Featuring a wide range of improvements, a
huge jump in power and several option parts now as standard, the
Savage X 4.6 set a new standard for big block monster trucks when
it was first released. Now fitted with the brand new HPI TF-20
2.4GHz radio system, the Savage X 4.6 is now even better! The bar
has been raised again, once again showing why the Savage is the
most popular big block monster truck in the world! The Savage X 4.6
is the wildest, craziest and most stunt-capable Savage monster
truck available, so it's perfect for anyone looking to pull massive
air, rock out at the track and show off for your friends! If you're
more into massive, impressive size, check out the updated #104248 Savage XL, fitted with a gigantic K5.9
engine and bigger tyres, as well as the HPI 2.4GHz TF-20 radio
system. For awesome performance on a par with the Savage X 4.6 but
using electric power, look no further than the #104242 Savage Flux HP, now fitted with the
TF-20 2.4GHz radio and powered by dual battery packs and a huge
brushless motor! With the HPI Savage monster truck range fully
updated to 2.4GHz technology, the only choice you have to make is
how crazy you want to get!
2.4GHz Radio System
The Savage X 4.6, Savage XL and Savage Flux HP now include an
exclusive brand new HPI 2.4GHz radio system! This means you get to
experience DSSS (Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum) technology for
no-crystal, no-fuss driving enjoyment. You can just switch on the
radio and not have to worry about what channel anyone else is
running - just get out and drive! With failsafe tech, you get
additional peace of mind, because you won't have to worry about
battery failures or loss of radio contact - the RF-20 receiver has
it built right in!
Awesome Option Parts
Included As Standard!
Diff with alloy case
Dual disk brake
Included with the Savage X 4.6 are two of our latest option
parts: #86827 Alloy Diff Cases and new
stronger brake disks! The Alloy Diff Cases prevent damage
to the internal diff gears front and rear, keeping the engine's
horsepower where you want it - at the tyres! Helping all the extra
speed slow down are new red fibre brake disks, which are more
fade-resistant than ever before and withstand the brutal punishment
of the new F4.6 engine!
Savage X 4.6
Tough' Over-sized Suspension
Eight long coil-over shocks absorb anything type of rough terrain
you throw the truck at, and beefy suspension arms and uprights can
take the punishment of big-air drops and top speed runs over bumpy
terrain. Keeping everything protected is the cool-looking anodized
TVP chassis, which features a custom 'X' graphic. The enclosed
radio box has been redesigned on the Savage X models as well,
allowing you to add the #308 Battery Level Indicator and charging
jack for the receiver battery. The TVP (Twin Vertical Plate)
chassis plates have been modified at both ends in increase the
truck's durability. Structural webbing was added to the central
gearbox to improve its strength. Extra material was added to the
skid plates and bumper struts front and rear to let the Savage X SS
4.6 take on crashes and jumps. The engine mount and engine plate
are now thicker to give you more durability and endurance,
especially when you're landing massive jumps!
Savage X 4.6
Get that Savage X 4.6 engine going, and once again anyone watching
will be surprised at its speed! With enough power to pull long
wheelies with ease, the new F4.6 powerplant 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 up to 45mph
(73kph)! You want speed? You've got it! In one word, this new power
plant makes the Savage X 4.6 - FAST! The F4.6 engine is a new HPI
high-power unit with the proven HPI Nitro Star reliability,
featuring 2.9hp from its .28 cubic inch displacement! A
great-looking anodized solid aluminium cooling head looks the
business and does a great job of keep the engine cool! Rough
off-road terrain and extreme stunts are not a problem when this
engine is on the case! The F4.6 features true ABC construction
(Aluminium piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve), race-tuned 8 port
tuning, an 7.5mm composite carburettor, heavy duty triple shoe
clutch, plus a convenient Roto Start mechanism for easy starting. A
dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and dirt kicked
up by the power 4WD action! So fast, in fact, that HPI designers
made significant improvements to the chassis, gear cases and other
parts of the truck to beef it up so it could handle the extra
power! The F4.6 engine pumps out nearly 3 horsepower and sits on an
improved engine mount and thicker engine plate to give you more
durability and endurance, especially when you're landing massive
jumps! Little changes with big effect!
Our designers didn't ignore the drivetrain, either. We wanted to
make sure the Savage X 4.6 drivetrain could handle the extra power
of the Nitro Star F4.6! The stock Savage drivetrain already
features a permanent 4WD system and spins on rubber-sealed ball
bearings, plus it features an adjustable 2 speed transmission. To
add extra strength to all this, our designers added loads of
improvements and extra features. The 17T clutch bell has been
modified so it engages the spur gear with extra consistency. A
steel spacer is used in the clutch bell, which provides more
durability than the brass spacer. The adjustable slipper clutch
features a slipper pad made from a more durable material, so
there's less maintenance and more driving! Also, aluminium alloy
diff cases are now standard on the front and rear differentials,
which feature the HPI 4-gear differential. Finally, to make sure
you can stop this beast as quickly as you might need to, the Savage
X 4.6 is equipped with a new twin vented disk brake made from a
space-age heat-resistant fibre material to give you fantastic
Go Where Buggies
and Truggies Fear To Tread!
When normal 4WD can't cut it, when delicate racing parts fail, or
when the terrain is simply too terrifying to race on, that's when
the big-block 1/8 scale Savage X series of trucks is in its
element! Engineered for the most brutal of environments and built
for durability in the most extreme terrain, the Savage X 4.6 is the
ultimate 'basher' monster truck! Fat, chunky treads on each wheel
grip any type of terrain, whether wet or dry, mud or tarmac.
Full-time 4WD transmission pulls the truck over and through
anything in its path. Eight long coil-over shocks absorb huge drops
and help give extra traction on rough surfaces. Combine all this
with the monster horsepower of the 2.9hp F4.6 engine, and you get
the roughest, readiest truck around! With all this power and
durability, the jumping ability of the Savage X 4.6 is totally
unsurpassed by any other monster truck. With a top speed of over
70kph (43mph), hitting a ramp with something this size is something
that absolutely must be seen to be believed! Backflips, forward
flips, double backflips and more stunts are easy with this much
power and control! Landing the truck is easy, too: big shocks
absorb the landings and tough suspension parts take the abuse of
jumping with ease.

Failsafe Nitro racers have known for a long time that
having a working failsafe system is important for those 'just in
case' moments - some unforeseen event that could make their car go
out of control. With a truck as fast and large as the Savage X 4.6,
this is even more important! The failsafe ensures that should your
Savage monster truck ever lose radio signal, instead of flying out
of control it will come to a safe and controlled stop! There's
nothing like peace of mind.

you up and running with minimal effort! To start your engine simply
insert the Roto Start into the engine's back plate, press the
trigger and away you go! The Roto Start 2 features an engine save
mechanism that protects the engine in case of engine fuel flooding.
The protection mechanism acts like a fuse. In case of an overload
caused by a flooded engine the fuse button will pop out and stop
the Roto Start. After clearing the engine (as show on the RC Cars
DVD) you simply push the fuse button back in and start the engine
as normal. Roto Start 2 - It's the easiest way to get
