Default Getting an 8ight-T!!

Hi, I'm getting a losi 8ight-t rtr truck for my birthday and wanted to know if there are any upgrades besides for the steering servo. I already have a nice steering servo and am going to move the stock steering servo to the throttle servo. I wanted to know about the tires, and other stuff that may be weak?

1. I would get the alluminum rear bearing inserts for the rear diff housing, it will prolong the rear ring and pinion gear.
2. Also get the center alluminum bearing insert.
3. CVD condoms
4. add 2 alluminum clutch shoes with the two carbons that come on the stock clutch.

dude. the ONLY difference between the rtr chassis and the kit chassis is the kit chassis has a coating on it and its milled to reduce weight
