    New MERV. Necessary Upgrades?

    I am looking into buying a MERV Brushless edition. I do not want to spend over $400 all said and done but I need to get the MERV, and a new charger for it that can also charge LiPo. Are there any necessary upgrades that I should get? (Shocks, shock oil, tires, wheels) Thanks in advance!

    Put some 3000wt diff fluid in the shocks. Onyx makes some decent lipo chargers for a good price. Or get the traxxas ez peak plus charger.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    Welcome to the Traxxas Forums!

    Don't know how much you'll have left over after the MERV, but you'll
    want a quality charger, and LiPos. That should put you at about $400.

    Yes. It's not really a strict budget but I do not want to deviate by a lot. I will buy a couple SPC batteries. What charger would you recommend?
