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.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.
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.
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.
