The Savage XL is the super-large, massively powerful and extra-tough bigger brother to the Savage monster trucks. With an XtraLong TVP chassis, XtraLong wheelbase, XtraLarge stance and XtraLarge 5.9cc engine, the Savage XL is ready to rock and roll over any kind of terrain right out of the box!
Bigger in every dimension than all other 1/8th scale monster trucks, the XL is taller, longer and wider, with a longer wheelbase, more ground clearance and tires nearly 7 inches across! It’s based on the nearly indestructible Savage X chassis, but features even more durability upgrades like XtraLong 3mm TVP plates and engine mount, XtraLarge Terra Pin tires, XtraLarge width, XtraLarge Big Bore shocks, XtraLarge body with an all-new look, sintered metal differential gears, steel spur gear, heavy duty clutchbell, heavy-duty dogbones, outdrives and axles, machined brake hub, dual fibre disk brakes and much more!
The Savage XL package comes 99% complete - all you have to do is add HPI Power Fuel and you've got a fully-functioning nitro-powered monster truck! In the box you get: AA batteries for the transmitter, a rechargeable receiver pack to power the truck's servos, a Roto Start handheld engine starter with battery, and a wall charger for both the receiver pack and Roto Start battery. Just add fuel!
The Savage XL is loaded with standard features that make it the perfect choice for anyone looking for a super-tough, massive monster truck!
To get the wheelbase of the Savage XL 55mm longer than a standard Savage X, the XL uses an extended TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis that is made from 3mm thick 6061 aircraft alumnium. 6061-series aluminum is light and strong and provides the strength for stretching the Savage platform to its limits! The chassis features the cool Savage 'X' styling, plus extra design features to really make it stand out! The engine is fitted to a one-piece engine mount firmly attached to a 3mm extra thick engine mounting plate that is mounted between the TVP chassis for extra rigidity. These are the thickest standard TVP and engine plate parts ever used on a Savage monster truck, and can easily withstand the torque of the massive Nitro Star K5.9 engine.
The Savage XL features the Savage 3-speed transmission to get the most out of the K5.9 engine. This gives you the best acceleration and top speed possible, getting all the power efficiently to the ground for maximum fun and enjoyment! The transmission is fully adjustable, too, so you can choose how early or late the XL will shift into higher gear!
