Sounds great, is it your first car or do you already got a charger and springs etc.?

Default what hop-up parts I should pick up

AresPro3;

The Car sounds pretty well hopped-up already.

My suggestion is to install an Upper Deck.

The upper deck significantly reduces Chassis flex and the Car scrubbing off speed in the corners.

Next buy a full set of the 27mm Pro-linier Springs and you should be good to go.

It isn't my first car, so I have all the radio equipment etc. Just my first time with an on-road car. I used to bash a Losi XXT.

Okay, talk to the guys at the track, and get the proper tires. Ask the fast guys. The correct tire, is mandatory.

Next, get a good selection of springs and shock oil. It's also important to have the right gearing, so get some pinon and spur gears, if you dont got them already. The guys at the track, can suggest a good starting point for the gearing.

Here is a picture of the track I race on in my home town, they have a decent amount of tracks too. So I'll be sure to ask the shop owner and racers there what are the good combinations.
