New Savage XL Octane equipped for gas-powered greatness!

There are a lot of good reasons for going with gas power: lower fuel costs, longer run times, no hassle operation and more. HPI Racing has just given modelers another one: the gas-powered Savage XL Octane Monster Truck. It’s the first 1/8 scale gas-powered monster truck ever and just the thing to give monster truckers a whole new reason to get out and get dirty. It was designed around the 15 cc Octane gas engine — a 2.7 hp purveyor of power — and it’s accompanied by a tuned pipe that boosts takeoff torque, plus a new “ducted fan” cooling system for keeping the Octane running at peak power. Everything else about the Octane is designed to handle the intimidating power those items deliver, or to make it just that much easier to enjoy.
