Featuring a wide range of improvements, a huge jump in power and several option parts now as standard, the Savage X 4.6 set a new standard for big block monster trucks when it was first released. Now fitted with the brand new HPI TF-20 2.4GHz radio system, the Savage X 4.6 is now even better! The bar has been raised again, once again showing why the Savage is the most popular big block monster truck in the world!
The Savage X 4.6 is the wildest, craziest and most stunt-capable Savage monster truck available, so it's perfect for anyone looking to pull massive air, rock out at the track and show off for your friends! If you're more into massive, impressive size, check out the updated #104248 Savage XL, fitted with a gigantic K5.9 engine and bigger tyres, as well as the HPI 2.4GHz TF-20 radio system. For awesome performance on a par with the Savage X 4.6 but using electric power, look no further than the #104242 Savage Flux HP, now fitted with the TF-20 2.4GHz radio and powered by dual battery packs and a huge brushless motor!
With the HPI Savage monster truck range fully updated to 2.4GHz technology, the only choice you have to make is how crazy you want to get!
2.4GHz Radio System with Failsafe
The Savage X 4.6, Savage XL and Savage Flux HP now include an exclusive brand new HPI 2.4GHz radio system! This means you get to experience DSSS (Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum) technology for no-crystal, no-fuss driving enjoyment. You can just switch on the radio and not have to worry about what channel anyone else is running - just get out and drive!
With failsafe tech, you get additional peace of mind, because you won't have to worry about battery failures or loss of radio contact - the RF-20 receiver has it built right in!
Awesome Option Parts Included As Standard!
Diff with alloy case
Dual disk brake
Included with the Savage X 4.6 are two of our latest option parts: #86827 Alloy Diff Cases and new stronger brake disks!
The Alloy Diff Cases prevent damage to the internal diff gears front and rear, keeping the engine's horsepower where you want it - at the tyres!
Helping all the extra speed slow down are new red fibre brake disks, which are more fade-resistant than ever before and withstand the brutal punishment of the new F4.6 engine!
Savage X 4.6 Durability
'Proven Tough' Over-sized Suspension
Eight long coil-over shocks absorb anything type of rough terrain you throw the truck at, and beefy suspension arms and uprights can take the punishment of big-air drops and top speed runs over bumpy terrain. Keeping everything protected is the cool-looking anodized TVP chassis, which features a custom 'X' graphic. The enclosed radio box has been redesigned on the Savage X models as well, allowing you to add the #308 Battery Level Indicator and charging jack for the receiver battery.
The TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) chassis plates have been modified at both ends in increase the truck's durability. Structural webbing was added to the central gearbox to improve its strength. Extra material was added to the skid plates and bumper struts front and rear to let the Savage X SS 4.6 take on crashes and jumps. The engine mount and engine plate are now thicker to give you more durability and endurance, especially when you're landing massive jumps!
Savage X 4.6 Speed
Get that Savage X 4.6 engine going, and once again anyone watching will be surprised at its speed! With enough power to pull long wheelies with ease, the new F4.6 powerplant is designed for one thing and one thing only - huge amounts of horsepower! Nearly 3hp, in fact! Enough horsepower to get the Savage X 4.6 up to 45mph (73kph)! You want speed? You've got it!
In one word, this new power plant makes the Savage X 4.6 - FAST! The F4.6 engine is a new HPI high-power unit with the proven HPI Nitro Star reliability, featuring 2.9hp from its .28 cubic inch displacement! A great-looking anodized solid aluminium cooling head looks the business and does a great job of keep the engine cool! Rough off-road terrain and extreme stunts are not a problem when this engine is on the case! The F4.6 features true ABC construction (Aluminium piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve), race-tuned 8 port tuning, an 7.5mm composite carburettor, heavy duty triple shoe clutch, plus a convenient Roto Start mechanism for easy starting. A dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and dirt kicked up by the power 4WD action! So fast, in fact, that HPI designers made significant improvements to the chassis, gear cases and other parts of the truck to beef it up so it could handle the extra power! The F4.6 engine pumps out nearly 3 horsepower and sits on an improved engine mount and thicker engine plate to give you more durability and endurance, especially when you're landing massive jumps! Little changes with big effect!
Our designers didn't ignore the drivetrain, either. We wanted to make sure the Savage X 4.6 drivetrain could handle the extra power of the Nitro Star F4.6! The stock Savage drivetrain already features a permanent 4WD system and spins on rubber-sealed ball bearings, plus it features an adjustable 2 speed transmission. To add extra strength to all this, our designers added loads of improvements and extra features. The 17T clutch bell has been modified so it engages the spur gear with extra consistency. A steel spacer is used in the clutch bell, which provides more durability than the brass spacer. The adjustable slipper clutch features a slipper pad made from a more durable material, so there's less maintenance and more driving! Also, aluminium alloy diff cases are now standard on the front and rear differentials, which feature the HPI 4-gear differential. Finally, to make sure you can stop this beast as quickly as you might need to, the Savage X 4.6 is equipped with a new twin vented disk brake made from a space-age heat-resistant fibre material to give you fantastic stopping power!
Go Where Buggies and Truggies Fear To Tread!
When normal 4WD can't cut it, when delicate racing parts fail, or when the terrain is simply too terrifying to race on, that's when the big-block 1/8 scale Savage X series of trucks is in its element! Engineered for the most brutal of environments and built for durability in the most extreme terrain, the Savage X 4.6 is the ultimate 'basher' monster truck!
Fat, chunky treads on each wheel grip any type of terrain, whether wet or dry, mud or tarmac. Full-time 4WD transmission pulls the truck over and through anything in its path. Eight long coil-over shocks absorb huge drops and help give extra traction on rough surfaces. Combine all this with the monster horsepower of the 2.9hp F4.6 engine, and you get the roughest, readiest truck around!
With all this power and durability, the jumping ability of the Savage X 4.6 is totally unsurpassed by any other monster truck. With a top speed of over 70kph (43mph), hitting a ramp with something this size is something that absolutely must be seen to be believed! Backflips, forward flips, double backflips and more stunts are easy with this much power and control! Landing the truck is easy, too: big shocks absorb the landings and tough suspension parts take the abuse of jumping with ease.

Nitro racers have known for a long time that having a working failsafe system is important for those 'just in case' moments - some unforeseen event that could make their car go out of control. With a truck as fast and large as the Savage X 4.6, this is even more important! The failsafe ensures that should your Savage monster truck ever lose radio signal, instead of flying out of control it will come to a safe and controlled stop! There's nothing like peace of mind.
