Hpi Racing Savage XS Flux.
Just got it back. Here's a quick update. I just want to be clear. My
biggest complaint is the way HPI handled this breakdown. They accused me of
burning up the esc by using the wrong battery and then making me PAY to
ship their defective product!!!! If this truck last like my other cars and
trucks...I'll be happy with it. I DON'T PLAN ON BUYING ANY HPI products
anytime soon. THERE are too many options out there, =] Thanks for watching.

Time for a visual update! Let's start off with the wheels and tires of this
rig, I'm installing some Proline Trenchers and also give you a little info
on what I have planned for the bodyshell of the HPI Savage Octane XL.
I'm using some Protoform body tools to get everything shaped and prepared
The HPI Octane, being a new platform with so much new technology, is of
course something we need to get used to. As there is no available online
trouble shooting, the first buyers (like myself) will have to write the
additional manual ourselves. Rather than being labelled "guinea pig" on
such an early release, I would consider us who obtained the first vehicles
"explorers". This car has tremendous potential, once broken in it is
everything I had hoped it to be an more: it's LOUD, obnoxious, loves to
crush stuff, has a true monstertruck style of driving, without it ever
appearing off balance on higher speeds.
This car may not be for everyone, but if you have the knowledge, the
patience, and are curious about the future of monster truck RC's, this is
the car for you. Expect a few not-so-raw videos in the weeks to come,
testing, bashing and racing this car on several different surfaces, giving
it the abuse it was meant to handle.
My aim is to give you honest, unbiased information, I'm not sponsored in
any way. All I want is the hobby to progress.

Responses to Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do you have a video of/about _______?
A: Check by visiting my main channel page; hit the channel-specific search
box and enter a relevant keyword (fewer the better)
Q: Why haven't you made new videos in a long time?
A: My local RC track facility was forced to move a long ways away.
Meanwhile, nearly every open space in my heavily populated area (San
Francisco, California region) is *explicitly* off-limits to RCs and
regularly patrolled by rangers and/or police and I've been booted once too
many times. I've got no good place to legally drive & film within a
reasonable distance :(
Q: Why did you disable comments on your existing videos on this channel?
A: You know, *most* RC hobbyists are cool folks. YouTube though, harbors
an extraordinarily large population of the most vitriolic, extremist,
hyper-fanboys who make it their life's purpose for weeks at a time to
develop and then spread the most ridiculous fabricated stories to try to
tear down a guy who happened upon a little success & popularity as a result
of working hard & sharing something he loves to do. I'm not into that.
Normal human beings who want to chat up a storm about RCs can do so on the
forums where there's a sense of community as well as accountability.
Q: Is URC (which stands for UltimateRC.com) dead?
A: Silliest question of all time, hands down. Visit
