I don't know of such a kit. There are basic tools that came with each truck. You best bet is to open the manual for your savage and go through the list of needed tools and order what you need.

Having a good set of tools will save fasteners and make working on your rig much easier, a good quality #2 phillips and a good set of hex drivers are invaluable over the L wrenches that come with the rig when ya buy it new.....

A Main, Dynamite and others offer sets of hex drivers that are not too expensive and work well....

Look in your manual and see what tools are required. Some makers use metric, some standard and yet others mix them up (like Losi) There should be a list in the beginning of your manual describing all sizes needed. Get a GOOD set with fat handles, or a set that has interchangeable bits is usually available also. Check Tower hobby.

There isn't a specific "tool kit" I'd recommend but I actually did a post on this very subject on another forum of ours. If you're getting started into RC here is a list of handy tools to have in your toolbox.
This isn't a complete tool for every single job but is a collection of tools that you'll certainly use and most of them you'll use quite a lot.

One of the neatest, cheapest tools in my box.....http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apex-RC-Products-Curved-Ball-Link-Pliers-2725-/221275916200?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item33851287a8 The first time I tried these was when building a kit and needed to install a lot of ball links. It will also remove them, hold shafts without damaging them, and is just generally an all around great tool you can find many uses for. Check it out.:)
Thanks Greg I appreciate ur reply and I orEdered a set today they look like they are very useful!! Thanks again

Those are good tool sets. Flog me dead but I have a set of Integy hex and nut drivers that have held up well. I also have a duratrax multi tool that has two sided bits in the handle that rides around in my pocket at bash sites for quick wrenching.
