HPI Savage Octane
Hang on rc world, here comes gas.

If you have been by our BigSquidRC Facebook Group lately, then you will have seen that the HPI Savage Octane has shipped and is started to hit consumer hands. One of the members of our group, David F., has already posted a few pictures of his HPI Octane, so we thought why not show off a few more!

We continue to hear reports of them hitting local hobby shops and popping up on eBay. While most (all?) of the trucks on the first shipment have been spoken for, there are bound to be a few that will slip through the cracks. If you want to be one of the first people to check out the gas powered Savage Octane, now is the time to land one.

The HPI Savage Octane has a part number of #109073 and are street priced at $869. We see them being listed as high as $1200 on eBay, so good luck finding one at close to street price.

If you can’t get your hands on one.. at least you can enjoy the pictures above. While you are at it, let us know in the comments if you plan on being part of the GAS revolution or not. We’d like to know what you guys think!

The full BigSquidRC review of Savage Octane goes up next week, until then hit up This Link to check some of our other recent reviews.

We’ve received news that the LCG Traxxas Slash 4×4 Platinum Edition #6804R is now shipping and you should be seeing them in your local hobby shops any day now. This is the newer version of the Platinum 4×4 Slash that comes with the LCG chassis and new GTR big bore aluminum shocks, a version that a lot of people have been waiting for. The waiting is nearly over, but until yours comes in hit up the Traxxas Website for more information on all of their products.

Traxxas is in the news all the time HERE on BigSquidRC, check it out.

A few months ago we showed you Team Durango‘s new 1/10 scale, 4wd, electric buggy, the DEX410R.  Durango sent word today that their mid-level racer is now shipping.  The DEX410R is based on the championship winning DEX410, with a few changed specs to make it less expensive.  It is parts compatible with the higher-end spec so you can upgrade as money permits.

It’s listed at $350.00 and shipping now on the Team Durango web site.  Your local hobby shop should be receiving it in the next few days.
