We've taken the ground-breaking GT15C Octane engine, a 2.7hp, 15cc 2-stroke gasoline engine, and strapped it into the award-winning Savage XL long-wheelbase chassis for a one-of-a-kind RC experience! The Savage XL Octane has fistfuls of aggression, a gigantic size, lower fuel costs and extra-long runtimes - what more could you want?
The grunt from the Octane engine lets you throw up dirt roosts and blast through sand, leaves, mud and water with ease! The Savage XL Octane's 3 speed transmission gives you quick acceleration from a standing start with super-efficient shifts for an experience you'll never forget! The 4-shoe Quadra clutch gets the power from the engine to the drivetrain in no time flat, and the all-metal, ball bearing-supported 4WD shaft drivetrain is super-durable to handle whatever you come across. The XtraLarge wide track and XtraLarge wheelbase of the Savage XL chassis work with the XtraLarge Terra Pin tires to make the Savage XL Octane easy to drive and maneuver over and through jumps and obstacles...or whatever is in your way!
The Savage XL Octane is completely pre-built, just like all RTR (Ready To Run) vehicles from HPI Racing. The engine is a pull-start design, and easily starts with a single tug. Rechargeable HPI Plazma battery packs and AA batteries are included to power the hassle-free 2.4GHz radio system and engine control system - all you need to provide is pump gasoline and you are ready to rock!
Innovative 2.7hp, 15cc Octane Gas Engine
The GT15C Octane engine is a giant two-stroke gasoline-powered beast that's bigger than any available nitro truck engine! At nearly 3 times bigger than the engine in the Savage XL 5.9, it's LOUD, BRASH and POWERFUL! The Octane engine is fitted with a tough pullstarter system that gets the engine going with a single easy pull, and uses an electronic management system keeps everything ticking over perfectly. For optimum performance, an aluminum tuned pipe and header are fitted so you get as much power as possible out of the Octane.
The Octane engine is fed by a huge 300cc forward-mounted fuel tank that lets you drive for over 20 minutes per tank. The GT15C is protected by a 2-stage air filter, and a crankshaft-mounted turbo fan and massive aluminum heatsink fins keep it running cool. Finally, the engine is fully enclosed in a resilient roll cage that doubles as a handy carry handle!
