FS/WTT: HPI Racing Savage X F4.1 (56K warning) (got electric touring car?)

I'm selling my Savage X F4.1 RC 4WD truck. Was broken-in using the heat-cycle method. Truck has minimal wear on it, and is very reliable. Only failed once since I bought it brand new in 2007 due to stripping the original spur gear last December. Engine can idle all day long without cutting out. Wheelies on command if ran a little leaner.

Has all the basic upgrades already done. Includes a Hitec HS-645MG steering servo, stock high-torque steering servo is now used for throttle, stainless steel dual disc brakes, throttle failsafe, 5 cell receiver hump pack, HPI Polished pipe, and a Du-Bro exhaust deflector. I've also put on Du-Bro body clip retainers on the body (never loose those pesky clips again!)

Also included is a selection of new and opened spare parts including O-rings, metal shafts, extra rubber-sealed wheel bearings, 4-bevel-gear diff conversion kits (for Savage 21 as the Savage X already has 4-bevel-gear diffs, but works great for rebuilds), extra screws and a few other items.

I've also done the Ofna fuel tank modification to this truck to eliminate the half-tank-lean issue that most all Savages have. I fabricated a custom aluminum shelf to mount the Ofna fuel tank to and used threaded rod to secure the tank.

After-run oil was put in after every day of running and the piston was always set to bottom-dead-center before storing it on a small scissor jack to relieve the suspension.

This package in total includes the truck, transmitter, RotoStart2 unit, all the spare parts, and a glow plug ignitor (turned out the glow plug ignitor was a dud).

The only items you'll need are a battery charger, a standard 6-cell shotgun battery pack, receiver battery charge leads, 8 'AA' batteries for the transmitter, and some fuel (I recommend Trinity Monster Horsepower 20%)...and a glow plug ignitor.

This truck does have some cosmetic flaws, however nothing unusual for a semi-regularly driven truck. The body has quite a few scratches, the engine cage has severe road rash on it as well as the rear body posts, the final drive shafts have some surface rust on them, and the engine head has a scratch on the right side, but nothing that affects the function of the truck. Skidplates have obligatory scratches as well as the bumpers.

This is by far the best nitro R/C vehicle I have owned (and I've owned at least a dozen different nitro trucks alone), and I wouldn't be selling it if I had more time to drive it. It is the easiest truck I've had to work on, most robust, most reliable, and thus the most enjoyable.

$300 $280 shipped OBO. Local pickup available. Currently in northern SLO county, but I'm also in the Ventura/Oxnard/Camarillo area every couple of weeks.

I don't know how much these things depreciate, but I originally paid over $400 for the truck alone back in May of 2007, and that was before all of the upgrades which tacked on at least another $100.

I have excellent feedback on RCUniverse.com under the same screen name.

Price lowered. C'mon, there's gotta be some R/C'ers on here. I'm selling this to make room/downsize and get an electric 1/10th scale touring car. Speaking of which, if you have an electric touring car (Associated TC3/TC4 or HPI E10/Sprint 2 or the like), I'd be willing to trade. Brushless preferred.

I'd love to have another nitro truck but so many things I have to pay for as is, like a wedding. I just sold my R/C boats,my rock crawler is on ebay. I'm down to a lipo/brushless mini t. Good luck with the sale and a bump for a nice r/c truck.

Thanks. My sister had a Mini-T Pro with a Mamba 8000kv brushless setup. Paired with a 3S3P li-poly and geared taller with all ESC settings to mo' powah, it went so fast that it was gone in an instant and it was barely controllable.

On one run, she took off and I intercepted the Mini-T with my Traxxas Stampede powered by a Novak SS5800. When the Mini-T was hit at full throttle, it was knocked off its wheels and bounced and tumbled and skidded down the street for a good 40-50 feet. :shock: My neighbor, who witnessed the entire thing, thought the Mini-T was totaled, but aside from a severely damaged body and chipped paint, it was fine. Man, I loved that thing.

As far as the Pede, I broke the left front suspension arm when it hit the Mini-T, sending it into a spin/slide and the truck crashed into the curb, breaking the right front suspension arm. :x :P
