    Looks nice, but a little too low to the ground for me.

    The one that hit the wall full throttle only popped the front left axle out. But I am not sure what caused it to go WOT, I thought these had a fail safe that wouldn't let that happen.

    As for the one with the front axle damage. It was my fault as to the bent axle I landed one to many 5ft jumps on that side.

    But hey it ain't no fun if you don't break something right........ Still a hell of a lot better basher than the Mini Revo could ever dream of being....

    HPI really made a mistake with how the front uprights go together. They should have used screws to hold them together instead of pins that I can't get out.

    ORIGINAL: nitrohawker

    I don't know about a $75 off but I know there is $50 off $300 out there. I used one when I ordered mine. I added 2 four packs of batteries to get my total over $300. The club price on the truck is $294.99 so factor that in too.

    Any chance you could share the code? I sogned up for the SS club today and paid the fee, but so far they haven't sent me anything. I'm assuming it will show up eventually but I really want to get this thing on order...

    Hi t9dragon,

    Did you manage to remove them ?

    Are these parts you refer to ?

    Have you lost 106889 "Foam spacer" ?

    The pins marked with the red arrows are the ones I can't get out.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Still on the fence.
    I cant decide between the Flux XS or the 1/16 Summit.
    Here are the pros and cons in my opinion.
    my opinions on speed and stability are based on running on 2s and not 3s.

    Summit Pros
    Water proof
    Available in my area. lol
    Looks better
    Has more ground clearance
    easier to work on then the Flux
    Plenty of hop ups available

    Summit cons
    small electronics including the motor and servo.
    flips more but I can sacrifice stability for ground clearance.,

    Flux XS pros.
    I think it's faster than the Summit
    Durable.
    water proof
    1/10 scale electronics including motor and steering servo.

    Flux XS cons.
    Not available in my area right now.
    Very new to market and it will take a while for aftermarket parts and that will only happen depending on sales.
    More difficult to work on that the Summit
    Less ground clearance
    Doesn't look as good to me
    If it\'\'\'\'\'\'\'\'s not broke, fix it until it is

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I have the flux xs and a mini revo-summit (mini revo with summit rockers and wheels 1/10 scale castle cm36 4600 on it) and yes the flux xs is faster stock out of the box and it a lot more stable a lot less flipping. It's really a tough choice as both are great little trucks but I actually think I like my flux xs a little better. Also I think they are both fairly easy to work on, and another pro for the flux xs is full sized batteries.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Well, the money was burning a hole in my pocket so I went out and got a mini Summit. I like it a lot, although the suspension is really soft right out of the box. It will need some thicker shock oil for sure. It was surprisingly fast and torquey on one 6 cell nimh.
    As soon as the Flux becomes available in my area, I will get one of those as well. That way, my son and I can take turns seeing who's the best
    Well, typical RCUniverse is having trouble with pics again so here you go

    Mine looks nice on the shelf... I was going to put my Mamba Max esc in it, But I decided just to wait for the replacement esc to show up. I am waiting on lipos from hobbyking anyways.

    Cool, thanks for posting that. I'll have to see if they'll let me change coupons on my HPI SAVAGE FLUX XS backorder. Don't really want to talk about coupons, as there's not really much to talk about, but sure is nice to see people trying to help others out where they can.

    Get over it, every post in every thread is never going to be "EXACTLY" on topic. and complaining about it won't help either. That is the last I will say about it.

    Everytime I look at A-main hobbies site the date moves up. A week ago it was at Late Sept. Then it moved to 10/7.
    Tower is keeping the date as Late Sept.

    From what I understand the esc doesn't have a problem unless you run 3s. Is that right? And I believe from a review video I saw, 3s is entirely unnecessary.
