Default Losi 8ight upgrade from 1.0 to 2.0

I know this is an old subject, but I can't seem to find the info that I am looking for. ANy help is appreciated. Is there a concise list of upgrades so that I may be able to take my 1.0 to 2.0, or at least pick the ones I think will help the most? Any recommendations as to which are most important. I just haven't had time to do all this stuff earlier. Thanks for your help.

Default List

Shock towers front and rear
rear arms and hubs an hinge pins
front hub carriers
all the tie rods
center diff mounts and the new break pads (must have)
rear center drive shaft

radio tray 2.0, the should be it?
I don't have the chassis or radio tray yet, so I call mine the 1.5 losi eight
I got must of my stuff off eBay.
The 2.0 buggy body will fit the 1.0 chassis

just get the eight 2.0 chassis and the longer rear center axle and 2.0 body
and replace with the 2.0 parts as the 1.0 parts ware.

I did the chassis and the rear drive shaft first and that was by far the most important thing to do it makes a big difference. I have been slowly upgrading as I go but the chassis was the best upgrade to date.
