    How was the heat on 3s t9?
    It was around 120F on the motor and 100F on the esc. I didn't bash it hard on the 3s like I do on the 2s. We did have a problem with my son's XS the pinion came loose and slid down the shaft to the motor. HPI should have made access to the pinion gear easier than they did.. But overall the truck still impresses me...

    hey guys my lhs just put my Savage XS on hold for me and will pick it up after work (yaay). Just wondering if stock gearing should be enough or already optimal on SPC 6000mAh, 30C, 2S, 7.4V?

    That should be fine if the battery fits in the battery compartment.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I dont have a lipo that fits [] After spending a few minutes looking for a on/off switch I see it does not have one

    On a side note it sure does sound ruff when you push it on the floor.

    One of the nice things about it, is that they finally did away with the stinken switch.. Yes they are ruff sounding, but it could also be the gear mesh.

    Yeah red no on/off switch , when you plug the battery in it will turn right on. It's almost as big as your kid lol , good luck with it.

    t9dragon: in this photo it seems the battery door isn't quite closed - can you confirm that it does close fine with this venom 5000mah 3s?

    Still have not decided on a battery yet, what do you think would be the best 3s lipo from hobbyking for this truck? Think I will get the wheelie bar and the sway bar kit aswell.

    It closes just fine. I have the door ajar to so that it has a tight fit.

    Just ordered a 2s and a 3s from hobbyking for $54 shipped.

    Hard case 2s

    soft case 3s

    Use this buddy price code and you can get the 3s for $22 Buddy Price

    You might have a hard time with the 2s hardcase lipos with the wires coming out of the side.
