Not much. Get some longer screws for the wing mount and camber links, check your shock ends, and just go through and check all the diffs and shocks.

get longer camber link screws, you can get longer wing mount screws or just loctite them since you dont usually mess with them. replace all the shock ends. and keep a supply of bearings around

What I have discovered so far.

1. Rear hubs bearings will wear out fast (outer). Problem they were to small. Fix kings head rear hubs (alum). They come with the larger diameter (outer) bearings. don't buy the losi alum hubs you will still experience the same problem.

2. Shock tower screws F/R. Problem they have a tendency to back out. Fix use longer screws with lock nuts.

3. Handling. Problem it turns on a dime. Fix hang on and enjoy.

4. Speed. Problem its fast and smooth. Fix hang on and enjoy.
