    Hey guys, I bought a big box of suspension parts, mostly made up of HPI's Suspention conversion stuff but there are a few pieces in here I don't recognize. I'm sure someone knows what they go to... Thanks in advance!

    Look in the manual for screw and sleeve sizes, and then Contact McMaster-Carr and see what they can help with, in a pinch one could make brass sleeves for some things using bushings or tube stock I would think...

    As for all the alloy arms, leave them in the parts drawer, you want some flex in your arms to absorb shock instead of transfer the whole load to the bulkheads if you are gonna be bashing, otherwise they look nice on a shelfer rig that is not gonna be beat on...

    Yeah I'll have to get a hold of them for sure. I've got one sleeve fortunately that I'll be able to take mesurements from.

    The arms do look nice and I'd like to keep them that way. I bought a bunch of old parts from someone and I've got a full set of RPM uppers (not that I've ever broken one of the stocks) and a pair of the adustable arms - any adjustable uppers available aftermarket? I know some of the HPI stuff is hard to get atm.

    Edit: I just ordered the last pair on Amazon. Lol

    Pic 2 looks like the post that hold the battery tray and the other bracket looks like the one the goes by where the gears are. It holds the slid plate in place. If I'm right.

    I think you might be right. Maybe for an upgraded saver?

    if they were for the servo saver you would only have one. i just took apart my savage completely and those two post looks like the ones that hold the battery tray to the truck. if you have your manual look on page 20 and 34. you will see the parts.
