Alum shock caps, quick change motor mount, we bought my son the 8ight rtr and thats all weve had to change out, it wouldnt hurt adding a set of alum clutch shoes to make it a 4 shoe clutch but other than that its a very durable car....

if it aint broke don't fix it, i would upgrade as parts fail or get worn. who knows, you may go the whole season without needing a part.
