The BRP bumper offers added protection for your front end components for a minor weight penalty.

The complete HD black belt and arm kit (not just the belt) frees up your drive train.

It needs a rebuild, blow out all the bearings and relube them with something light like royal oil. Even with stock belts you shouldn't have a terrible amount of bind.

The stock shocks on a G+ are pretty good.

If you are bashing around in a parking lot, go to the Losi site and check out the several setup sheets for the XXX-S on both asphalt and carpet.
