Default Drivetrain upgrades

Im looking into getting a Savage for a beater. The most i will do will upgrade the engine and drivetrain. I'm looking to get the RB 928. What are some diff\tranny\cvd upgrades that are a must to make the drivetrain bulletproof? Im new to the Savage scheme, so im not sure on what manufacturers makes what.

here are some options:

HPI savage x ss steel spur
thicker dog bones, do a search for "newera models" and look under HPI moster trucks
allum diffs
and an RPM center skid plate.

i think those should help make your savy stronger.

You could upgrade the transmission shafts to titanium, I have a set but havent yet put them in. You could also get better Dog bones or get CVD's. And get the RR hardened bell/spur set.

Look into the upgraded drivetrain parts that are coming out for the XL They are supposedly beefier then stock.
