HPI have introduced the new Savage XL FLUX 1/8 Ready to Run Electric Monster Truck. The Savage XL FLUX combines the raw power of 6S LiPo brushless power with the stability of a long wheelbase in the Savage HPI monster truck package. After over a decade of thrilling serious RC bashing performance, the HPI Savage has earned a reputation for being the toughest monster truck you can find. A pair of XL-Long 2.5mm thick aluminum Twin Vertical Plates (TVP) provide the backbone of the Savage, and a thick 7075 aluminum motor plate holds the super-powerful FLUX 2200Kv motor in place. The XL-Wide Savage suspension is ultra-tough, with super-thick webbed suspension arms and uprights built to handle gigantic jumps, rough landings, rolls and full-speed crashes.
Coming from XRAY and specially-designed for the XT2 Stadium Truck are the wheels Aerodisk with 12mm internal hex. The wheels are made from flexible material while still being durable against impacts. The side of the wheel is aerodynamic for maximum performance. Special features of the wheel are visible from the inside: reinforcement ribs to make the wheels as stable as possible and eliminate deformation.

Pepe Group have announced the continuation of their long lasting relationship with Italian front runner Fabrizio Teghesi. Fabrizio has been precious for MLC throughout the years both for his remarkable results that brought MLC to an Italian title and for his constant work in the R&D and customer care fields. The Kyosho/OS driver will continue to use the whole range of MLC products throughout the 2017 season.
Sadly the organisers behind the celebrated Camel Classic in Kuwait, have been forced to cancel the event due to low international interest. Despite reassurances from within the FEMCA bloc of attendance, actual confirmations proved difficult. We wish the team the best in the future and hope the event returns soon.
Past weekend was held the Jump Buggy Jump in Nicosia, Cyprus. Many drivers from Turkey also attended this race with among them XRAY Turkey’s factory team driver Alain Sarafyan who provided support to all XRAY drivers. In 4wd Niyazi Deniz took the win in front of Ahmet Akber in second and Umut Türkay in third while in 2wd it was Murat Yazıcı who won the race from Alain Sarafyan and Umut Öztümen, second and third respectively.
