Default Savage 5.9 ???

Maybe I'm behind on some of the recent MT news, but does anyone know anything about a new Savage coming out? With a 5.9 engine??? I thought the Savage X 4.6 was still relatively new, right? About a year now?

I havnt seen any official release about the 5.9, but I'm sure HPI has something new in the works.

It will be April or May when this truck hits the market.

It will have the 5.9, upgraded ring and pinon gears, big bore shocks, steel spur, and a Fm or 2.4mz radio.

I have insider information from my lhs, they have done this in the past and got it right, with the baja 5b

I dont think there will be a Savage gasser.

I really like the 4.6, cant see much improvment with the 5.9, performance wise, maybe more lowend torque.

I would like to see a rtr savage with the 4.6, better radio, a nice pipe, and steel spur with vented clutch bell, big bore shocks, right out of the box.

The 4.6 is just right for the Savage, plenty of speed, wheelies when you want them, and easy to tune.

Yea its true about the 3-speed, If you look at the pics of the savy that was posted up you can tell where you adjust 2nd and 3rd gear. From what I've seen it will be around the $600 range. It might go down though once it comes out.

Wow. 800$$$?? I'd never pay that much for a savage... I would just get an lst2, and then have some left over for a bunch of upgrades. I cant believe they didn't relocate the fuel tank though. They could have tried to put it behind the engine, with all that extra space they've created...

Totally different vehicle than the lst2 really. Both the regular savage and the xl I think. I think xl is all about size more than anything. I'd bet money that Traxxas and LST roll out a larger than large MT if the XL and Genesis 7.7 do well.

When you look at the pics of the regular savage next to it, you can see how really humongous that it really is!![X(]
