Default "necessary" slash upgrades?

What would people suggest the "necessary" slash upgrades are, in order of importance?

Depends on what you're doing. I can only speak from the basher side.

RPM Front Bumper
RPM Rear Bumper
RPM A-Arms
RPM Nerf Bars

Those four should be enough to put your truck well into the indestructible category. The Slash is already tough as hell to begin with.

Bashing, primarily.

If your racing the SSC LCG chassis would be #1..you don't need anything else..*this is if your starting with a platinum or ultimate*
The stock bumpers are fine..the RPM bumpers weigh a ton, especially the front makes the Slash nose dive bad over the bigger jumps, the RPM A arms & shock towers are a good upgrade..I didn't care for the RPM nerfs, they make some body's fit funny..as in they stick out to far.. taking the grease out of the diffs and putting in diff fluid would be a good hop up..

Proline rear skid plate - avoids breaking chassis at rear mounting points
RPM f/r hubs and caster blocks
STRC aluminum steering rack
Kimbrough or some type of HD servo saver
