You don't need any hop up for this car. For spares I ll get the front plastic spool outdrives (though the kit has one pair for spare), C Hubs (if you want, get the normal plastic one for TA05IFS part #51293) front knuckles (if you break the C hub most likely you ll break the knucles too...and maybe front universal shaft (get the black steel instead coz its tougher).

If you plan to use the spool, get the 46mm steel shafts for the front.

Also, I would consider getting the titanium tie rods for the steering. The camber links seem okay as aluminum.

You might want to get a 1E block for the rear to reduce the toe to 3deg. I think the kit comes with 1C blocks for the front, so you might want to pick up some 1D blocks to try up there as well.

Be sure to get a few packs of spare arms, some front knuckles, and some rear hubs.

Really? Gotta try this out.

Second that. Absolutely hate that chatter/grinding noise at full turn.

The length on the Xray LCD is not the problem, but the pin end of the shaft is larger in dia, so it won't fit in the out drives.

Think a dremel, sandpaper, and fingers of steel can get it in?

I'm going to see if I can get a hold of a set to see what it will take to make them fit. The axle is a bit longer than ours, so it will take some extra shims, but as long as our hex fits on the axle the rest should be easy.
