Aside from the servo mount and motor mount, yes probably. Those items are a good upgrade anyway though.

Does the aluminium steering actually provide more steering? Cheers RC

Does anyone have a link to a good setup made ​​for carpet mid / low grip?
Is the carpet setup that comes with the kit good or is there any other suggestions?

Would it be worth it to step up from a T4 2013 to a 2015? Or should I wait to see if a 2016 is coming out?

You've waited this long, I would just wait.

I've seen a number of people recommend placing .5 shims under the top deck. I assume this creates more flex. Under what conditions would you do this? I would like to hear some opinions of whether this is a good setting.

I can tell you all the fast guys are doing it That's about all I know. I think some are even using 1mm shims.
