You also need the Aluminum C Block (others can stay composite)

What option parts should I consider buying with a new kit?
None are required but we recommend the following:

TKR5161 V2 Adjustable Hinge Pin Brace A block, 7075 CNC, EB/NB/ET/NT/SCT) - Helps to improve durability on hard crashes.

Warranty Policy:
Tekno RC is the only company in the industry that will give 50% off of parts if returned to them using the General Warranty return policy found on their website. The parts can be lightly used or completely abused, as long as the part is still being produced it's covered!

City Block 2s are the tallest tire I've ever seen. They are 1/2" taller than my Proline Square Fuzzies.

I only run the front brace.
My diffs are 5/7/2 still from outdoors but ill be changing that soon, although they perform fine. Probably going to try 7/7/5 for indoors.

Wheelbase is 2mm F/3mm R
Oh, and I am running the 6x1.5 pistons too, forgot to mention that.

Another set up I intent to try soon is 40/40 Losi oil (37.5 AE) with Green/Green springs.

what does removing a brace do, i know it probably causes the chassis to flex easier in certain areas but how does that affect the trucks performace?
Thanks

It will lock in that end of the vehicle. For example, if you remove the rear brace, the rear of the truck will flex and generate more overall traction. If you get into high grip situations, it can make the truck feel a bit numb or sluggish. Also, if you remove the braces, you have a better chance of tweeking the chassis in a nasty crash. My suggestion: avoid nasty crashes.

Hot Bodies Beams (megabytes) are the tallest tires I've seen.

I'm running blockades which aren't tall tires compared to the HB and still can't get below 27mm in front. I guess I'll have to try the shorter hotbodies springs to get the ride height down.

I know what a low ride height does for performance, but wouldn't it be somewhat counter productive in design to have an up-swept arm angle to get the lower ride height by lowering spring heights?
At what cost does it effect other things?
It just doesn't make since to me considering geometry angles. Seems like the smarter alternative would be to mill out some drop spindle hub blocks if lowering ride height, rather than reducing travel heights with make shift setups to accommodate taller tires. Sounds like a part that needs to be considered for aftermarket deployment.

Plopping down a chunk to get a 410.3 in the next few weeks. Waiting for the holiday sale season to get this done. Hopefully tower gets some decent coupons going. Going 2s 4300 kv pro4 HD for the power plant and the Tekin g2 esc combo. Picked up a spektrum dx4c rx combo and got a Hitec mg5645 high torque servo free. Not what I wanted but it filled a need for now. Somewhat budget minded , I want to keep it around a G. Max amps are my only choice on batteries, seen a lot of guys have almost hour long runs with these. Any thing I am missing? Running on blue grooved indoor and just plain old packed dirt on the outdoors.

010D8 $70 off $399 currently available. That's about as good as it gets, $329 shipped. Use easy pay and make 3 payments of $110. That's how I usually buy kits from tower.

Save your money on the MA packs. They are really nothing special. Just batteries with a super high mah content. They are extremely heavy and big, which will really throw off the balance of the truck. Anyone you see running more than about 15min in a 4x4 sct is either running 3s or more, or is using a super low kv motor.
