I think if it's based on the XL chassis which is pretty good sized than it would work.

well if the picture is of the actual model then its nitro. that cooling head looks like your typical nitro. I don't see an ignition coil/spark plug.

I know we have all been wanting a 1/5th savage, but if its a xl with a gas motor I'm gonna be let down.

My guess is that for this marketing promo, they just used a silhouette of an existing nitro-powered savage.

1/8 petrol is gonna suck i reckon not a big enough size to deal with a 2 stroke engine the weight of the engine alone would overtip a savage lol

It's going to be an 1/8th scale, so please continue this topic in the ( small crappy car ) section as it does not belong in ( GIANT SCALE ).[>:]

I said something about this to will happen a while back

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10..._1/key_/tm.htm Looks like instead of a 1/5 it will be 1/8 which I think is a better idea !

You predicted that other manufacturers would get on board with 1/5 scale. This is still HPI releasing another gasser. Did I read the wrong prediction?

I would imagine they would. I don't see them cramming a 23cc gasser engine onto an 1/8 vehicle, but I could be wrong.

Elven Wizard's Prediction's : I think in time you will see something released from Traxxas, Losi, and AE. First it will be from Traxxas. Hpi will have something new and not a 5b or 5t 4wd but a HPI 1/5 scale 4WD truck. I think it will be in less than 5 yrs time this will all happen.


If you read past the Traxxas part I mentioned Hpi. If you would of just moved your eyeballs a little bit further to the right, you would of read it. Just a little bit more. You were almost there. Please reread and give the other manufacturer a chance to bring out there 1/5 scale's. Hello, [X(] were still in a down economy.

I suppose you did kind of... almost.... sort of.... in a way... predict that this would come out.

This was posted in the hpi section and i did a little hunting and found a pic of it from hpi's own website.

And the pic of said 1/8th scale truck. You can clearly see it on the right with the spark plug wire and larger tires + body.

i think i found my next mt if that is the case...I actually enjoy 1/8th scale MTs a lot more than 1/5ths... Just I hate the 8min run time of a nitro. This product is perfect for me. hopefully the engine is good. Because the Savage line has its chassis and drivetrain completely ironed out. After owning a Savage Flux I have complete confidence in the Savage Model.

Looks to me as a 4.6 nitro

My guess the gasser could be 7.5cc
