Default Alloy TT01 parts

Just wanted to get some experianced opinions on what people suggest I should upgrade to alloy on my TT01, and in what order.

There are full alloy kits on ebay for about $300AUD, but I'd rather just get bits and pieces over time.

The cars a bone standard TT01 with a Silver can and 26mm rims.

The cars main duty will be indoor drifting with a bit of all out racing thrown in. I don't take the elecs too seriously so I want to rice this one up a bit.

Both really. I guess I want to firgure out which parts I should order first to get the best improvment. Then keep buying them down a 'prioirty list' until I've riced it all out.

Alloy knuckes seem to be popular.

And yeah, the blue looks great. This is the ebay kit thing for $300.

Default TT-01 Alloy Parts

All the blue stuff does make it look pretty but from practical experience I would recommend the following parts (in order):
1) Drive shaft.

2) Lower suspension arms.

You lose adjustability if you install the fixed upper arms. The front plastic one's have to be replaced fairly often but it's worth it to be able to set camber.

3) Knuckles

4) Steering assembly

5) Front and Rear diff covers.

The TT-01's are really weak where the shock tower joins the diff cover and you wind up having to replace them fairly often. The upper A-arms will connect to the new diff cover but you should also get the aluminum part the the other side of the A-arm connects to also.

The rest is basically bling. IMO
