I love my Ext tvps I would not order for him tho his prices are high. Make sure you get the center skid plate, because the tranny and brake are closer to the ground and easier for stuff to get jammed in them. Longer tvps make you turn a little wider.

Benefits
1. Lowers the center of gravity. (Helps with roll over)
2. Helps calm down the wheelies.
3. Helps the savy fly better in the air.

Extended also helps in rough terrrain. The truck doesn't get upset as easily as the shorter stock length chassis does.

Totally agree with everyone else, much better for bashing and even future racing, BUT with that said if you like pulling wheelies they will come to a stop. It will be much harder to pull the front end up and it will start taking a tole on the rear diff and or ring and pinion gears.
But it's a night and day difference with regards to handling though, it's a real nice truck to drive after you switch.

Extended is the way to go, generally if you buy them they have everything you need. I wouldnt personally wouldnt buy flm just from the stories I have heard and I dont care for the look of them. I have some from twisted toys but since he bailed on us you can go to http://www.innovative-rc.co.uk/index.ph ... a5592ac649
from what I heard he was having this guy make his stuff anyways so pretty much the same. Just suks its in the uk but heard he ships pretty fast.

I have been looking at the flm tvp's.

Can they be directly swapped for stock tvp's?

I'm also looking into CVDs.

Can I get CVDs that are the same length as the rear dog bones that come with the FLM TVP's?

If you mean extended center CVD's for the Ext. TVP, NO. I tried once and came up S.O.L.

That's a clever idea for a fuel tank mount, are you not worried about flooding the engine? The tank is higher than the carb now.

Definatly go for extended.

Better controll, stops wheelies, flys alot better, LSG, harder to flip, bigger truck, all in all its a better truck.

For brand go with FLM or IRC

My FLM ext lcgs are holding up awesome to everything i through at it. Or run in to for all that matters. Including steel poles at 40MPH :oops:

I can't talk from experience here as I don't own a set of ext. plates but, I was on the fence many times and still am, on a set from flm. I don't race so I am having a hard time justifing spending the money on the tvp/center skid/ rear bone/ fuel tank and top plate to do the job right.
The way I look at it is I am bashing so the money could be spent elswhere. I still might buy them however I just need more conviencing that i NEED them.

Try running a savage with a set and you wont think twice. Im nothing but a basher and wouldnt run nothing but them. Personally a basher can benefit from them probaly more than a racer, were running in rough terrain all the time and launching these trucks and this were the extended help tremendously. Just read all the threads on people who own them already, enough said.

actually i have already driven a savy with ext tvp. and yes it handles smoother and more calm (it is more or less the same difference like the revo 2.5 to the 3.3). but i can't control my sav in the real sense of the word when driving in the pit. its always a bit random what the car is doing as the terrain is different everytime in my bashplace. so therefore i do not give much weight to this arguement of better driveability. i see this as an clear pro argument on the track. when it comes to jumps i think it is easier to do backflips and stuff with a shorter car.
but hey there are always two sides of the story. everybody shall buy whatever they want to. and as human beings we all have the tendency to justify the things we have done or bought because it feels better right...
