how to make my savage x wider ?
 
hi im new the site i have been messing with rc stuff for about 5 years now snd i own two savages a 25 and an x i like the savage x alot but it tends to flip over real easy i was just wondering if there is a kit to make it wider ? i have also heard of people using a arms off of the savage xl and i am assuming the driveshafts ,if thats possible, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

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?

all you need is one set of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-HPI-Sa...#ht_785wt_1031and you shoul be fine as long as you have the thicker shafts check in your manual to check the part no to make sure

Did you get the longer rear driveshaft to go with the XL TVP's?

yea it came with the longer driveshaft , if im not changing motor i shoulnt need the beefier diff cups right ? i mean eventually i will change the motor and when i do ill get them.

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

can u guys give me the part number for the diff cups, i want to make sure i get the right thing. the ones that go from the differential to the axles, not center axles

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.
