SXT 3.0 works well for ozite. Clean them real well with WD-40 between rounds and they will be nice and soft. Put some WD-40 on a paper towel and ziplock bag the tires overnight: This works for long term storage too.

Going to rebuild this thing again. Mid motor this time for indoor carpet again. Should be fun! I just can't justify upgrading to the 2.0.

I would most defeniatly get get the front end parts, caster block, spindles, steering rack and front arms (addtiional clearance for rack and spindle steering changes).

The rear arms and hubs for typicaly MM setups should not have any affect on you. If you are running carpet you may not want the updated drive shafts either.

Again I would do the front end parts though.
