LCG TVP and shock mod. thats the only way to improve the handling. i dont think it is worth it, just buy a truggy kit, costs roughly the same by the time ur done upgrading your savage

Id rather race a Savage and good then race a CRT and be good. Crimefighters are better for clay than Bowties. Get the CF TVP chassis, Rock Concepts towers, By-pass shocks, and anything else to lower the CG and save weight.

Make it a single shock set-up also, its will save weight and be a little more nimble.

Race in the production monster truck class, you dont have a chance against truggy's.

I was lookiung in one of my magizines where a profesional savage driver got a chassis fromHPI that lowered everything 12mm, rock concepts front and rear shock towers, and 4 Mugen buggy shocks, which give less weight and more spring optins. Also look for a better sterring servo. Pick your tires but go with either regular size or 40 series 23 mm wheels from proline.

This is one way to go if you really want to get the best from you savage without adding a center diff. It lowers the truck 1/2 inch and stretches it 1 inch, it has hole to move the servo back to the engine and the fuel tank to front. Run four buggy shocks on after market towers that are designed for shorter stronger and lighter shocks and your set. You still wont hang with a truggy with out a center diff. My Savage laps are 38.8 average and my CRT truggy laps are 37.55 average. With out a center diff mod, I will never be able to catch a truggy.

might wanna try the Mid-Tank mod, FLM Shock towers and A-Arms let you mount any shock humanly possible on the Savage including Losi LST shocks.

It's tough enough getting a Savage to compete with a Revo let alone any truggy.


To start off with, I say buy lots of lottey tickets. Then do about 10 "Our fathers", 5 "hail marys" and pray you actually hit the lottery so you can afford this project you are about to undertake. I imagine it can be done but I bet til it's finished you will have been able to buy 4 or 5 truggys. Good luck my man!

Yeah!!! listen to the guy that you can't understand because he types in one run-on sentence and doesn't know what punctuation is or how it works!

nOOb? LOL

Junior,
First of all, don't take yourself so seriously. Secondly learn how to take a joke and lastly, I was running RC cars while you were still a twinkle in your Daddy's eye (at least I assume so based on your 5th or 6th grade command of the English language... I could be wrong but I hope for your sake, I'm not.)

... and I meant 4 or 5 RTR truggies at about $400-500=$1600-$2000... genious. LOL
