    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Anyone got a pic of this little beastie next to a 1/10 ST/Buggy/SC? Wondering how it stacks up.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Thanks! Seeing it next to a E-Sav helps a bit (I've seen the Flux compare pics, but not owning a Flux myself, it's hard to translate that into how big it is comared to the 1/10 stuff I do have).

    Still would like to see it next to a 1/10 buggy or ST though.

    Hey, cool - that helps seeing it next to the Pede (as I've owned one). Thanks!

    I can do a pic of it next to a Rustler if you want me too.

    Nah, that's cool - I saw your other post first (the other pics), which was nice...but the Pede compare really helped, as I owned one, and know the size/ground clearance, etc. [8D]

    Just got my flux all set up for my liking with some new HPI rims, Pro-Line Badlands, and some Dubro body clip retainers. Pics below. I think the black rims look bad a**!

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    Oh yea these tires and rim combo are taller than the stock rims and tires by about 3/4" (rough estimate). since i will only be running off road in short bursts with these tires and not at high speeds, should i change the pinion a little or am i ok with the stock one?

    Here's a little something I ran into that might save someone some money. Some people like to add 4 more shocks to give the truck dual shocks. Some also like to put Pro-line PowerStroke aluminum shocks on it too. Make sure you don't buy the Pro-line PowerStroke shocks if you are planning on giving it dual shocks, because they are too big to fit in the inner shock location. I ended up upgrading all the shocks, and just putting the stock shocks in the inner shock location. Now I have 4 spare Pro-line shocks.
    Just curious as to why you want to run 8 shocks on the XS?
    I jump it pretty high, and I don't like how easy it bottoms out.

    Yeah Ihear you on that one Ido a lot of running at the local skatepark and this thing bottoms out way to easily. What Idid to help with the bottoming out is Iput the aluminum shocks on with a stiff springs and 70 weight shock oil. Ihavent got to test it on any big jumps yet but so far the with the little ones Ihave been doing it seems to have helped.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    I would definitely follow temperatures with tires that big.  I haven't been able to keep a dubro clip on the front of the savage xs or hp, it seems the body is designed to scrape the hood.  Looking good, though. I will try to get some pics up tonight.

    It won't last long on mine either.  This body sits on top of the truck a lot more than the stock one.  The battery box is completely beneath it.  Next one will be the stock style again.  The T-bone front bumper isn't pretty either...

    yea i didnt know the tires were going to be that big till i put them on there lol. the rims and tores are 2.2" so... and i seem to have trouble keeping the back body clip holder on, prob cause the hole is justa bit too big. but temps seemed only a few degrees higher. just running short bursts shouldnt hurt it

    Just wanted to say I have been running the badlands for a few months now and my temps have been fine and I am also running a 32t. They have great traction on any surface I love em.

    awesome thanks man. yea these tires grip the same on the road and off road. i find it hard to keep the front end down. it'll still do backflips even on a 2s. i love these tires. they are soft and bouncy. and my truck seems to run much more quiet with them on there.

    Oh yea i also broke my first part last night!! i  was jumping the hell out of it, and i thought i broke the rear upright, but it was the only the plastic pivot piece that screws on to the bottom of the shock shaft. i dont remember what its called. luckily i had spares lol and i was up and running.so far, a pretty durable truck
