To many mods to list but the latest is the BCE chasse. By the way King Headz are worth it.

The only thing on my 2.0 that isnt stock is the rear camber links,which i changed to the 1.0 type because they are 5mm and they dont strip out like the 4mm ones.

I love this buggy in its stock form even down to the fact that i am still running the book setup. Its not the type of buggy imo that you need to change setups every where you go.

Why is the King Headz front shock tower a must? Are people breaking the stock one?

The first batch of front towers were too thin and people kept breaking them. Losi updated their tower a long time ago.

The KHZ towers are much thicker the stock and weigh about the same if not less. They look so much nicer too.

My car is bone stock (including the version 1 front shock tower). The only thing that I added was the aluminum steering servo arm. Only other difference out of the box is the shock mod.

IMO there is absolutely no need for some of the "aftermarket upgrades"

I have snapped 3 of these in half from wrecks that shouldn't break anything. I went back to the stock (updated) version and have yet to bend or break one and I have even had a new driver cross the track and smack me head on.

I have never broken or bent up a rear shock tower either. Your really just wasting $60 on those 2 pieces, but they do look good I will admit.

Aluminum top part of the Servo saver, Aluminum servo Arm, and adjustable Hinge pins.

King Heads rear hubs is a good upgrade, since it gives you a bigger outer bearing.

The BCE chassis is not a needed update, unless you want to modify some parts. Its minor, but you should be aware of them

Not an attack, but have you tried it?

Also, I'm curious to know what parts you had to mod. I don't remember modding anything to put my chassis on.

I don't run Truggy, but I see your point on that.

Not sure why you have an issue with your steering post. Mine lock just like they do on the stock chassis w/o a top plate, and my holes lined up on my mud guard, or they were so worn out I just didn't have to mod them.

Then again this is all on my buggy, but I see how those can be a deal breaker for someone else.
