For the motor you can get the tamiyas trusty old sport tuned motor. Will give you a boost in speed over the stock silver can.

The frog was re-released a year or so ago and the new shocks on it are very nice. I believe the part number is 9400372.

Get a Trinity Monster Stock or a Komodo 19turn The Original shocks actually work quiet well or like Kufman said replace them with the new versions. The best think you could do is replace the axles outdrives and dog bones with the new versions.
