did I miss anything fellas
oh upgrades you can get the kingheadz extended motor mount, rear alu brace, graphite disc and hardend brake pads, closed in wheel nuts(xray or vp pro are good) and my custom fit shock covers for that extra bling you should be looking very good now
Only other thing I would change as a matter of course is the centre diff towers. These can get a bit worn resulting in some front to rear slop of the centre diff outdrive bearings. If you do what aussies 1129 has listed you will have no problems.

Hi Michael - Nope, mine are sweet. I was running the upgrade alloy holders on my 09 and they were a bit sloppy, but the 11 ones are a nice snug fit in comparison.

I have gone from the 09 Spec (upgraded 08) to the new 11. Did my first race meeting with it last weekend. Vast improvement.
More stable, more steering (rotates through the corners better), jumps awesome (the 09 was no slouch in the jumping department, but the new car launches easier and jumps flatter and longer with minimal throttle input), just seems more drivable all round IMO. I just ran my 09 set up, no changes required and was on the pace straight away. Still running the 09 body as the new 11 cab forward body is at the paint shop. This may offer even more steering control when fitted over the older low profile 09 body.
Hope that gives you an idea.

The Eagle has landed! It is confirmed, the kits are on their way to shops as we speak. I picked mine up today. My LHS sold six in one hour.

Love that new kit smell!

Shock caps aren't black unless I did not see a supplemental package. Mine were the same as the 10spec
