    Hey my Savage Xs flux will turn but it won’t go. Describing the problem, basically pulling trigger nothing happens except changing the lights on the ESC. When I pulled the motor out, pulling the trigger just caused a very slight movement. From that it appears current is making it to the motor but not turning.

    It’s not bashing if u don’t break anything, this is jumping and running, if u want to see a bash check out my 1/16 e revo bash. Nice vid though

    if cost is an issue I would stay away. Its not HPI’s most durable product. It all depends how you run your kits but I beat them into submission so I mite not be the best advocate. If your looking for 4wd I would suggest a stamped 4×4 and if 2wd is what your looking for then you have tones of choices….Arrma granite, stampede 2wd(grave digger, monster mutt, etc..)

    For a basher on a budget would this be a good truck. i dont mind work but i mind cost of operation.

    Out of the Box the esc and transmitter were defective which HPI replaced @ no cost. Since then all the breakage was do to me beating this kit….LOL…I broke 3 dog bones and 2 stub axles. All from bashing on pavement and landing some bad back flips…LOL…Its a nice kit and turns alot of heads but I would sell mine in a heart beat. I dont get much use out of it.

    The Erevo 1/16 is a great platform. Each car has it’s advantages. The erevo handles much better than the Savage XS but isn’t as good of a basher. I do have both platforms and like them both. I love the big jumps because it’s a challenge to see how big you can go and Half the fun is repairing and rebuilding my kits. For me anyway. For the speed statement, I don’t think the Erevo is faster. I’ll take out my radar gun and do some test. Should have that footage soon

    IErevo 1/16 is better. Why do people feel
    The need to do huge jumps and destroy their cars then wright them off when they break? Just be careful! Erevo is much faster, and will Give far superior performance all round
