The Savage Flux 2350 – Optimized for 4S LiPo Power!
The Savage Flux 2350 is guaranteed to wow you and your friends! Powered by the awesome Flux Alphastar 2350 motor
and 4S LiPo power, you will be pulling wheelies at the twitch of a finger, cracking the speed limit and pulling off crazy stunts!
Easy plug-and-go convenience is the hallmark of electric
RC trucks, and the Savage Flux 2350 is no different. Just plug in two matching battery packs and you are off and running! The Flux Q-Base speedo can handle massive amounts of power, and you can fit in up to 14 NiMH cells or 2S LiPo batteries (2S type).
With the Savage Flux 2350 and a pair of 2S LiPo batteries it's super-easy to hit the speed limit!
The Savage Flux 2350 is equipped with as many tough option parts as we could fit in, so it can handle the awesome power of the Flux Alphastar 2350 motor. It's fully kitted out with an all-metal gear transmission, steel spur gear, super heavy-duty dogbones, machine cut diff gears, 2.5mm TVP chassis plates, 3mm 7075 motor plate and dual 8mm billet motor clamps!
The Savage Flux 2350 is based on the already awesome Savage X chassis, and features a low-mounted Flux Alphastar 2350Kv motor in place of the big-block nitro engine, a powerful Flux brushless Q-Base speedo in place of the fuel tank, and twin battery boxes hanging on the outside to hold a variety of battery types. Power your Savage Flux 2350 with either NiMH batteries from 6- to 7-cell size, or dual LiPo batteries with 2S 7.4v power!
Everything else from the Savage X is carried over, including the tough all-metal gear drivetrain, powerful SF-5 metal-gear servo, machine-cut diff gears and legendary Savage suspension parts and shock towers for extreme durability! The BIG BORE nylon-body shocks at each corner give excellent control and traction on any surface, with super-smooth feel and outstanding performance.

The chassis for the Savage Flux 2350 is very similar to the nitro-powered Savage that we all know and love - the backbone consists of the TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) design, formed from two 2.5mm aluminium plates, with the diff cases at either end providing significant stiffness and the transmissiong casing and motor plate forming load-bearing members of the structure.
The Flux Alphastar 2350 motor sits extremely low in the chassis, providing as low a centre of gravity (CG) as possible, and the twin battery packs ride on the outside of the TVP chassis members, where the tuned pipe and fuel tank on a nitro-powered Savage would usually rest. The low CG gives you extra control and cornering ability, allowing you to rule the corners on the track and pull off spectacular stunts to impress and wow your friends!
The picture to the right shows the Savage Flux 2350 chassis with the battery case removed, showing you how low the motor sits in the chassis.
Twin Battery Power
Brushless motors like the Flux Alphastar 2350 are already super powerful with just one battery compared to their older brushed ancestors, so you can imagine what two battery packs will be able to provide! The Savage Flux 2350 can take up to 14 NiMH cells (split up with 2 x 6-cell or 2 x 7-cell) or 2 LiPo packs of 2S 7.4v construction. The production battery boxes will feature loads of vents to keep the batteries cool, and we suggest using official Deans zero-loss battery plugs.
Flux Alphastar 2350 Motor
The Flux 2350 motor is optimized for 4S LiPo power, making it one of the biggest and most powerful brushless motors available, and was selected specifically for its massive power delivery and voltage handling. Option pinion gears are also available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery!
Flux Q-Base ESC
With the capacity to handle either NiMH or 4S LiPo power, the Flux Q-Base speedo is versatile, powerful and amazingly fast! The Q-Base delivers power to the Flux Alphastar 2350 motor in massive gulps of voltage while the integrated cooling fan keeps everything at a reasonable operating temperature.
All-Metal Transmission Gears
The Savage Flux 2350 features all-metal transmission gears to make sure that power delivery is uninterrupted and every jolt of power gets from the motor to the tyres efficiently and with no worry of damage to the gears. The whole drivetrain runs on rubber-sealed ball bearings for optimal efficiency, for extra-long runtimes and mega-fast top speeds! The diffs feature the all-new Machined Super Heavy Duty Bevel Gear Set, with extra-large bearings for extreme durability! These are tougher and stronger than all other available bevel gear sets for the Savage!
XL Tough Suspension
The Savage Flux 2350 features the uprights designed for the larger tyres and weight of the Savage XL, giving you the assurance that you'll be able to deal out the same abuse that all the other nitro-powered Savage trucks can handle! Beefy parts mean the Savage Flux 2350 can take plenty of abuse and punishment, giving you plenty of big-air thrills before a parts breakages forces you to take a break.
Machined Super Heavy Duty Diff Gears
Equipped with the new #102692
- Machined Bulletproof Diff Bevel Gear 29T / 9T Set, you can be sure that the diffs of the Savage Flux 2350 will last for a long time, taking the punishment of the Flux Alphastar 2350 motor! The entire drivetrain is fully outfitted with all the latest Savage option parts available to nitro Savage owners, so you know it's Savage-tough!
Thick Super Heavy-Duty Dogbones
Extra-thick, super duty dogbones provide the insurance you'll want when you take the Savage Flux 2350 way off-road and into rough country! The thick diameter, larger ends and sleek black anodizing add up to all the assurance you'll want that the drivetrain won't let you down when the going gets tough! You'll be able to commit the full power of the Alphastar 2350 motor to the ground without worrying about drivetrain breakages or anything else!
Machined Steel Spur Gear
A machined steel spur gear is the perfect match for the power of the Alphastar 2350 motor. The pinion gear spins on a 5mm motor shaft and optional pinion gears will be available after the Savage Flux 2350 is launched. With the all-metal drivetrain running from the motor to transmission, and from the gearbox to the diffs, you get a huge amount of drivetrain protection with gears that won't strip, melt or break! You'll have security and peace of mind that your truck will not only perform superbly, but last as long as possible in the roughest of terrain and conditions!
Big Bore Nylon Shocks
Four huge Big Bore shocks give all the suspension action you need to get out and blast through the roughest of tracks or off-road terrain. With slick nylon bodies they are lightweight and strong, with almost no friction 'stiction' between the shock piston and shock body. The extra-large capacity gives you extra control and damping action so you have the driving feel that makes off-road driving so much fun!
SF-5 High Torque Metal Gear Steering Servo
HPI designers settled on a super-strong, extra-tough high torque metal gear servo. With nearly 9kg of force per centimeter (that's 126psi!), the SF-5 will get the GT-2 tyres turning easily at any speed! There's no need to upgrade the servo for anything else - this baby's got it all! With the bellcrank steering and built-in servo saver, you can be sure that the SF-5 will be fully protected against crash damage or bad landings, too!
Savage Wheelie Bar Included
is included as standard, ready for you to bolt on in case you want to pull impressive wheelies to wow your friends. Want to pull off jaw-dropping standing backflips without a ramp? Leave the wheelie bar off, we don't mind - just be prepared for your friends to ask for the controller! It's OK if you say no and tell them to get their own, though!
With the aggressive tread of the GT-2 tyres, you can go off-road to on-road with cool, predictable handling and very little drama. The centre tread lines give you stability on paved surfaces while the side treads and heavy-duty sidewall teeth grip any sort of dirt, mud, muck, leaves, etc., you can find on dirt roads or rutted fields. Drive with confidence knowing that the grip from your tyres are the least of your worries.
GT-2 Bodyshell with All-New Blue Flame Paint Scheme
To give the sleek GT-2 bodysheel a whole new look, we've wrapped it with the coolest pre-painted paint scheme we've ever seen - dark grey and cool blue flames give the truck bodyshell an entirely new look and celebrates the unbelievable power of the Flux motor and Q-Base speedo combination.
RTR - PERFORMANCE STRAIGHT FROM THE BOX
HPI makes it as easy as possible for beginners to get into RC off-road action. The Savage Flux 2350 is completely pre-built with a top-quality HPI radio set, including our TF-3 radio and super-powerful HPI SF-5 steering servo. Just add 8 AA batteries for the radio and two matching battery packs for the truck and you are ready for massive stunt action!
Note: The battery packs required for the truck are two matching 6-cell or 7-cell NiMH packs or two matching 2S 7.4V LiPo batteries plus applicable charger. Batteries must be the same type, voltage and capacity. The minimum rating is 25C and 4000mAh for LiPo packs. For 6 Cell NiMH packs we recommend a minimum of 4000mAh cells and soldered packs only, no welded tabs. LiFe batteries are fine to use, we recommend 4000mAh minimum and 20C discharge.
Everything is assembled and tuned for you by professionals - diffs, shocks, suspension and more are perfect before you even open the kit and with many of the top Savage options already installed, so you don't have to do a thing to get going fast!
