Savage SS

dont know if you guys seen this -

CRS edit....
One of the biggest requests we have received has been for a kit version of our popular Savage truck. For experienced R/C modelers, the satisfaction of building a kit is a big part of what makes the hobby fun. Assembling a kit from scratch also allows the Savage SS owner to build the kit to their exact specifications and customize the truck by adding any option parts such as our Reverse Module, anodized TVP and roll bar sets and Roto Start System during assembly. Since many drivers already have advanced radio systems that are perfect for the Savage SS, we don't include a radio, which helps lower the price so that we can add high performance hop-up parts and still keep the cost of the truck low. Simply put, kits are fun, convenient and price-conscious!

HPI studies show that modelers who like to build kits are almost always more advanced drivers than RTR customers, so we decided to give the Savage SS more speed. We bolted in a new Nitro Star S-25 engine with 20% more displacement, added a ribbed aluminum tuned pipe, and adjusted the gearing to take advantage of the increased power. The result is a dramatic increase in speed and performance.

Thats a good buy. Cheaper than the "stock" one with a better motor, that'll get more people into this hobby.....less cost to get more.

That is cool. So it does not come with everything you need right? Like no radio or something right?

Extra tuning gears for off-road and on-road performance


Does this mean that HPI has released different spur gear sizes ? Or are they tuning it by way of CB only?
