Default which upgrades?

okay guys i guess i'm asking which upgrades should i buy for my 2.0 truggy,and buggy.My rear hub bearings are always going out so i'm wondering should i go with the losi rear hubs or go with the kingheadz ones.I've heard the kingheadz's have larger bearing for the outside.On the buggy i have the top plate and front and rear chassis braces already so they are covered.Just let me know which upgrades you think i should need because these bearing failures are pissing me off.

If it's the losi aluminum hubs that cause this then ya go with the king headz, if it's just the stock plastic losi hubs then go with the king headz they are better in my opinion

buy dollar bearings and check after every race. You'll get a few races on the inner bearings and you'll get one or 2 on the outers. Thats what i do.

The KHZ rear hubs are around $65 and worth every penny.
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ear-Wheel-Hubs

I put every option part out there on my truck and I have to say that most of it is just bling and not necessary.

Heres a list of what I would recommend:

The alum rear gearbox inserts.
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ing-Inserts-20

Alum Servo Saver (depends on the 2.0 roller that you have the newer ones went back to the 1.0 saver)
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ervo-Saver-Arm
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ervo-Saver-Arm
KHZ hing pin retainers. (I had issues with the losi adj brace breaking inserts)

Alum Servo Horn (racers edge)
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Hard-Anodized

and thats about it. All the rest is just bling
