Default Your best upgrades ?

What upgrades have you made to your rides over the years that have truly turned out to be worth the price you paid ?

For me it was

Universals and plus 2 hexes on a eb48.2/3.

Tekno drive shafts and outdrives on a scte .

Switching to tekno Pinion gears with the big 5mm set screw .

I felt the Crescenzi brake and steering rack for the blue chassis rc10gt were significant improvements that helped laptimes right away.
The rc10gt2 dropped laptimes even farther straight out of the box.

Brushless/Lipo/2.4 technology are amazing that make me shudder to think about cutting comms, equalizing batteries, and clothespin frequency boards not too long ago.

CVD rings, or shrink wrap to make sure the pins don't fly out!

Lexan scissors

Just a few things off the top of my head.

**edit**
Forgot to add gear diffs for my associated 1/10 vehicles! If I were running ball diffs on my dusty home track I'd spend more time wrenching on the tranny than driving. I always loved ae ball diffs and never had a problem with them, but now with a track at home I run so many laps it just doesn't make sense to run the ball diff. Plus I have two kids who run, and it just saves a ton of maintenance time.
