I would suggest that you build car first and race it a time or two and see how you like it before buying a bunch of stuff.

I still suggest you build it and race it before buying parts
this sounds like you second car and for stock racing and some 19t spec racing you will be in good shape.

Yup, no need to go all out on hop ups, unless your name is Randman
If you have alloy shaft holders you're in pretty good shape already for some stock and 19t racing. A range of springs would be a big help
For quick shock position changes the titanium top links are nice
Alloy battery strap is a nice touch if you don't like tape, I don't have the time for tape, and getting decent stuff in the UK is harder since it's not popular. I also got a kit from a batch that had the plastic strap missing, good excuse to buy an alloy one
I don't have any alloy hubs, no need for them other than looks. Although if I did add them weight would not be a problem, even with 3300's I have to add 10grams to get over 1500g.

Looks to me that Steve has the blue alloy shaft holders in stock
They are the first thing you want to buy, otherwise you'll go through quite a few spurs

Yup it's one of the annoying things about the Cuda, they really should make them kit items, the plastic ones just aren't up to the job
