to make this thing really fast put a mamba competition X package setup in it. Check out this project on BYT. This truck is a buddy of mine and this thing is hella fast and bullet proof. if you follow this project you will be set. if you can't view the thread lmk, I will copy and paste the thread and send it to you in an e-mail

Since you have one of the first ones....you will need to do some things to the drivetrain (AE has since fixed) You need to shim your diffs and glue the diff D ring to the outdrive. You need to install outdrive sleeves on the OD of the outdrives. You need to install a washer where the motormount screws are on the chassis. Total cost of the parts are about $10.
You will want to tighten up the steering as well. You can go to Tony Phalen's website www.competitionx.com and find the steering fixes.
