I is a 2 stroke, see how it looks like? compare that to the already existing engines from hpi, looks very similar doesn't it? I think they just made the design smaller
It said 4 stroke... And I believe that forced induction of any kind won't work on 2-stroke as the intake and exhaust ports open at the same time.

This is a two-stroke. Period. HPI previously said, images show, 2-stroke.

Two-stroke.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I wonder how large the fuel tank will be. Standard Savage size like in their nitros?

By looking at HPI's pricing of there other models, I am sure this truck will be close to $1000 msrp so about $800 on the street is my guess.

As for the size of the fuel tank I am sure it will be the same size as any other savage. Remember gas engines use alot less fuel then nitro engines, With a normal size savage fuel tank expect 30 min run times

NOPE
take a look at the post, look at gas tank in front, realize it's bigger, then research ,then realise HPI said it would have 45 min runtime...

AAwww, I thought it was 4 stoke, doh! Never mind. Thought I could keep a gallon of 91 octane with me and keep filling her up LOL. I don't know why but I just hated mixing 2 stoke fuel back in the day, it just irritated me when my buddies could just fill up there motorcycles with gasoline and I always had to buy the oil to mix it or have to buy pre mixed stuff.

take a look at this, also fits in the d812, d8 and there will be a apache with this engine
same size as a nitro big block, no problem fitting it in any vehicle that can fit big block engines

full:

That was when the expected capacity was 8cc (the block had 8cc stamped on it). Now that they've up-sized it to 15cc - and presuming the 8cc wasn't a deliberate misleading - then previous images might no longer be representative of the final engine size.
