If your truck is stock, I would get some longer tierods to do the steering mod and whichever M2C suspension mounts you can afford after that, starting with the D block.

A= Front of front arms
B= Back of front arms
C= Front of rear arms
D- Back of rear arms

Get the Integy Front Caster Blocks and Rear Hub Carriers and make your RC8T more durable, as they are made out of alloy! Other than that, you don't need any aftermarket parts to run the car!
