Default When are aluminum parts necessary?

I'm still new to this and have been searching but cannot seem to find the answer. I know that for some parts, upgrading to aluminum is good such as aluminum shaft (for shaft driven cars) and aluminum outdrives, etc..

So I recently acquired a very well kept Associated TC4 from someone in this forum and I am in need of getting the servo mount.
  1. Should I get the standard plastic servo mounts or upgrade and buy the aluminum ones? Aside from the nice blue anodized look and the strength of aluminum, is there any advantage
  2. For the steering assembly, should I upgrade that to aluminum as well?
  3. What other parts do you consider important to upgrade to aluminum?

yes the aluminum steering should function a lil better but it always depends on what its for. Race or fun personally i did start start buying unnecessary upgrade parts but something else always broke. Id say drive it till it breaks them upgrade. And have fun
