    so whats next

    i/ve been buying parts for my car here and there and am slowly getting alumium pieces where they need to be and heat sink on the motor but what else can i do other than upgrade to mm5700 or futaba radio
    this is what i've done:
    * big bores all around
    *geolandars/anacondas all around
    *esc fan
    *motor fan/heat sink
    *traxxas wheelie bar
    *aluminm toe link and front and rear camber
    *aluminum hex hubs...cuz others were striped
    *11.1 spc lipo 8000
    *vxl motor esc

    so anything else would be great if its not too costly

    if you feel the need to upgrade, get yourself an aluminum tranny case as it will help with maintaining motor temps and it looks and runs great!

    I wouldn't base if a tower or any part is going to last if you get it ran over by another car/truck. Chances are it wont and you got lucky last time on how you got your truck hit.
    Personaly i like these, right on the home page.

    i wouldnt get the aluminum shock towers, i would stick with stock or RPM. I dont see any advantage to aluminum towers other than maybe stability? Go for the flm tranny case, look up on ebay as they sometimes run $40 specials on blemished cases. Well worth the money, also the flm bell cranks are a good upgrade
