I would not be surprised if an update for this car will be announced relatively soon.~

you don't need the whole center conversion. it will bolt up to the stock upper deck. it consists of a metal bracket that relocates the upper hinge pin slightly downward and outward (shortens the upper arm). it also has new upper hinge pins, carbon fiber front shock tower with inserts to capture the front of the new hinge pin, plastic rear hinge pin holder with carbon fiber bracket to bolt up to the stock upper deck. its a pricy conversion but it made a definite improvement in steering.

Definitely get steel gears for the differentials. The ones that come with the car will not withstand hard racing.

I haven't had any issues with stock gears. I've been using them for 3-4 months now.. (Yes racing and practices every weekend,,)

Mugen clutch bell and the 28 and 29T pinion gears. Also change the 46 and 51t spurs that come with the kit to 45 and 50.

What engine and pipe have you got?

Cheers
