    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...


    ORIGINAL: taberj47

    ok so i ran the savage this thing is effing retarded on 3s its like a totally different rc than the 2s runs but this thing needs heat sinks and a fan fur sure it was thermally shutting down every tens mins cause of the motor getting so warm and im thinking i may need to put a taller pinion gear in for less heat

    nice dude. i gotta see it on 3s. hopefully it doesnt go up either. screw that. on2s it will flip at half throttle, thats plenty for me. your stock diff cups are'nt gonna be able to handle 3s for long.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    We had a great day bashing our XS's... Mine finally decided to call it a day when the pinion came loose. In all today I broke a rear shock end and split the front arm (I got that one on video), my son made it the whole day without any broken parts.. I will post pics and more video once I get home the internet connection where we are staying is a little slow... But like I have said before the XS is one HELL of a truck....

    Can't wait to get mine running. Painted the body with a simple all white scheme and then went a little crazy with stickers. Looks pretty decent for a first time paint job.

    Does the chrome on the stock rims chip/peel?

    punch control. its how much of that 11.1 volts gets to that motor and how quickly. can make the difference of flipping over and not.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    So i just went out to try and run the flux. and i plugged in the battery and hit the throttle and nothing. it wasn't beeping either. so all the esc lights work... neutral-yellow, green-gas, red-reverse. and the fan works. all the bullet connectors are good. and i even tried recalibrating it, and nothing. i checked the reciever and everything is ok there. but when i hit the gas, nothing happens. same with reverse. battery is ok as well. am i the next culprit that has to send this in, and wait a month for a replacement? or what could be the issue.

    Sounds like it needs to be recalibrated to the radio or maybe you need to rebind the radio and receiver.

    well turns out the esc died. that was the problem. a small puff of blue smoke and a faint pop. whats the whole process to returning the esc? like how much would it cost? shouldnt it cost me just shipping since it is still under the manufacturers warranty? i got it back in november.

    I didn't think leopard motors made a 4 pole motor for 1/10 scale. Get the castle 1410 3800 runs cool even geared up on 3s and it is 4 pole.

    Now do you see what I mean about the pinion coming loose? No matter how much loctite and no matter how hard you tighten it, it always seems to eventually fall off.

    That's when you switch to red loctite never had a problem after the first day. I used the red just to be sure and it worked for me anyways. Getting the pinion off is a whole different story lol.

    I know they make 1/10 scale I just don't think they are 4 pole, the only 4 pole that I know they make is 1/8 scale. It doesn't say 4 pole anywhere that I can see but maybe I am wrong.

    As with any brushless setup you need to check temps often and gear accordingly, You can't expect to squeeze 60 mph out of a RC and not have issues with heat etc.

    That motor might have heat issues considering that it is a 380 motor with the bigger heatsink.

    This is the first time since I bought my XS (in Septmeber 2011) that the pinion gear has come loose and it might not even be an issue with the pinion gear, but that is my guess until I take it apart tonight. Also I don't mind fixing by RC's if they break that is just part what you have to do when you are in this hobby.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Well I got my XS torn apart and there are 2 issues. First one is the pinion gear set screw came loose and the second issue is that the motor mount screws also came loose. I guess all that hard pavement bashing worked some of the screws loose over time. I also noticed that the tires are starting to pull apart from the wheels. Crap, Now I can't find my loctite.
