HPI Savage XL Octane 1/8 4WD Gas Monster Truck w/2.4GHz Radio & 15cc Gasoline Engine
I have had this truck for a little while now. I have put about 12 tanks through it. Yes when you first get it you will have to be patient with it and i recommend just changing the spark plug after the first tank. It seems the spark plugs likes to foul out after the first tank or so. It will take 5 tanks or more before it starts to shift properly, like i said be patient with it and it will be worth it. I love this truck and it is my favorite in my collection...

Bought this truck after being out of the hobby for a long time. I was initially impressed with it, starts easy, tuning is simple and it just looks awesome overall. But after running about 15 tanks though it the exhaust manifold started spewing oil down the side of the engine. Having fixed that now my CDI is dead and I'm still waiting on the warranty repair/replacement. Overall I think this is a very fun truck but for the price parts should not be failing within 2 weeks, HPI defiantly still has a few bugs to work out with this one.
