HPI Racing just announced the newly updated Savage X 4.6 nitro monster truck. For 2013, the Savage X 4.6 gets updated with a high quality 2.4Ghz radio system, black chrome wheels, new GT-3 truck body in two paint schemes, a set of new anodized aluminum parts, and a grey anodized aluminum engine head. The 2013 Savage X also includes 7.2v battery pack with AC charger for powering its Rotor Starter 2 electronic starting system.
The HPI Savage X 4.6 is legendary as the most durable monster truck on the market and it’s packed full of exciting 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, better handling, better radio, and even better looking. The 2013 Savage X 4.6 has it all!
2.4GHz Radio System
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. If the truck loses radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop.
Includes $65 Worth of Accessories
To help get your new Savage X 4.6 running as quickly as possible, we include more than $65 worth of accessories in the box! A rechargeable 7.2V Plazma battery pack and AC wall charger are included to power the Roto-Start 2 electronic starter, along with Plazma AA’s for your transmitter and receiver, a glow igniter, 4-way wrench, a fuel bottle and even an extra glow plug! Just add some HPI Power Fuel and you’re ready to start driving!
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 fun!
The Savage X 4.6 features a new GT-3 truck body that’s available in two pre-painted color choices, Gunmetal/Silver/Black and Black/Gunmetal/Silver. 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 parts.
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’ graphics. Extra material was added to the skid plates and bumper to help the Savage X 4.6 survive huge jumps and crashes. The engine mount and engine plate are now thicker to give you more durability and endurance, especially when you’re landing massive jumps!
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!
Refined Big Block Engine
The 2013 refined massive F4.6 Big Block engine is lighter and lower in overall height for a lower overall CG and 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 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 along with a Plazma battery pack and charger to get you up and 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. The protection mechanism acts 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.
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 power!
