I had mine for almost 2 years but maybe I don't run as often as you guys. So I figured it was worth it.

I find the Parma T2 bumper fits quite well, and only needs a little modification with an xacto. You have to carve out a recess for the top plate and make some grooves in the bottom.

Parma should have a bumper designed for the 416 in the near future as well.

The kit ones are white, so it depends if you want the extra springs to colour match? In terms of performance, there should be no difference between the whites and milky blues. If you race asphalt, consider getting HPI Pro 4 silver and blue springs.

Pink are between gold and white so you might want them too... personally (with the 416 anyway) I never needed to go harder than silver
