THE FIRST ELECTRIC POWERED SAVAGE MONSTER TRUCK!
Electric power is the easy way to get into off-road monster trucks. Charge up, switch on, and enjoy the ride. The E-Savage captures that ease and adds the proven durability and extreme off-road capabilities of the famous line of Savage trucks. You need a tough and powerful truck to handle electric off-roading, and the E-Savage delivers.
TWIN VERTICAL PLATE CHASSIS
The Twin Vertical Plates (TVP) chassis design was inspired by the time-tested durability of our Savage line. Twin Vertical Plates serve as the stable core of the chassis design, providing the critical strength needed to stand up the abuse of hard off-road driving. The rigid aluminum TVP chassis has a stylish design that places the front, rear and center gear boxes between two upright aluminum plates. With the V-shaped battery layout (VBL) we have placed the batteries (the heaviest items on the truck) at the lowest possible position to make the center of gravity very low for quick and precise handling.
SYMMETRICAL 4WD LAYOUT
The E-Savage has a symmetrical power train layout with twin motors located around the center and twin batteries on the left and right sides of the chassis. This layout creates excellent chassis balance to contribute to great drivability on rough terrain and stability in high-speed driving. Full-time 4WD puts the power to the ground at all four corners, with 8 oil-filled shocks to soak up the bumps. The result is a real go-anywhere monster truck.
TWIN MOTORS & TWIN BATTERIES
Two high-power 550-size motors come pre-installed, giving the E-Savage the power you need for off-road action and wheelies on command. Each motor has a cooling fan inside so they run cool and generate high power. Two 3300 mAh 7.2V rechargeable Ni-MH battery packs are included for 14.4 volts of electric off-road power. And, the included GT Escape charger allows both batteries to be recharged at the same time.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL!
The E-Savage comes equipped with an easy-to-use electronic speed control to handle the twin motors and twin batteries. The GT Speed Control delivers fully proportional throttle control and has built-in reverse to power you out of sticky situations. The FASF (Fully Automatic Setup Function) automatically sets up the speed control, no adjustments necessary, just plug in and drive. A large purple anodized alloy heat sink and electronic overload prevention circuitry automatically protects the ESC from overheating.
TWIN PLATE SLIPPER CLUTCH
A high capacity twin plate slipper clutch is attached to the spur gear to protect the drive system from impact while jumping. Placing the spur gear between two slipper disks helps the drive train handle the power of the twin motors and can be adjusted to track conditions.
COMPLETE SET OF BALL BEARINGS
Twenty two precision manufactured ball bearings are used in the drive train to reduce maintenance and efficiently transmit the power of twin motors and twin batteries to the tires.
WHEELS AND TIRES
Big 5.4 inch diameter tires easily climb over fist-sized rocks. The block pattern of the tread ensures long life and stable grip on dirt and paved surfaces. The tires are wrapped around high gloss chrome wheels, pre-glued with inner foams pre-installed. The wheels and tires are compatible with a huge variety already available on the market for the Savage, so customizing your E-Savage is easy.
