Absolutely amazing monster truck. The HPI savage has been manufactured for about 20 years now and it is still one of the greatest true 1/8th scale monster trucks. It has heavy duty plastic, hardened steel, and aluminum parts that make this truck super strong. This is no race truck it is made for bashing! If you love nitro rc and want to get into a nitro monster truck you should look no further. This is the best bang for your buck and is the most toughest 1/8th scale monster truck you can buy. I used to work on these at a hobby shop and they are very easy to work on and change out maintenance parts. Beats the T-Maxx hands down.
