    You could put sway bars for better handling not sure about the flipping though.

    hi you could use xl axle shafts as they are longer and but you also need to change the dogbones and the dive shafts as the dog bones are thicker. But if its a newer x it should already have the beefier shafts so will only need the axle shafts

    Iwas under the impression that all Savages ride on the same suspension arms; except for the "E-Savage." In any case, shouldn't 2 sets of these do the job?

    RE: how to make my savage x wider ?

    To properly convert to the XL you need the following items

    XL TVPs
    XL rear center dogbone
    XL/Flux Diff cups
    XL Ext drive cups (the ones pictured above with the purple spacers)
    XL/Flux axles
    XL motor plate (not necessary tho)

    Thats everything needed to convert to XL. If you upgrade to the ext drive cups you WILL need the diff cups and axles. There is no way around this, the X axles will bind and fall out
    ERCM Picco/ Endbleed power should be the only combo allowed in a Savage.

    Just buy some Flux / XL BP diff bulks off ebay, or look at the XL manual and use them.
    Best bet is to get flux or newer XL bulks with BP diffs, 29/9 and not the 43/13.
    They will come with the larger diff cups either way.

    That's a good point; I didin't think about the cups since I installedBP diffs anyhow. If you use the 29/9 gearset then everything will match up and you should never have diff issues.
