Post New to Electric Off Road

Hello, I am new to electric off road. I am stuck in quarantine and cannot go to my normal spot to run my nitro 1/8 scale buggy or my 1/5 scale buggy. So I recently purchased an Arrma typhon 6s BLX Brushless RTR. this is a little different than what I am used to, is there anything that I should upgrade to get better performance or is this buggy okay the way it is. even recommendations for future upgrades are welcome.

I hear the ARRMA shocks leak, there's some YT videos out there with guys swapping out the cartridges/seals from other brands to fix the leaks, I think that's the only problem that needs to be addressed AFAIK

I always thought the shocks from the 6S Typhon are normally the "go to" shocks for swapping out the less than stellar ones that come on the 3S Typhon... https://www.arrmaforum.com/forums/ar...2?prefix_id=72

Default Decent asphalt / road tires for 1/10 4WD Buggy 2.2

Any recommendations on a buggy tires that is suitable for on-road mostly? I think the dirthawgs are hard to find these days or are discountinued.
AKA or Pro-Line? Thanks

Like most rtr's, electronics are usually cheap to keep the cost down. First upgrade on almost any rtr would be a better steering servo.
