you need the normal parts ,like streering hubs, rear hubs ,arms(front and rear) caster blocks. The lower shock towers ,you dont really ned them unless you are running foam carpet, i ran the lower towers in asphalt and didnt noticed any change on the car.

lightweight bulkheads have a little less material making them lighter (i think about 2 ounces) I have them but i never weight them against each other.as far as the hexes Im not sure ,The ndrive shafts are strong enough for the spool, thats all i run.

LW Bulkheads – 28 Grams

The only thing I found that seemed to work on the much more tires was buggy grip.

Is that sweep tyres better than Sorex ones on Carpet tracks?
Sorex dishes are terrible I think thats because they are made up with very hard compound under stress they can't flex but breakes

Does anyone know the part number for the servo horn set, not the servo savers but the horns that also come with the kit?

Thanks
