Some parts that will make tuning the car a lot easier:
-Lowered pod plates (allow you to use smaller tires while still maintaining correct ride height, CRC and IRS make good ones that are reasonably priced)
-Lowered front arms (allow you to use smaller front tires while still maintaining correct ride height, IRS sells these)
-IRS rear ride height adjusters (allow you to adjust the rear ride height in .5mm incriments, much finer than the stock AE ones)
-IRS front ride height shims (allow you to adjust front ride height in much finer incriments than the stock AE washers)
-Silva or CRC Shock (much easier to build and bleed)
-.018, .020, .022, .024 front springs
-a set of center shock springs
-CRC graphite servo saver brace (keeps from breaking servo savers in hard crashes.)
-T-bars of different thicknesses (Powerpush makes some that are thicker/thinner than stock to allow you to adjust rear stiffness).
Some spare parts you will want to keep handy:
-Servo savers (if you don't get the brace)
-T bars (replace when they get white lines or cracks)
-bodies (when learning to drive 12th scale you'll go through a few bodies, mainly cracking in the front wheel wells).
Hope this helps. 12th scale is a lot of fun. It may seem like a lot of stuff to buy all at once, but it's all relatively inexpensive and most of the parts transfer from one car to the next.
