XS = xstra small, so you cant compare it with the 1:8 version.

Basic design is prob a bit simulare only with more use of plastic

I believe it's a 1/12 scale and is only a savage in name and it's basic design,sure as hell looks cool though and i hope it'll beat the snot out of a MERV!

i hardly ever buy new rc cars and almost always buy used, but i'm thinking i'm going to have to buy this as soon as it comes out. my savage flux has been my favorite rc for a long time and it could use a little brother.

i'm hoping it's not going to cost much more than $300


They say a good mechanic only needs 2 tools - WD40 & Duct tape. If it moves, and its not supposed to, duct tape. If it doesn't move, and its supposed to, WD40.

The electronics look like the new sidewinder SV2 which is waterproof, so that thing will haul!

Havent seen the esc before, but the motor is clearly a castle creations product so i assume the esc is too..

1:10 scale motor and metal drivetrain, just hope there will be alu chassie plates available, but one thing is sure this thing is gonna obliterate the traxxas 1\16

Yeah, that's clear as mud....where did you get your info from (in regards to the motor)?

Looks like plastic chassis plates - judging by the "potted" fastener holes shown in one of the pics.

I'm curious of over all diamentions and weight, Need pics to show scale.

My 4x4 Stampy may never get built, rather have one of these if it's not to small ?


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

seems like the left battery box is just an protective cover for the motore ore for aesthetic reasons. It may also feature d8\vorza bevel gears(not sure)

I don't think we need to worry about that, just look at how many options there are available for all the 1/8th savages...

Anyone got news about the XS? Releasedate maybe? Definitive data on what electronics are going to be in there? Especially what motor?

More news from the little Savage arrived!
360mm total length
280mm width
225mm wheelbase

Not so Xtra Small after all, only a few centimeters shorter and less wide than a 2WD Stampede.
Anyone recognises the "powered by castle" ESC?

edit: Listed for $310US on tower, no release date though
