The HPI Savage X 4.6 is legendary as the
most durable monster truck on the market; and now it's packed with
even more features! The monster truck that broke new ground in
durability, Big Block power, innovative design, and unrivaled
performance is making sure the competition stays on their toes.
It's better equipped than ever, with better handling, a better
radio, and an even better looking body. The updated Savage X 4.6
has it all!
Controlling the Savage X 4.6 is easy with the HPI 2.4GHz radio
system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio
prevents frequency conflicts automatically. With the adjustable,
built-in failsafe feature, you will be protected in case the radio
ever loses signal.
Four huge Big Bore shocks give the suspension action you need to
get out and blast through the roughest of tracks or Off-Road
terrain. The slick Nylon bodies are lightweight and strong, with
almost no 'stiction' between the shock piston and shock body. The
extra-large capacity gives you extra control and damping action so
you have the driving feel that makes Off-Road driving so much
The Savage X 4.6 features a new GT-3 truck body that's available in
two pre-painted color choices, Grey/Red/Black or Yellow/Pink/Black.
The GT-3 body comes completely trimmed, decaled and mounted for the
ultimate in ease. The intricate paint designs feature an action
sports inspired layout for concours quality appearance. And you can
always customize your truck with any of the clear or pre-painted
polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies
and other manufacturers as well! For great looks, the Savage X 4.6
is topped off with a clean set of black chrome Warlock wheels, a
grey anodized engine head, and orange anodized aluminum
The RTR Savage X 4.6 has beefy suspension arms that can take the
punishment of big-air drops and top speed runs over bumpy terrain.
Keeping everything protected is the reinforced "X" TVP (Twin
Vertical Plate) chassis, which features thick aluminum plates and
custom 'X' assets/images. Extra material was added to the skid
plates and bumper to help the Savage X 4.6 survive huge jumps and
crashes. The thick engine mount and engine plate give the truck
amazing durability and endurance, especially when you're landing
The Savage X 4.6 is the most user-friendly Savage ever, allowing
you to access all of the key areas with minimal disassembly. For
example, the center gearbox is split into four separate pieces to
allow for access from the top without dissembling the TVP's. Diff
access is also easier than ever with no chassis removal required.
No matter what part of the truck you are trying to access, it can
all be done in record breaking time! Check out the video to see just how easy it is to

The massive F4.6 Big Block engine is designed for one thing and one
thing only - huge amounts of horsepower! Nearly 3hp, in fact!
Enough horsepower to get the Savage X 4.6 to speeds over 45mph
(73kph)! And Big Block TORQUE is always on tap, just pull the
throttle and you'll know you're not driving a small block. You want
speed? You want torque? You've got it! The F4.6 engine has been
updated with a grey anodized machined aluminum cooling head that
keeps the engine cool. Rough off-road terrain and extreme stunts
are not a problem with this engine! The F4.6 features true ABC
construction (Aluminum piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve), 8 port
tuning, a 7.5mm composite carburetor, and a heavy duty triple shoe
clutch. A dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and
dirt kicked up by the 4WD action!
The RTR Savage X 4.6 includes a Roto Start 2 starting system to get
the engine running with minimal effort! To start your engine simply
insert the Roto Start into the engine's back plate, press the
trigger and away you go! The Roto Start 2 features an engine save
mechanism that protects the engine by acting like a fuse. If an
overload is caused by a flooded engine the fuse button will pop out
and stop the Roto Start. After clearing out the flooded engine (as
shown in the instruction manual) you simply push the fuse button
back in and start the engine as normal. To power the Roto Start 2
you just need to supply a standard 6-cell stick battery pack with
normal RC charging plug.
Our designers wanted to make sure the Savage X 4.6 drivetrain could
handle the extra power of the Nitro Star F4.6. The Savage
drivetrain features a permanent 4WD system and spins on
rubber-sealed ball bearings. The proven 2 speed transmission uses
tough metal gears for durability, and has adjustable shift points
for the ultimate tuning. To add extra strength, aluminum alloy diff
cases are standard on the front and rear differentials,
pre-installed and shimmed to extend the maintenance interval of the
HPI 4-gear differential. The adjustable slipper clutch features a
durable slipper pad, so there's less maintenance and more driving!
Finally, to make sure you can stop this beast quickly, the Savage X
4.6 is equipped with a twin vented disk brake made from
heat-resistant fiber material to give you more stopping

GO WHERE BUGGIES
AND TRUGGIES FEAR TO TREAD!
When normal 4WD can't cut it, when delicate racing parts fail, or
when the terrain is simply too terrifying for pure-bred race
vehicles, that's when the Big Block 1/8 scale Savage X 4.6 is in
its element! Engineered for the most brutal of environments and
built for durability in the most extreme terrain, the Savage X 4.6
is the ultimate 'basher' monster truck! Fat, chunky treads on each
wheel grip any type of terrain, whether wet or dry, mud or asphalt.
The full-time 4WD drivetrain pulls the truck over and through
anything in its path. Four Big Bore coil-over shocks absorb huge
drops and help give extra traction on rough surfaces. With all of
this power and durability, the jumping ability of the Savage X 4.6
is unsurpassed by any other monster truck. With a top speed of over
45 MPH, hitting a ramp with something this size must be seen to be
believed! Back flips, forward flips, double back flips and more
stunts are easy with this much power and control! Landing the truck
is easy with Big Bore shocks to absorb the landings and tough
suspension parts that take the abuse of jumping with ease. Combine
all of this with the massive horsepower of the Big Block F4.6
engine and you get the roughest, toughest truck around!
