v2r would be better, it's little more for the kit but you get a lot more hop-ups with it. are you going to Cam for the ROAR race this weekend?

Having one of each, the v2r is the better deal (for just reinforced plastics and included CV's alone).

In either case make sure you pick up 8 bearings for the steering and suspension pushrods (I think they are 5x8mm) to avoid installing the oilite bushings

You can try making these changes...

Red rear sway bar
3 hole pistons front and rear
40wt oil front and rear
Blue front and Yellow rear springs for medium traction surface or White front and Blue rear springs for high traction surface.

The 3 hole should soften the way shock "packs" when compressed and will likely make the car feel slightly more reactive.

Keep the yellow sway bar in front
