We do test parts from aftermarket companies and do test potential hop ups from time to time, but I currently use very few non-kit parts.
Let's face it, AE does not offer the most useful spring set. However, the silver springs do work very well when a rate in this range is desired. I use silver springs at Tamiya USA's track. If I do not use AE springs I use RSD as my first choice but have run Yokomo and HPI.
I am using a gear diff in the front which is not stock but it is an AE diff. When I run a spool I run an AE slipper spool.
When I use a putty front diff I prefer to use Zeppin steel outdrives. These last longer than the stock cups.
In the shocks I prefer RSD bladders. I drill the shock caps. The o-rings vary - I use stock o-rings in one set of shocks and I have Kyosho x-rings in another. RSD work well too.
I use RSD DCJs although you can get away with the stock drive shafts if you use a gear diff.
Other than that some aluminum screws but it is basically a stock kit.
