Default UPS for a Revo 3.3

I'm fairly new to R/C cars and I'm looking to one up a few buddies who also purchased a couple Revo's. What are some decent upgrades that will give me the edge.


I currently have:

Traxxas Wing/Mount
THS racing exhaust
Motor Saver Air Filter
Traxxas Aluminum Pushrod



Everything else is completely stock.

Any advice on tuning (yes I've read most of the tuning threads ;P), some fairly easy to install up's would be perfect

Thanks!

Run RPM front arms no matter what. I don't know why it would be hard to find RD Racing carriers, RD Racing still sells them and it is one of the best upgrades you can do. RD Racing Carriers I ran these for 2 full seasons of racing at the Nitro Pit with huge air and high speeds and never had a single problem.

Also install the variable damping kit for the shocks. Slayden says it makes a big difference. Here is a link to his setup. http://www.traxxas.com/products/nitr...09_slayden.pdf
The reason this setup doesn't have the sway bars listed on it is because he said the track was extremely rough, and when its that rough he disconnects them. Otherwise always run the sway bars, he usually runs the lighter ones. Here is a great vid of what a Revo can do when properly setup and driven by one of the best. Pro A Main Manufacturers Cup 08

I ran the rpm's up front, but for racing, I liked the stiffer arms, the rpm has alot of flex.

They must have redesigned them, They were discontinued at one time, yeah they are a must if you ask me.

yeah the 5t tank is 150. I ran it on my revo, any truggy tank will work with the tekno kit though. I just hated the 3.3 tank, it leaks around the cap to easily
