    Welcome to the forum!!! I don't use aluminum.. I know traxxas makes good aluminum though. Why don't you wait and see what breaks and upgrade as u go along? If you ever break a driveshaft buy mip x dutys thosenare near indestructible.
    100Mph isn't fast enough!

    I had both front suspension arms break so far im mainly buying aluminum because it just looks cool and I might buy a lipo kit for it just for safety if im at high speeds to make it a bit sturdy

    Rpm arms would be my first upgrade. Just donít use aluminum arms or shock towers because they will bend. Anything else is fine. This is my stampede. My arms and shock towers are rpm. Everything else besides chassis and trans is aluminum.

    Yes, the parts are interchangeable, look on STRC, they have great high quality aluminum parts that are not extremely expensive. Amazon is the best for buying RPM stuff though, its always cheaper there.
