Default How would you upgrade this ZX5

Hello Everyone,

I bought this ZX5 3 weeks ago I have added some parts but I need your expert advice on how to improve the performance of this buggy.

Basically I want it to go faster and have a quick response, its likely that I'm gonna drive roughly through mud, dirt in addition to concrete.

A couple of days back I drove smack into the wall at top speed (enclosed area) and busted the mount on the actual servo. So the turning is totally messed up. I guess this means I have to get a new servo.

Anyway, So far I have added:

Carbon Composite chasis and upper plate
Aluminium holders for the suspension
Aluminium Motor Housing
New Tires

I plan to add (this weekend)

New battery - Lipo - I gotta read up on this coz I dont know anything.
new servo
New wing
Carbon composite front and rear shock stay (maybe)

Any advice will be appreciated,

i had a zx-5 readyset version but i upgraded the diff, metal universals, carbon fiber deck and shock towers.... you might want to think of trading it for something else for a basher. i am not kidding you when i say this. i never got to run a full battery pack in my lazer. something broke EVERY time i played with it. i had the traxxas brushless system in it.
