Questions?? Search for FB on Losi 8ight-E 3.0

Hello all.
I'm somewhat experienced in 1/10 offroad 4wd driving and racing but switched to 1/8 for some adventure.
I bought a second hand Losi 8ight E 3.0 which clearly allready saw some dirt. Quite some wear.

I also received it with silver springs front and back.
I'm thinking about setting it up to stock to have a decent basic start-setup, so I guess I'll have to start with rebuilding the car and changing some parts.
Any advice?
Springs, spare parts, different sway bars needed? ...
Thx in advance.

When we ran these back in the day, we pretty much left it kit setup but put on green rear springs, changed shock oil to 37.5 front, 32.5 rear, and diff oil to 5k front, 5k middle, 3k rear. Shock mounting positions on arms were on inside both front and rear. If you need more cornering, we typically dropped to 2.2 sway bars front and rear. Good luck.
