One of the greatest joys in RC racing and bashing is knowing that you have THE most “Bad-ass”, “Pimped out” ride there is. This ain’t my HPI Savage X 4.6. I could only wish that this was available at the time I was shopping about. What you’d be looking at in the following pictures could be the most highly-modded Savage X 4.6 you’d ever see. This has got so much after-market parts on this that it makes the Savage X SS look like a toy. It’s a TANK! Best part, it’s mint condition. “Has never seen fuel” as the owner says.

The owner is looking to let go for $900, or to trade for a good electric 1/8 buggy. Find out more by viewing the thread on, at the following link:

While many RC hobbyists and racers alike have been lapping them up, and even more in response to user reviews posted on popular RC forums like RCUniverse and RCTech, several key questions remain, such as, “How do Nitro Superchargers Work?”, “Will Nitro Superchargers Really Make My RC Car Faster or More Powerful?”, “Will Nitro Superchargers Shorten the Life of My Nitro RC Engine?”, “Are There Alternatives To Nitro Superchargers That Can Make My Nitro RC Car Perform Better?”.

Squirrels RC Forum made two videos to explain this. Do have a look!

Here’s Part 1.

And here’s Part 2!
