Either this:

Or search on ebay, there is a guy that makes adapters for the Savage, I think he is also on this forum.

Or use standard FG squares like I did, you can get them in width from 9.5mm to 17mm for different offsets:

You need to grind flat spots on your XL axles with a dremel to use them:

You're welcome. Forgot something to add: Use the softest compound for the GRP tires.
