HPI release a new photo gallery of the monster truck Savage XS Flux Vaughn Gittin JR Edition. The truck is packs in everything you know and love about the neck snapping, standing backflippable Savage Flux. A Flux brushless powerplant provide you with the most menacing speed runs, legendary Savage durability that passes the bashing exam with flying colors, innovative TVP technology for a class leading design, and extreme monster truck appearance and ground clearance to conquer it all.
The compact Savage XS Flux is just 2/3 the size of a standard Savage FLUX XP, so it’s the perfect size for backyard tracks and smaller areas. The Savage XS Flux is built tough with an all-metal drivetrain so it can handle giant jumps and speeds over 65mph! The 4WD system provides excellent traction on any off-road or on-road surface you can throw at it. And it’s all built with legendary Savage toughness so you spend more time driving and less time wrenching.
The Savage XS Flux is ready to go right out of the box, including a 2.4GHz radio system and 3S-capable Flux brushless system. Just add your favorite Li-Po battery pack like the HPI Plazma 7.4V or 11.1V batteries and start driving!

The chassis for the Savage XS Flux is very similar to that of its big brother, the Savage FLUX HP that we all know and love – the backbone consists of the TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) design, formed from two 5mm chassis plates, with the diff cases at either end providing significant stiffness and the transmission casing and motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
All-metal Transmission Gears
The Savage XS Flux features all-metal transmission gears to make sure that power delivery is uninterrupted and every jolt of power gets from the motor to the tires efficiently and with no worry of damage to the gears. The whole drivetrain runs on ball bearings for optimal efficiency, extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds!
Ultra Tough Over-sized Suspension
The over-sized suspension design makes the Savage XS extremely tough and capable of handling even the wildest bashing action. Aluminum 12mm hex hubs allow the mounting of almost all standard 1/10th scale wheels.
All-Terrain 1/10th Oversize Tires
With the racing-style pin tread blocks of the 2.2″ PowerPin tires, you can go off-road to on-road with predictable handling. The center tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the small rubber blocks provide grip for off-road terrain like hard-packed dirt and gravel. The tires are mounted on bright green 2.2″ wheels for cool monster truck styling that matches the Fun-Haver styling of the Savage XS body. For maximum hop-up potential, the Savage XS Flux accepts a wide variety of 1/10th scale 2.2″ wheels and tires, making customizing your truck easy!
Silicone Filled Threaded Shocks
Four threaded shocks give the suspension action you need to get out and blast through the roughest of tracks or off-road terrain. Filled with silicone oil, the slick composite shock bodies are lightweight and strong, with almost no ‘stiction’ between the shock piston and shock body for smooth and consistent damping. You can also change the shock oil to change the handling, and the threaded shock bodies allow you to make simple and quick ride height changes – lower the ride height for on-road driving, and raise it all the way up for big-air stunts!
Flux MMH-4000 Motor
The Flux MMH-4000 motor delivers massive power – plenty of juice for instant wheelies and standing backflips! Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.
Flux EMH-3S ESC
With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux EMH-3S electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! The EMH-3S features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in tough conditions. The reversing function of the Flux EMH-3S ESC lets you easily back out of jams with ease. And for maximum adjustability it’s fully programmable with our optional #101856 Flux Reload ESC Program Box V2!
LiPo Battery Power
The Savage XS Flux is designed to use 2S or 3S LiPo packs. The battery box features vents to keep the battery pack cool while you’re hitting top speeds and hitting stunts with your friends! Out of the box, the Savage XS Flux is optimized for 2S Lipo Power. 2S gives the best balance of handling and performance. Standing backflips? No problem! But if you want to go for crazy top speed or simply brutal power upgrade to 3S LiPo batteries like the #106401 Plazma 11.1V 3200mAh! However, be aware with that much power you’ve got to know what you are doing! Depending on what you want to do and where you want to run the car you will have to adjust the gear ratio. Option parts #105809 & #6924 are required for 3S running in most situations like going off-road or doing stunt driving.
