    The first thing you need to ask yourself is "what am I gonna use this for"...bashing? crawling? scale crawler?scale trail?hill climber?..once you figure this out it makes it easier to decide what upgrades are a want and what ones are a must.

    I suggest every upgrade except for metal lower links.... I like to keep mine plastic. The flex is forgiving and the plastic slides way better over stuff, especially rocks. Also consider changing a few things at a time so you can see the changes in performance. This won't be your first so this way you will know where to spend your bucks the next time round.
