What are other good options? I know about Tresrey, but they are a little on the pricier side.

Just my 2 cents here's what i did to make my car bulletproof

Exotek rear carbon tower
A.E. ballstuds rpm caps
gear diff 2k fluid works great for high bite clay
added front and rear aluminum skid plates on 8+ chassis
tresrey rear hubs
tresery rear carbon camber link
aluminum steering plate


buggy always finished races with these upgrades..

Where is everyone getting their "gold" hardware? Like the nuts and countersunk washer? I have been looking but haven't seem to find the right ones. Is there a place to buy these in bulk? I do have 3 cars...
