The Savge was designed so that you can mount any 1/10 scale body.

surely the savage should be classed as a 1/10 scale then?!

I am going to HAVE to buy this body for my savage, because i actually own a school bus in real life. I know this is more of a painting question, but do you guys think there is anyway i could make the windows so it was like looking into a real bus, like using stickers or something?

I have the Skool Bus on a T-Maxx, and have also mounted it on a Savage, but the wheel wells don't line up with the wheels on either one.It doesn't bother me because it always gets laughs and the front of that body is TOUGH!

i have a skool bud body for my savage and i love it the only thing i had to do was dremel holes for the body antenna, pull start, glow plug ignitor, and i cut a widow out for air flow... I had to make the wheel wells a bit bigger because the end of the wheels wells got caught up on the springs but its worth it..

Not really. HPI saw that there where a lot more 1/10th scale bodies out there, thanks to the T-Maxx. So they designed the Savage to take advantage of some of the aftermarket support that was already available. But let me ask you. If you put a Savage next to a T-maxx who will be bigger?
