    Green Rustler vxl build opinions?

    Im upgrading my rustler vxl. I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on the parts I plan on using, if you think I should use something else please tell me why the parts I chose are bad.

    Parts I have installed:
    Velineon esc fan
    Traxxas blast motor heat sink (might replace)
    Green rpm a-arms all around
    Pro-line road rage tires on f-11 wheels (front are on desperado rims because the prices are ridiculous for them anywhere I looked since they are discontinued on road rages so I will get f-11 rims when they wear out)
    These axles: http://m.ebay.com/itm/HD-Super-Duty-...281?nav=SEARCH
    Black traxxas wheelie bar (probably gonna replace with green)

    Parts I want to add:
    Green traxxas wheelie bar
    Green rpm gear cover
    Green traxxas aluminum wheels nuts
    Green traxxas aluminum shock caps
    Green traxxas shock springs
    Black lower chassis
    Black upper chassis
    Black or green rpm front bulkhead (not sure yet)
    Black battery hold down plate
    Black rpm rear shock tower
    Black rpm front shock tower
    Black rpm body mount
    Green traxxas aluminum axle carriers
    Green traxxas aluminum steering blocks
    Green traxxas aluminum caster blocks
    Traxxas rubber tires for wheelie bar
    Traxxas big bore shocks
    Black or green rpm gear box
    Luxury RC green e clips
    Green integy heat sink with fan or black clip on integy heat sink if I replace the one I have
    Luxury RC black aluminum tie bar
    Black rpm wheelie bar mount
    Loctite blue 242 (I think this is the right one)
    Green rpm wide front bumper
    Luxury RC green body clips
    Maybe some green shock socks
    Stock rustler body with a wrap I found on ebay
    Opinions and suggestions of parts I may have missed would be appreciated

    I wouldn't waste my money on big bores. The Slash Ultimate GTR shocks are better. Mine are STRC shock bodies and caps with Traxxas titanium shafts and modified dampers.

    Don't really know they have alum. caps stock and left them alone.
    The ultra's on yours now are good with a little tuning. I like to tune my own so I usually build them from scratch. All my r/c's shocks have some sort of mod to them depending on what I use it for.

    Yeah the shocks I have are fine the reason I want big bores or gtr's is because I would like something stronger.(and now that I got a few small upgrades I can't stop. I need more lol)
