    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...



    The rear camber is not adjustable on the RTR XS, just the kit version. The uprights cause this. If you have room to shim, do that instead of worrying about adjusstable links. That's pretty much all you can do. Mine are the same way, but I never worried about it. My tires don't wear odd and the truck drives fine too.

    Best thing to do, is figure out the way of movement, and try to counteract it or stiffen it up. Shim through all screw holes.

    Hi guys, real quick question. Ive been looking for hours and cant find the answer. My rear wheels are leaning inward quite a bit. Is this normal ? IĀ*cant seem to find anywhere on the XS this can be adjusted. Any help would be awesome.

    I would check the hinge pins. Last time I had excessive "camber" in the front, I had a broken hinge pin. If thats not it, then look for the slop (start behind the hex adapter with some shims) Ive noticed as I wear mine in, the wheels get more and more slop in them.

    Just buy the adjustable rear links and then your problem will be solved.

    Thanks for the info Ken. This camber problem is in the rear wheels. I'll try the shims on the hex's like you mentioned. Ihave read to order Traxxas p/n 2443. And to get three of them (2) for the front each side and one for rear. Im gonna check on ebay for them.

    Aslo gonna pick up a 2075 TRX servo too.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Hi guys just got my xs a week ago i was just able to drive it once cause of the bad weather. I have used it with my e revo vxls battery 2s 2200 mah 35-70c turnigy nanotech battery but after 5-10 minutes battery get way too hot then they are supposed to be and they got a little bigger. Why would that happen? I tought maybe because of impact then i put some soft materials in it that would prevent any kind of hard impact but i still have the problem. Btw I have 2x 2s 6000 mah nano tech turnigy on the way!!

    Because you need to use a lipo with a larger MAH, sounds like you could have damaged the battery.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    So whats the deal with this truck? I want one but I dont want to be replacing electronics in a few weeks or months. I dont beat on my vehicles and want something thats gonna last. I plan on running nimhs and may go to lipo 2s only but if I need to worry about the esc giving up the ghost , then I want no parts of it.

    You have to bind the radio to the receiver, and you also have to program the speed control (ESC). These are two seperate things you MUST do before running. This is all in the manual.

    The esc's were going up in smoke when they first came out. Mine did. It has caused me no issues since I had it replaced, which was about a year ago, so I'm pretty sure they fixed this issue. If it does happen, it is free replacement, but I dont see it happening. 2s will give you a better experience of the power of this truck rather than a NiMH battery. A 2s 5000mah 25c lipo can be had for around $25.

    do you have a specific batt in mind? I may pull the trigger tonight or tomorrow. I just wanted the reassurance that the problem was fixed. also on my search I found a cheap simple charger but it needs a power supply and most places are out of them, any idea where or what I can use? Thanks. Brian

How are they on overall ofroad conditions not race. And how is the size ckmpared to the stock ines and do they require gear ratio change. ? Thanks

    The Geolanders are a softer tire, more agressive, but not like the Pro-Line Badlands. I highly recommend the Badlands for any surface. They have amazing grip on any terrain, and do not wear fast at all. I can only see the Geolanders having a little more traction. I guess it all depends on what type of terrain you are running on. Either tire you decide on, gear changing is not necessary.

    With running on those terrains, I would recommend the Badlands. Not sure how they would do on sand tho. My XS is running the 2.2" Badlands. If you go to the 2.8" or 3.2" ones, you will have heat/gearing problems, but I don't see why you would need any tire size other than a 2.2" for this truck.
    I couldn't click the ebay link cause my work blocks it lol, but as long as it is a 25c minimum lipo, you will have no problems.

    No problem. The stock rims on the XS are 2.2" rims, so you want tot get the 2.2" Badlands as well. Let us know how you like them when you get them!
