The Savage XL - Extra Large Size and Mega Power!
Check out the new addition to the Savage line-up! The Savage XL is the extra-large, extra-tough and extra-powerful big brother to the Savage X monster truck. For improved stability and handling, the Savage XL has a 55mm longer wheelbase and a 25mm wider track. With a longer wheelbase, wider stance and huge 5.9cc (.36 cubic inch) engine, the Savage XL is ready to rock and roll right out of the box. The HPI design team added strategically strengthened hop-up parts to tame the massive K5.9 power for unmatched durability. The Savage XL soaks up the rough stuff with ease because it's the biggest, toughest, and most powerful Savage ever!
Awesome XL Looks!
The Savage XL definitely looks the part of the massive monster truck! The extended wheelbase is the perfect evolution of the Savage design, and the extended chassis and larger tires are a perfect match for the new, bigger 'GT Gigante' body!
The wide front grill and huge headlights of the GT Gigante body merge with the flared wheel arches front and rear for a huge 'wow factor,' adding to the impression of huge size and strength! The large Terra Pin tires fit the body perfectly for a scale monster truck look that's sure to intimidate the opposition at your local bashing arena! But the Savage XL isn't about just looking great, the HPI designers went all-out to make sure it performs as good as it looks!
Size does matter...
Bigger in every dimension than the standard Savage X, the Savage XL is longer, wider, taller, more ground clearance and tires that are nearly 7" in diameter! It's based on the practically indestructible Savage X chassis and features durability upgrades like thicker 3mm TVP chassis plates, 3mm alloy engine plate, machine-cut steel differential rings and pinion bevel gears, steel spur gear, heavy-duty clutchbell, extra heavy-duty dogbones, larger diff outdrives, machined brake hub, dual fiber disk brakes and much more!
New Upgraded Parts
Savage big-block monster trucks are legendary for their toughness in the most extreme conditions, and the XL goes even further. With all-new suspension and drivetrain parts designed to take the load of the biggest-ever Nitro Star engine, the Savage XL has what it takes to make it last!
The Savage XL has loads of features that make it easier to drive than shorter-wheelbase monster trucks, while making it tougher and more durable for jumping and in off-road conditions. Tall all-terrain tires, 8 shocks and plush double-wishbone suspension combine for reliable and predictable handling. Add in the new heavy duty suspension parts, strong bracing points and the famous Savage durability of the standard parts and you get one tough machine!
Like the rest of the Savage range, the XL uses a total of 8 oil-filled, long-stroke, coil over shocks to handle the suspension duties. Mounted at the bottom to the suspension arms and at the top to Savage X-style shock towers, the shocks can be easily adjusted to vary their position to suit your driving style or terrain. With easy ride height adjustment, you'll be able to set up the XL low for racing and high speeds runs, or quickly raise it for the rough stuff!
With heavy-duty bracing of all suspension parts, the hits can just keep on coming. Tough steel hinge pins and aluminum braces work with the high-impact nylon of the skid plates, bumpers and lower suspension parts to give the Savage XL a rock-solid foundation for ultimate mayhem! Experience for yourself the thrills of wild bashing sessions at top speed, while not having to worry about crash damage or parts failure - it's always a good time with the Savage XL!
Just like the other Savage monster trucks, the XL uses double wishbone suspension to get the power to the ground and soak up jumps and more. With lightweight Savage X-type suspension arms, tough molded upper links and super-tough hardware you have the peace of mind that comes with having control of the toughest monster truck around!
