HPI Savage Flux HP Monster Truck at Mini Death Valley
At long last, after delay after delay, I was finally able to enjoy the first drive with my new Savage Flu!. This thing makes my Revo 3.3 from two years ago look like it was running a steam engine. The 4S 6000mAh Lipo's from SMC provide plenty of power, I can only imagine 6S packs in this thing, but I didn't feel like trashing the tranny. I changed the stock front and rear differential oil to 100k fluid for more traction and power to the ground. Beyond that, the truck is stock. For now......

HorizonRC.com Review - HPI Savage Flux Brushless RTR
The HPI Savage series of monster trucks has blazed its own path in the hands of drivers the world over. The original Savage was definitely different with its ultra-narrow TVP chassis, forward-only transmission and plush suspension. After some time they released an electric version called the E-Savage, which has been an excellent truck. With recent advancements in both LiPo battery technology and brushless motors HPI went to work to develop what they saw as the definitive electric RC monster truck in their new Savage Flux HP Brushless RTR. With a Flux Tork 2200 brushless motor, twin LiPo batteries, all-metal transmission and much more, the Flux has a lot of potential. We broke one out of the box to see exactly what it could do. Were we impressed? Oh yeah! Check the video out below for more information. Speed Specs: Savage Flux HP Brushless RTR Manufacturer HPI Racing Part Number HPI100646 Vehicle Class/Type Brushless Monster Truck Target Audience Intermediate to Advanced Electric Monster Truck Performance Enthusiast Kit/RTR/BND/ Race Roller RTR Test Items Used Orion 4800mAh LiPo Batteries (Orion has upgraded these to 5000mAh now) ORI14010 Final Thoughts I tested the Savage Flux where I thought most people would in their backyard. With two freshly charged Orion LiPos securely mounted in the battery bays I was eager to open up the throttle to see exactly how much monster this truck had buried inside its soul. I wasnt disappointed. I buzzed around the parking lot at first, just to get a feel for the truck. Even just breathing on the throttle induced a wheelie. This truck has a tremendous amount of torque under the hood and the Flux is not shy about showing what it has. If I grabbed more than just half throttle I could flip the Flux over on its lid without even trying. I knew that this could be a challenge to get all this power to the ground on the asphalt. With this in mind I decided to take the Flux to the grass, feeling it would be easier to control and get the power to the ground. The Flux was ideal in the grass thanks to the reduced traction and increased resistance of the surface. The reduced traction allowed the truck to spin the wheels instead of biting and flipping over. This actually made the experience a lot more enjoyable for me. I took a skateboard ramp with me to try to sky the Flux as high and far as possible. I was able to hit the ramp over and over and catch some major air each and every time. Whether I hit the face of the jump squarely or not, the Flux took it in stride. From time to time the Flux would land and flip on its lid but it never bent, broke or tweaked anything. When it comes down to durability the Flux is one tough sled. After tooling around in the yard I went back to the asphalt to do some high-speed passes. Even after tearing up the grass for five or six minutes I still had plenty of power and punch to pull wheelies on the asphalt with the Flux. If there would be one upgrade or hop-up I would highly suggest for owners of the Flux, it would be to add the optional wheelie bar. I can see how this could make the truck much easier to drive by eliminating the fear of flipping the truck over when accelerating too hard. In the end I have to say I had so much fun driving the Flux. This truck has so much power and is so durable that it invites you to hammer it over and over and over again. The brushless system provides serious power but you still get very good run times. With the Orion LiPo packs I saw run times of close to 12-minutes with good power through the entire run. The only reason I wouldnt necessarily recommend this truck for beginners is that it simply can be challenging to control under acceleration. However, if you have throttle control and a thirst for electric power and performance, the HPI Savage Flux is definitely worth your consideration. Questions? Comments?
