Default SAVAGE FLUX HP

Has anyone else seen this I NEED more info. A factory brushless savage, we knew it would come but I didn't think this soon. The ad says January so probably late Feb?

Oh by the way saw the ad in the new XRC pages 16-17

There actually is a new brushless E-Savage coming out. I heard about it a couple weeks ago from someone, the guy said it was supposed to have an MMM and a CC Neu 1512. Can't say that for sure because IDK if the guy was 100% sure about it, but that is what he said. Also told me that it is going to have a much stronger drive line than the original E-Savage. Can't wait to see it.

January 09' with the 5T and MBX6 on the cover. Definatly the MMM and mabye I'm smokin' but it looks like the 4.6X body and wheels, a longer wheel base and at least a new rear bumper. Can't see the chassis but it deosn't look like a E-ZILLA rebadge.

Ive heard alot of info on it which are rumors. Mainly what Ive been hearing is that it comes with a MMM, CCN 1512 or 1515, stronger drivetrain, upgraded axles, new body, new rims, new tires, upgraded shocks, stronger servo. This is what Ive been hearing from scattered sites.

Wonder how its going to compare price wise with the E-revo brushless. Looks like it could be pretty sweet though.

Both are going to be expensive as heck, the combo itself retails for almost 300, plus the car.. another 300 easily revo or savage.... looking to pay a pretty penny.


the finned motor shown (mine) is actually the one for the new e-revo

Ya its going to be up their no doubt. One thing is for sure though. If HPI is selling this combo under a different name like they do the flux 1/10 combo aka "SW combo" it will be more expensive than the MMM combo's sadly... Not even going to start with HPI's replacement part prices...

@deezyperformance
thx very much for the pics! looks nice. looking forward for more information from hpi.

a "sport" version would be nice. even better a kit version. but they didn't do that with the e savage so little hope on that one.

it would be cool if the whole suspension is from the gp savage. so all aftermarket parts would fit. as it states 8th scale, instead of 10th scale like the e svage, i hope this is the case at least for some parts.

bye

Another OEM deal for Castle? We need more competition in the high-power brushless monster market, doesn't anyone like novak or (???) anymore?
