RPM A-arms for Savage and Savage X

- RPM RC Products - By: - Comments Off

RPM A-arms for Savage installed on HPI Savage

For all everyone looking to shed some unwanted, unsprung weight, RPM has you covered! RPM Savage X A-arms weigh in at less than the stock Savage A-arms due to our low profile designs. The low profile combined with the beveled leading and trailing edges of the RPM Savage X A-arms prevents them from hanging as low as the stock versions and allows the RPM Savage X A-arms to ride up and over obstacles versus slamming into them.

RPM Savage and Savage-X A-arms have been engineered to strict tolerances, eliminating most of the slop typically found in the stock versions, also eliminating the need for shim kits to tighten up the suspension. Furthermore, our A-arms are still silky smooth throughout the entire range of suspension travel and the new RPM Savage X A-arms allow all those critical settings to stay locked in place.

HPI Savage X reverse module

HPI Savage X - Reverse module

HPI has released a reverse module with mixer for the Savage X. The Savage X reverse module set comes with a reverse module that plugs directly into the Savage X transmission, a linkage set and a specially designed mixer. The mixer is an electronic device that plugs into your standard 2 channel receiver. To engage reverse, just hold the throttle in the full brake position for 3 seconds. While in the reverse mode you have complete linear throttle control and the transmission will even shift gears while in reverse. To switch back to forward, just hold full brake for 3 seconds. This system is safer than a 3 channel set-up because it prevents drivetrain damage by not allowing reverse to engage while moving forward.

The Reverse Module with Mixer fits the Savage X and can also be used on any Savage truck using a 2 channel receiver. A complete installation manual is included. A standard servo is required for the conversion (not included).

Part #: 87039
MSRP: $88.00

Novak HV 6.5 Brushless Motor

- Team Novak - By: - 0 comments

Novak HV Brushless Motor

Based on the industry-standard HV4400 brushless motor, the new Novak HV 6.5 (High Voltage) Brushless Motor (#3426) features two major performance upgrades. The most significant upgrade is the newly-engineered nickel-plated rotor, which is the core of the brushless motor. This new rotor improves motor acceleration, speed and brakes, is more durable, and is more resilient to heat. The second upgrade is the lightweight, aluminum ribbed end bells, which provide additional cooling by acting as a heat sink, efficiently removing excessive heat from the motor. The HV6.5 High-Voltage Brushless Motor is available individually (#3426), as well as in the popular HV High-Voltage Brushless System 6.5 (#3020).
