Default Nitro Tc3 Recommendations

Hi,
I will be getting a nitro tc3 rtr at the end of this month and i cant wait! My first nitro I have an electric right now 1/10 scale. The first thing is i will practice and get to learn the car but after that i will be racing later on and i wanted to know what are the best hop ups for the car arms, hubs, engine, electronics, batteries, Pipe, Tools, chassis, etc.. There are so many hop up parts made by so many different companies and i dont know which one to choose from?!? Graphite, Aluminum etc... I will also be needing setups... If you guys would be kind enough please list some things that are at top quality and worth the money Thank you Very much I appriciate it
Cheers

I recomend upgrading the electronics first then adding a two
speed once you get familiar with the car.

Barry Baker's car is box stock. I would reccomend putting 1 1/4 inch long 4-40 bolt in the front (& rear) shock towers into the diff. Look back through this thread for more links, and part lists. Of the 6 bolts that hold the diffs together, leave the middle 2 out, and use the long 4-40 bolts with washers through the access holes in the shock tower into the diff cases. {also known as "the Fix"}
