the box stock setup is very good.. I just lengthened it.. and put 40 wt associated oil in front ....and you have to kind of try different tires.. tires are basically the only thing I'd concentrate on.. it's hard to advise on tires.. I will drive 3 different tires a race day sometimes

HeY!!!



40wt oil seems way to heavy for off-road the heaviest you should go is 35.... why do you use so many diff. types of tires in one day??? and what types???

I run 35 weight in the front. I find that the front end still works great.

Kford_11, The first thing that I would up grade is...titanium turnbuckles (Lundsford) with cups. Then I would rebuild the shocks with threaded bodies, upgraded hardend shafts and use the BLUE "O"rings! Everyone told me to upgrade to the heavy duty servo spring. I bought it but never put it in and I havnt had any problems yet. Then replace the crappy motor cover with the one from RPM. Then spend the rest of your money on a good fast servo/speed controller.

BrownDawg said just about everything, and i still would reconmend using the hd heavy duty servo saer spring though, there will be a difference. and for batteries it depends if you wanna race, if you do wanna race get the 3300's look for about 1.15s' is all your gonna need for off-road or else if you're just gonna bash then get like some 2400s'... hope that helped you out, and good luck building the kit, and take your time, and look at the diff case in case ya have to shave some access plastic(burrs) and have fun and take your time so you don't screw up.. and for the shocks when you build them use some green slime, maybe get the yokomo shock caps, makes a perfect rebuild for shock every time
