Right at the moment, I have a list that goes.
CRC Centre Spring Kit
CRC Side Spring Kit
0.18" springs for the front
Damper Lube, Light and Heavy
98,100, and 96 Spurs
Tyre wise, I'm waiting to see what comes with the car, otherwise I'll get a set of purple fronts and grey rears (probably CRC or Jaco's)
Bodyshell, Parma speed8
Anything else? I noticed the front ride height spacers too, are these a requirement?
And what about damper oil for the VCS shock? the starting sheet suggests 35wt oil, I have 30, 40, 50 and 60 in my pit box... any suggestions?

In my opinion, the best tuning aids are a complete assortment of center shock springs from CRC. These seem to change the handling of the car more than anything else. Stiffer spring, more steering. Softer center spring, more rear traction. Its a balance thing. Stiffer center spring more HIGH SPEED steering.
All I use are red side springs. Whites are what come with the kit. I recomend buying the whole kit for the $6.00 and trying the stiffest and the softest so you can see how they affect the car then you will know which way to go when you want a different driving car. This is for both side and center springs. Front springs .018 or .020 will probably take care of most of your needs.
Details count in 1/12. Learn to set the tweak. Be sure you can set your toe. I set camber so the tires wear even and leave it at that. I use the old skool front end, but I am not an expert driver, so this is just advice. I have no trouble with any spur, but I use a 98 or 100. With new untrued tires, I would start with a 25 or 26 pinion. I run a rollout in the low 40s on a medium to large track.
Most of all
