I currently have done the brushless conversion to my Savage XL.
I'm running a 1515 1.5d with a MM (bec) and a 2s2p8k Maxamps
16 tooth pinion 52 (stock) spur gear. I have my batteries stacked right were the nitro motor used to sit, with the Neu and esc above them. The truck is real rear end heavy at the moment, but I really like the way it looks. The truck will wheelie on comand at about any speed. Dont forget to tighten your slipper clutch, the brushless motor will make the stock setting slip soon.
I will post my picks as soon as possible, you can also email me for pics too.
For a motor mount I'm using a "early " Kershaw Design that I have made mods to. Kershaw is planning on using some of my mods in his XL kit. I will be having a new motor mount water jetted to my CAD file very soon. I did break a rear hub, popped a tierod end off the front steering knuckle, and took two teeth of the rear pinion gear all in seperate "test runs". I'm in the process of modifing the steering to get rid of the factory slop, and replace the adjustable rear toe with a solid hub setup.
