Crush spacers for between bearings,
Roll bar stops,
Gold shielded wheel bearings (new item possibly?),
New chassis with hole under motor and screw hole for centre brace,
5mm wheel hex's.

That is it off the top of my head.
It's about time they included the 5mm hexes.....just picked these up, since the last time I used the narrow hexes and washer on my TA04, I ended up rounding off the hex in a new set of Yok wheels

Corally blades fit the new back diff.

Fab i have the following measurements but i will not be held accountable if they are not bang on!

Hold the chassis with the motor area towards you, from the furthest forward hole on the motor mount measure towards the batterys 16mm then straight forward from that point 28.5mm. This is where i believe the center of the hole to be.

Do you mean there are only 2 screws to secure the motor mount on that version and so this corresponds to the middle screws on the old style bulkheads ?

I am measuring from the center of the screw hole nearest the pinion hole in the chassis.

So the dimension I'm looking for is 28.5 - 16 from the furthest motor mount hole to the centre post hole, right ? Just making sure i get it right. Does that looks right to you ?

The new gold stuff sounds cool. Already have a set of ribbed/knurled shock caps, so good to have a spare set. Thanks for the list, I know what other parts I need to get (like a ton of toe blocks).

Here goes:

From the hole furthest forward on the motor mount measure towards the cells 16mm then towards the front of the chassis 28.5mm. The diagonal measurement between the original motor mount hole and the new hole you are going to drill is 24.5mm.
