Try the 10* hubs, 0* knuckles, a set of springs, and sway bars to start. Also, albiet not an upgrage, you should consider getting a driveshaft replacement tool . These cars will flatten drive pins over the course of a few races. Replacing the pins instead of the entire shaft will save you lots of wear and tear. Not to mention lots of $$$$

My kit came with 12* hubs. I thought I read that it comes with 10*? Am I wrong?
