Replace those things while your building and keep em for spares only!

JConcepts finned B4 titanium turnbuckles and Aluminum rear camber block only "Needed" upgrades right away.

Otherwise it's a GREAT car out of the box!

I went with the front hexes because I didn't like the narrow hex of the stock axles. Personal preference!
How do those front JC hexes work? I couldn't figure out how they would slip over the existing axle hex but not be bigger than 12mm or increase width?

And just like that, i am getting my order together.

So far i have these items in addition to the kit.

Bearings - full and gearbox

TurnBs

And this guy. teamassociated 91520

Wildcat1971, is the above part what you were referring to as well?

After that, I have a a little more room in the budget. Is there anything else i should get in there now during the build vs upgrading later?

Thanks so much for everyone's help! This is going to happen!

Yes that is the part. The kit bearings dont need to be replaced, granted they are not the best in the world. But i used mine for a couple months. Non failed and only the front wheel bearings got gritty. But your list looks pretty good. A chassis protector is optional also. some use it, some dont. they do keep the chassis from getting wrecked...if you care. Ugly chassis need love too lol

I would get some wheels and tires for your track, maybe some wings too.

+1 on spare wings. I would get the trifecta wings. they are nice and thick, but may require mount modifications
