HPI Savage Octane finally near release?

As pointed out by the boys over at Bigsquid RC (Love your work boys), the HPI Octane, first previewed way back in 2012 looks to be ready for release with Tower Hobbies

Listed at around $800 USD, this petrol powered 8th scale truck is set to revolutionise the basher market by bringing petrol engines down to 8th scale.  it’s taken HPI a couple of years, and we presume a number of teething issues as the design has subtly changed from what we first saw in 2012, but that is how the best things develop, over time! The Savage platform has proven itself time after time after time over the years as one of the best, so it will be interesting to see how well this vehicle does when it comes to sales, and good old fashioned bashing!
