This is only a guess, and I MEAN, only a guess

Alloy wishbones mounts
Alloy shock bodies (threaded?)
CVD's all round
fully ball raced
Alloy Machine cut motor mount and cam
Slipper clutch
New Diff screw set
Improved steering arms
C/F chassis/top deck

Maybe some mods we are trying here in the UK, who knows, if they market the kit and basic components in the kit are not right, the car will flop, no point in that is there. Some of the issue's can be explained away due to the cost, but if you are going to market it against the likes of the XXX4 G+ and Yokomo, it has got to be the mutts nuts.

I think one that that US drivers may expect is some form of carbon style suspension parts like on the AE and Losi vehicles.

Carbon fiber chassis and upper deck would be a good improvment from sport to pro. Also threded shock boddies would be an awsome idea. This buggy,(I think) could be a huge hit in a pro version if Academy puts out.

depending on how serious you are, I really don't think you need the carbon bottom deck from what I hear.

I would say if you buy it, look into getting the following:

Titanium turnbuckles
Full completer Bearings
Foams for the stock tires ( stock foams could be stiffer )

Optional but what I have ( or will have ):

B4 shocks all around
Slipper clutch

I think thats about it.

I have not heard of any intentions to make Graphite plastic parts for the SB, I may be wrong there, but I have not heard it, and to be honest, I don't realy think it needs it as the suspension components are beefy enough to be stiff and strong without Graphite. To make Graphite parts requires new moulding processes and new moulds too.

I don't feel the need, but remember this Pro model will be compared to the other pro models, and when it comes to it that graphite parts will make a difference. Though, if the price relects non-graphite suspension parts, I am all for that!

Sorry about not responding quicker, had to feed the daughter.

Not sure about Bk2 shocks. I think though people are running shocks from the XXX on the buggy, CookieMonsta might know.

I run AE stuff exclusively.

You may also want to try the rear chassis mod. Alittle work with the dremel is all it takes and you get better rough track handling.
