This is an optional HPI Savage High-Performance Suspension Conversion Set, and is intended for use with the HPI Savage family of monster trucks. The Savage Suspension Conversion Set fits all Savage trucks and includes Aluminum Upper Arm Braces, Aluminum Knuckles, Aluminum Knuckle Carriers, Aluminum Rear Spindles Carriers, Adjustable Upper Arm Set, thread lock, screws, wrench and complete installation instructions.

The conversion set lowers the roll center, improves steering response and provides more suspension tuning options for faster lap times on the race track. The machined billet aluminum parts dramatically increase the strength and durability of the truck. All alloy parts are purple for a custom look that matches other HPI factory option parts.

To extract every ounce of driving performance from your Savage, HPI recommends the addition of Nubsz Conversion Set with 17mm UV Joints (HPI87232 or HPI87233) along with the Savage Low CG Racing Chassis Set in addition to this Suspension Conversion Set (HPI87248). This is the ultimate set of modifications to drastically change the Savages' driving characteristics and to transform the Savage to an all out race capable machine, while maintaining the trademark Savage "bashability!"

Features:

  • The Aluminum Knuckles and Aluminum Knuckle Carrier add more caster angle for improved handling characteristics. With the increase in caster, this gives a more responsive driving input while on the throttle and better turn in capabilities. 
  • The Aluminum Rear Spindle Carrier is stronger and adds more durability. Built-in toe angle also eliminates the need for the stock toe linkage rod assembly for a simple and clean rear suspension.
  • The Aluminum Upper Arm Brace adjusts the roll center by changing the location of the inner camber link mounts. This reduces the amount of chassis roll, improving overall on-track performance. While the Adjustable Upper Arm Link Set allows you to the tune the front and rear camber angles for the optimum performance.

NOTE: IMPORTANT! You cannot run this conversion set with four front shocks. Instructions are included for set-up with two front shocks.

Pro: Kit looks good on truck, Allows for minor steering adjustments Con(s): Kit pushed tightly against shock springs, Kit requires major filing of Gear Box/Bulk Head to fit custom parts. (Surprised a HPI designed kit would require filing of plastic parts which weakens them) Kit contains some screws which thread into Aluminum and STRIP. Poor design. Kit does contain bolts/nuts which are good. Steering can only be adjusted so much as aluminum pieces don't allow for full steering extension without rubbing. Overall I was very excited to receive this kit, and after my 3rd weekend driving I removed all parts except for rear components (those held up just fine). Prior to kit I hadn't broke A-arms, however after installing the kit, I have broke 4 A-arms, among some other minor parts due to having aluminum on plastic. Hope this helps someone else save 150.00. Buy wheels with 1/2 offset. Will have same desired outcome.
