Power and Stability in the Savage Monster Truck Package

Also in the list of features is an all-metal transmission and gears, big-bore nylon shocks, heavy duty dogbones and outdrives, a relatively low center of gravity, and a TF-40 2.4GHz transmitter.

The Savage XL Flux retails for $729.99 and is currently in pre-order.
