Default Savage Hellfire

Anybody have one of these? Just wondering because if the track I race Unlimited Monster truck at allows Truggies I want to get this one...I think.
If you do own one of these please tell me what you think.

Cool...I love the Savage...From what I read they are calling it a Monster truck but it looks more like a Truggy...

Seems your keyboard is defective, it just spits out garbled bits of feces. You might wanna have that looked at.

I ordered one from Tower with their coupon code thingy. The problem is, the price keeps going up. It's annoying.

Latest news from HPI.....

It seems that during testing (over in the UK at least), a weakness was found in the diffs. Mirage returned the test car and HPI have decided (bearing in mind the cost they will be charging for it) to fix the problem. Good news for us (we get the product we pay for), but release has been put back until end of Feb/beginning of March.

Personally, I am happier about waiting 2 months to receive a top quality product, rather than feel I've been cheated by all the hype. Should be great when it is released.

They have to exchange all the old diff from the trucks that had already been assembled and packaged or shipped......
