Default HPI Vorza Flux HP vs Savage Flux HP

Hi Guys,

Before everyone jumps at saying that it's not something that can be compared, I would like people who either own, have owned, are experts on the matter or know people that own both the HPI Vorza Flux HP and Savage Flux HP to suggest which one to get.

The thing is that you can already see what I own in my signature but am really in the market for a new Basher.

What I don't want is something that needs serious changes made right out of the box. I have heard form multiple people that the Slipper Clutch is an issue with the Savage Flux HP (also other breakages and mods that need to be made right away).

The only negative I've heard about the Vorza is the ground clearance, which doesn't really seem to be an issue, given the way I've seen people Bash it.

Plus I don't own a Buggy and do own an MT4 G3. Just growing the arsenal and know that this is the best place to ask the best people.

So please - Help!


Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 | HPI Savage X 4.6 SE | Losi Mini 8ight | Hotbodies D8T Brushless Conversion | Losi Ten SCTE MAMBA MAX PRO SCT 2400KV
HPI Savage XS | Mugen MBX7 Eco | Futaba 4PX :)

The vorza is basically a electric hb d8 with a few other changes. Knowing this i would choose it over the savage any day.

If ground clearance is not going to be an issue for you, then I would go Vorza. Tougher out of the box and easier to maintain I would guess from owning a related buggy. I don't have a Vorza but I do have an Apache C1 which is essentially an extended chassis Vorza with a cage. It has been more reliable for me than my built Savage Flux HP. I have modded the buggy, but most of the mods were just nice to have.
