HPI Racing has added a completely new 1/8th scale truck to its
market leading monster truck line up.
The new Hellfire is designed from scratch with only one goal: maximum performance in all conditions! No compromise – the Hellfire is not a converted buggy or tuned up monster truck. It is purpose built to be faster and give better handling than any other competitive truck.
A high level of attention to detail is paid in every area. HPI designers strove to increase performance, to reduce maintenance and to simplify chassis adjustments. The result is a new definition for "performance truck". Optimum Agility and Handling Hellfire features all-new suspension and steering geometries especially designed for best performance with big truck wheels and on rough terrain. A very low centre of gravitygives increased responsiveness and better chassis balance.
The Savage is HPI’s proven fun “basher” with oversized durability and maximum ground clearance. No Jump too big, no ground too deep, and no stunt too extreme – the Savage tackles it all.
Simply the King of Monster Trucks

Looking for maximum acceleration, agility, speed and handling? Then Hellfire is for you! No Compromise!
Hellfire is extremely light weight and powered by a new more powerful Nitro Star K4.6 HO engine. The new engine is based on the proven HPI Nitro Star K4.6 known from the Savage SS 4.6. The new “High Output” version provides increased horse power and more torque.

|Hellfire has been designed to allow for easier maintenance with simplified access to all parts. For example only 6 screws have to be removed to access the front or rear diff without dismantling the main chassis or suspension. High quality hex hardware is used throughout to reduce the possibility of stripped screws. All major suspension components are retained or captured without the use of E-clips. Maintenance is simplified and parts are held more securely in place.|
