I don't know about trying the rear shock tower on the front, most people don't seem to have the need to.
Yokomo bladder shock caps are a perfect fit for the Cuda shocks if you don't like the ugly black plastic caps with bleed screws.
Some people have been gettting Speedway PAL alloy hubs which are shorter and usualy need drop down mounts for the inner camber links. Then instead of fitting the drop down mounts they machine the bulkheads out at the top to allow the camber links to be mounted from the original top deck holes but from the underside. There are some good pics a few pages back.
You can shim a bit of play out of the small bevel gears to help quieten the car down and put most of your diff shims on one side to make the bevel mesh looser.
KO Racer got an old chassis and cut a small section out of it to act as a bumper brace at the front, it goes on top of the plastic bumper piece and under the nuts holding the bumper on.
Since the upper bumper brace is no longer made by Square, I still wanted to stop the foam bumper flopping around a bit, so I got an alloy battery post and put it on the middle screw at the front of the chassis. Drilled a hole in the foam for the post to go through and it supports the rear of the bumper a bit, you can also use the post to secure your PT if you want to mount it that far forward.
Gaz has probably told you of most of these ideas though.
