    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Yeah, all the XS' TVP's have one part that isimperfect. i think they knew this and shaved it down so it will still fit together correctly.

    Honestly, as long as the screw goes through it and holds them together, then its only an aesthetics thing.

    ok if you say so , i havnt run it yet , i got it in peices now , what a pain to take this car apart and even do a pinion change. Im gonna try a biger pinion on 2s and 3s in a few days , swap out the radio for my futaba and most likely the servo to the traxxas 2075 before i put it together. even changing the servo looks like a big pain.

    Personally, I find working on any RC a pain. I hate to take them apart.

    so do i but this has been the toughest one for me so far and i have built and taken apart allot so you will have no fun with this one trust me. everything is a tight squeeze and a simple pinion change takes 30 minutes to an hour...

    The LVC is already set on the ESC from the factory from what the manual says. I checked mine and they were good to go.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I've been reading around. What is it the pinion that you guy are talking about (adjusting/tighten it up) I think i'm going to order one when its back in stock at towerhobbies. What are some adjustments that you guys made after getting truck before actually running it?

    I have not done anything to either my XS or my son's XS. And I probably won't unless we break something.

    the pinion gear is the cog on the shaft of the motor ... what people have mentioned in this thread relates to the small grub screw that holds the pinion gear to the shaft of the motor coming loose causing the shaft of the motor to spin but not the pinion gear. So there is no need to rush out and buy a pinion gear but if you find yourself pressing the throttle and the motor is revving but the truck won't move than it could be that the pinion gear is loose. hope that made it easier to understand

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I wanted to follow up with a post I made earlier about the pinion coming loose on my XS. Turns out, it was not the pinion (which had so much loctite from the factory, that I twisted my allen keys trying to remove), but the problem was the threads on the drive cup stripped which would not allow the slipper to tighten. There were metal shavings around the slipper pads and after a close inspection, I determined it to be the threads on the drive cup. There was also a lot of loctite used from the factory on the 10mm nut and drive cup. I called HPI and they are sending a replacement. I'm not sure I'm liking the slipper setup on the XS, but I'll have to wait and see how it goes once I replace the drive cup. As others have pointed out, access to the pinion is not a quick task and can take 30-60 min. to replace and put back together.

    I threw on the 34t high speed pinion the other night , a traxxas 2075 servo aswell and my own radio system. It easily wheelies on 2s with the 34t pinion and the servo is a little bit better than stock. I havnt done a full out run yet to check temps so that's next when I get a chance.

    Here is your post from the other thread. In your post you were asking some questions that were already answered in theis thread or you can find out your answers by visiting the HPI website.

    ORIGINAL: cumminspower5.9

    So i was looking around at new rc's to possibly get when i have the money (god knows when that is). I saw the savage flux ss. this thing is a killer rc! even though its smaller, it definitely puts my brushless bandit in the dirt. towerhobbies has them for around $300, which is what i bought my bandit for so no big deal. so tell me about this small flux... whats the motor? how long is it? weight? pros and cons of this little moster? thanks guys. im hoping sometime in the near future to won one of these. i love savage but because they are built right, thay are costly
    It is 1/3 smaller than the Savage FLUX HP. Basically a tad shorter than the Stampede. Savage Flux XS is 360mm long.
    The motor and esc are rebadged for HPI from Castle.
    Pros are great and the cons are few and far between.
