Mostly put on the P3 rockers and set the pushrods to the outtest position on the arms, and some nice onroad tires and it should be fine

If you race onroad....get the proline roadrages. I use the foams that have the stiff outer rings with them. Very little tire side roll with them. If you put limiters in the shocks you'll get a better center of gravity. I use plastic tubing made for ice maker supply line that you can get from the hardware store. It only takes between 1/4" to 3/8" pieces in each shock to lower the ride height. Be sure to use the same length piece in each shock. Get the shift point to get to second gear a little fast than you would for dirt. The tires hook up a lot better and in my opinion without the tire spin you have to shift a little faster. If there isn't a body requirement....heheheh get a sedan body to cut down on wind resistance. The stock body isn't to bad or the crowd pleaser bodies either however.... on a breezy day you'll notice a difference in the corners. That breeze can tip you over in the corners.

I use the proline Corvette body. It fits pretty good. Here's a pic.

Hey, I run a Revo also onroad. I found that the stiffest springs, proline 40 series bow ties and 80wt. shock oil work awesome. For added grip i zip tie the suspension down just a little, still leaving some travel to absord. I also have a lot of camber in the front and rear

Those are the Proline RoadRages. There real good for pavement. The only other onroad tire I would consider would be the 40 series RoadRages. There wider with the same tread pattern. Some people like the 40 series. I personally think the ones I have are just right for me. I use HPI rims. The P3 rockers are a good fairly low cost upgrade for onroad that ogreasurada mentioned.

My LHS put on an on-road race and it was a blast, alot different than racing in the dirt! I just used P3 Rockers, changed my oil, and ran stock tires. Didn't want to buy new tires as it was only for a day... But the stock did fine.
