Default 8ight 2.0 RTR Upgrades

Im new to RC Buggies but not new to RC's, I recently purchased a Losi 8ight RTR. I choose the RTR because I would rather have spare parts, engine, radio, servo's etc for the $170 difference. I have upgraded the following over the winter and am wondering a few things.

After seeing how "fine tuned" these cars are compared to my Monster Trucks I'm a little worried a screwed up.

OS Speed 21XZ-B
OS - T2060SC Pipe
Fiorni Engine Mount
Hitec HS-7945TH Steering
Hitec HS-7940TH T/B
Hudy Horns
Center Smart Diff
Front Rear Aluminum Braces
Carbon Fibre Front/Rear Shock Mounts
Upgraded Shock All Aluminum
Titanium Shock Mounts/Pins
Titanium Turn Buck/Hinge Pins
Proline Tires/Various Sets
All Protek Ceramic Bearings
Werks 4 shoe clutch
Losi 7.2V 2000mah 2S Lipo
Have new Fiorni Chassis (Not used yet)

I should have asked for advice first but allot of critical judgement when it comes to adding new parts. Shoot first, ask later

Anything you would add, change or remove?

Put the plastic chassis braces back on. Needs to flex.

Also get the 2.0 TFC... Worlds of difference.

Fix the your throttle linkage. It will blow out servos like no other set like that, probably want to put the stock throttle horn back on.

tini coated hinge pins .. if still using stock ones ..
