Dang! Graphite shocks.

I think that is as trick as you can possibly get. No need to go any farther.

Dont get caught up in the hopup hype.Not needed.
If it isnt a worlds edition car then you wanna look at upgrading to the newwer belts.They help with efficiency,performance and runtime.They also do help with temperature of the batts and motor.Make sure the shock towers have a lil X in the middle of them.If not grab some of the newwer version one's so they dont break.Then simply goto www.teamlosi.com and check on some setups keeping an eye on the top right and what the track is like.See if there is a track like yours and try that one.
Goodluck with the car.Nice cars.

Team secret is to cut the upper deck in half inbetween the servo mounts with a VERY FINE saw.That way not much plastic is removed.This makes the only problem with that car(maintance) alot easier.
If doing this mod go buy some T3-B3 servo mounts and use the spacers to bring the chassis back together when mounting the servo.Just makes things a lil easier and you can even leave the motor in when rebuilding the rear diff or working on it.
If racing on a dusty track put some black tape to cover the fine cut hole.
