    Best way to convert my X to XL w/ mid tank

    Iwant to convert one of my Savage X's to an XL with mid tank mod. I'd prefer a happy balance of low cost to ease of conversion (especialy the midtank). However, I'll take the ease of the conversion over the savings of a few bucks. I've read a lot of how to's on the midtank mod but a lot of guys fab parts to save money. I'm not the greatest at fabing so I'd prefer some sort of bolt in installation with minimal fab work.

    RE: Best way to convert my X to XL w/ mid tank

    Check out the FLM conversion. That's the route I took, buy, bolt up and done. It will run you some $ but will look good. You can pm me an I can send you pics. All together it will run just over a $100 for everything. Chassis(ext. lcg), servo plate, tank, mounts, and radio box.
    If it\'\'s not broken, then you\'\'re not bashin hard enough.

    If you google fast lane machine, you should be able to find it. They don't sell direct from there website, but you can find others that do sell their products through google. I'm unable to post links from my phone browser, but like I stated, google fast lane machine savage chassis or flm savage chassis you should find what your looking for. Shop it around, the chassis will be about the same everywhere, but the servo plate and mounts will varie from store to store and FLM's website will give you a good baseline to go from on pricing.

    I used the flm extended lcg chassis, flm servo plate, flm servo mounts, flm motor plate, Ofna 250cc fuel tank, and fuel tank mounts. The radio box I used was the hpi blitz radio box. PM and I can shoot you some pics of the set up.
