    $100 to spend

    So I have 100 bucks to blow on my new merv. It is totally stock other than some aluminum rods. Any suggestions?

    Stock shocks are not the best. I'd replace those.

    Shocks aren't the best, but wouldn't be the first thing I would replace. RPM A-arms and knuckles are a great start. At least have em on hand until you start having problems with the stock ones. And different wheels and tires. Those are the first things I did and would do it the same way again. Then LiPo's! Haha

    Agreed, start with rpm arms and rpm carriers. And if your running a brushless merv, and your not running a lipo... get a lipo! I personally wouldn't run my merv without the center diff, but if you like wheelies on the merv don't put the cd in.

    Get some new tires and rims. depending on the size of the tire it will stand up the ride height and make it overall a little faster. Wheels to me are a manditory first upgrade!!! If i had a $100 to burn i would not be posting it here i would be at my first hobby shop i seen. then telling everyone where that $100 went!
