HPI Savage XS Flux RTR Micro Monster Truck w/2.4GHz Radio
HPI Savage XS Flux RTR Micro Monster Truck w/2.4GHz Radio
Vickie Turner - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Saturday, December 22, 2012
I have had this truck since june and i have had ups and downs with it. The first part i broke was after 10 minutes of driving, i broke a shock rod end. This has been the most consistant problem i have had, and i have went thru the whole shock part kit. Then after this i finnaly got a good run and the dogbone broke. But it was in a bad area were a hill was and the tires was spining and it caught a rock. Then the axles broke and the slipper clutch went out. I have went thru 3 slipper pads but the screw and nut were coming undone and i used locktite, do not use if you need to readjust slipper becsuse it will not come off. So after all of this is started durability testing and it was very durable no plastic broke for two weeks. Then i went on my track and broke a shock end. so after all the frustration i wanted to upgrade but that was put on hold because i needee maitenance parts. I got brand new tires and 2-5 packs later the esc went out. They sent a new one to me but it started jittering and it got really hot and broke. so i called them again to see what the problem is and they said they would send me another one. two days later i called to ask how to fix the shock problem and they told me they would no longer warranty any thing welse including the esc they told me they would refund. so i talked to the manager and he said he would warranty it but they would not do anything else. He said that they had done alot more to help me get up and running. but the first day they said they would not warranty the shock parts. it sounds like they don't want to take responsibility to see the defects in their vehicle and warranty it. the best upgrade would be the esc i would put a mambo monsta in it. that is what i am going to try. if your are willing to upgrade things this will be a great truck compared to the merv but it does not have the rtr value to it. overall i am kinda happy but i have spent hundreds in it. thanks for reading.
