Go Where Buggies and Truggies Fear to Tread!
When normal 4WD can't cut it, when delicate racing parts fail, or when the terrain is simply too terrifying for pure-bred race vehicles, that's when the Big Block 1/8 scale Savage X 4.6 is in its element! Engineered for the most brutal of environments and built for durability in the most extreme terrain, the Savage X 4.6 is the ultimate 'basher' monster truck!
Fat, chunky treads on each wheel grip any type of terrain, whether wet or dry, mud or asphalt. The full-time 4WD drivetrain pulls the truck over and through anything in its path. Four Big Bore coil-over shocks absorb huge drops and help give extra traction on rough surfaces.
With all of this power and durability, the jumping ability of the Savage X 4.6 is unsurpassed by any other monster truck. With a top speed of over 45 MPH, hitting a ramp with something this size must be seen to be believed. Back flips, forward flips, double back flips and more stunts are easy with this much power and control. Landing the truck is easy with Big Bore shocks to absorb the landings and tough suspension parts that take the abuse of jumping with ease.
Combine all of this with the massive horsepower of the Big Block F4.6 engine and you get the roughest, toughest truck around!

Refined 2013 Spec F4.6 Big Block Speed
The 2013 refined massive F4.6 Big Block engine is lighter and lower in overall height for a lower overall CG and is designed for one thing and one thing only - huge amounts of horsepower! Nearly 3hp, in fact! Enough horsepower to get the Savage X 4.6 to speeds over 45mph (73kph)! And Big Block TORQUE is always on tap, just pull the throttle and you'll know you're not driving a small block. You want speed? You want torque? You've got it!
The F4.6 engine has a grey anodized machined aluminum cooling head that keeps the engine cool. Rough off-road terrain and extreme stunts are not a problem with this engine! The F4.6 features true ABC construction (Aluminum piston, Chrome-plated Brass sleeve), 8 port tuning, a 7.5mm composite carburetor, and a heavy duty triple shoe clutch. A dual-stage air filter protects the F4.6 from dust and dirt kicked up by the 4WD action!
The RTR Savage X 4.6 includes a Roto Start 2 starting system along with a Plazma battery pack and charger to get you up and running with minimal effort. To start your engine simply insert the Roto Start into the engine's back plate, press the trigger and away you go.
The Roto Start 2 features an engine save mechanism that protects the
engine. The protection mechanism acts like a fuse. If an overload is
caused by a flooded engine the fuse button will pop out and stop the
Roto Start. After clearing out the flooded engine (as shown in the
instruction manual) you simply push the fuse button back in and start
the engine as normal.
