Description
 
TCS does not manufacture it's own parts in house. Our previous machine shop can no longer make parts for us. We have a new USA shop that is currently being setup and will manufacture parts for us. This won't be until June or July of 2015.

Now you can finally drive your flux on 6S the way you want to, pinned! The TCS Crawlers Flux 5T chassis kit includes everything to convert your HPI Savage Flux to a 1/5 scale truck (minus a servo extension). Two separate mounting locations for stock battery trays (mid chassis and rear) and slots in TVP's allow for battery pack mounting inside the TVP's with straps. The truck shown has Savage XL tires and wheels that are not included. Shown below against a stock Savage Flux for size reference.
HPI Baja 5T bodies will work on this truck (same wheelbase). 5T bodies can be used with the stock Flux body mounts (new holes need to be drilled in the body), but the extra weight of the body does slow down the truck and degrades handling. Baja 5B bodies have not been tested.

Warning, use of this kit may void HPI's warranty; now you can actually use all that power :) Gearing down is recommended with this kit, especially with XL or larger tires (16/47 pinion/spur is a good start). HPI Super H/D Wide Axle (2) #86249 can be used to widen the truck.

Kit includes:
Aluminum chassis plates
Long Driveshaft
Delrin Windshield Brace
Delrin Bulkhead Brace
Chassis Spacers
Hardware

Required:
HPI Savage Flux HP Truck Kit
6" or greater servo extension

Specs:
8.65" longer than stock
Wheelbase: 570mm or 22.4 inches
Stock Flux TVP's 1# 13.3oz, the new long 5mm plates are 2# 1oz.
5mm thick chassis

This is a simple conversion that requires you to replace your tvp's with these, install the chassis separators and braces as shown, and install a servo extension (search WPT-0100 for a servo extension). A set of simple installation instructions can be found in the support section.

Super Strong, Well Made July 13, 2014
Reviewer: Chris Armstrong from Ferndown, Dorset, England  
Love this kit. I had to dremel down the rear a little purely because I wanted to mount two HPI plastic big bore shocks on all 4 corners of the truck, but it only took 30mins to do and even though a reasonable amount of chassis is missing it’s still super strong. That was the only mod I had to do, this kit is awesome and I love having a fifth scale. Thanks!
