Written by: Derek Buono

HPI is about to turn the electric 1/5 scale world upside down again with their new Savage based Short Course Truck. The Savage drivetrain is super flexible, allowing HPI monster trucks to reach legendary levels of durability and performance! Because of this extreme toughness, HPI designers have Super-sized the Savage to 1/5th scale, taking the Savage to a new dimension!

The Super 5SC Flux takes the powerful Flux Tork 2200KV motor and Blur speedo from the amazing Savage Flux HP for truly impressive top speeds and plenty of wheel-spinning fun! The Super 5SC Flux is lighter than the Baja 5SC, so the power of the Flux Tork is a perfect match!

With specialized parts to fit the Baja 5SC body, bumpers and wheels, from the outside the Super 5SC Flux looks just like its fuel-breathing stablemate. It’s only when you switch it on and drive away that its secret is revealed!

FEATURES:

  • TF-40 2.4GHz
  • SB-5
  • Flux Blur ESC
  • Flux Tork 2200Kv Motor
  • Runs on 6s
  • Bottom chassis skid plates
  • Silicone oil filled shocks
  • 5SC body
  • All metal drivetrain
