Default NTC3 hop-ups opinion

Hi guys,

I would welcome anybody's opinion who has an experince with the below hop up parts I am thinking of getting before next season will kick in. I am strictly looking to improve performance, no beauty contest here ........

Here are three things I am inclining to (order means importance in my view):

1) K-factory low CG tank

I need a new tank since the old one was penetrated by RD Logics header. It's just sits too close (I am running MT12 engine) to the tank. The header moved and it was enough to melt rear end of my tank. But I was looking into this one for a while anyways

2) Clutch

I've been using three shoe clutch with hard springs. It's been all right, but I hear from people who use push type one (centex; is Centex a brand or system used by many manufacturers) that it makes a world of difference. I am aware of the adjustability advantage, but what else, because to me it doesn't justify the money spent especially if I race on pretty much two tracks during a season. So not much variety. So far I found following clutch systems:



3) Chassis

My current stock chassis is pretty beat up, scratched after two seasons of racing. It's not tweaked though and it works fine. So I am wondering whether one of those aftermarket ones which tend to be lighter and from higher quality alu would improve a handling of my car. I am not willing to spend more than 40USD on this, so the one from BMI is out of question. The one below is in my range:


I greatly appreciate anybody's qualified opinion.
