HPI Racing 1/8 Savage XL Octane Monster TruckOur mouths have been watering since we first saw the HPI Racing Savage XL Octane early in 2012 at the German Toy Fair. We’ve been teased on release dates ever since then, but this time it looks like it will indeed be available for public consumption. Tower Hobbies has listed the Octane on their website for pre-order, and Great Planes Distributing has it listed for pre-order for dealers. The part number is #109073, its price is listed at $799 on the Tower Hobbies website, and the rumor this time around is it will start hitting LHS shelves in March
