There are a few companies offering chassis plates for the savage, FLM is one and the other is Innovative RC I did not search thru the entire inventory to see whats available I will leave that fun to you :)

http://www.fastlanemachine.net/ You may have to call fastlane machine about your needs, it is either these or finding a chassis set for the truck on e bay or the like and installing those....

also can look into using a savage x chassis, I am not sure what will be needed for this though... the savage is pretty versatile and part compatible so that's always an option....

Thanks... I was looking at FLM's. From what I've been told the TVP's on the X and XL will fit the old trucks as well (just might need longer dogbones for the XL). But for the cost of FLM I could buy 4 sets to X's of ebay.

I'm wondering if that makes more sense - I'm not sure if they bent because of a crash or because of the larger motor in it causing a lot of torque.

Well stock plates can bend if you do a lot of big air jumps and land no so well, one wheel landings can bend things out of shape in a hurry too. as does cartwheeling it some.... best thing you can do is to make sure all the screws are there and tight before a bash session and try not to land wonky will help a lot....

FLM TVPs are 4.7mm thick. IRC TVPs come in both 2.5mm and 4mm varieties.
