Default wanted: TTS-01 suggestions

I have purchased a Tamiya Nissan Fairlady Nismo TT-01E kit. I am planning on racing this against a couple of friends at the track where I race my SC10. This track has an asphalt road track. I am planning on racing against my friends and also drifting.
We are planning on using the kit ESC, motor, and tires to keep things even, since we all have TT-01 cars.
I am going to use a Futaba S9451 servo for the steering. and 2S lipo batteries.

Here are the upgrades that I purchased:

tamiya aluminum motor heat sink
tamiya aluminum motor mount
tamiya type E bearing kit
tamiya aluminum center drive shaft and joints
Hpi soft inner tire liner
Hpi medium/soft inner tire liner
Yeah Racing Alloy 50mm Damper Set with hard, medium, and soft springs
4 Hot Works 24mm rims to mount the PVC drift tires to

Are there any other hop-ups that you would recommend?

What weight oil should I put in the front and rear shocks?

Are there any build tips that I should know or be aware of?

Should I build the diff according to the manual? I saw somewhere that a guy suggested the diff gears be cleaned with a degreaser and then oiled, very lightly, with some sort of light machine oil or WD40. Is this recommended?

Should I clean the bearings and reoil them before installing them in the kit?

thanks for any help/suggestions,

I'm running Reedy 3400 lipos, and added 70gms to the right side to get it perfectly balanced side to side. I thought it handled well before, but the balancing made a noticeable difference.
Make sure the suspension is freemoving without shocks attached. If stiff, sand where required.
