Default Looking to get back into the Hobby, Hyper 7?

Have been out of the hobby for some time. Haven't done anything in about 5 years when I last ran gas truck. Kind of saddens me that GT isn't that popular any longer.

Was originally looking at a FT SC10 or something along those lines, just because the indoor season is approaching.

I plan on doing some outdoor this summer, and we're re-building the track in my buddy's backyard.

I have a guy from work with an older Hyper 7 Pro with Hyper 9 Shocks (big bores?), and an RB-Modded OS 3-port. Comes with like a 2pl radio, which I want to quickly get rid of.

Best thing is, the guy wants to trade for some Jeep stuff I got around. Pretty fair trade as far as money goes, but can I still get Hyper 7 parts being that it is two generations old? I have heard that some Hyper 8 parts cross-reference, and I see Tower still sells the Hyper 7.

Are there any upgrades I should consider out of the box? I am looking for longevity first and foremost.

Who knows, it may even become a SC truck still if buggies in this area get less popular.
