Default get ready for race season questions?

Hey I'm getting ready for race season and have to replace acouple of broken parts on my kanai 3. my question is should I upgrade to the sp2 specs or what hop ups are the most important on the sp2 to upgrade my k3 with, I had a lsd diff in front but i'm going to change to regular cause its to hard to handle for me. I also have a top p5 and it has insane power i'm conidering selling it and getting something with less top end because the track here is so small and really don't use the full power but its nuts almost uncontrollable for me any way any help please
Thanks
Jon

the sp2 shocks are great and much better and the steering linkage is great also you might consider changing those otherwise the k3 is preety good buggy ,and as for getting rid of the p5 dont its a great engine maybe change the gearing a little like change to a smaller clutch bell might reduce your top speed a little and get a bottom end pipe like 053 or the jp1 that will suit you perfect for the short track

You can try the SP2 shock bladders I suppose. The front shocks are identical to the K3 and the rears are pretty close. I would just run the K3 as is or buy an SP2.

I have another question would that front lsd diff make it feel uncontrollable when driving it it just felt like it pushed corners and wasn't planted on straight aways? also what degrees should the front hubs be I have them at 20 right now but see theres a 22 degree in the box if i go to those do I have to use a diffrent upper arm thats in the box to it looks alittle diffrent then the one on the buggy now
Thanks

The LSD will make things tricky on power in rough sections of the track. I would take it out. I am not sure on the upper arms. I thought they had one for 17 degree caster blocks and a different one for 20/22. 22 will make the car more stable on the straight and is what I always ran on my 777. The best way to figure out the upper arm is to mount the caster blocks up and see which upper arm fits the best.
