    I am wanting to know if HPI has discontinued the Savage XL nitro truck. If so, does anybody know any companies that might still have some available? Thanks.

    I don't see them available anywhere either. Before their acquisition, they were readying a V2 Savage XL. Haven't seen updates on that though.

    Search results for the XL 2.0 bring up nada on HPI's web site, it's like it never existed. Bummer too, I had that truck on my wish list. Seams HPI as of lately is the dream crusher company. It's a damn shame & will hurt them (business wise).

    They still make the xl , it might be called something different for 2017 , but it has the Radio box where the fuel tank is in the fuel tanks where the radio box was , and the TVP plates are from the octane . It's not out yet and has a f5.9 not the k5.9 , looks great

    It is discontinued for now. New release next year. I saw a few Xl nitros on Ebay.

    Thanks everyone.. I'm glad to see they are going to come out with the new version next year. Definitely hope the 5.9 is a better version than they had in the first one.
