Default Hop ups for the rc10t3

I just got my new t3 last week and was wondering if anyone knew of some hop-ups that i could put on it. I would like to put a d5 6 turn in it but cant scrounge up enough money to do so. so until i do find some cash I would like to know what I can buy that would make my t3 rip for the minimum amount of money.

Default Just about the biggest list of hop-ups I could dream of.

I'd say the T3 and the Triple-XT (which I own) are roughly the same overall, so here's what I am deciding to get as far as hop-ups. Titanium turnbuckles. They increase the strength, look good, and are lighter and stronger than stock one's. I wouldn't think you should be getting a 6-turn already. It's just a little on the useless side. I would love to have that speed, but it will wind out so slowly it wouldn't be funny, even if you geared it correctly. If you want looks and durability, forget the motor and work on the chassis. Get some titanium (if possible {any metal should be fine}) a-arms. Some titanium machine screws for the bottom would also be fashionable. Also, if you dial your truck in like you want it, read the owner's manual and see (according to your shock location on the shock tower) what softness/stiffness of spring you will need. That'll make your truck ride like a fairy cloud. Last but not least, I am thinking of getting some better, stronger, and lighter shock towers, along with new tires, a new body and paintjob, some different gearing (start with 17-tooth pinion and go up to find a suitable match), AND THEN A BIGGER MOTOR!
