    I couldn't tell you if they will work or not, hence the hub design is not visible. I bought HPI Monster SS rims to mount the Badlands on. Or you could rip the stock tire off the stock rim, and reglue the Badlands on the stock XS rims.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    So, 130+ pages of reading and I decided to pick up an XS last week. Mostly because it seems the people with problems over the last ~6+ months has been very minimal. The LHS I picked mine up from said he received it around xmas. As a data point I have over 10 packs of 2S thru it with no esc problems. My drive cups are wearing already. Is that something HPI will cover under warranty? I'll end up getting the hardend ones at some point. I did break the fake side battery box hitting a small concrete lip head on at full tilt. Just sheard right off. Weirdest thing to break on a head on collision. Front bumper is perfectly fine. Coming from on-road electric a hit like that would have destroyed my cars. I just picked up the broken piece, flipped the truck, and continued on. Since the servo is now exposed I decided to waterproof and install a Hitec HS-965MG. 139 tq and 0.10 sec. A nice power upgrade over stock but might be a little too fast. Handling now takes a much lighter touch.

    Also does anyone know if the esc fan speed is based on esc temp? My fan use to come on as soon as the battery was plugged in. Now, It's dead silent until I do some running. After a couple of minutes of 1/2 throttle running I can clearly hear it.

    BTW, not enough pictures/videos being posted.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I think nobody has been posting pics or videos because some people have gotten rid of them after a while, or gave them up because of the whole ESC issue when they first came out. A few people on here still have one, including myself. I drive mine whenever possible.

    I don't think HPI will cover the drive cups, as it would be under the category as "typical wear and tear". The stock drive cups do suck, but the only ones I have ever replace are the ones coming out of the transmission. I haven't replaced the nes goign into the front and rear diffs, but they should be replaced. Not sure about the fan, as mine has always come on once the battery is plugged in. If your ESC craps out, that will be replacd under warranty tho.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Changed my wheels tires once again,

    Was running stock xs ss rims with Carson 2.2 v tread spikes,

    These made a massive difference in grip compared to the rubbish stock tires,

    Came across a new set of thunder tiger ssk wheels and tires on eBay placed a bid got the lot for £8 shipped,

    I noticed that the thunder tiger wheels were the same width as the stock xs wheels but they have way more offset than the hpi rims,

    The rubber on the thunder tiger tires is much softer and lighter than the Carson tires,

    And the added stability from the extra offset on the rims make the xs a blast to drive,

    Ran a full pack through them and didn't roll the xs once even flat out into a corner it just drifts,

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I ran Carson pin spike 2.2 inch tires which are the same tire that comes on the tamiya Blackfoot and monster beetle,

    I have now changed them to thunder tiger ssk rims and tyres,

    Both these tire sets hook up on any surface and the thunder tiger ssk rims widen the xs by around an inch,

    Which makes it way more stable,

    Its me is that you?

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Hey guys. I'm new to brushless but not to RCing. My xs cuts out if I go from dead stop to mash full throttle. It jumps forward about a foot then stops and beeps. I'm thinking maybe its the battery? It's not a new lipo I got the whole rig used but everything is working fine other than that. Btw the lipo is a 4000mah 2s 25c. Its prolly old and puffs a little when under load
    If you\'\'re not breaking it you\'\'re not having fun!!!

    Check that the battery terminals are making good contact,

    I've had this happen on one of my lipos.

    Finally pics will upload!

    Pics of my xs ss with near 100% offset thunder tiger ssk rims with ssk tires,

    Handling has improved hugely, no more tipping over going around corners at speed

    The second last pic shows the offset on a stock hpi savage xs rim,

    Good choice on picking up the XS. I got mine back before Christmas also. Ive loved it since day one. Never had any problems with my ESC. Ive been running 2s lipo since new. I had pretty unusual wear on my drive cups also. Ive got spares standing by. Iwas actually in my LHS a few weeks ago and he had a complete roller with body and Rx, wheels , servo etc I picked it up for $100.00. Idismantled it for parts as needed. Ibeat the living shat outta mine and she holds up real well. I broken: a-arms, bearing carriers, batt door,2 shocksand 2 drive shafts. But Im doing back flips off snow banks and things like that. Ive got a set of 2.8 mashers on order for mine.

    Another thing I wanted to mention to you lock tite the grub screw on the pinion. Mine loosened and stripped once, and I shattered the pinion once too. I removed my antenna and tucked the wire into the Rx waterproof box. I know there are mixed feelings on this but Ive noticed no problems with operation or range, and imo looks better.

    I hooked up the castle link the other day. My Vapor Pro was running 1.34 firmware. I noticed an update to 1.39 and took the plunge. Only ran a couple of packs through it so far but no problems to report.

    Yes both wheels will work with the 2.2 badlands,

    Any 2.2 wheel and tire combo will go together,

    The hpi 3087 are the same wheel that came stock on my xs ss kit.

    Yes that part is what my friend bought. I use the stock gearing for 2s 6000mah and 25c and i think 3s will be waayy to much power at least for me. 2s is insane i cant think about 3s on this little beast! Good luck with fixing it. And i wanna ask you s.thing how much did the kit cost to you incl. electronics and all needed parts?

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    ok thanks will buy a couple of them if that fixes the clutch. the xs ss kit was on sale for $249 i didnt pay $380 Thats what there asking now way to much. and i bought a ezrun combo with program card for $90 and i just use the hobbyking GT-2 2.4ghz and that only cost me $20 and my 2s 6000mah battery was $25. So $385 and i had it going. glad i got the kit and built it myself now i know how to pull it apart. What do you have and what was your cost.. i thought hard about getting the xs flux but yer really glad i did get the kit... and are u sure thats all i need dosent seem like much i know i should pull the clutch apart now and just look but if im waiting a week for parts i dont want to loose any peices. do i need slipper hub set? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HPI-Racin...item35c47e1ae2 Am a bit worried it might not fix it properly thats all.. i mean when i first started looking for a replacement i came across this and nearly bought it http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Savage-Mi...item4d0a025854

    OK ive just pulled the motor and gearbox out.. i pulled off the gearbox cover and jammbed the gears and put an allen key through the transmission drive cups just to make sure its slipping and i could not get it to slip.... whats the go here when the car was together i could lightly put my foot ontop and rev it and it wouldnt move wheels would not spin. please help me get my head around it..

    the front diff dosent seem to be meshing properly when i turn it from the trans driveshaft it skips and is hard to turn where as the rear feels fine.. so is this the clutch aswell as a front diff drive gear???

    Okay well i just pulled the front diff apart to see the damage and all it seemed to be was that the driveshaft going into the diff had to much play and when it was fully out the pin that seats into the gear had room to come out.. so i found 4 small washers in the kit put them in there and it fixed it. (Manual said nothing about using washers there) just hope the rear dosent start doing the same thing as i used all 4 washers to be sure. im sure my clutch was slipping so im going to order new parts for it. waiting on new tires anyway so wont be running the truck for a week or more

    ALSO i think you definaltly right about 3s i think the front diff hasnt been working properly for a while now but i thought i was just getting more used to the truck and it seemed slower. cant wait to get him back to full speed and with new tires its going to be way more fun

    Just put it back together and took it for a quick spin before dark and it seems fine now.. so it was just the front diff drive gear having to much play. Cant wait to get my new tires. also do you guys find your savage xs rear tires face inward after a while.. whats with this still goes good normal maybe?? the tires im getting are HPI Dirt Bonz Tyre S Compound hope they will be ok couldnt really find any rims so im just going to mount them on the stock ones

    It definatly feels like the rear wheels are getting more power than the front... does anyone know if this is right?? Like if i drive it up against my foot and bring on the throttle rear tires spin but front dont quite... the rear transmission cup is showing some wear but the front barely any is this just beacause of the slipper im not to sure on how its all suppost to work.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    yes those fix the slipper clutch however your problem doesnt seem like that. Im sorry but i have no idea about more power going to the rear wheels. maybe you have putten a diff oil with higher weight on the rear, just an idea. if it was your slipper clutch than your motor will spin and make high revs but your wheels would just wont spin or spin pretty slow, slower than expected. i also have a mini revo which's diffs just keep getting f...ed up even sometimes with the shims.

    My wheels also arent all straight they have need some toe and camber adjustment but how? if someone can help with that i will be really happy.

    I was first thinking about buying the kit but didnt have enough money so i bought the rtr and also I couldnt find the kit here in Turkey.

    Yes well i fixed the front diff and it dosent seem to slip now so i cant wait for my new tires to give it a good test see if it will flip again. ive seen lots of aliminum upgrades for this kit thinking i will upgrade it all as things need replacing make it bulletproof. does any know if these tires would cause overheating and would they be good for sand http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/321034353...23.l2649  And i really dont like the stock suspention can anyone suggest the best upgrades. cheers

    For the tires i have no idea but i will be buying either 2.2 badland or the geolanders from hpi. They dont need any gearing change. For the suspension check out prolines power stroke suspensions.
