I had someone at the track tell me that the aluminum top plate is a must have upgrade. What your guy's option on that? What failure is it supposed to fix?

Yeah that is definitely not needed at all. I see of it as more of a being factor than an upgrade.

IF you like to hit thing's on a regular basis, sure it'll help. But " Must have " is Not the case.

Has anyone tried the silver springs up front to get a bit more steering? Right now im using the drake outdoor setup with 5-5-3 for diffs, works really good just could use a tad more overall steering. Its pretty good but could use a bit more on and off power steering. I had 5-7-3 in the diffs and it that gave it a bit more on power steering but made the rear a tad loose for my driving. The 5-5-3 gave it a bit more locked down feel as well as a tad bit more off power steering. I removed the wing spacers last night as well as added a bit more front weight as I had 25 grams and just added some to make 40. Will see how that makes it work at this point. If not I may try the silver front springs to get a bit more overall steering if anyone things that may work? Thanks.

I do not like - but crashes happen sometimes. I prefer to be always sure to finish the race.

Its definitely not a must my stock one lasted 2 seasons, but it is probably the only "upgrade" that would be considered a truly beneficial "upgrade". In my humble opinion.

Somewhere in this thread a guy from Canada wrote that he races in low temps and it's a common thing on their track that guys break this servo arm.

Im Also canada and do Frequently race in sub par temps, If you take that big of Hit the Upper Aluminum saver wont be the Life saver you think it is, All that will happen is the Lower Saver portion will fail instead. Been there and Done that,

Just run thicker front diff oil if it is too aggressive. Only change that I have to make.

What are you running now...
I went from the greens on the front to black (my track can get pretty rough) and ended up going back to green....
If your track is fairly smooth, you may find a bit of improvement.
I ran the blacks up front through 1 pack and swapped back as I lost a lot of feel and poor roll through on fast-ish corners. (i.e. 90 degree right hander at the end of our straight)
Not a lot of difference in rate but a fair difference in handling.
Not a great expense to try out anyway....
