With the aluminum front end you will make your car capable of turning under everything on the track. I noticed a huge difference in how tight I could turn with the upgraded front end which really kills it on the small tight tracks. If you run tight tracks that front end setup is superior.
You may also want to look at how you drive. Some are heavy on the brakes which turns to heat and can cause melting of the center diff mounts. The aluminum upgrade would be your solution there. I myself haven't had this problem but if you read further back you will catch wind of it.
Best thing to do is build the kit stock and see where you think you could get the biggest gains. For me I was tired of getting driven under in the corners so I attacked the steering and accomplished my goal.
With the durability of this car you will find yourself getting upgrades instead of replacing parts. Obviously parts like the clutch assembly and brakes wear but that's pretty much it. Love the Serpent and she will love you back.
Be sure to thread lock well as you dont want a Rattle Snake
Anything else let us know, what motor are you thinking?
