Default electric savage

I have been into the hobby for a minute. I have been paying attention to the different types of vehicles. I like the fact that there are 3 versions of the Maxx truck (t, e, sport-2wd). I am rather partial to hpi products. The S-21 is a great truck and
the S-25 is an even better truck, but I was wondering if anyboby knew if hpi was planning to offer an electric version or even a 2wd
version to compete with the maxx trucks.

I think the electric Savage would be a welcomed addition! I have personally held off buying an EMAXX in hopes that an E Savage would be released. I don?ft know how much longer I can wait. I think there is a large niche market for an electric kit monster truck, something HPI should produce. HPI has always been a RC innovator but I think they seem to drag their feet when in come to 4WD off road products. (The electric MT is a great truck and it should have been updated before the super RS4 kit was released.) Ultimately, I think we will see an electric Savage or an updated electric MT kit in the future.

that is possible for the electric MT kit due to the decisions being made by HPI to either restock EVERY warehouse with the current NMT or to redesign it and restock all the warehouses with them. if the NMT is redesigned then the EMT will probably have a revamp soon after

I think an E savage would be a good money maker even though I would never buy one.
