Default My T.H. order is all here! :)

Never bought from Tower Hobbies until last week. So far there prices and shipping is killer!

The last of the order got here today and now ready to BASH!

I hope HPI rebates are legit. I'll be sending off for them this weekend.

Awesome bunch of trucks! I'm especially interested in the Bullet MT Flux. It seems to bridge the gap between the XS Flux and the full sized Savages.

The bullet MT flux has so far been a lot of fun. The ESC was super easy to program and has a ton of power on 2S 5000mah. It will flip over on it's back when I hit the throttle(punch power on ESC 100%). I did have to mod the battery box a bit so that the deans connector would fit snuggly inside the box.

The truck has taken some nasty spills and the only issue i've had was a turnbuckle came off. I found it, snapped it back on and went back out.

Also TH sent me some killer coupons that brought the price down $50 so I couldn't pass it up! PLUS THE REBATE!!!

So far I have been running both the MT and XS on 2S 20C 5000 Gens Ace Lipos. I see that the HPI site says the MT flux can handle 3S. Would I need to change out the gearing on the MT to handle 3S? My Savage runs perfect and I don't care to try 3S but the MT being a little bigger I feel could use the extra power.

I don't care about more top speed as much as more off the line punch power.

So would I need to change out the swap out the stock gear?

Just pulled the trigger on the HPI Savage X 4.6 It sucks that Tower Hobbies doesn't have 1 hour shipping.

For years I've had to watch my friends bash their Savage but never thought about getting one myself. The XS has been a hella fun but I think I'm ready to try the BIG brother out!
