do top do an upgrade kit?
Bottom chassis - LiPo chassis allows you to flip the belts so you can balance it a bit lighter.
Shocks - The new ones are definitely better than the v.1 shocks
Optional 1.25mm CF camber link plates allow you to run longer links
The new top deck screws are better. Less likely to strip the heads (deeper 2mm hex) and the screw is .1 mm wider to fit the holes tighter.
CF Arms are lighter. I have yet to fully test their durability.
Alloy steering blocks. Last longer, unless you happen to bend one. I haven't yet. They are less prone to having the camber link ball studs pull the grub screw out of the hole. They're shiny
Alloy rear hub carriers. More durable. I never had a problem with the plastic ones, but others have. I just like them because they match the rest of the shiny bits on my car.
Alloy/CF bellcrank set is stronger and looks nice. The alloy radial Ackerman inserts are a must IMO.
Alloy axle pin retainers. Get them!
Serrated wheel nuts rock! They spin on and off way faster and they hold better.
