Default Sprint 2 Hop Up Parts

Hi I'm trying to upgrade my Sprint 2 Flux with some hop ups especially some carbon fiber chassis parts. Can anyone help me?

Yea HPI's main website would be your best bet to find all the hop ups. Then go to towerhobbies.com and type in the part number from HPI's website. I'm actually trying to find a hop up part for the steering, too much slop.

I just ordered a bunch of upgrades for my Sprint 2.

I ordered all the carbon fiber and a few other things.

Cheezburger, where in NYC are you?

Hmm i'm not sure what it's called; it's on the opposite side of the servo saver contraption. It has an e-clip to hold it down. I narrowed down 80% of the slop to this one piece. It's pretty crazy, the front part of each wheel can actually move like 1.5mm-2mm either horizontal direction.

Oh and i'm in Brooklyn serpent.
