the truggy is very solid right outta the box....but u will need alum rear hubs forsure alum servo horn and really u can dial it in from there....i am running a very aggressive setup on my truggy, but i am running 20-20-10 on the diffs and 35-32.5wt w/1.3 pistons on shocks...white/orange springs
but check out tytessman.com for some hb tricks and setups as well....
goodluck

I didn't like the aluminum rear hubs. But like said get the aluminum steering horn. I liked the Josh Alton designer setup on the hb website. I just made small changes from there. I also didn't like the orange rear springs. I used the white front and blue rears with 1.2mm pistons and 35wt

Check the Hot Bodies D8T thread and you will find all the information you ever wanted about this truck..

Box Stock set up to me is so easy to drive, with the exception of the Aluminum servo horn and Mugen captured outer hinge pins.
