    You might have a hard time with the 2s hardcase lipos with the wires coming out of the side.
    I was looking at that, If need be I can mod the case to have the wires come out the end. the 2s is more for my CC-01 trail truck.

    Hey Red,

    Make sure your wires don't rub on the right rear wheel. I found that the battery wires and the leads coming from the ESC were a little to long so i had to route them thru the roll bar and back to the battery box.

    I did have to take my son's XS apart to get to the pinion gear. It isn't as easy as it looks to get it apart but it did go back together rather easily. They should have made the tranny case more accessible to get to the pinion then we wouldn't have to strip the truck down.

    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.
    in theory it should: 138.5mm long x 46mm wide x 24.5mm deep
    good news its perfect fit! the xs is as everyone says it is tough, fast and fun to play with. However my xs steers to the left even when I set the steering option on the included remote to counter it. Any way to fix it? is it a servo issue? this is how it come out of the box

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I just recieved my HPI FLUX XS yesterday. Read all the instructions, set it up as directed. I put in a 3S 30C battery and ran it for about 2 minutes and was just doing some fine tuning on the steering. When I brought it back to me for a adjustment the truck started to smoke. I removed the top and the wires melted right out of the ESC. Now no more fun. I barely got started. I called HPI and I am sending the ESC back to them so they can send me a new one. It just sucks that I have to wait another 2 to 3 weeks to have some fun. HPI customer service rocks so far and was really helpfull.  The shipping to IRAQ is pretty fast but I will just have to wait around to see if a new ESC will fix the problem. I just hope that there is nothing else wrong besides that.

    Remove the servo horn from the servo and recenter the servo and then re-attach the servo horn.

    WOW... Red, I am sorry to hear your ESC went smoking.... I think I will stay away from the 3s lipos until they get the problem fixed. But you know when they released the Flux there were issues with that ESC going up in smoke to. After a 1.5 years the ESC in my Flux quit but it never smoked..

    HPIhas been having a lot of issues! I seen it on mine and read in a lot of forums this issue is becoming a common problem. HPIneeds to fix this....if castle is having issues...switch to a better ESC. Mine melted and burned up after about 3 minutes of use. It is ridiculious...This should not happen!

    What other forums have you read that this is a common problem? Any issues I have ever had with HPI or Castle they have gladly fixed no questions asked.

    Hey guys, I was thinking about the issue of the ESC's going up in smoke.

    Has anyone changed the settings on the ESC before they ran it on 3s?
