GT-2 tires, you can go off-road to on-road
with predictable handling. The center tread lines give you stability on paved
surfaces while the blocky tread pattern and heavy-duty sidewall teeth provide
grip for off-road terrain like dirt, mud, muck, leaves.
GT-2 Bodyshell with All-New Flame Paint Scheme
To give the sleek GT-2 body a new look we've wrapped it with the coolest
pre-painted paint scheme we've ever seen - dark grey and red flames give the
body an entirely new look and celebrate the unbelievable power of the Savage

reverse switches, a retractable aerial with sliding cover, easy access to
radio adjustments and simple AA battery replacement.
The new RF-6 2-channel receiver takes the commands from the transmitter and
transfers them reliably to the Flux Blur ESC and the steering servo. Taking
care of the steering duties for the Savage Flux HP is the tough metal-gear HPI
SF-5 high-torque servo, which has plenty of grunt to turn the front wheels at
low and high speeds, in any sort of terrain. A truck this size needs the power
and torque of a strong servo, and the SF-5 is just the ticket, providing
8.9kg/cm2 at 6 volts (that's 126 psi!) of power.
The HPI TF-3 radio gives you long-range and reliable communication with your
truck. Finally, if you ever want to upgrade your electronics you'll find it
extremely easy, because all of the electronics are standard-size RC components
with standard connectors. Any of the components can be upgraded or replaced
