Im not sure what your kit would be.

Your best bet would be to measure the distance between the holes,
upper hole on left to upper hole on right,
outer hole on left to outer hole on right,

and send a pic of those towers and the measurements to IRC via email.

I have ordered the IRC kit on Nov 14th.  I have not received it and I am looking for alternatives.  I don't like the flm kit because I want to keep the stock towers and I don't see how flm addresses the installation on the a arm.  I have run across the new era kit but they appear to be out of stock. I wouldn't mind building my own way of installing them but I would need a detailed parts list.  Kiz has a nice picture on this thread but I can't figure out what parts to get and how to install on the a arm. The best scenario would be for irc to respond to an email and or ship their product.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Will zero offset rims be fine with LST shocks? Would love to put the HPI Blast rims with LST shocks on my truck.

I dont have any 0 offset rims to try, but looking at my setup I dont see there being a problem.

Shipping was outstanding. Took only 7 days from the UK to the East Coast..US.
A few extra screws/bolts etc...
Instructions were just ok...could of been better. But not to hard to figure out how everything goes.
For the money, a very solid product!
Also the shocks came from a local seller, not from Innovative-RC..but I do think they sell them as well.

does this conversion remain the stock ride height if I do them on my savage xl? I don't wanna lose height as it looks good sitting kinda high.

I am fitting mine to my flux but without the IRC kit.I am going to use IRC stand offs top and bottom and going to use a buggy turnbuckle for shock tower support as shown on page 3 of this thread :D .

Quick question to confirm how to classify my SAV - You mention 'X' owners covering the flux as well as non 'X' 4.6  option, or Sav X with 21 or 25 arms

I have an XSS 4.6 kit version ... Does anyone know what category this truck fits into?

I think I'm going with the lst2 version (and Ti shafts) currently going relatively cheap on eBay. Also do you think these suckers are worth the trouble/cost over the Standard twin Sav option? And how do they compare with the HPI big bore option-are they superior?

Currently rebuilding my XSS with a yet to be run in LRP.30, JP4 pipe, DX4S, savox super high torque metal servos, BP 3 speed tranny upgrade.

Thanks fellas

Hey guys,

I've decided I want to do the upgrade but not sure which category my Savage XSS kit falls under.

Is it 'X' or non 'X', just trying to work out what tower bits I need to get from innovative RC.

I was going to go with LST2 shocks, ravenrc springs and Ti shafts.

Thanks

X and lst2 with rc raven springs are a good choice. The ti shafts are just coated for friction resistance. They are not ti shafts. Still good but didnt want you to have the wrong idea.
