Savage 5T From HPI Racing!

Like nitro? Like 1/5th scale rc cars? Looks like HPI Racing has the solution. The HPI Savage 5T is already available in Japan, so it’s only a matter of time until it makes it state side. Going by the rough translation of Babelfish, I picked up a few things on this new truck. The S5T uses the K 5.9 Engine for power. The drivetrain has been revised and regeared to suit the much larger truck. Instead of 17mm, the hubs are 24mm in typical 5B fashion. However, you can swap back to 17mm for more traditional wheel choices. The wheelbase has been stretched to a whopping 562mm. The best part about this truck is that it is 4WD instead of RWD. The truck weighs in at a mere 15 pounds, which is much less than the 25 pound Baja 5T.
