    I've been torn between the Savage XS and the mini Summit. I really want the Savage but my local hobby store is pushing me toward the Traxxas because he says he can't get HPI parts.

    Is this true? Are HPI parts hard to come by?

    Sorry in advance, I'm a newb and rely on my local hobby store for all parts and repairs.

    Yes HPI parts have been hard to come by for awhile now, but don't despair they do say parts flow will be improving soon since I last e mailed them on this about 2 weeks ago.....

    Contact info for USA Buyers, e mail or call for when parts may be available for certain models...

    To ask a question in the US, please contact support by email support@hpiracing.com or call our service center on (217) 398-0007.

    Every time I break something on my Savage I have not had a problem getting replacement parts. Ebay, Amazon, internet hobby stores and I'm the original owner of my Savage .21. Only upgrades are black coil springs, Big Joe's and other wheels and tires, dial brake pads, steel gears and a Picco .27!!! HAHAHA

    Just got this response from HPI USA... seems the owners of RIPMAX do own HPI, but RIPMAX does not...
    So with that the rep did say

    Good Morning,

    Whilst the owners of Ripmax now own HPI, Ripmax as a company do not. Therefore they will not be able to assist.

    We are getting deliveries every month so you will see a drastic improvement soon.

    Kind Regards

    For the XS, I haven't had too much trouble getting parts. The worst was the slipper clutch for awhile, but those seem to be readily available these days.
