After owning this truck for 3 months I absolutely love it! Best nitro I've owned hands down. Requires some assembly and tuning of the throttle/brake EPAs before use but the durability, performance and fun factor easily make up for this. Engine is easy to break in and tune and even the stock tires work well. TVP chassis looks great and is very easy to clean. The radio (TF-40) is one of the best I've ever seen in an RTR and it's great that it comes out of the box with a "fail safe" in case it loses reception. A few things I've learned: 1) The glow igniter included doesn't work very well, spend $25 to get a good rechargeable one. 2) The throttle and steering servos are way under-powered and will burn out fast, plan on upgrading these soon after purchase. 3) The steering bellcranks use plastic bushings, replace w/ bearings to remove some slop and help w/ binding. 4) Buy the engine stop kit: $5 + 5 min install = no more pinching fuel lines! 5) The wheelie bar is really a necessary upgrade but you may have trouble getting the roto-start into the engine and you may have to get the pull start as an alternative.

This truck is great, the 4.6 big block is massive and pumps out great power. And indestructible, Iam big basher and I've put this truck to the test and I've never broke anything. I run the truck stock and it performs excellent. Way better than any traxxas truck I've ever owned. Everyone should buy this truck. And you'll see. Hpi got there sh** rite with the savage x 4.6!!!

I have owned most every 1/8 Nitro monster truck made and the savage X is my favorite. The X is more refined than the original. The suspension is easier to tune with only 4 shocks to deal with versus the originals 8 shocks. And the new 4.6 is easier to tune then the old S-25! And it is still just as tough as the original...Savage is the way to go in monster trucks if you want rugged, tough truck that can take extreme abuse right out of the box! Don't get me wrong I like my Revo. And the Revo does out handle a savage on the race track. But in my experiance the Revo is just not as tough as a Savage! At least not out of the box. I broke my Revo most every time I ran it till I got about another 500 bucks in metal gears and what not to make it more rugged. Savage has all metal gears stock! Are you listening Traxxas?!
