Mind-Warping Speeds on
6S LiPo Power!
Take the award-winning and much-loved HPI Savage and replace the fire-breathing nitro engine with an overpowered electric motor - what do you get? The Savage Flux HP: a backflipping, super-fast monster of an electric truck! If you think the Savage X 4.6 is the wildest monster truck we've got, the Savage Flux HP is its electric twin! Powered by the awesome Flux Tork 2200 motor and twin battery packs for up to 6S of LiPo power, you will be pulling wheelies at the twitch of a finger, and getting air like nobody's business!
Easy plug-and-go convenience is the hallmark of electric RC trucks, and the Savage Flux HP is no different. Just plug in two matching battery packs and you are off and running! The Flux ELC-6S speed controller can handle massive amounts of power, and you can fit in up to 16 NiMH cells or 2 LiPo batteries (either 2S or 3S type). Want to break the speed limit with your monster truck? With the Savage Flux HP it's super-easy! With 2 3S LiPo batteries and on-road tires like our #4729 or #4731 mounted Phaltlines you can hit 62 mph (100km/h) with the pull of a trigger! The Savage Flux HP is equipped with as many super heavy-duty option parts as we could fit in, just so it can handle the power of the Flux Tork 2200 motor. We've equipped it with an all-metal gear transmission, steel spur gear, super heavy-duty dogbones, machine cut diff gears, 2.5mm TVP chassis plates, 3mm 7075 motor plate and dual 8mm billet motor clamps!
The Savage Flux HP is based on the already awesome Savage X chassis, and features a low-mounted Flux Tork 2200Kv motor in place of the big-block nitro engine, a powerful Flux ELC-6S speedo in place of the fuel tank, and twin battery boxes hanging on the outside 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! Everything else from the Savage X is carried over, including the tough all-metal gear drivetrain, extra-powerful 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 just a single nylon shock at each corner, in BIG BORE size for excellent control and traction on any surface. The Savage Flux HP is loaded with new and exciting features, read on to find out more!
Easy to Drive!
The Savage Flux HP is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – to drive, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To brake the truck and come to a stop, gently push away from you with your left index finger. It takes just seconds to get used to driving an RC car, and soon you'll be doing speed runs and jumps with ease!
Legendary Savage Durability
After over a decade of thrilling serious RC bashing performance, the HPI Savage has earned a reputation for being the toughest monster truck you can find. A pair of 2.5mm thick aluminum Twin Vertical Plates (TVP) provide the backbone of the Savage, and a thick 7075 aluminum motor plate holds the super-powerful Flux Tork 2200 motor in place. The Savage suspension is ultra-tough, with super-thick webbed suspension arms and uprights built to handle gigantic jumps, rough landings, rolls and full-speed crashes. Super heavy-duty, bulletproof drivetrain parts like thick steel dogbones, all-metal transmission gears, machined steel diff gears and metal diff cases make sure drivetrain can handle all the power of the Flux Tork 2200 motor. Huge Big Bore dual-stage oil-filled shocks tame the roughest landings and terrain, giving you total control at all times! The Savage Flux HP is simply the toughest electric monster truck you'll ever find!
Providing the power for the Savage Flux HP is a super-powerful HPI Flux brushless system, consisting of the Tork 2200 motor and Flux ELC-6S speed controller - both wholly impressive in their own right, but together they form an unstoppable power force!
The Flux Tork 2200 features the coolest motor case we've ever seen, 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 the upcoming 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 held down to the 3mm 7075 aluminum motor plate with two aluminum clamps so it won't move or shift under the immense amount of torque it can pull.
Please see our note below recommending LiPo batteries above 4000mAh and 25C to get the most out of the electronics in the Vorza Flux HP.
Controlling the Tork 2200 motor is the Flux ELC-6S electronic speed controller, the most powerful brushless speed controller we could fit in the Vorza Flux HP. 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! 6.5mm bullet connectors secure the motor wires for loss-free connection to the 12-gauge wires, and to connect to each battery pack we've attached two 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 speedo (literally) is an integrated cooling fan, which allows the speedo 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 ELC-6S 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.
Motor and Battery Combinations
The Flux Tork Brushless Motors requires very powerful batteries to get the most out of them - please make sure that you use the right combination! HPI highly recommend the use of LiPo batteries above 4000mAh and 25C. Using batteries with lower ratings, or the use of lower quality LiPo batteries, may cause damage to battery and/or speed control. Using batteries below the specified ratings may void the warranty of the speed controller and/or batteries. The term Kv refers to the number of RPMs that the motors will try to deliver per volt applied, and is a standard term for brushless motor power.
The Flux Tork 2200 motor sits extremely low in the chassis, providing as low a centre of gravity (CG) as possible, and the twin battery packs ride on the outside of the TVP chassis members, where the tuned pipe and fuel tank on a nitro-powered Savage would usually rest. 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 cooling vents for the batteries and brand new straps with key locks to secure the packs in place.
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! The diffs feature the all-new Machined Super Heavy Duty Bevel Gear Set, with extra-large bearings for extreme durability! These are tougher and stronger than all other available bevel gear sets for the Savage!
Machined Super Heavy Duty Diff Gears
Equipped with the new #102692 - Machined Bulletproof Diff Bevel Gear 29T / 9T Set, 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 insurance you'll want when you take the Savage Flux HP way off-road and into rough country! The thick diameter, larger ends and sleek black anodizing add up to all the assurance you'll want that the drivetrain 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 breakages or anything else!
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!
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 plenty of abuse and punishment, giving you plenty of big-air thrills before a parts breakages forces you to take a break.
Big Bore Nylon Shocks
Four huge Big Bore shocks give all 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!
Savage Wheelie Bar Included
The #85245 Wheelie Bar is included as standard equipment, 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 cool, predictable handling and very little drama. The centre tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the side treads and heavy-duty sidewall teeth grip any sort of dirt, mud, muck, leaves, etc., you can find on dirt roads or rutted fields. Drive with confidence knowing that the grip from your tires are the least of your worries.
