I would get the Xenon Rear hubs and front and rear alloy bevel gear holders for starters.

I would get the mid span arms too + offset pillowballs
Get the shim sets too.

I know people like nice alu parts but I would also get the new 3 deg front hub.

and .. a extra diff if you don't want to run a one-way in front

Thats about it

What kind of track are you running on with your previus posted setup ? Asphalt, tight open ???

Also .. are you familiar with the Xenon inserts ? Any recomendations for Sorex tires (28R on carpet) ?

This is the price you have to pay for being in the right place and knowing it all

The track that I race at is a Very High Grip Medium Straight(35m) Very Technical infeild type of track


As far as Xenon inserts go I know them well because thats mostly what I use I prefer the X series insert the best
Gray=hard
Black=medium
Aqua=soft

and the height of the inner is about 4.2~4.4 mm tall so they seem to be the right height for a high grip track ( maybe good for carpet )

I use Black and Aqua the most
Winter time X-Black
Summer X-Aqua when the grip goes down

get the screw aluminum wheel hex hub thingymabobs... the stock ones just snap in place and fall out when you remove the tires.

if your gonna get the aluminum steering rack.. get the ball bearings too.. the delrin bushings are smooth.. but combining the aluminum steering rack along with the bearings make it "butta smooth"

everyone has named the "necessary" hopups above. if your gonna race stock.. and got extra cash.. pick up the Ti axles. thats what i had in my R3 and they work great. they are so much lighter compared to the stock ones. important in stock racing.

another "bling bling" hopup would be to pick up the black chassis. the glitter was never my thing also the aluminum dog bones for the rear... they're lighter than the stock ones. i had them in the front, but they got bent after i took a few hard hits.. so keep the stock ones up front..

last "bling bling" hopup would be the 4 bearing one way. if you like driving with one ways.. the 4 bearing one way is a lot smoother and spins freer than the stock one (2 bushings and 2 bearings)

hope that helps!

We carry both series, but not all the compounds though.
