    Thanks for the comment rologti

    IΒ*know I've done something wrong, but can't figure out exactly what.Β* Could you post a pic of how yours looks? (Assuming you're not at work)

    I've got the steering servo in place, the little annodized arm is connected to the servoΒ*pointing straight up.Β* There's a ball joint connected to that with a bar connecting it to theΒ*arm thats hitting the chassis

    Not sure thatexplanation is helping anybody...
    @work right now...here is 11:50AM...Uk is about 17:50 or 16:50...

    But 99.9% sure that your problem is the same that I had

    The servo saver has a shaft...by the side of the servo...that's your problem...

    Have whatsApp, BB messenger or something like that??..PM me and we talk

    Not sure if anybody noticed when they first got their xs, but after taking the motor wires out from the esc, the A wire was in the C in the esc, B was in B, and C was in A. if you put it all matching, it doesn;t work. wierd.

    I have the SS so I don't know....but the ESC should be programmed in "reverse" mode...could this be the reason???

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...



    Well, HPI has failed again. Yesterday, after 6 weeks, i finally recieved a package in which it was believed to be my ESC. Turns out, they sent me the bulkhead/esc mount parts! But no frickin esc. It even says on the paper inside (shipping order) that it was shipped. what the hell is going on over there. is it something in the California air?? I'm calling them today to complain about it, and i'm telling them to have it to me by Wednesday of next week at the latest. I did purchase a Castle 1410 system, but it is on backorder as well. So if anyone wants a NEW Flux Vapor Pro ESC, PM me. Remember these go for $130 on average. PM me if you want it and for how much.

    Haha well I just called them and they said the Flux Vapor ESC is still on backorder. So they sent me the mount first and the esc should be shipped to me in the next week or two. This sucks. Why not get a massive load of these esc if you know people are using the warranty for replacement? doesn't make any sense. So I should have that in about 2 weeks or so, and my castle sct system is on backorder and amainhobbies expects them to be in may 5th. this sucks []

    Normal.

    Depends which ESC is used. Some go one way, others go the other, and the way to resolve this is to swap the middle and either outside wire, which is often done during manufacture on RTRs.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    On the fence about selling my Savage XS SS. It's been problem after problem but for the few minutes I've been able to drive it's been a blast. Really considering selling it as a roller and getting an Axial Exo Terra since those from what I've seen/heard are actually built using quality parts.

    I also have the SS...true there are somethings that doesn't fit right.....and there are some parts that should be improved/changed...for example mine has a faulty shock...

    But I'm sure you have just bad luck...give it another oportunity....it's really fun

    BTW...I have 4 dogs...and my wife usually take a walk with them....since she is pregnant I usually go with her....yesterday I went with her and the XS...the greyhound (one of the four dogs) get crazy with the XS...some really nice races...in short races the XS win....long races...I still don't know...hahaha

    iTz Nicholas; I thought your build went quite well and being SS wouldn't be plagued by the ESC demons.  What problems have you been experiencing?

    Thanks to rologti my SS should be hitting the streets as soon as I can get my greasy mitts on some EC5 connectors.  Can't for the live of me work out why Deans are more popular than EC5.  Is it just familiarity?

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Wierd that they are on backorder, I just got mine a few days ago. Something isnt adding up here with HPI maybe the new batch they sent out is defective and they held them all back or something. I told them I wanted a Qbase and they said that was on backorder, kinda makes u wonder how they are still producing the cars with these on. Ifinall got my MMP back from CAstle and it was cutting out under quick accelation so I called and I had to order a 20$ BEC to make a 130$ ESCwork doent make sence either, but what ya gonna do seems like everyones quality sux these days.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I got the XS rtr and for the life of me I cant get this esc crap sorted out. I run it only on 2s and ive killed the Vapor. Then I install the MMP and on the second pack it went up in smoke. Less than 5min on the second pack too. The thermal cut off engages all the time and the wires, motor and esc a really hot. So hot infact that it turned black electrical tape white.

    I ran the stock vapor esc today on 3s and it lasted less than 5min. The red light came on and stayed on, there was still power to the steering servo, but nothing else. Before is died the truck would jerk and vibrate then quit.

    So now I have to send in the vapor esc to HPI and MMP to castle. Ive been reading this thread and have noticed that the SCT MMP might be a solution, as well as gearing down. another option is the X car HK 4000kv sensored motor paried with the MMP on 3s.

    The mods I have now are

    Proline Trenchers mounted on Desparados
    Hot Racing rear hubs
    Traxxas wheelie bar
    Hot racing springs
    ST racing wheelie king extended drive cups w/ custom spacers
    Blitz 12mm hex w/ 2mm pins

    I run Turingy 5000mAh 40c 2s and 3s batteries

    Does anyone have any ideas to solve this over heating issue?

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Did u gear it down with that bigger tire on there?  I had some problems with my MMP also they sent me a new one and now it glitched and cuts out,  It sdue to the MMPs weak bec though, ordered the external bec and it works like a champ.  Also you might have a motor issue, no need to get the ect mmp if you already have one just order a 1410 motor with the correct sized shaft and u should be ok.

    No I havent geared down yet, im about to do so actually. I have 24,26,28,30 tooth pinions what should i out in there now? Im thinking about the 30t

    This external BEC where can I find one? Hobby King?

    SO yesterday, I ran it on 3s and less than 5min of runnin the red light stayed on and wouldnt move or anything. This morning I plugged a 2s battery in and everything works just fine, so I tried the same 3s and it works too. IDK im so confused as to what the issue is here. One day the esc works, then next its dies and doesnt do anything. Then its back to working again.

    PROJECT XS!

    Ok, I don't really have anything, but I'm looking for a project and I thought my XS might be fun. I have seen the upgraded motors, esc's etc. I have upgraded several parts. But what I haven't seen done is something like was done over on Ultimaterc, the Chimera project.

    So I guess I'm looking for some ideas on what to do, to kinda make this thing a little different. I would like to be able to do a bit more of some crawling, though most would say then why buy the XS? But I'm just throwing out ideas. I really want to give this thing some more ground clearance. Does anyone know if any other Savage parts fit ? 

    Let me know what you think

    The shimming that the diffs, suspension, and that I broke a shock eyelet within 5 minutes of getting it running.

    It's not that it's a bad kit I just don't really like the Savage XS overall because it's size is somewhat awkward and I want something that can be bashed and raced.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Castle creations has the BEC on their site, u can find it on ebay also.  I finally got mine going again and wouldnt u know it I stripped the pinion gear on the motor, I had the motor in the correct spot on the clocking, but I guess a lack of lubrication ate it up.  So now I have cleaned out the transmission case of all the metal and plan on loading it up with a good bit of grease this time!  Hopefully this will end some of the major problems and I can get some serious bashing on.
