The Savage X 4.6 - A New Look for 2013
We're celebrating the most popular big-block RC monster truck in the world with the release of a fresh new body design! For 2013, we're introducing a stealthy new look for the Savage X 4.6, with a Silver/Black paint scheme alongside a Silver/Gunmetal scheme for a new take on monster truck looks!
The HPI Savage is legendary as the most durable monster truck ever, and now it's packed with even more features! The monster truck that broke new ground in durability, Big Block power, innovative design, and unrivaled performance is making sure the competition stays on their toes. It's better equipped than ever, with better handling, a better radio, and an even better looking body. The updated Savage X 4.6 has it all!
HPI TF-40 2.4GHz RADIO SYSTEM
Controlling the Savage X 4.6 is easy with the HPI 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. With the adjustable, built-in failsafe feature, you will be protected in case the radio ever loses signal.
The RTR Savage X 4.6 has beefy suspension arms that can take the punishment of big-air drops and top speed runs over bumpy terrain. Keeping everything protected is the reinforced "X" TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis, which features thick aluminum plates and custom 'X' assets/images. Extra material was added to the skid plates and bumper to help the Savage X 4.6 survive huge jumps and crashes. The thick engine mount and engine plate give the truck amazing durability and endurance, especially when you're landing massive jumps!
Big Block Power!
The massive F4.6 Big Block engine 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 to speeds over 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! Rough off-road terrain and extreme stunts are not a problem with this engine! You get toughness as well as speed: the F4.6 features true ABC construction (Aluminum piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve), 8 port tuning, a 7.5mm composite carburetor, and a heavy duty triple shoe clutch. A dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and dirt kicked up by the 4WD action!
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. The slick Nylon bodies are lightweight and strong, with almost no '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!
Tough 4WD Drivetrain
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. The proven 2 speed transmission uses tough metal gears for durability, and has adjustable shift points for the ultimate tuning. To add extra strength, aluminum alloy diff cases are standard on the front and rear differentials, pre-installed and shimmed to extend the maintenance interval of the HPI 4-gear differential. The adjustable slipper clutch features a durable slipper pad, so there's less maintenance and more driving! Finally, to make sure you can stop this beast quickly, the Savage X 4.6 is equipped with a twin vented disk brake made from heat-resistant fiber material to give you more stopping power!
The RTR Savage X 4.6 includes an improved Roto Start system to get the engine running with minimal effort! The new Roto Start features a pistol-grip design and a built-in one-way bearing to make starting and maintenance easy and simple! To start your engine simply insert the Roto Start into the engine's back plate, pull the trigger and away you go! To power the Roto Start you just need to supply a standard 6-cell stick battery pack with normal RC charging plug.
The Savage X 4.6 features the fantastic GT-3 truck body in Silver/Black. The GT-3 body comes completely trimmed, decaled and mounted for the ultimate in ease. The intricate paint designs feature an action sports inspired layout for concours quality appearance. And you can always customize your truck with any of the clear or pre-painted polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies and other manufacturers as well! For great looks, the Savage X 4.6 is topped off with a clean set of black chrome Warlock wheels, a grey anodized engine head, and orange anodized aluminum parts.
