After years of anticipation it has finally arrived, the HPI Savage XL Octane. I’ve been wanting to get a monstertruck for such a long time, but didn’t want to mess around with nitro or have a silent MT experience with electric, being a 5th scale passionate, this 2 stroke engine is the ticket. Today I managed to get my hands on one. I’m unboxing it, and will also tell you why this is my weapon of choice for my future hardcore bashing. I show you what comes in the kit, and will try to give you as many details as possible. This is a revolutionary new concept, and I think it will be a game changer for the RC hobby as we know it.
The following description comes from the HPI website:
“15cc Gasoline Engine,
We’ve taken the ground-breaking GT15C Octane engine, a 2.7hp, 15cc 2-stroke gasoline engine, and strapped it into the award-winning Savage XL long-wheelbase chassis for a one-of-a-kind RC experience! The Savage XL Octane has fistfuls of aggression, a gigantic size, lower fuel costs and extra-long runtimes – what more could you want?
The grunt from the Octane engine lets you throw up dirt roosts and blast through sand, leaves, mud and water with ease! The Savage XL Octane’s 3 speed transmission gives you quick acceleration from a standing start with super-efficient shifts for an experience you’ll never forget! The 4-shoe Quadra clutch gets the power from the engine to the drivetrain in no time flat, and the all-metal, ball bearing-supported 4WD shaft drivetrain is super-durable to handle whatever you come across. The XtraLarge wide track and XtraLarge wheelbase of the Savage XL chassis work with the XtraLarge Terra Pin tires to make the Savage XL Octane easy to drive and maneuver over and through jumps and obstacles…or whatever is in your way!
The Savage XL Octane is completely pre-built, just like all RTR (Ready To Run) vehicles from HPI Racing. The engine is a pull-start design, and easily starts with a single tug. Rechargeable HPI Plazma battery packs and AA batteries are included to power the hassle-free 2.4GHz radio system and engine control system – all you need to provide is pump gasoline and you are ready to rock!”
