what kind of tire options we have for the xs? the stock tires are giving out for me and i dont think there are any foams on the stock
The manual has some tire and wheel options listed in the back.
Yeah i looked at those and most of them arent available on my lhs. I hoping other manufacturer tires like proline etc

My patients ran out with hpi and my esc. They've had it for week, don't expect to get to it until the end of this week, with shipping times I will be down 4 weeks. So I ordered a mamba max pro for the savage, should see it tomorrow, or Thursday. I'll either sell the stock one or find a new home for it in another vehicle.

Well at least you can run your XS again. I have to wait for HPI to get replacement parts so I can do a warranty claim after my XS took WOT and hit a brick wall.

Eyeballing std. 2.2 Truck tires vs the XS's wheels, the XS's wheel dimensions more closely resemble 1/10 buggy rear wheels than a standard 2.2 truck wheel. If any of you have stadium trucks, eyeball it. The dimensions probably aren't far off the old HPI Super RS4 wheels.

Sounds like you need to find a better clientele, Doc.

Might as well round this out.

Mr. Breton,

It's all in the spelling my friend...

pa·tience [pey-shuhns] noun
1. the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.

They have had mine since last monday, and still have not looked at it yet. When they do finally send the replacement, it'll take a week in shipping.

TBJ can you highlight all my grammer errors in red like the english teachers use too? I is very edjucated.

BYT - 4 pages...No Issues Reported

URC - 50+ pages....5 Smokers and 1 'just stopped working'. May have some crossover between this thread and URC...I see several identical user id's.

RCTech - No Forum?? I searched for Flux XS and Savage XS...nada...

Still not too shabby with all things considered.

-

The electronics thing will get worked out and I am sure HPI will take care of it....

I am impressed with the durability....

After owning Merv, MiniSlash, and a MiniSummit....with tons of broken shafts (Front and Rear center shafts and CVDs/Halfshafts)and bearing carriers....I can't wait to get the XS.
