    $50 more then tower...
    They have them for only $5 more than what Tower has them listed for,now if you used the Tower $50 off coupon they would be $50 cheaper. And Tower says late September till they are in stock.

    I guess that means a second batch is being built right now?

    Mine will be here by the end of the week at the earliest. It doesn't matter, I'm gone for two weeks and can't touch it anyways.

    Here are some videos from our bashing today. We were running from the grass to the pavement, so the trucks took a hard beating.

    Nice vids bro!

    I'd say that the mystery car is a Mini T with an Exotek chassis...or something to that affect...

    I am going to run 3s in mine when we go bashing Wednesday night. And I will post videos of it.. I have a few more short videos that I need to load..

    Does any one know of a good video editing program that is free where I can merge them into on video???

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I disassembled the whole truck last night , I decided to hang on to it for a bit. It's now in pieces , I have a question to those who own one. The tvps on the bottom of the chassis snap into each other , there is one that does not on the bottom of the chassis. Looks like it could be a defect , does anyone else have this problem ? I know I saw someone with the same problem a few pages back. Just want to make sure before I change the pinion. And put the whole truck back together which is a pain.

    I think the mini revo batts will be a bit small for this, but I may be wrong.

    The batteries for the Mini Revo won't old up in the XS, they are just to small in every aspect.

    Well since you asked.... It is made by HPI and based off of the Savage line of trucks which in my opinoin and with stand a bashing better than any other monster truck that is out there.
    Also the XS uses 1/10 electronics where as the Mini Revo doesn't.. and you can also use 2.2 tires on a XS without any modifications. Those are big pluses for me..

    Ok, bigger motor, 2.2 tires... that's a sale for me...
    Also sounds like this would be better for my girlfriends 12year old son, who loves to bash or should I say smash rc trucks! LOL
    Ill have to check Tower and see if they have them in stock....
    Thank you

    My LHS has one in stock.

    I got one for my 10yr old son and he loves it... In the videos I did he is the one driving and if it can handle the way he bashes then it will hold up in any circumstance.
