If you are getting a regular TC5FT, it comes with a foam setup and all the things you need for foam racing to get you started...

Try the hard suspension parts and the aluminum diffs when you wear out the stock ones.

If you get the TC5F kit it comes with that stuff...

For brushless lipo if you are going to run spec motors, get check out the PPD balast system and get some small spur gears and BIG pinions...sizes in the area of 74-79 spur and 33-36 pinion at 48pitch.

If its really stuck on I put traction compound on it let it soak in for several minutes and it usually breaks it down where you can just wipe it off. Motor spray works also, just let it soak in for a couple minutes

Goo Be gone, but usually I can just scrape it off with my finger nail.

Thanks.
I got the world cvd's and they are great, no slop at all, they cost a little more, but they are well worth it as they really free up the drive train and do not bind under full lock. Larger bearing in the hubs would be nice too though!

so you use both of these together correct? if so do they mesh well? and also, do you still have to add lead weight anywheres?

They mesh together perfectly. The Specialized RC tray has a cutout that seems to be made for weight plates. I haven't added any other weight yet with the lipo mounted in the outermost position.

a spool is a solid front axle and a one way is solid on power and free wheel during braking
