After many failed attempts to get a running 1/5 truck this is the best thing so far. I took my brand new Savage Flux and installed a TCS 5T conversion kit.

You can get this same kit at: www.tcscrawlers.com for $159.99

This is pretty much how the kit looks like when I pulled it out of the box.HPI Savage Flux HP TCS Flux 5T conversion ki

To give you an idea the size of the Savage 5T I have lined up a few cars. Starting from my left is an 1/5 scale HPI Baja 5T, 1/5 HPI Savage Flux TCS 5T, 1/8 Losi Brushless LST XXL, 1/10 E-REVO, and 1/16 Erevo.

As you can see the Savage is now a lot longer than the LST.HPI Savage Flux HP TCS Flux 5T conversion ki

 

The Savage is not as big as the Baja 5T but it is very close. I think the Baja 5T may be a bit wider only because I installed Dark Soul wheels extenders on it.HPI Savage Flux HP TCS Flux 5T conversion ki

This is just a mock version of the Proline Desert Rat 5T body I planning to mount on the Savage. I just placed the body on top of the truck to get an idea how it would look.
