    I suppose one could use the electronics package out of an X MAXX or new E Maxx in a Savage to get that "feature".. Most likely going to be a spendy option as you will need to use the Radio and esc to make it all work right.....
    If you decide to go that route make sure to post some pics of it working....

    Truthfully I have never seen the appeal of a ridiculously overpowered undriveable system in an RC vehicle.....

    Check out this self righting system , NOT for the Savage but I could see it being adapted-

    PS Don't HATE me cause it says "TRAXXAS"

    Think what that system does to your diffs not to mention the ballooning and tearing up of expensive tires when they fly off the rims...
    I would rather just walk over and flip it on its wheels

    I know , the "walk of shame" is part of the fun of it .
    except when its 30' up a Sand Dune , that's a pain
